    A quacktacular giggle from start to finish combined with surprisingly valid puzzles make for what is being touted as the best game ever made by many in the office. [Issue #151, p.67]
  2. It’s not going to break any records or receive any awards, but in this early content dry PS3 time, I’m more than happy to play a game that seems to embrace the nostalgic simple level gameplay of old for less than the price of a "Guitar Hero 2" song pack on the 360.
  3. A brilliant nugget of arcade puzzle gaming that is hard to put down and well worth its budget price. However, it is a little lacking in substance and, despite its next-gen gloss, feels a lot like a homebrewed internet shareware title.

    As a demo of what can be done with the Sixaxis it shines, but as a game you'll come back to time and time again? You must be quackers. [May 2007, p.66]

    The duck-related puns ("Quacked it" and "Billiant", anyone?) soon start to lose their appeal, much like the rest of the game. [May 2007, p.76]
  6. Playstation Official Magazine UK
    40
    The 40 levels are deliberately built to be played in fast bursts against the clock for the kudos of scoring high on the online scoreboard, but none are challenging or interesting enough to keep you going back. [May 2007, p.103]

    Dull and monotonous with little interactivity, the game is almost completely devoid of fun because of poor design choices and the worst example of Sixaxis support we've seen yet.

This game aims for the adult casual gamer and the under 10 year old groups. For the casual crowd this game is a quick play with very little load time to start or between levels. Although the task of collecting the duckies seems straight forward there is an element of stategy involved too if you want to compete for online rankings. The inclusion of online replays for the top scores for each level is also nice so new strategies can be tried and so you can marvel at the dexterity of other players and the sensitivity of the controller. For the kids its a cute game to pass back and forth and the first 20 or so levels have a gradual enough learning curve that kids can master the game. I see alot of the pro critics site a lack of control my thought is that these folks have never really investigated the physics of an object floating in water. Anyway the game accomplishes its goals with flying colors it's critics who quacked in the head Expand

    What's with all the hate? While I'm no die hard Rub-A-Dub player, my sister bought this game and it can be wildly entertaining. IGN What's with all the hate? While I'm no die hard Rub-A-Dub player, my sister bought this game and it can be wildly entertaining. IGN criticized on the SIXAXIS controls as being frustrating and nearly impossible. I disagree, tilting the tub with the controller feels natural and responsive. I don't like the way jumps are handled, however, as they can be unpredictable. With 60 puzzles and a solid amount of enjoyment, this game is well worth it's budget price. Expand

The SIXAXIS-system on the controllerIf you are getting tired of playing with your rubber duck in the bathtub, then pick up this little game! The SIXAXIS-system on the controller is being used very well and makes for a welcome change from all those button bashing games. They should have used this feature more often! Fun for young and old, at least for a short time. Expand

    Don't trust any review that uses words such as "quacktacular". The games a bore.
