The answer is a game called Neopets: The Darkest Faerie. In this game you start off as Tor, a young knight in training. He was living happily on the family farm with his parents and sister but that all changes when you have to deliver a parcel to the knight academy.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Neopets: The Darkest Faerie takes those collectible creatures that started hitting the American market a couple of years ago and puts them in their first action adventure game. Visually, The Darkest Faerie fits the mystical, fantasy-like world you would expect to see from the settings described in the toy line. You will travel from dense forests to large castles to swamps and deserts.

  • Excerpt: In late 2005, the Neopets made their jump to the PlayStation 2 console with the release of Neopets: The Darkest Faerie . The game is an action adventure where hardcore Neopets fans and younger audiences might find some enjoyment, but anyone else may want to pass on this title.

  • Summary: Taking players on an adventure through some magical worlds, Neopets: The Darkest Faerie is a decent RPG style adventure based on the popular cartoon's cast of characters. There's a solid quest with loads of mini-games in addition to the main quest. Players switch between two main characters during the adventure, which adds some variety to the gameplay, and there are some interesting dungeons and enemies to explore.

  • Excerpt: For the first time, though, Neofans can experience Neopia in fully-realized 3D. The Darkest Faerie, set primarily in the country of Meridell, tells the tale of Tormund, a country-bumpkin Lupe (an anthropomorphic dog of sorts) who longs to be a knight, and Roberta, an Acara who serves as a young diplomat for the Kingdom of Brightvale. The story itself is fairly standard for this type of game.

  • Conclusion: The replay factor will clearly depend on the player. For those that love Neopets then this game will be played for a very long time to come. For the rest though, there isn’t too much to do once the quest has been completed and because of the lackluster combat system, it’s doubtful too many people will want to play through the adventure again. Neopets is clearly a game that is going to sell well based on its name over its deep gameplay.

Neopets: The Darkest Faerie Review

GameSpot
16 November 2005
  • Summary: Neopets: The Darkest Faerie is a much stronger license than it is a game, as it's plagued by overly expansive environments and poorly realized combat sequences.
  • Pros: Makes good use of Neopets creatures and environments, Large expansive environments, Great menu navigation system
  • Cons: Combat is just plain bad, The large environments necessitate too much backtracking, The maps don't always clearly indicate your next objective
