Charming graphics and enjoyable puzzles make it easy to forgive Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time its faults. Once you start up the game, you see a brief cut scene with Elmer Fudd, and the game begins. Only at that point, when you press F1 for help, do you even discover what the keyboard controls are. You also discover that you can't change them. The Settings button on the opening main menu only lets you choose your graphics card, pick a resolution, select the full-screen or windowed mode, and set the language. Pausing the game also pauses the music, which often leads to an annoying extended buzz. Since you cannot die, as far as we could tell, the only way to quit is to hit F4. On the other hand, the graphics look great, if a bit too dark. The Zelda-esque puzzles are nicely balanced, easy enough to solve but challenging enough to feel good when you do. Despite the awkward controls, Chuck Jones fans and Zelda junkies looking for a fix may really enjoy Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time.
