Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time
Score: 95%
ESRB: Everyone
Publisher: Infogrames
Developer: Behaviour Interactive
Media: CD/1
Players: 1
Genre: Action

Graphics & Sound:
Excellent. Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time is like watching a Bugs cartoon, only you get to control him. The characters are perfect translations of their cartoon counterparts, and the true WB spirit shines through in every aspect of the game. The voices are authentic and the sound effects wacky. Overall, an excellent use of Bugs and other WB characters.

Gameplay:
Lost in Time is a 3rd person 3D game where Bugs has taken a wrong turn at Albuquerque (where else?), and has to get back. He meets up with Merlin (what a weirdo) and his time machine, and thatís when the looniness begins. Along the way, Bugs will run into a lot of his old friends (pre-historic Elmer Fudd will make you roll around laughing), and heíll get into all sorts of adventures. The overall feel is true Bugs Bunny with anvils falling from the sky and such. Also, you may have to go all the way through a level a second or third time if you fail to get certain pick-ups the first time through. Doh! A vision of Merlin frequently pops up to advise you (cute way to handle tips), and the very first level is no more than a big training ground. Itís nicely handled. All in all, challenging, looney fun.

Difficulty:
I wonít kid with you. Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time is tough. Not all aspects of it, but you will encounter certain parts that really eat your lunch. But why bother playing a game you can beat in a day, right? Bugsí control is a bit awkward, which adds to the difficulty, but itís still quite playable.

Game Mechanics:
Bugsí control does take some getting used to and is a bit awkward. However, he has a host of moves to aid him in his journey. I found the most helpful to be the sneak move -- for those rickety bridges and sleeping enemies. He also can slow his descent after a jump with the ďHelicopter EarsĒ move. And the most fun is kicking some unsuspecting baddie in the rear. I, myself, mercilessly abused the apprentice in the training level. Hey! I was practicing... plus, he didnít fight back. I recommend Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time because it has a whimsical attitude, and gameplay good enough to challenge even a seasoned gamer.
