An entertaining platforming game
21 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

During the 90's platforming games were becoming popular and gaming mascots were also becoming more noticed like Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog, two characters who had two of the best platform games out on the consoles. So in the 90's other companies decided to make there own platform game and create there own gaming mascot for there company. Some of these platforming games were great like Earthworm Jim and some were not so great, one platform character that was created during the platform game era was Bubsy the Bobcat. A game character that tried to be like Sonic the Hedgehog but failed in comparison, he was even hyped to be the next Sonic the Hedgehog. One thing many people disliked was the fact that the game had a lot of cheap kills. You would be running through the level when all of a sudden you'd get killed because of a unexpected enemy or trap, another problem is that you run that fast it's hard to see what opponents, traps or pitfalls are lying ahead. Another thing that kills Bubsy is falling from heights, this is realistic since no one could survive a real high fall but it can get annoying when you accidentally slip since the controls for Bubsy handle a bit like a Rollerblade at times.

Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind does have it's good points like it's graphics which look like they're from a cartoon, it's tough game-play and it's cartoon like levels.

Even with it's flaws Bubsy did become a hit and did receive positive reviews by critics. Bubsy was later followed by a sequel Bubsy II in 1994 and a short lived animated cartoon series that only had about one episode. Then in 1996 when next gen consoles was made like the Playstation, N64 and Sega Saturn Bubsy 3D was released. A game that is disliked by most Bubsy fans and by gamers, Super Mario 64 is known to do a better job at changing a game character from a 2D game to a 3D game.

Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind may not be has good as Super Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog and Earthworm Jim but it is a entertaining platforming game that is challenging and a bit underrated. Retro fans or platform game fans may want to check Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind out.
