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.
Excerpt: Chibi-Robo is a fun-filled adventure. This action title for the Nintendo Gamecube is - interesting, to say in the least. No one has ever taken this type of game into action. I mean, who would want to do chores with their free time?
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
Summary: Skip Ltd is a company that may not be recognised over in the West for its name, but the team has quite a prolific history under different companies. It also produced the critically acclaimed, yet released only in Japan, GameCube title GiFTPiA.
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.
