Excerpt: New Zealand Story Revolution allows the player to take on the role of Tiki. He must save his friends from the evil Leopard Seal, by freeing them from various locations in New Zealand. I am not making this up, this is what this Ignition Entertainment game says.
Conclusion: New Zealand Story: Revolution is an enjoyable, challenging platform adventure which requires a lot of paying attention towards both the DS screens. If you liked the original New Zealand Story and its past sub sequels you will enjoy this outing, and it’s welcoming enough to please beginners!

Pros: solides Gameplay, ganz spaßige Boss-Kämpfe
Cons: kaum spielerische Höhepunkte, Grafik und Sound wenig DS-gerecht, teils nervige DS-"Features", Multiplayer featuring Schmalhans als Küchenmeister
