REVIEWS

DESTRUCTOID: 9.5

“With solid gameplay mechanics and the iconic character designs of Biggs and company, it’s a game that belongs in any puzzle fan’s digital library. Even if you could resist the adorable allure of Biggs, the price might stop you in your tracks. At only $6.99, Critter Crunch may very well be one of the best values in puzzle gaming you’ll find this year.”

IGN: 8.6

“You might not normally expect a lot of visual flair from a puzzle game, but Critter Crunch will ruin you on this. It sets a new standard for graphics in the genre and is simply one of the best looking games on PSN. Luckily, it also has the gameplay to back up the looks.”

1UP: A

“Critter Crunch is one of the more clever puzzle games I’ve played recently, and it has charm and personality to spare. The numerous modes grant it a longevity that makes the $6.99 asking price easy to justify even for the tightest wallets.”

GAMER LIMIT: 9.5

“For the low price of $6.99, given the large amount of content, it’s hard to pass this one up. It’s innovative, fun, and overall, a great gem to have in your collection.”

CHEAT CODE CENTRAL: 4.5/5

“This addictive puzzle game is lots of fun and comes loaded with dozens of adventure, puzzle, and challenge stages as well as local and online multiplayer gameplay. Best of all, it’s super cheap!”

THESIXTHAXIS: 9

“Critter Crunch is a charming, funny and extremely well-presented game with solid and engaging gameplay mechanics.”

GAMER 2.0: 9

“With a deep single-player mode, online multiplayer, and fun, challenging gameplay, Critter Crunch is one of the standouts in the puzzle genre this year that deserves your $6.99 to check it out for yourself.”

GAMES RADAR: 9

“Critter Crunch is deceptively cute and cushy, but underneath the hood it’s one of the most solid puzzle experiences you’ll find on the PS3.”

ARS TECHNICA: verdict – BUY

“Critter Crunch is one of the best looking downloadable games to hit the PlayStation 3, but with some solid puzzle-solving gameplay, it’s much more than just another pretty face.”

VGChartz: 8.5

“Critter Crunch is a fun little title that no puzzle fan should miss… Do yourself a favor and pick this game up.”

4 COLOR REBELLION:

“Critter Crunch is absolutely the type of game that is going to become synonymous with the highest quality titles PSN offers.”

GAMING AGE: B+

“Critter Crunch turns the traditional chain-crazy puzzle genre onto its organic head for a Tropicana of colors and need to feed, with enough substance to call it smart as well.”

GAMEPRO: 4/5

“In the end, while Critter Crunch might not be the most unique puzzler available on PSN, the game’s charming characters, stunning animation, and variety-packed gameplay makes it well worth the paltry asking price. Just don’t ask Biggs for food…you won’t like what he gives you.”

THUNDERBOLTS: 8

“It may be hard to swallow, but this former iPhone exclusive is easily the best puzzler found on the PlayStation 3.”

PREVIEWS

DESTRUCTOID:

“If Critter Crunch, an upcoming arcade puzzle game for the PlayStation Network, was on the Penny Arcade Expo show floor last weekend, I would have nominated it for Game of The Show.”

IGN BEST OF E3 WINNER: BEST PS3 PUZZLE GAME

IGN E3 HANDS ON:

“This may be the only puzzle game you’ll use to show off your PlayStation 3 and fancy pants HDTV. We’re happy to report that the game is also a lot of fun. It’s got substance to back up its style.”

“There is something unavoidably enticing about feeding cute little creatures to fatter cute creatures and then watching them explode to gain points.”
