Dont look for some overwhelming plot that sucks you in, you wont find it. But if your looking for a sweet little game you can play for a few days and not regret sending it back, this is your game!

The bosses are very cool and cartoony but also somewhat easy to take down. However, there are some neat challenges and mini games to be had. In addition there are tons of collectibles and unlockables for the player who wants to try and find everything in this game.
If you want a game that's simple, oozes charm, and is just fun. This is your game. If you want something hardcore, this is not your game.
On a side note, turn the game on when it's your birthday for a neat little suprise. Or just set the DS clock to your birthday that is programmed into your DS.

The GOOD: Very colorful and time-consuming
THE BAD: Very repetitive, i'm not even sure if there IS a story because i didnt have time to sit through the cutscenes, pointless powers with pointless abilities, annoying characters (cough cough Starfy), and the worst thing about this game is..........ITS WAY TOO EASY!!!!! I COULD PLAY THIS GAME WITH MY EYES SHUT!!! THERE IS NO CHALLENGE AT ALL AND THERE IS NO DIFFICULTY SETTING. I WOULDN'T ENJOY THIS GAME EVEN IF I WAS 8 YEARS OLD.
Dont get this game........dont even rent it, its just a waste of a good game rental

Story: 7/10 The story wasn't great, but cute nonetheless. You are this starfish prince (what?) who longs for adventure, if a bit of an airhead sometimes. A amnesiac bunny in a space suit falls out of the sky, requesting help from Starfy to recreate his memory. A ragtag group of pirates also pursues him, so Starfy, the bunny (named Bunston), and Starfy's friend Moe the clam set out to fix all this. Not the deepest story, but the characters are cute and have many hilarious (or sometimes just plain stupid) expressions.
Gameplay: 9/10 The gameplay was fun and cute, the environment colorful and bright. You swim and walk around and try to find pearls. The only way you can defeat enemies (other than joining up with Bunston) is by wildly spinning into them. I really liked the gameplay, but I personally thought it was super-easy. The only section I have problems with is the bone-fish you have to make land on stuff. For a hint, if you join with someone to be Starly, the game is way easier. I beat about eight worlds with my friend on a train to California.
Music: 8/10 The music was pleasant enough, but not very memorable and not super catchy. I honestly don't remember any of it right now.
Graphics: 9/10 The graphics were good, but a little pixelated for the DS era. The cutscenes were quite clear, though, with the adorable cutscenes of overexaggerated emotion.
This game was quite fun and cute, graphics colorful and characters adorable. The game was easy, though, so perhaps not the best for hardcore gamers. If you just want to relax without intense frustration and button mashing, then this game is for you.
Not very engaging
