GameZone: "BUD does have a clear goal in mind—the star seeds atop the plant—but the process of getting there is fittingly organic. He can manipulate the Star Plant in fantastic ways, such as growing and riding its tendrils to reach new heights—or to simply get to that platform over there. This is backed by a standard suite of abilities like climbing and gliding. All the tools are there to find your own path through the Star Plant and see however much of it you want. And that is exactly what I want out of September’s PS Plus lineup."
