Critics Consensus

Bugsnax is one of the more memorable games of the year, and it’ll take years to get its theme song out of your head, but it suffers from overly repetitive and unremarkable gameplay.

Ultimately, it’s that modern-day Mr. Rogers moralism that saves Bugsnax in the end. I’d happily recommend it to any family, and to any parent looking for a few hours to themselves — either in front of the screen for a bit of casual gameplay, or in the next room while the kids enjoy it all on their own.

Bugsnax’ unique concept is so compelling you’ll want to see and catch every one of its cute, crawling culinary creatures.

Bugsnax will be remembered for its brilliant crafted world, characters and titular Bugsnax for many years to come, despite some repetition and frustrating load times.
