Ett superbra spel som kommer att bli en rak hit.

Ook op de Megadrive is Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind (dat eerder op de Super Nintendo verscheen) Een van de leukere platformspellen. Het is razendsnel, en nog ontzettend afwisselend ook.

Mies in allem dürfte Bubsy das Arcadespiel schlechthin werden. Wie gesagt, tolle Grafik, toller Sound, tolle Story und ein urkomischer Kater - genug Zutaten für ein langes Spiel.
Mega Fun
Bei der Mega Drive-Version hat Accolade ganze Arbeit geleistet und das Spiel kompetent vom Super Nintendo rübergezogen. Die Grafik ist gleich und somit eine wahre Augenweide auf dem Mega Drive. Auch der Ohrwurmverdächtige Sound ist hervorragend umgesetzt worden und unterhält Euch beim Spielen blendend. Allerdings hätten die Programmierer am Leveldesign einige Liftings vornehmen müssen, da Bubsy nicht gerade zu den einfachsten Spielen gehört und immer noch mit den Blindsprüngen zu kämpfen hat. Trotzdem sollte jeder halbwegs ambitionierte Jump‘n Run-Fan einen Blick auf Bubsy werfen, denn durch das Passwort-System haben, trotz des hohen Schwierigkeitsgrades, auch ungeübtere Spieler eine Chance.
High Score
I jämförelse med spel som exempelvis Sonic ter Bubsy sig lite segt. Det är dock ett välgjort spel utan några direkta svagheter, och de riktiga entusiasterna kommer säkert att ta den lilla lokatten till sitt hjärta.
Bubsy's catch phrase for the first level is "what could possible go wrong?" Well, the graphics and sound are nice enough, the levels are big and have many secrets (there are even secret bonus areas where Bubsy can collect more yarn), but the game is just too hard and cheap. Gamers looking for a challenge would do well to play Bubsy, but be prepared to curse in frustration as Bubsy loses life after life. By the end of it, Bubsy's last catch phrase is "you're still playing this thing?" Sure enough, I was asking myself the same thing.
All Game Guide
The control, while loose, is acceptable. The levels are huge and filled with impressive effects and colors, and the overall feel is fun and bouncy with a moderate challenge. If that sounds like fun to you, then, by all means, check Bubsy out. It's definitely better than most other third party mascot games.
The Video Game Critic
The inexact controls and poorly designed stages won't do you any favors either. It's hard to tell where you can or can't jump, and the game expects you to make a too many "leaps of faith". Bubsy does have the ability to glide through the air, although that makes little sense considering he's a cat for Pete's sake! He also rides down "water flumes", but in general the gameplay is slow and tedious. I'm still trying to determine how Bubsy managed to grace the cover of Electronics Gaming Monthly in February 1993, or spawn a few sequels. If you're tired of fun games with imaginative graphics and catchy music, give Bubsy a try. He's the anti-Sonic!
