3.0 out of 5 stars Fun game but has a Game Breaking Glitch November 24, 2012
By John
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It's really simple, Funky Barn is a farm management game for the NEW Nintendo Wii U console. It's a port or updated version of the game offered on the Nintendo 3DS with the added option of being able to "Pet" your animals to make them happier using the Wii U Gamepad (the one with the LCD screen). I am renting this game and have not purchased it.

I've taken 2 stars off for three reasons:

1. The recurring game breaking glitch that freezes the game/console.
2. The issue of NOT being able to build fences/walls to the very edge of the farmland barrier.
3. A 90 second loading cutscene slideshow that is UNSKIPABLE and plays everytime you load/start a farm from the Main Campaign and Challenge Mode.


First comes first. There is a troublesome game breaking glitch that has been occurring in my gameplay. After completing the main campaign story for the 1st available farm on the easy difficulty I ran into a glitch that causes the game and console to completely freeze. Whenever I would build one last structure, the game would have the "Home" screen popup and if I back out of that the whole console and game where frozen. The only available option is to restart the console and load the game up again. Unfortunately, you end up losing a good portion of your game progression even if you save shortly before the game/console freeze.

I believe the issue is caused by having too many items in the game which causes the game and console to overload and freeze. What's annoying is that there is no in game system to stop this from happening. Even after completing the campaign and completing your farm you can keep playing as along as you lay off building too many items.

1.0 out of 5 stars Funky Barn Freezes and you loose all your progress! December 28, 2012
By Bonnie

My sons have this game since they love anything farming. They have fun with the game but get dissappointed with the game freezing up and loosing all progress! We ended up just shutting the game off after loosing all of our progress. I wouldn't buy this game for this reason alone!!!

First, and foremost, there is NO auto save or obvious save feature on this game- in order to save your farm, you HAVE to press the "+" button and choose save. My daughter lost three hours work and her entire farm assuming that this game had autosave (like most games) so don't make the same mistake!

Here's the general review: We were lucky enough to get a Wii U shortly after Thanksgiving, but after a week or so of playing nothing but Nintendo Land (and my seven year old daughter mastering all those games and begging us to play with her) I wanted to get a game that she could play on her own that also took advantage of the Wii U capabilities. I managed to catch "Funky Barn" when the price was much lower (29) so I decided to go ahead and order it.

So far, she loves it. She's played for a few hours and is steadily building her farm. It's sort of like a mix of Farmville and Sim City- and as your farm grows and your animals grow, they need more and more from you.

Don't get me wrong- this is not the game that will show you how amazing your Wii U's capabilities are. It's basically a DS game that's been quickly ported to the Wii U, and the majority of game play is the same on the Wii U touchpad as it is on the TV screen. But my daughter really feels like it's something great since she's using the touchpad constantly with the game and she's seeing the "fruits of her labor" (no pun intended) on the TV screen.

I would never pay $50 for this game. But for 30 or so, I think it's worth it- especially now, when the Wii U is brand new, there aren't very many lower price games for it, *we* don't have many games for it, and it's a good game for solo play for kids or anyone who likes simulation games. It's actually very cute, and easy to master, but challenging enough that my husband has started collaborating very intensely on the layout of the farm.

If you can get it at a lower price point, I would highly recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars too bad :( January 2, 2013
By keri
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is so much fun but you can't play it because of the glitches...mostly disappearing fences, game shutting down when you buy your last trough, machines not doing what they are supposed to and then there are the strange cloud thoughts the animals have that aren't explained anywhere. If they fix these I will play again, otherwise it will be collecting dust on my shelf

3.0 out of 5 stars Its fun...for a while February 25, 2014
Verified Purchase
I got it for my 3 year old. It was too difficult for her. But my 10 year old had fun with it. But when your farm gets too big, it gets overwhelming and not as much fun anymore. We played it a lot over a few days and then gave up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Harder for the pre-K and Kindergarten crowd February 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
We got this for my daughter who is 5 and its a little trickier than we thought and she isn't quite ready for it. My 8 year old likes it and I help both play and with the challenges. Its cute though and fun when I am helping them.

3.0 out of 5 stars's ok! January 11, 2013

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Like the other reviews I was not that impressed & agree with their assessments of the game. Though I read through them before purchasing I had hopes that it wasn't as bad as it was made out to be... unfortunately it was false hope. The game itself is actually fairly fun & addicting besides the incredibly annoying random tornadoes. You have to set up these huge storm-diverters at all corners of your farm if you dont want the tornadoes taring through everything you just built. Its super annoying to say the least and I really wish you could turn them off! Maybe I missed it in the initial settings, not sure. Besides this issue yes there is a glitch that freezes up the game. I honestly didnt care, I just restarted the game & went back to my farming. However toward the end of the game when you unlock the final animal (buffalo) there is no information on what to do with them. Every other animal comes with a machine or some kind of tool in order for you to sell what they produce to keep running your farm. Well the buffalo just grew huge and there was nothing in the inventory nor any info on what to do with them...a little frustrating bc. there is literally no info online either. Now the game itself like mentioned before was addicting regardless of all its short-comings but that being said...I beat it in a few hours. My children played awhile & became bored because it wasnt enough like Viva Pinata to them which we thought it might be originally. Altogether my honest opinion is that this really should have been like an app on the iphone, android tablet or even Facebook & not worthy of being a console game...and most def. not worthy of costing more than 5-10$. So just save your money & wait for this to show up in your Wii store sale section in a couple of months for way under Amazon costs.

I don't see the appeal, but my 5 year old loves it. I personally think the game layout is wonky and not well thought out. It could have been much better, but it's just not there.
