Summary

Paw Patrol Mighty Pups Save Adventure Bay is a game that is built for the kids, built to teach them all about teamwork, caring for the environment, and getting positive feedback. I commend the game for those very facts as it really does hit many points you would want a game to be for your child. For us older gamers it’s an easy Platinum trophy and that’s more important! Seriously though older gamers will lose their mind over the way it spoons feeds you content, it always gives audio feedback and that straight-up bugs. The gameplay is ridiculously basic and repetitive with a slight reprieve every now and then with a simple mini-game. The thing is I just had to say all that as its fact but the real core of it all is it is a kids game and for that, it really is one of the best, I would have got my son to start on this because as I said it constantly reassures them and throws words of encouragement to them. So what I say is don’t judge the score by the fact it’s a kids game, judge the score because it’s a kids game and a really good one and that needs to be shown. If I give it a low score because the game is kinda bad for older gamers then it will disappear into the wither, but if I give it a better score because for kids it’s brilliant then it means it will get seen by the right people which ultimately leads to the correct gamers seeing and grabbing the game. Overall Paw Patrol was built for kids and is one of the best games for kids.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
