True, it may not be the most difficult platformer, and it may have next to no replayability, but that's not important. This game is simply overloaded with charm. The world has a great art style that fits in with whatever artistic creations you make, no matter what they look like. The DS is the perfect system for a game based around art as well, with no need for pointing at any screens - just draw. The characters are all unique and memorable, and for the amount of characters there are, that's saying a lot. In fact, I've not seen a game yet that has as many unique and memorable characters as Drawn to Life. The music is some of my favorite video game music ever. And the story is so interesting and compelling, more so than a lot of video games I've played recently.
It may sound like I'm being overly positive about this game. But I'm not. Those are all completely accurate opinions I have on this game. If you don't own it already, you are doing yourself a major disservice.… Expand

The combat system is completely broken, requiring you to waste valuable time and materials (stickers) for absolutely no gain. With no leveling up, the turn based combat is pointless and time-consuming, serving no purpose but to collect money, which can be obtained far more quickly and easily by collecting "Things", turning them into stickers, and selling them. Worse yet, if you run out of stickers in combat, you are forced to run away, making the whole ordeal even more pointless. The boss battles are atrocious, requiring you to use specific stickers at specific times or else waste far too many of your stickers. To make matters worse, the specific stickers you have to use are always "Thing" stickers, which you can only ever have one of at any given time. Therefor, if you use the sticker at the wrong time, you're screwed. Worse still, if you fail to beat the boss the easy way, your partner will ridicule you for using too many stickers. The puzzles in the game can also be challenging, but too much so for my taste. Admittedly, the game looks very nice, and the music isn't terrible. But that doesn't excuse the horrid gameplay. (As I always say, gameplay before graphics.) Overall, this is a terrible game and I am sorry for buying it.… Expand
