A fun, quirky little game, that as said, has a wonderful retro feel to it. Bright, colorful and in some ways, it harks back to a more innocent age where games were not all about gun toting heroes, or car jacking anti heroes, or a group of combatants knocking seven shades of you-know-what out of each other.

After a twenty-year hiatus, Americans are finally given the chance to play the once-hyped Putty Squad. Likely, only the most devoted platforming fans should jump at the opportunity.

Knocking Putty Squad for being an SNES game on the PS4 is easy. Its “budget” price of $29.99 might still be a little steep for those who don’t get the nostalgia. Don’t be mistaken, Putty Squad is far from a perfect game. By today’s standards it is far from being a great game. In spite of all that, there is fun to be had for players who fondly remember the days when platformers were the go-to genre. Gameplay is interesting enough to ensure ease of access. And with enough levels and things to do, players who want to invest in the game shouldn’t be too let down.

Putty Squad inspires to recreate a classic game for a new generation. While some gamers won't be interested in the retro gameplay, there is some fun gameplay masked underneath the aged ideas present in the game.

You should only pick up Putty Squad if you're a fan of the original, and have an unhealthy affinity towards platformers. Everyone else need not apply unless the game drops to a rightful price of $10 or less.

Unfortunately, a fresh coat of paint doesn’t do enough to make Putty Squad a game I am really comfortable recommending to anyone. It offers a reasonably lengthy campaign with plenty of challenges and content along the way and it looks nice on even a large HD television. However, the core design feels dated and awkward. It’s outclassed not only by today’s efforts in the genre, but by numerous titles that came before it. Unless you have a particular attachment to the original SNES release, you’d do well to steer clear of its competent but uninspired remake.

I can’t imagine there was a huge demographic calling for the return of Putty Squad, but it’s here now and I suppose that’s something. The level design and character control feels dated (despite the game only coming out in the last fortnight) and things need an overall tightening, but for the right demographic Putty Squad is decent. Well, it’s mostly decent.

Was für ein Chaos! Putty Squad ist das mit großem Abstand seltsamste Jump 'n‘ Run, das ich seit langem gespielt habe. Das Spiel erweckt den Eindruck, als hätten die Entwickler in den Neunzigern Unmengen wirrer Ideen, Farben und Spezialfähigkeiten in einen großen Topf geworfen und kräftig umgerührt. Das Ergebnis wirkt ähnlich unausgegoren wie ein Eintopf, in den man alle erdenklichen Zutaten schmeißt. Manchmal hatte ich durchaus Spaß daran, mich mit dem dehnbaren Kaugummihelden über die Plattformen zu hangeln oder einfach über aggressive Feinde hinweg zu schweben. Oft überwiegt aber der Frust über den schlecht aufeinander abgestimmten Wust von Extras und die nicht immer griffige Steuerung. Das Spiel ist deutlich schlechter gealtert als das sinnvoller strukturierte Superfrog von Team 17, welches vor kurzem neu aufgelegt wurde.

Putty Squad isn’t a good game by modern standards. It’s repetitive, confusing, dull, and a reminder that the medium has evolved. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t a niche that may still enjoy this, and if you happen to squeeze into that cross-section then there’s plenty to sink your teeth into here. Everyone else looking to relive the past may be better off tackling one of the Blue Blur’s adventures, though – and letting this blue blob fester in the pipes beneath the sink.
MAN!AC (Feb 26, 2014)
Anstrengender Plattformer mit mäßigen Kontrollen und mieser Übersicht; trotz dieser Mängel hat der niedliche Putty ein bisschen Suchtpotenzial.
GamingUnion.net (Dec 16, 2013)
Putty Squad feels and plays ever bit like a retro platforming title from the nineties, but it falls someway short by today's standards. The controls have noticeable issues and the gameplay is pretty clunky and while there is quite a bit of replay value, it will only suit a small segment of the market. In short Putty Squad is a rather poor offering in the PS4's early gaming library.

It seems very unfair to suddenly thrust such a dated game back into the limelight, but it ready would’ve been better if Putty Squad had stayed in retirement.
RealGamerNewz (May 18, 2014)
Putty Squad starts out feeling like a platformer similar to the most popular ones in the genre, then introduces its puzzle mechanics with a sort of teleportation experience as players use Stretch and Morph, Punch and Bounce moves to navigate. Graphically the title looks good, and that’s a saving grace for any game these days – however, the fact that players are meant to be met with the gameplay presented as somehow fun or worthwhile is frankly offensive. Audio can be described as truthfully annoying with very little to be enjoyed and mainly generic music that seems aimed at getting children’s heart levels pumping while failing miserably at the intricate and frustrating gameplay and level designs in the game.

I could go on about Putty Squad, but I’ll end it like this. Some things are better left in the past.
