Excerpt: Bubble Bobble Revolution is two games in one. On the one hand you have a straight port of a two decades old arcade game that some remember fondly. On the other you have a “re-imagining” of the game that results in the same kind of mess you get when Hollywood decides it would be a good idea to re-imagine a classic movie. The overall result is half a game that will appeal to Bubble Bobble fans and a whole game that won’t appeal to anyone else.
Pros: Includes classic Bubble Bobble arcade game, multiplayer modes are nice if you can take advantage of them
Cons: Remake isn't as fun or cute as the original, graphics and audio in the remake are still weak by DS standards, glitches make remake seem sloppy, recurring bug in the remake makes it impossible to go beyond level 30
Excerpt: Bubble Bobble...isn't that that colored-bubble puzzle game that was popular in the arcades? Wasn't it also called Bust-A-Move or something like that? Everything was even more confusing when Bust-A-Groove came out for the PlayStation. Bubble Bobble, unbeknownst to me, was a Taito arcade classic from the late 1980's.
