    I was blown away by how good the game was. I love how the main character is in the battles and how the cinemas actually have voices and are acted out. The new spectrobes are very cool and the spectrobe that you ride to go faster is awsome (warning, you might get addicted and thus don't search for minerals/spectrobes as often). the only reason i said 9 instead of 10, was because even though the main character gets cool diverse weapons, the spectrobes don't do as much in battle as they used to unless there is a second player. Don't get me wrong, the weapons are cool, but spectrobes 2 for ds was going strong with combat. This combat is more fluid and fun, just less spectrobe action than i hoped for. Expand

  1. A very impressive game. Though it is not punishing in difficulty or complex in story, the gameplay is fun, and collecting all of the game's Spectrobes makes for some decent replay value. This game is an easy recommendation for new RPG gamers, or RPG fans who don't take themselves too seriously.

    Consider Spectrobes a fun opportunity to bond with your kids by saving the galaxy from the latest alien menace, and enjoy these times while you still can. In just a couple years, they'll probably be asking you to buy them the equivalent of Modern Warfare 2.
  3. A surprisingly delightful action-RPG. It is, by no means, the most original or most exotic game on the Nintendo Wii, but for a console that is looking for its next big title to lure its gamers back, Spectrobes: Origins is a great pick-up for any gamer.
