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.
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.
