  1. And it's another clever import from Japan that will remind you why you're not done with your Gamecube just yet. Last generation talent will always trump next-gen technology. [May 2006, p.90]
  2. It has its share of quirks that do frustrate from time to time, but in the end the sheer charm, originality and fun-factor that Chibi-Robo exudes are uplifting enough to easily earn it my stamp of approval.
  3. An experience that you can truly get lost within. In truth, numerous pages could be written on the intricacies of what make this such a wonderful title, but that still would not get the sense of wonder across, or do the game its true justice.
  4. An amazingly fun game that breaks the mold yet remains accessible and easy to pick up and play.
  5. If you buy into the weirdness and air of wonder you'll find this as soothing as it is soulful. [May 2006, p.34]
  6. It has its share of quirks that do frustrate from time to time, mainly early on, but in the end the sheer charm, originality and fun-factor Chibi-Robo exudes is uplifting enough to easily earn the game my stamp of approval.
  7. It's a great no-brainer game that's nice to sit and play while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and some cookies. It's definitely not a game for those that don't already enjoy the odd quirkiness of the newer Nintendo games that have been coming out. [JPN Import]

    this game is alot of fun. it is nice to see some quirky jap games come to the states. had a blast with mr mosquito, and this game in some way reminds me of it. great for all ages! and it seems like these games should be reviewed by people who like these kind of games. not people who like sports games and such. thats the problem these days. opinions are like assholes, everyone has got one.

    Don't be fooled by it's quirky robots and toys: This game is actually pretty good. How they took a mundane task like chores, and made it into a fun, sometimes dramatic, game is beyond me, but those crazies at Skip did. It. If you (for some reason) are looking for Gamecube games to try, give this one a spin. It won't disappoint... or maybe it will... It's an acquired taste. Full Review »

    An abomonabaly bad mess that's about as fun as cleaning a clogged toilet with your bare hands.
