Very Good

Fun and charming.

A fun game with lots of wacky characters and entertaining dialog- visually impressive with an amazing soundtrack to boot.

The only reason its not a 10 in my book is the bizarre control scheme- you die a lot of times due to just not being able to adjust the camera and aim quick enough, as they are both the same stylus control, and your left hand will cramp up a decent amount since holding the 3ds and both move and shoot are the same hand. Once you get used to it, though, the game is a blast.

It is a really good game even though i did not get to finish it because i felt it was a bit to long and plus i did not have enough time to play it is also very funny so really recommend it but if you are left handed you might find the controls a little bit tricky but you will eventually find a way to play it ....

A great game set back by a painful control scheme

-Pros: Tons of content, great voice acting, some of the best graphics yet for the 3DS, solid multiplayer

-Cons: The controls are literally painful to use

I had a good time with this game, but I sent it back to Gamefly relatively soon because the game forces you to use the touchpad to aim and move around the stick, which I found to be really painful after a while. Which is a shame, because there is a lot of really awesome stuff in this game.
