VGChartz's Lee Mehr: "Can an expansion beat out its own base game? While not exactly a high bar here, the aptly-named Bend the Roo'les breaks from the norm to do exactly that. It's like seeing Kao as a 0-5 fighter hopping back into the ring and clawing out his first win by majority decision. Despite being tied down by the original's perfunctory template and mired with a straitened budget, freshman developer Mataboo handled these challenges with some creative solutions. While that doesn't dispel most faults endemic in the main game, it's the first time I've had a revitalized sliver of interest to see where this marsupial goes next. That ought to count for something."
