An island filled with critters is the setting for one of the more memorable games of the year.

It's got well-observed characters and some genuinely weird moments, but the actual bug hunting isn't much fun.

Bugsnax is a puzzle-adventure packed full of charm, mystery and a surprising amount of emotional depth.

An ambitiously odd game that has an innovative take on Pokémon style gameplay and features some of the most intriguing characters of the year – but is rarely as much fun as it should be.

I thought I was going to have a fun time finding and collecting all the cute bugsnax, but the game makes helping the characters and progressing through the story a much higher priority. Since the story has very dark and unsettling themes for it's deceptively cute art style, I don't think this game would be suitable for children. I'm not very attached to any of the characters
20 / 20
It's a beautifully created game with cute but <REDACTED> snaks. Both an adorable game but also quiet terrifying at times. Also a great collectathon game if you try hard enough. Honestly would love to see a second game in the future to continue the story! After writing this review I'm probably going to play it again to figure out how to get all the achivements.
Actually super amazing game! i thought it was just some silly kids game i was gonna bye for the jokes but, its actually more and very very good. 10/10
9.5 / 10.0
When I first saw the ads for this game I knew I would get it because of it's adorable art style and idea. Little did I know how much of an amazing emotional journey I'd go on while playing this game! I loved getting to solve the puzzles of catching each bugsnax with the variety of tools you collect along the way, but honestly the story and the genuine emotions and interactions
