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.
You have to watch this LONG Depressing cut scene EVERY time you play, instead of just the first time. It takes like 5 minutes and features the farmer dying. Gee.
You only get three maps to choose from. It defies all logic (geese can't go in the ponds?!) and instead of people walking around your farm its oddly shaped robots.
The gamepad works well with it (kinda like on Mario Maker). There is a learning curve and may frustrate children. In fact I had a lot of trouble with it but finally got the hang of it with pratice.
It was fun for about a day or two.
- Very long, unskippable cutscene. Essentially no excuse for this considering how easy it is to implement a "Push button to skip function"...
- Game freezes on occasion... Save often!
- VERY little content. You essentially have 3 difficulties to play two different game modes (the main game and a short campaign).
My son and I both enjoyed the game, but it could really use more content and less 'cut-scenery'.
I still give this game a 5 star rating because overall it is SUPER fun and SUPER cute!
