    Mobile game sequels are hit or miss, as some developers just slap a new skin on an older game. Halfbrick did that with one of the game's modes, but the Bandito mode as well as the humor in the Puss in Boots character makes this version unique. If you played the original, the new mode is worth the purchase, and if you never experienced Fruit Ninja, Puss in Boots is the perfect way to get started.

    While remaining very similar to its predecessor, the Puss In Boots version brings with it an exciting new game mode that makes the sequel a worthwhile pick-up.

    If you could only have one Fruit Ninja game on your phone, I'd tell you to keep the original. It has a lot more to offer. But Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots is well worth playing, even if it's more expansion than stand-alone.

    If Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots is any indicator of where the Fruit Ninja series is heading in future installments, I for one am excited.

    Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots shows how to make movie tie-in's work without being overbearing; Bandito mode brings a real Arcade flair to the original Fruit Ninja formula, while thematic touches give the game charm.

    A fun evolution of the classic formula that anyone who enjoyed the original will certainly enjoy. We wish they would've included some more unlockable goodies, but besides that, there's really not much to complain about. Pick this one up for a fun, casual, and occasionally explosive experience.

    Other than the ability to watch the trailer for the film, there isn't much different about Fruit Ninja: Puss In Boots. As far as fruit-ninjaing goes, stick with the original.

    Well, the original version was better, but "Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots" is still provides an entertaining and enjoyable fruit-slicing experience. This one does have some different levels and modes, so that's cool. Expand
