Adequacy

HonestConnor, amazon.co.uk
6 January 2013
  • 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. It didn't come as it is shown in the image as being in a gamecube game case and, yeah, it sort of ruined everything I wanted it for.

6 April 2011
  • 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!!! Very Exellent Game!!!

Probably one of the best 'cube games

Milo Keeble "Fleeka", amazon.co.uk

  • 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 and sink the entire island below sea level....good times.

Endless Fun!

John Smith, amazon.co.uk
27 February 2007
  • 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. Eventually when a village is big enough its inhabitats will build monuments showing thier love or hate for Joshin.

Nice 'Black+White' type game for the Game Cube

The Longtime Gamer, amazon.co.uk
26 December 2006
  • 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. It may not look great, but it is a virtual port of an unreleased N64 game, so that is why it's graphicaly simple. Still the plain graphics hide a charming game that will provide many hours of relaxing gameplay.

I must have missed something

Traxia, Ciao
7 April 2004
  • 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 tendencies for a day and then try to beat that. You do this by moving trees... Some how I must have missed something because I can't believe that doing ...
  • Pros: You can be mean to strange people
  • Cons: As much fun as triple maths on a monday

Turning japanese

"doshinthegiant", amazon.co.uk
20 March 2004
  • Summary: Quirkily cool title that puts you in charge of a giant man who must help little villagers. This game is brilliant for relieving stress or just as a break from other average concept games. The only flaw of this game is that it may be too japanesey for some however everyone i know thoroughly enjoys the game. 4 Stars!!! Tippity top.

The most Japanese thing ever to be let loose on Europe...

"nintendo_addict", amazon.co.uk
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. As I said, Doshin is a yellow giant who must help an island thrive with life and beuty. But Doshin can go bad. With one tap of a button you have the power to fly and chuck huge balls of flame onto the innocent islanders.

Big Yellow Giant

3rdRockSa..., Ciao
10 May 2003
  • 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. We get Doshin the Giant and the people in the US get Animal Leader, both of which were expected to debut only in Japan. Doshin was in development for the N64DD, an add-on that never materialised, and so was ported over to the GameCube. ...
  • Pros: Enjoyable  |  Quite quirky
  • Cons: Slow paced  |  Fairly limited

Weird but funny

amazon.co.uk
21 January 2003
  • 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. A weird experience with some lack of control but big fun when you do not save by mistake your photos and you override the capacity of your memory card ( why nintendo does not use 8 megas memory cards like Sony ? ).
