This game is just amazing simply amazing You play the role of the 3 siblings opoona copoona and poleena and on their quest to save the parents and the dieing earth(i think its earth) The battle system is like Final fantasy 4,5,6 in the since that its real-time yet turn based except you need more timing since enemy's will move some times.However their is cons example the stats what i mean is their's somewhat pointless stats or its not clear what they do example the health stat i dont know what it does maybe it affect HP is some way and the strength stat doesnt seem to boost your attack power only impact seems to affect power and then art and fame these don't do much except they unlock a few side quest(around 3)and then smarts i thought smarts affected FP(Force points aka mp)but i think they have set damage.One of the coolest things is the art style its cell shaded and has a weird what the heck i mean the NPC's can look really weird in a cool way and the main characters are shape based...opoona the circle copoona the triangle and poleena the oval? i never really found what she's based off of.The music is quite good and relaxing the difficulty is so-so The story is good SPOILER ALERT! Its about opoona and his siblings at first to save their parents dadeena and momeena...yeah i hate the puns to nut anyway but eventually its about saving the world ran by religion and from the dark bon bons. some cons are the fact that opoona is a silent character which i hate so for the first 3 hours all the dialog is bye NPC's also poleena is not very good i mean she's a decent sage but copoona is much better and she's weaker than him she's mainly "support based"but the thing is copoona and opoona are both decent support sine they can heal a decent amount also there's no real exploration and the first dome(aka towns) is a pain to navigate and the map is useless also theres a fairly long selection where you have to play as poleena alone(well kinda) and like i said before shes useless....

Refreshing, and a real RPG for the Wii (finally!)

I have been very disappointed by so-called "RPG's" for the Wii console. None of them are really RPG, with a separate battle screen. Opoona comes as close as you can get.

What to love:

-Absolutely charming graphics and music (definitely best with a surround sounds stereo)

-Fairly non-linear gameplay - you can wonder around earning your "job" licenses, which alone is a lot of fun and worth the game. There doesn't seem to be much of a plot at all.

-Fun dialouge and lots of secrets to uncover and collections to complete

What to hate:

-Scenes like traveling between domes and taking elevators are unnecessary and time-consuming.

-There are essentially no bosses, and battles are not very challenging except in a few optional areas.

-Upgrade items are scarce so it feels like enemies get stronger while your equipment becomes more irrelevant.

-Maps and camera angles are frustrating at time. It can take 10 minutes to get somewhere just to be told to go back to where you were to complete the task.

Overall: A good rental if you are willing to keep a game for a while, but I don't see much replay value. If you are put off by cute things or sci-fi, maybe not for you.

I enjoyed renting this game very much. I liked how simple this game is. It was a joy to play such a very colorful, easy-to-handle RPG. I feel I will be purchasing this game in the future.
