  • Excerpt: Naaaa, naaaa, na naaaah, naa! *boom* *boom, spish, boom* Superbell! Are you challenging me to a dance-off?!?! *Grrrrrr* It’s a dance off folks!!!!! It’s the Thriller, the dance of healing, the juggling fart blast, and my personal favourite, the hat trick complete with Zubo crushing giant cuboid cow, splat! There are cuboid ducks too…….

Pokemon-like battle game is funnier, with less violence.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a combat game with very little violence. Instead of battling with swords and other weapons to inflict harm, characters battle with humorous gags to chase away or knock out their enemies. The ESRB rating of E10+ for crude humor shows up in a few gags that involve farts. And the mild cartoon violence shows up in gags that involve hitting another with a tennis ball or punching someone in a cartoon manner that causes them to see stars.

  • Excerpt: In any genre of games, there are some entries that appeal to the masses, some that only hardcore fans have the background to enjoy, and some that are intended to bring in new fans. Many times, these last efforts are geared at younger players, and that makes sense. Zubo is clearly one of these "gateway" games, intended to bring younger players into the fold of RPG fans, and I was actually surprised to see it come out of EA.
