It seems like a cheerful rpg game on the surface, but there are some things about it that bug me..
Here you are, a kid who is going on vacation with his family, when you crash land on the planet you are vacationing to. You are told your parents are in comas and that you are not allowed to see your siblings until you've worked long enough to have citizenship of high enough rank.
Then you are told to stay there you have to work. Some vacation huh? Not only that but they send this kid out to fight monsters. Two things fundamentally wrong with that really, first in game, they state that Tizan are not allowed to fight til adulthood. so they are breaking your home planet's law to put you to work! Second, they are telling this kid to do it. Maybe I'm ignorant but thats the kind of thing you do to an established hero not some kid with talent.
The combat system is interesting, but overly simple. When they explained how you could use it to hit enemies from behind and stuff, i thought i could get some wacky tricks going, maybe ricochet off bad guys to do bonus damage... Not really.. You merely select the curve, if it curves enough it 'counts' as hitting them from behind, and if anything gets away before you get ahold of your power plus you lose your attack. Without an action meter its impossible to tell when your opponent will move and suddenly be out of the way by the time the ball gets there too. You also have exactly 2 minutes per battle. do not expect epic fights, you will only have rushed fights trying to stay alive and deal a lot of damage fast.
The map is this game's weak link. There is no on screen mini-map, the only one you have is a stationary unlabeled GPS in the pause menu. By the time I could figure out a way around the dome they would send me to a new one, was it a deliberate focus to make you perpetually confused? Maybe.
Overall, its an ok game, but a little more touching up and a couple more features would probably have gone well for making it a good game.
OMG, this game was horrible! It's so hideous to look at!
Look, I personally hated the wacky graphics and the annoying music.
The controls were horrible and so were the hideous camera angles.
DON'T get me started on the game's story! It's horrible and very un-thought out. It's like it was thrown together in pssh...three minutes.
This game is just icky and hideous. It's a failure on the Wii! And that's a shame, because the Wii is a good system!
These are some things I'd rather do then play this game:
Listen to that AWFUL music by Miley Cyrus.
Eat old liver.
Sell my favorite games on Ebay.
Get kidnapped by thieves.
Spill hot ramen on my head.
Get sued. (Which is very unlikely to happen since I'm too young to be sued. You can't sue a 12/half year old!)
Watch Itachi Uchiha from 'Naruto' kill my family.
And get run over by a train!
Ugh...let's hope Koei comes up with better games in the future! ;(
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....
