Summary: The game in general is not good. It's actually very bad, but that's besides the point. I bought the game for novelty; to have it on the bookshelf and to look nice, but my point is that it came in a cd case and really disappointed me.
Summary: This really is one of the best games ever!!! "Why?", You ask. Well, to put it in a nutshell, everybody loves to play God., and with this game, you actually get to be that God, create hills, valleys, and islands. Help the locals build villages, but do be careful that you dont step on a villager!!!
Summary: About a year or so ago I traded this game in so I could buy Donkey Konga. Now I am seriously regretting that choice. This game is absolutely brilliant and full of character. Plus if you are just absolutely evil, you spend a few in-game days helping all the villages, then turn evil, destroy it all...
Summary: Doshin the giant gives you the oppertunity to be a giant, and help islanders establish settlements. Or you can turn into Joshin's alter ego and cause havoc. You can grow by absorbing the love and hate of the islanders.
Summary: A simple, fun game perfect for kids and adults alike. Nice and relaxing gameplay with that classic 'sandbox' feel. Gaming needs more titles of this nature, and the Game Cube has something special with this one.
Excerpt: Either the world has gone wacky or I have missed something fundamental in the manual for this game. As far as I can tell, although admittedly I've not tested this to its fullest, the whole objective is to keep a bunch of islanders either happy or fearful depending on your mood and sadistic...
The most Japanese thing ever to be let loose on Europe...
11 December 2003
Summary: Weird. Very, very weird. You wonder why fantastic RPG's are never released in Europe, yet Doshin The Giant, a game where you play a yellow giant who has to help out tiny villagers, is released over here... But lets not give this game a bad name.
Excerpt: It seems odd to have Doshin the Giant cross the shores from Japan over here in Europe. It has the look and feel of a Japanese-only game but Nintendo seem to be pushing their quirkier games into different territories.
Summary: Want to be a giant ? Want to destroy/build a primitive world ? Want to see nice sun shine and nice beaches ? Want to move over mountains ? Want to experience the power of being a giant ? If so this is your game.
