  • Summary: All the hamsters are bickering, and there's little wonder why! Spat, a meddling troublemaker, is telling fibs and causing heartache everywhere. It's up to Hamtaro and best-girl Bijou to follow Spat, stop the squabbling, and get everyone back on talking terms again.

  1. It's a saccharine-sweet little big adventure, which engrossed us right through to the end, and if you're in the market for a spot of light relief in your adventuring, you could do worse than give Ham-Ham Heartbreak a little TLC.
  2. A pleasant enough game that seems like a sure way to keep fans of the show happily occupied for hours on end. Older gamers who aren't turned off by the cutesy style and themes will find a moderately long and generally amusing trip through this silly little cartoon world.
  3. The sheer amount of variety makes up for the game's simple design, and the story is positively adorable. [Summer 2003, p.41]

    Controlling cute hamsters into having cute conversations is definitely not everyone's cup o' tea, but it's hard to ignore that the game has a certain engrossing charm.
  5. A cute, enjoyable game that is suitable for young players. [Apr 2003, p.135]
  6. Running around trying to solve puzzles with trial and error just isn't fun, but it is an improvement over the last game.
  7. 43
    I really wish it had been made more accessible - cute without being cloying, tricky without being frustrating, and so forth. While a decent intro to the dating sim in the United States, it will require a lot of work before this can ever catch on.
