  1. A surprisingly strong game that does so many of the fundamental things right. Smooth, colorful graphics, a respectable score, a working camera (I can't stress this enough), and a 15-20 hour action-adventure quest are good points for which almost any game should strive.
  2. If you’re a fan of Neopets you will like this game.
  3. Even though some things were annoying or repetitive it is still a good game. As far as graphics, sound, and gameplay I was quite pleasantly pleased.
  4. Too average of an adventure game to be interesting. The uninteresting story and gameplay are disappointing, especially since the game is based off such a popular franchise as Neopets.
  5. Riding on the popularity of the Neopets online game, the video game version turns out to be just an average action title, with some platforming thrown in.
  6. It’s an average action/adventure game for the Neopets fan; everyone else is strongly discouraged from playing.
  7. Everything seems like it was created four years ago, shelved and brought out on a rainy day when a semi-popular license could be bended around it.

    Many people don't want to play this game because of the trade mark Neopets and all stereotypes that come with that name. But given the chanceMany people don't want to play this game because of the trade mark Neopets and all stereotypes that come with that name. But given the chance this game will impress. The plot is not the most complex of things, but it is intriguing nevertheless, especially in how the two main characters stories intertwine. There is much land to explore with fun side quests and treasures to find. The enemies prove challenging but not overly so and the main quests are fun and unique to the game. Expand

It has a decent mix of puzzles, quests and fighting. The only real reason I gave it a 9/10 is that it has a few bugs that might need to be fixed, but overall I really enjoyed it. This game is good for both Neopets fans and those that have never heard of Neopets at all. Expand

    let's go ahead and get the flaws out away: the game lacks a lock on system which makes combat annoying because you mess. ESPECIALLY with thelet's go ahead and get the flaws out away: the game lacks a lock on system which makes combat annoying because you mess. ESPECIALLY with the "standing back up animation" during this animation where if you get knockback, hit, or thrown they'll sit down then Stand back up and enemies tend to spam attack you during his animation. This is annoying because during animation you can't block or attack or move out of their way you have to wait till the character is back on their feet.

    THE GOOD: the game has a wonderful somewhat open world of Neopia. The story was quite unique, and the best part, THERE IS NO UNNECESSARY LOVE INTEREST between the two main characters. I honestly expected there to be some stupid love interest between Tor and Roberta, because with this type of story when to heroes, male and female, journey together saving the world they end up falling in love which is kind of what happens and most children entertainment what that kind of story. despite the flaws I pointed out this is still a very entertaining game.

    The most vapid and simplistic piece of minimalistic design I have ever seen. Creativity has been thrown in the toilet. Polish is nonexistant.
