Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back
Top Critic Average
Then there’s Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back, a game that breathes fresh life into the series in the same sense that characters being ripped to shreds in a zombie movie before returning as members of the undead technically have fresh life breathed into them. This is an abomination, and that’s coming from someone who could be considered a bit of a Bubsy apologist.
A middle school jazz performance of disparate design ideas and pacing akin to the unique brand of messy and amateur seen in a flood of steam greenlight asset flips, and if you want that you have cheaper options.
Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is a mess in every single possible way.
Bubsy is a cat-out-of-time trying to find his fit in a world that’s memories of him haven’t been too endearing. Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is a moderately enjoyable game, but it just out of place within it’s current price bracket. Aside from the price, there are moments where Bubsy’s commentary feels rather forced (occasionally annoying), but other times he delivers one-liners that made me chuckle. It feels like Bubsy is trying too hard to be Deadpool-esque in relevancy and self-awareness.
An average platformer overall. It does not particularly excel in any area outside of its presentation, but it is not an entirely bad game either, it just simply lacks in content.
Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is terrible in every way possible and is one of the worst games ever made. This game is the definition of a complete abomination
I'm not sure why anyone spent the time to bring back Bubsy, especially considering how awful this attempt is.
Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is an unfortunate attempt at reviving a franchise that should have stayed dead. Every single aspect of the game is repetitive and tasteless, what leads me to believe that this game was made from corporate thinking.

The honest truth is that this game feels like a cash grab. It's $39.99, and I can recommend many games that are better and which cost half to three quarters less. It's short, lacks a compelling reason for the obscene amount of collectibles, and doesn't do anything new. At this point, you would be better skipping this cat and trying something else.
