"As an HUGE fan of the series, I have to warn you that this is nothing more than a cheap attempt to make a quick buck on a popular series. Its apparent from the very begining that the producers & writers for this cartoon series have NEVER seen a single episode of Stargate SG1. They DONT stick to the story line, the team looks like they escaped from the Galaxy High cartoon series from the mid 80s. The intro theme song could be used to torture prisoners & small animals. MGM should be ashamed of itself for allowing this series to be made. & heres a final fact about this series: the ONLY things it has in common with the Sci-Fi channel series, is A: the name Stargate, & B: the Stargate itself. & on a final note. for those of you who said this cartoon series features great animation, characters & stories, your either A: Employees of MGM, or B: Dont know what good animation is. Final Verdict:
SG-1 Fans should AVOID THIS LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!"

"Compared to other cartoons that are out, this is just a terrible show. The production levels of this are just plain bad and the animation is lousy, it really is your average bad cartoon show that only lasts a season. Compare this to anything current such as Jackie Chan Adventures, any of the Batman cartoons, etc, and it just doesn't come close. Even the new Ninja Turtles, and Sherlock Homes shows are way better. I'd even rather watch that cartoon on PBS on sunday mornings about the kids who travel back to the Revolutionary War, seriously, its more entertaining that Stargate Infinity.And that's just comparing it to cartoon shows. Compare it to Stargate SG1 and it really is a mockery of the show. At the very least it could of had good stories even if they couldn't pull off decent animation. I mean, Star Trek, the Animated Series even managed to have entertaining stories... I think I made it through about three episodes of this show and then decided that Saturday infomercials were a better usage of my time."

"Its just a show for a kid. Its not an art form. If mom and dad are watching Stargate a child could watch this animated spin off. This is something a seven year old can watch. Its no better or worse vs Buzz Lightyear tv series. The Buzz movies are much better. Better animated shows are out there but for $10.00 for 5 episodes its worth it. Its just a cartoon spin off for gradeschool kids. If your over that age watch the series. Its not much better or worse than the japanese tv cartoons. Thats all."
Clashes with SG-1/Atlantis but great way for a # of reasons

"This series was not an official series, and due to the timing of it's release, it does clash on some issues. In the series (set ahead of the other two shows and so free of Goauld) we see a new team who have been framed for treason and are now gate hopping to keep ahead of the aliens responsible for the treason. They also have an ancient, which is seen as a telepathic dragon like creature (this series came out before the ancients were revealed on SG-1 so I don't count that clash against them). The series had good morals like any good cartoon should. Granted some of the animation is cheesy, but there are a LOT of cartoons out there that are cheesy. For pete's sake look at some of our "Live Action" stuff (Crouching Tiger..., Matrix, and Hero, tell me those aren't cheesy). The show is a really good stepping stone for younger viewers too little to follow the story lines of SG-1 and Atlantis. The show is cute, the characters may look different and some of the show is very cheesy but it is definitely a good show. One of the best morals this show shares with SG-1 and Atlantis goes to those ranting about the cheesyness and unofficialness of it, DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER!!!!!! Plus, anything with Jim Byrnes can't be all bad!"
