Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back
Top Critic Average
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.
I'm not sure why anyone spent the time to bring back Bubsy, especially considering how awful this attempt is.
Sadly, Busby: The Woolies Strike Back barely meets the quality standards and expectations of the genre in its infancy, let alone all these years later.
Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back has a degree of retro appeal and may even stir up fond memories if you were around for Bubsy's first outing. But it's so unremarkable that it never really manages to get its claws into you.
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.

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