Conclusion: Chibi-Robo is a game that manages to charm the crap out of you with its cute audio design and vibrant cast of characters. It also manages at times to give off a real sense of accomplishment as you explore each area of the house collecting items and completing quests. Although it isn't the longest or most technologically flashy game out there, Chibi-Robo should at least prove to be a highly entertaining experience for the gamer who's interested.
Excerpt: Chibi-Robo is the story of a small robot on a quest to spread happiness. Along the way he will meet a wide variety of characters and explore a house full of wonders. Is this just an exercise in household chores or is there more behind the cute little robot themed game?
Pros: Unique, funny, and charming, Awesome characters, Good mix of gameplay
Cons: Too cute too stomach, Somewhat short, Slower-paced
Excerpt: Ten years ago, outside of Japan, a game like Chibi-Robo would only be available to the most hardcore. Only those who shelled out the money for an import system and took a chance on ordering an obscure and quirky title in the back of a game magazine would discover a game such as this.
Conclusion: The value of the game is fairly decent. Players will more than likely be able to spend at least a good ten hours with the game, giving you lots of time to make people happy and upgrade Chibi. However, the game still has limited replayability, just like with similar games. It’s also on the easy side of things and probably won’t offer a serious challenge to most games.
Excerpt: Picking up garbage hasn't been this fun since Men At Work , but that really isn't saying much. That's right, the latest action adventure game from Skip and Nintendo has you collecting garbage, scrubbing stains, fetching odd items, and generally doing things that you might play video games to get away from.
Pros: Great cast of characters gives the game plenty of personality, Interesting sound design, Level design works well to create a sense of scale
Cons: Collection quests are tedious and unrewarding, Pace is interrupted by the day and night cycle and the need to recharge every few minutes, No challenge or excitement to be found in any of the menial tasks that make up most of the game
