Was the uproar surrounding BMX XXX a little much? Perhaps, but that doesn't make the game part of this action sports title any better. The crass humor wasn't all that funny, and the nudity was more or less pointless, but that's just the stale icing on the cake that was this uninspired bike stunt game. Players worldwide tended to agree with this assessment, as XXX only sold around 100,000 units upon launch.
Catfight's offensiveness is almost too much to fully summarize in one small blurb. For one, it's just a terrible fighting game, with sluggish controls, a throwaway plot, lazy digitalized graphics, and a soundtrack of annoying 80s hair metal cheese.
But all that could potentially be excusable if it weren't for the game's main gimmick: The eleven fighters on the game's roster are scantily clad women, with plenty of breast and butt shots displayed no matter who you choose. Catfight is so wrapped up in its 12-year-old hornball fantasies that it makes the horrid gameplay look appealing by comparison. Here's hoping that people only chose to play this ironically.
Bubsy's transition from 2D to 3D effectively murdered what was once a solid platforming series. Often cited as a clone of Super Mario 64—which I hear was pretty good—Bubsy 3D also suffered from stiff controls, ugly visuals, and some pretty lame one-liners from its protagonist. The only good thing it had going for it was that adorable pun in its subtitle.
