  1. Sony has a great potential franchise here if they continue to polish and refine the gameplay and visuals with each installment, and I’d recommend they take this style of top-down action to the home consoles as well, adding even more features.
  2. 75
    While the gameplay is fairly entertaining, and the environments and effects are quite nice, the game starts to chug when too much is going on, and the so-so sound and menial menus will have you feeling that the game is lacking a certain amount of polish.
  3. Despite the low-level evolution of its RPG elements, Petpet Adventures still plays well, and its visuals and sound complement an easily accessible gameplay mechanic.
  4. 69
    The many different details that affect the Petpets are very interesting and in a bigger adventure they could have had a bigger impact. Many of the pieces are in place, they just need a home.
  5. Its cute and fluffy appearance is deceiving, as The Wand of Wishing turns out to be less accessible than the action RPGs it is derived from.
  6. Sadly, this Wand of Wishing grants players only an average game.
  7. It provides an adult style of gameplay with but set in a non-adult world that most parents could find little to complain about. However, for the older gamers out there, Neopets won’t serve as more than a passing distraction at best.
