i personally like this game, its fun to murder fluffy bears that we all grew up with. The multiplayer servers and the multiplayer it self needed a little more work but the single player is fun. I dont recommend this game for people under the age of 12 or people who cherished their childhood. this game is worth a rent

Do you love repitition? Endless frustration? Clipping Issues? Well then you'll come to love this unholy abomination that we've come to know as "Naughty Bear".
Yes. You CAN scare other bears into suicide. Yes, you CAN kill other bears using bones, axes, Uzis, sticks, and other weapons. But there is no thrill. No fun. The AI is so stupid, so unknowing of your presence, they will walk right past you, even though you are right next to them attempting to murder you.
The "Insanity" feature, what happens when you scare a bear enough to make him go over the edge, does nothing. He does the exact same things he would regulary do. The only differences are that you can do one final push and make him kill himself, and if other bears see him, they will become more afraid.
The "combat" consists of pressing the Attack Button until your enemy is weak enough to Kill. If your enemy decides he's in trouble, he may swing. But don't worry, you can just press the Dodge Button. This works, no matter what. You can get hit on screen, the weapon, bullet, whatever can go right through Naughty Bear, but it will still say you have successfully dodged.
The challenge levels consist of such annoying challenges that you want to throw your controller at the wall in frustration. The definition of "challenging" in this game, is to send loads of enemies at you and corner you so you can't escape in a mission that requires you to not get hurt for the entire level. And believe me, when the enemy bears can hit your through windows, walls, and doors, that is a problem.
Overall, it is rather charming, but avoid this mess like the plague. Naughty indeed.

I was really looking forward to this but after about 2 hours I was left pretty disappointed.
First off is the freezing; without savepoints this can be very frustrating when in my case it happened at the end of the first level. I even ran the game off my HD but it still froze 3 more times on me.
Second is the dizzy cam; it's very loose with a mind of it's own at times. It makes it difficult to navigate corners and chase down fleeing bears.
Third is the progression; I got to a point 2 chapters into the story where I cannot get to the 3rd until I do some challenges. Failing and freezing means that I'm stuck on the same tiny map until the bugs cooperate and let me move on.
Lastly is it just feels rough; The graphics seem rushed and the animations don't feel synched. It can be tough to tell what specific items are at times with the weird green fog around everything you can pick up.
Overall it's a fresh idea but the rushed feel and bugs really knock this down. I'm giving it a boosted 5 because that's the rating I think it deserves once the freezing is patched (which I'm sure they'll correct at some point). It's a short entertaining rent when the freezing is fixed but not much more.
