The same basic charm and premise of the game is still intact but the rest of the pieces (small graphics and no save option) create an unpleasant atmosphere for the game. If you must own a Bubble Bobble game then be prepared for what could be a letdown.
Bubble Bobble: Double Shot is a game looking for a shot in the arm to keep it going. Some of you out there will probably fall in love with the game even with the issues Gamezone have mentioned. While the rest of you will probably avoid it like a visit to the doctor's office.
