Sometimes it’s hard to tell how much weight a game will carry once your done reviewing it and have moved on to new titles. In Astro Bears’ case, the passage of time has proven my initial assessment wrong to some extent. The game has endured with me and my friends as a multiplayer attraction, and this new iteration is even better. It’s dropped part of its original handle, but Astro Bears is more a party now than it’s ever been.
While most of its elements feel repetitive and lacks adventure, Astro Bears is really just a no-frills, fun family game. It is nothing spectacular nor extraordinary, but its playful colors and the atmosphere it creates in the room shows it is capable of bringing joy to those who play it.
The original Astro Bears Party had a single-player mode that was a distraction at best. In this mode, your bear runs around a planetoid collecting as many fish as possible for a high score. The snaking trail behind your bear is not permanent in single-player, but it is still long enough to trip you up. That mode returns in this release and, unfortunately, is largely the same.Â Astro Bears is simply a multiplayer game through and through.
