Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is about as good as a Bubsy game can be. Unfortunately for this sloppy, cheap and noisy platformer, that's an unfathomably low bar to clear.

What looks like a harmless return to the Bubsy franchise quickly becomes a clear lesson in laziness. Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back takes no time to show how little effort was put into a simple platformer. From the controls to the overall spirit of the game, it's hard to recommend anyone try it out, even at its “low” price.

Nobody expected the latest Bubsy game to be any good and I'm sorry to say that those expectations were completely correct. Stay far away from it. Go play Mario or something instead.

I really wanted Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back to be good, or at least entertainingly bad, but I was just left with a tepid, overpriced, and somewhat generic 2D platformer that wasn't funny or fulfilling enough to justify a $30 purchase. If you are really dedicated to the character, I would wait until it drops to around $5 or $10. Once you beat the game, Accolade promises that “Bubsy will return,” so let's just hope his next outing is funnier, lengthier, and more memorable than Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back. Bubsy 3D 2 anyone?

It's easy to crack jokes about the return of Bubsy not turning out great, but I don't feel that The Woolies Strike Back is a pure misfire. After all, the boss fights are filled with smart and satisfying design. If that type of level design was seen in the main game (and there was simply more to do in general), then we'd be looking at a very different game. There's potential for Bubsy to be a relevant 2D platformer in the future, and I'd like to see Accolade take another shot at bringing the furball back to prominence.

Bubsy: The Woolies Strikes Back is thankfully only about an hour long so we can go back to forgetting Bubsy exists.

Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back may not be perfect, but it's easily the best Bubsy game ever made.

When Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back is at its best, the words I would use to describe it include "soulless", "mediocre", and "annoying". Somehow the game is rarely at its best, leading to a total disaster.

With an awkward difficulty curve and some questionable sonic choices, this isn't a purrfect platformer, but it's certainly good enough for meow. I'm not kitten around when I say this is a competent platformer that deserves a look in if you can get it fur a decent price.

Through an extremely short, inconsistent, and annoying slog of mediocrity, Bubsy shows us why he probably should have stayed down for the count.
