  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. Many of the game's elements are dated, while others are just annoying and problematic. If you’re looking for a children’s game or you’re a die-hard fan of the Neopets, then you might find some enjoyment within this game. Otherwise, steer clear!
  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.

    Great game. The bosses were challenging but not throw the controller down and storm off challenging. I am a fan of neopets, and this game delivers.

    I give this a 10/10 because at the time (3 years ago) I found this game to be epic, funny and fun to play at the same time. After finishing this game, it gave me a feeling hard to describe and I still like this game really much today. Expand

    As far as games go it's pretty good. 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

    This game could be very fun, but it has different gameplay than the other games out there, of course. But it is a reasonably long game. This is however a great game to me. Expand

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