Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise (Video Game Review)
Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise introduces plenty of new ways to kill the other bears in the game, and not only will you have plenty of new weapons and environmental objects at your disposal, but you can beef up Naughty Bear with plenty of armor, accessories and skill upgrades by finding and unlocking these throughout the game. Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise rewards you for pulling off the best kills possible, and of course, you'll want to pull off great kills just for your own pleasure as well. Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise has plenty of RPG elements added to the game, and gamers will reap the rewards of this great new approach to the series.
Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise is a massive game when compared to the original title. The game features a staggering amount of ground to cover across the game's 11 unique locations spread around the island paradise, and with over 30 bears who need to be punished, you'll spend plenty of time in the new title before completing the game. While the game's graphics haven't been improved much and the game lacks the multiplayer aspects from the previous entry, Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise is a better game overall and the game's massive closet full of costumes will have you customizing your character at your whim, and the feature couldn't have come at a better time with Halloween right around the corner.
If you are a fan of the original Naughty Bear, don't hesitate to pick up Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise. The new release is superior to the classic in numerous ways, so much so that even those who didn't enjoy the original can try out the new game and possibly have a change of heart. With plenty of great new features, a larger world that feels more alive than ever before, Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise is a great new game that gamers everywhere should pick up. Stabbing teddy bears has never been so much fun, and if you disagree with that statement, you're probably in prison, so you wouldn't have access to the game anyhow.
