Top Critic Average
A short, boring, and painfully repetitious glimpse into the life of bees that will make you wish you had a virtual can of Raid handy.
I can’t really recommend it beyond its being a pleasant enough child-friendly diversion, but it feels cruel even to judge it that harshly. There’s certainly a good afternoon or two of harmless fun in it. There’s a split screen mode too, with its own maps full of co-operative and competitive challenges, which I can absolutely imagine annoying my sister on.
While I definitely appreciate the hard work that went into making this game, and the cute, fun graphics, this just isn't something I can see myself picking up again and playing, though I do believe this could be a fun game for young children to play together.
Bee Simulator is fun for a short time, but won't keep people's attention for long. Its charm can't save it from boredom. When you throw in the price tag, it's tough to recommend.
Bee Simulator does a very good job of conveying the life of a bee while adding in enough gameplay elements to make it qualify as a game
Bee Simulator completely nails the fluidity and speed of bee flight. This is a great tool to have when exploring the world within the game. It isn't a true simulation title. Rather, it throws in a story and collectibles for a wider audience. And if you're into learning new factoids about insects and animals, Bee Simulator wraps all these things into one. Be wary, though, as the NPCs can come off as empty and robotic, sometimes taking away from the immersion.
As a game, Bee Simulator isn't all that enjoyable, but its heart is in the right place.
Though simplistic and lacking in some variety, Bee Simulator is a great introduction to open-world games that everybody can enjoy and is also a towering celebration of Mother Nature's most vital workforce.
Bee Simulator bears the markings of a fun action game, as well as of an educational experience. With its myriad of information about bees and an enjoyable, relaxing gameplay that will be welcomed by both children and adults, Bee Simulator would benefit from more precise controls, as well as from a more polished visual environment but nothing that precludes it from being a fun experience.

Bee Simulator on the Nintendo Switch is a unique game experience that combines educational messages, fun mechanics, and a ton of bee puns.
