Summary: 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.

Summary: The original Bubble Bobble is one of the all time great classic video games and for a game having passed the two decade mark it remains as enjoyable today as it did when it was first created in 1986. My girlfriend, who is totally not into video games, found Bubble Bobble to be perhaps the most enjoyable game she has ever played.
Summary: Bubble Bobble was one of the best games for the original Nintendo system. The game was simple--play as one of two cartoonish little dragons (or play 2 player mode with a friend) and guide them on their journey through the cave of mysteries (all 100 or so levels of it), using bubbles to entrap and then 'pop' enemies of various types and abilities. Like many NES games it was deceptively simple--easy to get the hang of but pretty tough to master--and insanely addictive.

Summary: I just purchased Bubble Bobble Revolution and only purchased it to play the classic version which was well remade but the new version of Bubble Bobble totally blows. The designing of the case is terrible. Bubble Bobble don't look like fat dinosaurs that look like they swallowed a balloon. They were cute characters and the rest of the game is kinda cheezy and cheaply made. This is what happens when they recreate a game they personally aren't exactly interested in.
Codemasters has confirmed that the entire shipment of Bubble Bobble Revolution is defective.

Summary: (The article below is one that I read on Advanced Media Network today, October 19th 2006.) If your old enough to remember the days of the NES you'll surely remember a little classic known as Bubble Bobble which featured two dragons along their journey through the Cave of Mystery as they attempt to rescue their beloved girlfriends.
Summary: The bug will be corrected in the reprint of the game coming out in a few weeks. Codemasters will provide info on how to get a free replacement of the cart. The entire NA print run has the glitch in it.
Summary: This gets 2 stars for the 'new' version of Bubble Bobble (not being able to see the whole screen doesn't work well in my opinion, and it just doesn't have the same feel as the original in any case). The original version is also included, and is pretty much arcade perfect and redeems the cartridge. However, this gets only 4 stars rather than 5, for the simple reason that two cartridges are required to play 2 player which is a bit of a rip-off.
Excerpt: If you liked the original bubble bobble from the 80's on the C64 you will either like this or hate it. I personally love it with a vengence! With the original game on and the new bubble bobble revoloution on you have the choice in which two to play. The bubble bobble advantages are once you die you can start from the level you died at (or any level prior to that), me I can't get any further then level 63.
