    This game is garbage. the mini games mostly take luck and although the game is supposed to be based on card game battles, youll be spending 90% of the game playing mini games for the cards themselves. the battle system is pretty much absolute luck and played almost in a rock-paper-scissors fashion. music is your typical chocobo theme and final fantasy victory themes in about every This game is garbage. the mini games mostly take luck and although the game is supposed to be based on card game battles, youll be spending 90% of the game playing mini games for the cards themselves. the battle system is pretty much absolute luck and played almost in a rock-paper-scissors fashion. music is your typical chocobo theme and final fantasy victory themes in about every situation you get in. the only thing that i enjoy about this game really is that the graphics for DS is well done. i suggest you all avoid this piece of crap.

  1. A beautiful game to look at with some fun replayable mini games. Don’t expect an epic story, though – just lots and lots of Chocobos! [JPN Import]
  2. Irritating and irrational, Magic Picture Book treats you badly. Yet one flash of those choco-puppy eyes and your heart will flutter. The DS equivalent of Stockholm Syndrome. [JPN Import; Mar 2007, p.76]

    With its weird mishmash of genres, art styles and difficulty levels, Chocobo and the Magical Picturebook is sort of a mess. But it's the good kind of mess, born of a passionate development team that was determined to pack a ton of ideas into a DS cartridge. [JPN Import; Feb 2007, p.79]
