  • Summary: In the last Chibi-Robo adventure, our diminutive hero restored happiness to the Sanderson home, but in this DS sequel, he’s taking on the great outdoors. Playground equipment in the park is mysteriously disappearing and the flowers in the park have been transformed by evil monsters. It's up to Chibi-Robo to save the day and make the park a nice place to visit again. This time around, Chibi-Robo gets to flex his mechanical muscles in new and interesting ways. He rides buggies, cars and boats across lawns and ponds, fights mysterious enemies with his trusty squirter, dances in the park to give life to the plants there and builds playground equipment to make the park a better place.

  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. 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. Like the original GameCube "Chibi-Robo", the Chibi sequel is a leisurely affair with gentle messages. [Nov 2007, p.102]

    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.
  5. A game with much more emotional depth to it than you might expect. [Chrismas 2007, p.116]
  6. It is surprisingly fun, challenging and addictive despite its near terminally cute premise.
  7. 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.

    Loads of fun on the go! I used to play the original Chibi-robo on the Gamecube and love this game on the DS! The graphics are pretty well done for a 2007 DS title and it definitely retains the charm that the Gamecube title had! Chibi-robo ought to be a real robot to do my gardening too.. Expand
