Freakyforms Deluxe Your Creations Alive
Family Friendly Gaming
7 September 2014
Excerpt: Nintendo tries all kinds of interesting, unique and different things. Some of them are slam dunk home runs. Others well they kind of slink into the annals of video game history. Freakyforms Deluxe Your Creations Alive is one of those games that most gamers want to forget. Families may find a few things of interest in this Nintendo 3DS hand held video game.
Conclusion: Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! is an admirable premise that spoils well before its implied expiration date. Creating hilarious living monstrosities out of crude odds and ends yields satisfying and impressive results, but endearment becomes tragedy when you discover there's nothing of interest to do with them. The simple act of creation might be enough for some, but I was bored to tears after that particular novelty wore off.
Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! (3DS) Review
13 October 2012
Excerpt: I admit that I am almost always sceptical when a developer decides to remove the original version of a game and add a more expensive “upgraded” edition. I also get very sceptical when said game also appears as a retail release and has some apparently unique feature attached to it. It feels like developers, in this instance, are perpetually holding back content to facilitate different releases of different SKUs.
Excerpt: This whacky 3DS game from Nintendo is the perfect platform for younger gamers to create their own virtual creatures called formees and their creation is only limited by the players imagination. By using the innovative controls of the 3DS, players can choose from over 600 different forms as they tweak these creatures to explore this rich and engaging world from adding wings or multiple legs like a centipede to their formees. It's all up to you.
Summary: Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! adds subtle improvements to the original download’s content. The dungeons and special action collectables add much needed variety to exploration, while the basic multiplayer is, like the title as a whole, irresistibly charming. Despite the improved environments and increased scope, however, the control scheme has once again overlooked basic customisation, while the element of chance in the dungeons can be frustrating.
