  1. If you’re a fan of Neopets, you’ll probably end up wanting to check this out because, well, you’re a fan. However, for the majority of the gaming populace, avoid this game like the plague. There’s no fun to be had here.

    When it comes down to it, The Darkest Faerie plays like a Zelda knockoff and looks like a Spyro ripoff. Save for the mote system, there really isn't anything interesting going on, which would be fine if the execution were better.
  3. 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 loadThe 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.

    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 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. Full Review »
