  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.

    The way the game loaded was very frustrating at times. While you were running across the fields, the game would stop dead cold and just load for a two minutes. The fighting was kind of good, although it was a bit clunky at times. The story was kind of average, the quests were repetitive.

    The Dialogues were kind of confusing. Why did they put voices in the cutscenes but not in the actual game? Despite this, the voice acting was surprinsingly good, when you did have some. The open world was well designed, but the caves were way too ard to navigate around. i was stuck in the cave looking for the sister for about three hours.

    I feel like there was so much potentiol for the AI to be better, but the ennmies were just reatrds that ran in straight lines. If there was a wall, they would keep walking into it. The friendly NPCs were even more retarded. They just stood there being weird. The graphics were simple yet beautiful. The soundtrack was nice. I still have the songs in my head today! I have discovered very little bugs.

    Overall, this game is worth buying if you could find it for less than 10 bucks.
