    The game is geared towards a younger audience, so older players probably won't find it too challenging but then again, that never hurt a game like Pokemon, and it doesn't hurt Juka either.
  2. There isn't a whole lot of replay value once you've finished the game, but the adventure is long enough to keep a player entertained for quite a bit of time.
  3. If you're up to the challenge of dealing with the combat issues then Juka shouldn't disappoint.
  4. Don't be fooled by it's boxart or weird name, though; Juka isn't a bad game by any means. Buy it for your kids, rent it for yourself.
  5. The potion problems bring down the rest of the game's brighter spots.
  6. Juka's quest is aesthetically pleasing and incorporates a couple of twists on the usual action role-playing game blueprint, but the easygoing gameplay is clearly geared toward inexperienced players.
  7. Feels more like doing chores than saving a world. Combat is both clunky and unengaging, and hearing the story just isn't worth trudging through the slow gameplay.
