Weak

It makes – then breaks – its own rules

All I can say is that this is one game that goes way outside the boundaries of gaming. I know what I’m getting from a Call of Duty game or a Need for Speed game or a LEGO game.
But Deep Chopra’s Leela is one game I had no clue as to what is was about.
This game is supposed to deal with awakening the spirit within the player – by challenging said player to seven different minigames.
The games are varied, but they’re easy to understand. They range from growing and nurturing plants to blasting rocks to travelling down the inside of a tube to connecting circles of the same color. Each mini game has seven levels (except the last one which only has one level).
Starting off, the games are not tough – which I was hoping for because this game is supposed to be relaxing and soothing.
However, on the later levels of most mini games, there are elements that make said mini game tough – and makes me frustrated instead of calm.
There’s also a Reflect segment where all you have to do is sit comfortably in a chair and let the game take the stress out. But there is no difference between any of the seven stages in the Reflect part of the game, and some players might get bored with it.
Deep Chopra: Leela tries to be inventive and relaxing, but the mini games need to be reworked so that players can feel at peace while they enjoy the journey. SKIP IT.

Don't be Fooled

The trailer looks cool. The idea is cool. This ISN'T cool. "Leela is easier to play when calm." Yeah, I'm calmed by wanting to chunk my WiiMote at the screen and sue all the makers of this game for what they're worth. This game is like a bad version of Child of Eden- and Child of Eden wasn't good to begin with. Why am I contorting my remote to save some planet I couldn't care less about? Why am I navigating a worm-thing to bring eggs to a nest? Why am I shooting fireballs at rocks and gems? (That's where I stopped playing this.) In short, why am I even playing Leela? Don't waste your time or money with this horribly incorrectly marketed game.
