    Funky Barn is addictive, and might keep you playing for a several hours, but it's not satisfying or memorable. That's a characteristic I often associate with mobile and handheld games, the latter of which this game is derived from.

    If you want to "get funky" please select a different farm. Funky Barn starts off decent, but a little bit of playing will make you realize that it is a boring game that offers nothing of substance. Unless you are a fan of low quality farming games, I would have to say this is one Wii U title worth skipping

    It's nice, but not more. It can't hold a candle to the more established series like Harvest Moon, Farmville and all the others. Surprisingly, it's a full priced game, but it's only fun for a few hours.

    Funky Barn had a lot going for it, and in many ways it works a treat thanks to some smooth controls and the farming element proving to be quite fun. However, when a lot of the processes become automated later on, the enjoyment factor starts to wane considerably. On top of this, despite having some pleasing options, the general amount included does not warrant its high retail price-tag, and it would have been far more palatable had it been a cheaper eShop download.

    Don't let the incessant trolling of its Miiverse community delude you, as Funky Barn is not an entirely bad game. It's far from pretty, but its simple gameplay is quite addictive while it lasts and it controls well.

    Funky Barn is very basic but passably entertaining. As a lower-price downloadable game it'd be much better value, but as a $50/£30 Wii U launch title it's more difficult to recommend.

    The targeted demographic often seems to become an excuse for developers to offer little content and oversimplified game mechanics, but any parent that wants to offer something their kids could enjoy on their brand new Wii U should think twice before investing in this title.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. its not even funky. I was going into this game expecting to funk myself but it did not even satisfy this. It has a revolutionary story that blew my mind at the end. Although they did sacrifice the funkiness for this. Expand

    I enjoyed this game alot. Knowing nintendo products like I do and reading reviews for other systems I knew this wasn't going to be a hardI enjoyed this game alot. Knowing nintendo products like I do and reading reviews for other systems I knew this wasn't going to be a hard game or very diverse. I would love to see a sequel to this with more options and animals. This game is great to pass the time and it's not very costly. (I only paid $29.99 but im sure you can find it cheaper.) Overall great game. Expand

    I receieved the German version of this game, so that was fun. Erm.. where do I start? It's honestly not that great of a game. Could easily beI receieved the German version of this game, so that was fun. Erm.. where do I start? It's honestly not that great of a game. Could easily be a mobile game which I would love to see. It's honestly just not made for the Wii U. The graphics aren't great, and the game gets boring after a while. And you can only play it on your TV, which I didn't like personally when you can easily play the game on one screen. I don't regret playing it but I regret completing the game since the new unlocks get very, very repetitive. Is it worth £15+? Nope, not at all. It's a nice game to play with your family but erm... I wouldn't personally pick it up. Just install a free-to-play mobile farming game from the app store or find one online. Expand
