  1. Easy to pick up, hard to put down. [Nov 2006, p.82]
  2. It's hardly the Playstation 2's perfect platformer - it's a bit too linear, and it's obviously got a slant towards a younger audience with the puzzle solving at points - but Tokobot Plus is a game enjoyable by young and old alike.
  3. [A] half-assed port. The camera is still a problem, controls are still awkward, and save point restarts are still a pain in the butt. However, unlike on the PSP, there are fewer excuses for these flaws on its more established big brother.
  4. Most of the game's content has been ported over to the bigger console, with very little improvements to the design and only a few new puzzles and challenges added.
  5. This really does deserve a proper sequel - but on the PSP where it belongs. [Feb 2007, p.76]
  6. Feels a bit half-arsed in execution. A missed opportunity, all in all. [Feb 2007, p.77]
  7. Don't explore these Mysteries. [Holiday 2006, p.84]

    A great game but the camera and controls were not very good.

    A very underrated game. Has its charm and uniqueness. If it just had better controls and had better replay value, it could of been a better game. Play a very different game to what you have played before with this unique game. Expand
