Critic Reviews for Epic Dumpster Bear 2: He Who Bears Wins
There is some effort that has gone into making Epic Dumpster Bear 2. There are even some genuinely nice touches, like little facts about bears that pop up during loading screens, and some elements, powerups, and similar that make it clear that the game is Canadian. I like it when the developers don't shy away from identifying their work with their culture. Unlike many low-budget platformers, there is a soul and sense that the developers weren't just looking to make a cynical dollar. So much of Epic Dumpster Bear 2 is admirable, it's just a pity that there wasn't a stronger vision behind it.
While the end credits rolled, I felt hopeful, inspired, and downright delighted. I can't wait to play through it again. With that being said; there's no denying that what Epic Dumpster Bear 2 accomplishes with its visuals, mood, and gameplay is nothing short of meh.
I was expecting for Epic Dumpster Bear 2 to be a complete disaster, but it isn’t. It’s a mediocre platformer with some good ideas, and even some well-designed levels, that also features one of the absolutely worst visuals from this entire generation of consoles.
