Let's get the bad parts out of the way. For one, Park Patrol is plagued with repetition. You will be forced to see the same animations and dialog over and over. The repetition in the Chibi House is sort of a hallmark of the series and serves to center the action, but watching the same loops of your friends going out to work on the park, etc gets old fast. The control takes a while to get used to and it can be tiring to hold the DS in one hand and the stylus in the other while manipulating the d-pad and shoulder buttons to boot. The L and R buttons modify some actions but this scheme does not work well and is not very useful anyways. The control and interesting camera-centering together made killing my first Smoglings almost impossible, although by the end I was mowing them down like nothing. The pacing is as generous as the first game, building very slowly to the extent that it can be a little boring. It picks up the more tools, toys, and vehicles you get.
The graphics are good for a DS game. Screenshots of the game make it look much worse than it does. The art design is true to the original, and the toys have as much charm as in the first game (although there are no characters that are as attractive to interact with as the family in the original). The park is almost intimidatingly big at first and I admit that I was only half-done greening it up when the story ended.Read more ›
On the outside, the concept may appear simple - take control of Chibi Robo and help the environment by cleaning up a park... it isn't until you get about 5 or 6 hours in that you see the level of depth presented in this excellent addition to the Chibi Robo series. The main premise involves watering flowers (which takes a matter of 5 seconds), and once they grow, dancing by whipping out your beatbox and circling in time to the music with your stylus, which in turn helps the flowers produce more seeds. The better you dance, the more seeds will be produced. An in-game counter keeps track of how many flowers you've planted, and within certain increments, you'll occasionally be awarded with new gear to place and interact with in your park.
There are tons of upgrades, vehicles, items, and a slew of unique characters who'll assist you in construction in your park in return for some watts. Watts serve as the main currency and enery level in Park Patrol. You'll earn watts by completing certain tasks, interacting with objects, and most importantly, growing flowers. As you labor through daily tasks, your energy (watts) will slowly be drained, and you'll occasionally need to head back to your base to get a quick charge. Reach 0 watts, however, and you're in trouble.
This game is not without its downfalls, however. At times, the pace is very slow, especially during conversations you've heard over 30 times.Read more ›
The game itself is simple, and a little child who can read can play it. You will need a lot -- as in a LOT -- of patience and time to get through the whole game. The beginning stages are particularly frustrating because you can never do more than plant and grow one flower before you totally run out of battery and have to run back to your little Chibi-House to recharge. The day also seemed to end faster in the first few stages. I was in day 8 before I qualified to get a battery upgrade. Or maybe that's just me trying to familiarize myself with the controls. The game uses the stylus almost exclusively. The downside is that it keeps waiting for you to "touch" the touch screen before the dialogue (or anything much else) proceeds further. It gets to be tedious when Chet keeps asking if you want to convert your happy points into watts and recharge.Read more ›
