Little Kitty, Big City could have easily over-relied on its cute cat, forgetting that controlling it and interacting with the world around it needs to be just as pleasant. Instead, a perfectly paced runtime, feline-forward mechanics, and engaging exploration coalesce into a reminder of why we love these animals so much in the first place.

A fun, feline-driven adventure that's only partially held back by it's issues with corny writing, clunky controls, and a few too many hoodie-shaped cat hats.

Little Kitty, Big City gets the assignment, but doesn't completely land on all four paws. The exploration is a blast, the world is delightful, and the side characters can steal the spotlight. I just felt like my time here was too short, and without much going on during it.

The struggle to portray a vivid world and a sense of place results in the game failing to make much of an emotive impact. Once the credits rolled, there was very little about the experience that stuck with us.

Little Kitty, Big City is an adorable adventure that will almost certainly turn you into a cat lover, if you're not one already. It oozes charm and the realistic cat animations are simply incredible, although for as fun as it is to wander about the city, the game leans heavily on fetch quests and gathering up collectibles, which can lead to repetition. If you're someone who thrives on that kind of gameplay, however, then you'll have an absolute blast with this one.

Little Kitty, Big City is a hugely charming, succinct romp that's littered with gags laser-targeted at cat owners. It's light and breezy in the best ways, and although some technical rubs soured my time on Xbox Series X, it's a purr-fectly pleasant time.

I appreciate the work the developers have put into this, and I hope they get a chance to create similar titles in the future.

Little Kitty, Big City is a cozy adventure truly worthy of its feline namesake, which could have benefitted from more commitment to its chaotic side.

Being a cat is every bit as joyful as you'd hope, and Little Kitty, Big City's protagonist makes this short open-world romp a delight from start to finish. Get up to mischief, help out animal friends, trip over human passers-by or befriend them: there is an overall goal to work towards but you'll likely be too busy causing chaos to rush through it. It's just a shame Little Kitty, Big City has a few bugs that need polishing out — but this is still an adorable, enjoyable adventure. Even if you don't have cats, you're going to be hard-pushed not to have a great time.

Little Kitty, Big City is a purrfect addition to Xbox Game Pass and, in our view, is worth checking out if you have a subscription. If we've learned anything from our three hour romp through the city, it's that… we're glad humans have faces. Also that contributing to a circular economy by recycling cans is important. But most importantly, we affirmed what we thought we already knew: that being a silly cat is very good fun. This is the first ever release from Seattle-based developer Double Dagger Studio, and we think they should feel proud for delivering some much-needed, cat-shaped joy to Xbox.

It was a short playthrough, for sure, but there’s a silver lining in the post-game, which offers up even more quests and achievements in the city.

Little Kitty, Big City is paw-sitively dripping with the kind of honest charm that can only manifest in a title that was clearly beloved by every person making it. A delightful feline snack that easily excuses any of its rough edges by way of being so fur-ociously fun and wholesome.

Little Kitty, Big City has a lot of problems with its controls and other technical aspects. In the end those problems did not bother me too much though. Guiding the Kitty through the city, meeting cute little animal friends and just doing what cats are known to do was very pleasant and fun. The game is never too challenging or also never puts any animals at risk, which makes it perfect for a cute little romp over one or two play sessions.
