Excerpt: The world famous Chibi-Robo is back in Chibi-Robo Park Patrol for the Nintendo DS. The little helpful robot sets out to restore a polluted park back to its former glory. This is done by playing music for white flowers, and then watering the seeds that come out.
Conclusion: Left 4 Dead was already a great game and this new DLC, while overdue, is something that will definitely expand the lifespan of the game by a good long while. The only regrettably missing feature is the SDK for the PC version that would allow players to create their own maps and campaigns.
Summary: Parents need to know that this innovative game has a very positive environmental bent. Players control a robot whose sole goal is to restore a dilapidated urban park to a greener state, which is mostly done by tilling the earth and planting flowers.
Pros: Chibi-flavored graphics and sound effects intact, Layered gameplay mixes action and simulation, Surprising, from start to finish, Touch screen controls intuitive and fun
Cons: Certain cinemas repeat too often and go on too long, Does not match original Chibi-Robo's level of character or vertical awe, Gameplay loses its motivation in the last few hours, Instruction manual and in-game text don't explain certain functions very well
Excerpt: Every few months, a quirky title with a ridiculously odd premise will come along and take me by surprise. Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol, developed by Skip Ltd. and published by Nintendo, is easily one of the strangest games I�ve played in recently memory.
