Super Rude Bear is a tough-as-nails platformer that gives meaning to your every death and provides a nonstop stream of new challenges from beginning to end.
While it might seem easy to write Super Rude Bear Resurrection off as a 2D platformer that solely wants to make players die a shitload of time, that's hardly fair. Instead, it's much better to look at it as a game that encourages creativity and persistence. There's always a way forward or a secret exit down a hidden path. All you have to do is take a deep breath, keep trying, and maybe die more times than you care to admit.
It feels somewhat churlish being so negative about what is in many ways a professionally put together indie game. Many of my complaints could be patched out – although the graphics would need a severe overhaul to prevent the distractions – and it may well be that 'masocore' fans will click with the controls but, unfortunately, for me they were an insurmountable barrier to my enjoyment of the game. Super Meat Boy keeps the crown for now.
If you love games like Super Meat Boy, be prepared to be blown away by Alex Rose's frantic and challenging gem.
Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a tough platformer with the interesting twist of using your previous failures towards your successful run, but sometimes too slippery platforming, mediocre design and distracting companion take away from what could be a fun romp through a terrible time.
Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a fun and unique entry into a genre that is practically as old as gaming. The use of corpses to help make things easier is executed well, although less skilled players may find themselves fatigued by the constant death. The game actively shakes things up with the obstacles it throws at you, and with a great soundtrack it's easy to recommend this game.
Super Rude Bear Resurrection doesn't treat death as a punishment, but rather as an equalizer to the harsh difficulty.
Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a trial of patience, not only when vying to complete levels without dying, but attempting to get past certain puzzles that can quickly raise the death counter to double digits. Even so, the inclusion of persisting corpses makes the game more accessible, something that I am very thankful for. Honestly, I'd probably never be able to finish the game any other way.
Slippery movement and some unreliable mechanics make Super Rude Bear Resurrection a bit harder than it ought to be for new players, but overall offers good challenge and creative level design.
Expertly designed with a brilliant and unique concept, Super Rude Bear Resurrection kept me hooked even in its latter stages, where the game's flaws started to become more irritating.
This Teddy ain't nobody's fool; Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a game where you keep dying but the action doesn't!
Really, anyone should be able to pick up and play Super Rude Bear despite its perceived difficulty. It may not be a classic, but it does enough right to warrant your time and attention.
Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a very fun, challenging and addictive release on PlayStation 4. You'll most certainly die a lot, but you'll also improve your skills as you play, learning from your mistakes and improving your runs. The game has been designed in a way that will pretty much allow anyone to eventually finish it after spending enough time to use all the corpses left behind to reach the goal. Trophy hunters will find in Super Rude Bear Resurrection one of the most challenging Platinum trophies on PlayStation 4 and one that will surely be the centerpiece of the trophy collection of those of you who manage to beat a game that even its creator can't Platinum yet!
I had a lot of fun with Super Rude Bear Resurrection. After the tutorial in which it teaches you the basics, the game will not hold your hand at all. You'll need to learn from a lot of trial and error as you try to find the best solution to each of the tricky hazard-packed areas in the game. Since every time you die you leave behind a corpse, players of all skill levels will eventually be able to get to the exit. If you're looking for a challenging release on PS4, you're definitely going to love Super Rude Bear Resurrection.
Super Rude Bear Resurrection may be the next great super-tough platformer but it doesn't quite reach the high notes of its predecessors.
Overall, Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a platformer, which shouldn't slip under your radar, especially if you like getting kicked in the balls. You'll die over and over again, but you'll have a lot of fun doing so, while some grimey music blasts in the background. Also, be sure to try and beat the whole game without dying, there's a $1000 waiting for you at the end of it.
The game may seem cruel to some players, but it’s just showing tough love.
If you’re new to the platformer genre then this may be a good place to start, and if you’re looking for something akin to Super Meat Boy there will be something to be had here for you as well. Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a largely solid game, but at times it appears the developers tried too hard to usurp the Meat Boy throne and lost out on an opportunity to create something more unique and fulfilling in the process.
A nice twist on Super Meat Boy, I see it more as a swear word creation exercise but whatever
