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.
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.
