  1. My final thought on Bubble Bobble Double Shot is that it is not worth the investment. It's not really that fun.
  2. The unfortunate fact is that Bubble Bobble has been done too many times before. Yes, it's playable and challenging, but it's also old and far too simplistic for hte modern gaming era. [Mar 2007, p.77]
  3. Of the game’s 100 levels, the majority are either totally uninspired or ridiculously difficult.
  4. Although Double Shot won't necessarily disappoint fans of the series, and vintage games generally, it's an extraordinarily lazy sequel that trades on the moderate success of a 20-year-old arcade game.
  5. A sloppily-handled misfire that ruins the original's reputation.

    This game brings back old memories. Very similar to the old game, we all loved but with some new twists. Wish it was available on another This game brings back old memories. Very similar to the old game, we all loved but with some new twists. Wish it was available on another gaming platforms like Wii. It is challenging at different points during each level. Very easy to spend hours on. Full Review »
