    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.

    IT"S BAD! IT"S BAD! IT"S SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BAD! HOLY BA JEEZ! IT"S BAD! This is not a game, it is diarrhea on a card. It is playable, but it is going to get **** hard where you scream in frustration. It has no save feature,it has the most cliche story,and makes uses of the A or the X button.Pass this one up, if you have it, sell it at a Gamestop for 2 dollars.

  1. Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    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]
  2. Nintendo Gamer
    A mediocre entry in the Bub and Bob saga, too irritating to ever be absorbing, and missing the sparkle of the mighty original. Some nice ideas meet the frustration of poor level design. [Apr 2007, p.56]
  3. Maxi Consolas (Portugal)
    All the key elements of the game are present on this remake. The graphics look quite detailed and colored new backgrounds have been introduced to make it look alive. A new Continue option, unlocked by mini games completion, will welcome the new players. The game itself remains as addictive as it’s always been and it’s an excellent choice if you like this genre.
