    A nice an entertaining adventure that mixes the essence of the beat 'em up genre with some adventuresque elements, obtaining an interesting result from the latest chapter related to Dofus's universe. It's a worthy purchase unless you're looking for some online multiplayer options and a innovative way of presenting its unique story.

    Islands of Wakfu features a good variety in gameplay with some exploration, fast combat and lot of puzzles to solve, but each of these individual aspects has some flaws that disrupt the final result.

    Islands of Wakfu's plot is interesting, though abstract, and the art and music are fantastic but the gameplay really holds it back. It's not an experience that really lasts either. Fans of similar games are encouraged to give it a try, but there are better ways of spending your money on XBLA. It's not bad, but it just isn't as good as it should be.

    Though being visually marvellous, Islands of Wakfu fails to engage and entertain as we hoped. The clunky gameplay mechanics and its slow paced progression will in fact bore most gamers long before the adventure reaches its narrative climax.

    It's just hard to shake the feeling that Islands of Wakfu is, at its heart, something of a promotional item for its bigger brother. [Issue#109, p.103]

    Islands of Wakfu offers beautiful trees in boring forests. It's filled with good ideas but none of them has in the end turned out really well in the game.

    Pretty, but oddly unsatisfying to play. [July 2011, p.87]

    Only played the demo for two hours but people are reviewing this game too low. It is around an 8.5 at least. Beautiful environments, interesting story, unique characters bring together a really good game, especially for 10 dollars. Expand

    The story and visuals of the game are fantastic with a great soundtrack. The gameplay makes this one of the most unique games I have ever played. The game right now is only 800 MS Points and it's easily in my opinion a game with the quality of a $15 XBLA game. If you enjoy a story adventure along with being action packed then I highly recommend you to at least experience the trial of the game. If you're a fan of the Wakfu animation series as well then you should know that the events of the game are tied to some story elements of the series. A great game to play along with a great show to watch! Expand

    This game is GORGEOUS ! Incredible graphics... I like the cartoon feel that's in there. The story is amazing. 8 hours of gameplay at least, and I still hadn't found all the hidden secrets and stuff. The gameplay is very rich once you buy the right powers and make the right choices ! A xbox live-exclusive-must buy. Kudos. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The tutorial at the beginning is a little boring. But after, the combat system is very funny with the teleportation combos ! It's better to play in co-op mode. I think at the beginning Wakfu is a rpg but not ;) The music and the world is so gorgeous. Great game for only 800 pts ! Expand

    Its and Okay game. Based on a French mmo. Wakfu bring a good story and a great combat system where you changed from human to dragon in a flash. Can get slow at times and no online co-op Expand
