  1. Most surprising of all? This magnificent game, cream of the DS crop, is only available at Wal-Mart. If not for this sad lack of faith, I would expect Chibi-Robo to become one of Nintendo's brightest new mascots, transitioning between genres and systems while retaining a core gameplay structure.
  2. Nintendo Gamer
    The appeal of the characters will draw you through an initial period of confusion and into a genuinely excellente DS title. [JPN Import; Oct 2007, p.70]
  3. Nintendo Power
    Like the original GameCube "Chibi-Robo", the Chibi sequel is a leisurely affair with gentle messages. [Nov 2007, p.102]
  4. Even though the gameplay has changed somewhat drastically, Park Patrol still manages to capture the delightful essence of the original, only in a smaller package.
  5. 80
    Chibi Robo: Park Patrol retains the fun and charm of its console predecessor even if the gameplay is noticeably different.
  6. This fun, delightful adventure takes "going green" to an entirely new level and is full of unique characters and entertaining minigames.
  7. 80
    If you can handle the game's particular style (provided you live close enough to a Wal-Mart to buy one -- that's the only place you can get it), you'll find this a surprisingly well-designed game that offers significant playtime, will nurture latent gardening addictions, and will give you the goofiest "god game" experience you've had in a long, long time.
  8. 78
    It's surprising that Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol is only going to be available at one retailer, because the game is actually quite good. Not great, but definitely a surprisingly decent experience.
  9. It is surprisingly fun, challenging and addictive despite its near terminally cute premise.
  10. For the dedicated, it can provide several hours of fun, but its unbridled quirkiness may turn off others.
  11. games(TM)
    A game with much more emotional depth to it than you might expect. [Chrismas 2007, p.116]
  12. Fabby low-pressure gaming for kids or any lovers of all things bright.
  13. For all its exterior charm, Park Patrol is a game built largely on repetition and slow steps.
  14. 60
    Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol tries its hardest to find its niche, but while it has a subject appropriate to the Chibi universe and a concept fittingly original, it is held back in too many places to claim to live up to the standards set by Skip in the earlier title.
