Adventure Time on the 3DS! OH MY GLOB!

I was very excited when this game was first announced. I bought the game and started playing it right away. I was surprised when I beat the first dungeon, it said that I was 28% into the game already, which brings me to my next point. The game is very short. It will take you 3-5 hours to beat the game. When you beat the game, you unlock plus mode, which is where you replay the game, but at a higher difficulty level. Here are the pros and cons of the game: Pros- Fun, 3D is great, excellent story, great music. Cons- very short, sound is a little bad, way too easy. Overall, I would give this game a 9/10, with it being the best game I have beaten in 2012.

First of all, if you are a fan of Adventure Time, pick this game up - there are a ton of great shout outs to fans throughout the game. Great use of characters and the lore of Ooo, you'll definitely find yourself chuckling throughout.
The game really shines in it's fantastic animations and graphics that fit perfectly. The music is great (the rendition of the theme song after winning a random enemy encounter is awesome), and the controls are among the best I've encountered in a handheld game in some time. If you're old enough to remember Zelda 2 you will definitely feel some of that nostalgia coming back when you fire this game up... it feels like a polished, updated, fine-tuned version with AT characters. You'll also feel a little Banjo-Kazooie with Finn and Jake's gameplay interactions.
I loved this game, but there were a few gripes I had with it. First off, and probably the biggest reason that I score it an 8 was the length of the game. I really had just started getting into it and BAM, the Ice King dropped his last riddle - all in all I'm guessing it clocked in at about 5 hours, would have liked to see it go at least 10. I realize it's a handheld game built for short gaming sessions, but it definitely leaves you wanting more. There is a new game plus, but it doesn't add anything new as far as I know, just a higher difficulty level. Which brings me to my next small complaint - it's too easy - which is understandable for a cartoon based video game built for a younger crowd, but when you can breeze through without breaking a sweat...
However, none of those complaints prevent Adventure Time from being the most important thing for a video game to be - fun! It's a dang good weekend diversion and well worth your time...

I'm not a fan of Adventure Time. Just can't get into it. The game plays like Zelda II, which I hate almost as much as the DS & Wii Zelda games.

But somehow, combining the 2 makes for an insanely fun enjoyable game.

If you're a fan of the source material, you'll get the most out of it. There's a theme song on the title screen, a few voice samples and even a mathematical jingle whenever you collect a level-up item.

The controls work well, and you get new abilities pretty regularly. The inventory system is simple & intuitive. Overall, the difficulty is well balanced ( though I only died once due to me being too absent minded to realize the obvious thing to do ).

I only have 2 complaints: first, the game is really short. You'll easily get from start to finish in 10 hours or less. Second, every time you get or use a key item you inventory screen switches from your usable items to the key items. It's a minor thing, but it does get annoying after a while.
