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.

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

From the moment Bugsnax was revealed, I swore I'd end up playing it just because of how bizarre it looked and how catchy its theme song was. I wasn't expecting it to be a free PlayStation Plus title at launch though, which allowed me to play much sooner than I anticipated with criminally low expectations.

Absolutely delightful work of art while also being 300% nightmare fuel a very well executed concept. Doesn't outstay its welcome solving each "puzzle" of how to catch each snak is incredibly fun and nothing is ever too overly complicated. Heartily recommend it. I have 100% completed it and never done that for a game before to take that as you will.
