    Despite those nice touches, BBB could have been more fun had it adopted a few modern touches and included online multiplayer (co-op is limited to local play only). Instead, it feels like more effort was spent on ensuring that the Team Fortress 2 section looked exactly like the Dustbowl level than on making sure the game played as well as possible. At $15 BBB is just $5 too expensive to justify picking up.
  2. The game starts with a good Contra feeling, but after a while the flaws become apparent. The controls aren't intuitive, the gameplay is too repetitive and far too short, and I can't even find the humour that this game is supposed to be filled with.
  3. A genuinely good satire would be a joy to play and a sign that the medium is maturing further. At the moment, however, all we have is crude parody.
  4. Yes, there is some humour but the gameplay, graphics, and audio and almost everything else is dull, repetitive and uninspiring! It is not terrible but is terribly average. All in all, you’re best off avoiding this Hazard!
  5. If it wasn’t bad enough that the game pokes fun at its previous release, saying it can be picked at a bargain bin near you and continues the self-deprecating with a quip at the end dealing with the dreadfulness you just played through, one can’t help but agree and have a sort of resentment that the developers knew the game was not up to par with other XBLA - or even Xbox Live Indie games - but still went ahead and released it, which is probably the most humorous thing the game has going for it.
