The co-op mode is pretty interesting and has you and a friend take control of different sides of the bunny blockade and work together to achieve boogie bunny bliss. The online modes are a little more competitive and involve you and an opponent taking turns shooting bunnies and making combos. Each player tries to get a bigger score than the other, and the game ends when either too many bunnies fall in the water or when all the bunnies are gone.

Both the audio and visual departments can be described with one word: cute. I know I've said it too many times already in this review, but I honestly think that the cuteness factor is really this game's selling point. The visuals are pretty good and feature a host of bright colored bunnies with some vibrant backgrounds. The sound scheme features some pretty happy-sounding-but-generic tunes. Surprisingly, however, these tunes are mostly inoffensive. The sound effects consist of ultra-cute bunny noises. They even sound like they say "oh no!" when they get close to the freezing water. It's so cute that it will either make you smile or hurl depending on you constitution.

Boogie Bunnies is a pretty good Live Arcade title for fans of games like Bejeweled and Hexic who aren't necessarily looking for anything new. The problem with this game really comes in when veterans of these puzzlers realize that this game is almost a clone of these previous titles. It does, however get points for being visually appealing by looking really cute. I am admittedly one who is easily impressed by huge displays of utter cuteness, however, so if you're not like me, then you probably won't want to invest any time in Boogie Bunnies. But if you have 800 points to burn, really enjoy the occasional puzzler, and really adore all things cute, then you may enjoy this title for a short time. So you have been warned. Boogie at your own risk!

RATING OUT OF 5
RATING DESCRIPTION
4.0
Graphics
Pretty good, everything looks sharp and crisp, and bunnies come through as earth-shatteringly cute.
4.0
Control
Very simplistic controls have you aim with the joystick and shoot with the A button. So simple a caveman bunny could do it.
3.5
Music / Sound FX / Voice Acting
Music is generic, but unoffensive. Bunny sound effects are mind-numbingly cute.
2.0
Play Value
Here's where the trouble is. 20 minutes to play by yourself and about 30 to play online and then you're bored. Shows that cuteness can only take you so far.
3.0
