Naughty Bear is certainly an interesting game, just the idea of killing teddy bears in various ways certainly catches the attention of gamers such as myself but unfortunately Naughty Bear delivers a flawed, glitchy and sometimes annoying experience. First off the camera is horrible, it literally follows whatever direction Naughty Bear is facing, causing some aggravation when you're trying to plan your next move. Second, the storyline is linear and weak, compared to other games, Naughty Bear follows one rule, you kill bears, often by beating them to death with various objects, with some missions offering minor variations on this always main goal (such as driving bears to insanity, or not directly killing them). Even the methods of killing get old quick since each type of weapon has pre-set death sequences that play when you choose the Kill option and they don't change. Third, the glitches/random issues, one example is if you're hiding in the bushes and yell out, you scare the bears but they never see you, common sense dictates the bears would look in the bushes for you, but this game offers no challenge or even real rewards for being stealthy, you can finish most levels just by brute force and even levels requiring stealth still offer little challenge.
In short, while Naughty Bear is a interesting idea, unless you can find it in the bargain bin for less than $20, it's not worth picking up as you have little incentive to finish the game and most likely find it's only enjoyable in small spurts.
