I think it does a pretty good job of bringing the swinging mechanic into the 3D realm. The game is certainly not perfect, but not as bad as some reviews paint it. Give it a shot if you have the chance.
Some of the reviews outright lie by saying things like the hook isn't responsive, which isn't true at all. I never had any problems getting the hook to work, they obviously just didn't know how to work it.
But yeah I agree with the above poster there. It's a pretty damn good game, but has a few minor flaws that might cause you brief irritation.
