Bonsai Barber Review

Cheat Code Central
18 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Bonsai Barber might sound like a totally senseless idea for a game, but it's just the kind of oddball creation WiiWare was designed for. You wouldn't think cutting shrubs would be a fun pastime, but everything from the use of the Wii Remote, to the perfectly rationed regimen, makes for a great, little daily ritual. The game is as inviting as Sesame Street, yet the mechanics and humor are rewarding no matter how old you are.

Bonsai Barber WiiWare Review

DarkZero
15 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Some games have pretty mundane premises. Sometimes there’s an intergalactic war with high-tech soldiers fighting an army of aliens. Alternatively, an emotional young man skilled with a sword wants to end the reign of a powerful tyrant who has a variety of individually skilled friends to accompany him. These are the norm. However occasionally, and probably not without the help of a large amount of acid, games like Bonsai Barber pop out.

Bonsai Barber [WiiWare] Review

WiiDS.co.uk
18 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Zoonami recently gave us an insight into what the game would be like, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Bonsai Barber , purely for the reason that I used to stick strips of paper to chairs and pretend to be cutting hair when I was younger. Now with the interactivity of the Wii Remote, this game could turn out to be a hair-raising success!
  • Pros: Great use of Wii remote, Freedom to create any cut, Fun characters
  • Cons: Five customers per day isn’t quite enough, Can be tricky to get five stars in a cut, Difficult to cut to precise lines

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Have you ever found a mouldy old potato in a dark corner of the kitchen? Often is the time we come across one, and with our cupboards usually as vacant as the Hubbard household's, it's often a choice between carefully cutting off the sprouts that have appeared, or heading out to shop. It's an easy choice - waste not, want not and all that.
