Excerpt: Panic in Paradise comes with a much nicer price and some improvements over 2010’s Naughty Bear , but is it enough? Barely. Behaviour Interactive has smartly deepened certain elements of the game while streamlining others. Instead of Naughty Bear’s oft-boring stages, Panic presents your target upfront, while adding bonus sideobjectives.
Pros: + A much more streamlined experience; leveling system can keep you engaged, + Charming mix of cute noises, crazy attacks, and quip-filled narration.
Cons: ? Why don't Naughty's enemies just cut down all the bushes? That'd stop him...
Conclusion: It's dumb, it's crass, and it's not all that good, but it's shocking. If you fancy playing a real oddity of a videogame that will both revile and amuse you: look no further on your PS3 and Xbox 360.
Excerpt: Ladies and gentlemen, I'm about to say something that even I can't believe. Something that seems so astoundingly absurd that I'm struggling to even type it. Brace yourselves, the folks at Behaviour Interactive have found a way to not only make a Naughty Bear sequel, but they've also found a way to make it even worse than the first game.
Summary: If you weren't expecting the psychotic teddy bear Naughty to make a return after 2010's disappointing Naughty Bear , you're not alone. If anything, his comeback in Panic in Paradise comes as a greater surprise to his legion of fluffy companions, who made the woeful mistake of booking a trip to Paradise Island without inviting Naughty--for what may be obvious reasons.
Pros: The focus on stealing costumes adds a new level of complexity, Tons of gear with stats to choose from
Excerpt: When the other bears threw a party, Naughty Bear wasn’t invited. This is the premise for 505 Game’s Naughty Bear and of course, the party is crashed in brutal fashion. Naughty Bear faces a series of parties that he wasn’t invited to, so he must punish those responsible and be as naughty as possible. This includes scaring the others, setting up traps, sabotaging equipment, and yes, out and out murder.
Conclusion: The booby traps are a lot of fun to set and wait, and they're a great way to maximize points and get quick kills/insanities. If that sounds like fun to you... it is. Lots of fun. Forget the review scores and know that renting or picking up a cheap copy of Naughty Bear will give you hours of laughs and a unique game experience.

Conclusion: Hit; With heaps of collectible goodies this is a game you can play again and again. Miss; Although a lot of progress has been made since the original there are still some glitches in the game mechanics that really should have been ironed out. Need; To spice up the repetition with some different challenges, maybe via some DLC.
