    The biggest problem with Naughty Bear is, while it's subversive, unique and wildly imaginative, it's flawed in a few crucial areas. The camera is the worse offender. It isn't beyond managing, but it could've been more cooperative. [August 2010 p74]

    It's just a rudimentary Grand Theft Auto in bear suits. [Issue#195, p.98]
  3. Had the core gameplay been better polished then Naughty Bear would have been able to get away with having only a few solitary environments to explore, but as it stands it's a hell of a lot of fun for a couple of hours, but that's your lot.
  4. Naughty Bear is an amazing character in an average game. Some technical flaw and some dull mechanic ruins the appeal of the game.
  5. The naughty bear entertains – but only for a short while. There isn't much in this game besides comic violence.
  6. This flaky action game falls short of the darkly funny teddy-bear rampage promised by the concept.
  7. In the end, Naughty Teddy had the character, premise and even the story, however the gameplay needed some more polishing.
  8. 55
    The developers deserve some praise for the originality of the game, but ultimately it doesn't work as it becomes boring too early.
  9. Naughty Bear wanted to be so much more, and possibly could have been with a little more variety and tightening up of the core mechanics.
  10. Naughty Bear should burn in the flames of videogame hell. The funny-but-trivial idea of a sociopath teddy bear is spoiled by a noxious gameplay and an evil look. Don't buy it.
  11. Lacking in depth and diversity but not completely devoid of charm, the game is a playable yet troubled effort that warrants little more than a one-night rent.

    Naughty Bear certainly isn't a sweatshop import with lead shot for eyes and asbestos filling, but it's no Steiff original either. [Aug 2010, p.116]
  13. I'm really disappointed. I had expected a cool and funny game, but all I got, was a game with lame gameplay, bad graphics and nearly no variety. Very average, but no better.

    Wow. don't do it. Really. The premise is awesome, as someone with a seriously messed up sense of humor I thought I would be all over thisWow. don't do it. Really. The premise is awesome, as someone with a seriously messed up sense of humor I thought I would be all over this game. But it just doesn't deliver as well as it's promise. I like the sick humor, but the game plays like trying to drive a truck through a 4 foot deep pool of molasses, and the bugs and glitches are out of control. They also didn't add nearly enough variety to this game. A pro review said that you end up doing everything in the first 1 or 2 hours of the game and the rest is repeat, repeat, repeat. They were not lying. This game had so much promise and it just tanked. Full Review »

    Intro:
    In my gaming years I have never come across a game where you play as a teddy bear who kills other teddy bears, this makes Naughty Bear
    Intro:
    In my gaming years I have never come across a game where you play as a teddy bear who kills other teddy bears, this makes Naughty Bear a very original idea.

    Story:
    In Naughty Bear the story starts off with Naughty not getting invited to Daddles' birthday party, so he goes and takes a present anyway, so he does that and gets laughed at. He has had enough of being bullied by the other bears, so he decides to go on a rampage. After this more things start to happen, like Army Bears attack you, Robots attack you, ninja's attack you and aliens attack you. You can tell it is an eventful game.

    Gameplay:
    Naughty bears gameplay is a dream come true, there is special moves like, sticking bears in fridges, brutally axing them and much more. There is a fairly big selection of weapons to use, from simple twigs to uzi's. You can also press L2/LT to roar, which will usually cause bears to run away in fear and if you scare them enough you can cause them to go insane and they will end up killing themselves. The only downsides I found with the gameplay is that you can't jump and it has afew lag problems, other than that its really impressive.

    Presentation:
    For 2010 Naughty Bear's graphic's are pretty basic. Although the graphics are nothing special, they don't look horrible, they actually go with the game. The cartoony style of this game fits in well. The bears and the environment are very colourful and nice to look at. The presentation of the menu was a big highlight for me because it looked way better than most other menu's, like the boring menu of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

    Sounds:
    Although the bears only make squeaky noises, there is a commentator that is sort of the voice in Naughty's head that sounds great. He has an English accent and in my opinion deserves an award for his awesome voice acting. The guns and weapons make good sound when they hit a bear. There is one noise you will get used to, ROAR! You will get used to this because you will have to scare bears quite a lot in this game. The music in the game is like the music in a young children's TV show, but the music changes to a more serious tune when you start to cause loads of chaos.

    Multiplayer:
    Finding a game on Naughty Bear online can be hard sometimes, but when you do you will have a lot of fun. There are four game types, which are,
    Assault: In this mode There is two teams, one being red bears, one being blue bears. In this game mode, you will be trying to either destroy the other teams statue or protect your own one with your other team member. If a statue gets destroyed, the round ends and you will switch from Attack to Defence or Defence to attack.
    Cake Walk: In this mode, one player will have a cake and will have to hold it for as long as possible, while other players will try to kill that player for it.
    Golden Uzi: In this mode there is a powerful uzi(which is golden), that has infinite ammo and is very powerful. Players will have to try and retrieve the golden uzi, by either simply picking it up or just killing the player that has it in there possession and then picking it up.
    Jelly Wars: In this mode, you will either play as a normal bear or Naughty Bear. Three players will be normal bears and one player will be Naughty Bear. In this mode the normal bears objective is to find jelly and put it in a giant mixer, to make one giant jelly. The player that is playing as Naughty Bear will have to try and stop and kill these innocent bears who are just making jelly.

    Life-Span: Naughty Bear will last you a long time if you go back to levels and try and beat your score. You can also play the very addictive multiplayer, which will last you a while if you enjoy it as much as I do.

    Overall: This is a great game with some minor flaws that don't ruin it at all.

Personally, I played this game for a long time. While it doesn't have much replayability, it's a commonly overhated game just because of a bad camera, which is unfortunately present at all times.
