This Bear and Bird are worth your Money
19 February 2001 | by Komplex IntelligenceSee all my reviews

This is one of the funniest games I have ever played. Great Gameplay with excellent moves to learn. Zany story that might catch your interest. Recommended for any Video Game Fan who will try anything once. Don't take my word for it, Rent it or buy it yourself.
