The third game in the Buster Bros. series, Buster Buddies keeps the original gameplay fully intact while adding a number of modernized upgrades, including voice effects, superior animation, and four playable characters (including a female who shoots diagonally). Also included are a boost in firepower (thanks to the addition of a laser cannon), new enemies and platforms (including conveyor belts), and a clever art heist theme that lends itself to gorgeous backgrounds (featuring such works as Van Gogh's Sunflowers and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa). The basic running, climbing, bubble-shooting action remains a simple (if challenging) pleasure (especially in two-player mode), but fans lukewarm to the series will wish for scrolling levels, the ability to jump, and other, more substantive enhancements. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
