Story: You play the role of a young, lonely boy. One day he chases some rats that infiltrate his room, and in the process of chasing them into the forest he comes across a magnificent crown. This royal head piece causes the people of a nearby village to see him as their rightful king, and they obey you without question. Howser, the Bull Knight, gets you headed in the right direction to establishing your kingdom and world domination. You also find that the rats you chased live in you new "castle" which looks more like a hut.
Gameplay: Similar to Pikmin or Overlord: Dark Legend, you have a group of units (your villagers) following you that you give commands to (you use the "A" button to send them to a given task rather than use the pointer like in Overlord: Dark Legend.) They can attack, build bridges, dig holes (in designated spots), etc. Your village has a certain population size as well as a maximum troop size that can follow you, so it's important to not let your villagers die needlessly in battle. You can give your Carefree Villagers jobs such as grunt soldiers and farmers that will grant them special skills to serve their liege all the better. As you conquer new areas, your village expands and new units become available. It shouldn't be too long before you have a sizable army of loyal villagers that can get married (adding kids to the village) and fill up your land.
Controls: Fortunately, there are no real flaws to the controls in this game. If you tap "Z" there will be a targeting line aimed in front of you to show where your villagers will go if you tap "A" to send them on some task. This makes it easy to know if you're sending them in the right spot. The camera is magnificent. The only real issue I have is that the pointer wasn't used to guide your army, but it still works fine the way it is. You can easily sort your troops by type with a simple tap of the control pad, so you always have the right troops ready to command (a feature that is necessary in these types of games).
Graphics: Very stylish. The artbook feel is unique, and it circumvents the weaknesses of the Wii's capabilities. It looks beautiful, and the style adds lots of flavor to an already appealing dish.
Music/Sound: The music in Little King's Story is great. It's classical music, and it's integrated perfectly into the game. It fits the mood and enviornments better than I would have imagined. Their is no real voice acting, but there are some random mumbling sounds when characters are talking. In my opinion these mumblings are fine, but others might find it annoying.
Overall: Little King's Story is an excellent game. The controls, graphics, sounds, and gameplay work together to make a great story for anybody willing to put the time in. It was well worth the money I spent for it (46.99 here at Amazon), and would advise anybody to give this game a shot.
It is fun, different, entertaining, has cute artistic graphics and overall provides a nice gaming experience. I think the "teen" rating is because of an unexpected incident near the ending.
This game is amazing. It is simultaneously the kind of quality I'd expect form a first-party Nintendo title and one of the most consistently surprising in terms of content and themes. You might think you have an idea what you're getting into. Maybe you know how challenging it gets (if you dare to take on the higher difficulties), maybe you know how every boss is memorable and unique and challenges your skills, maybe you know how much content there is to dig into but trust me... this game has plenty of surprises in store.
By all means, 2 hours in you might still be convinced this is some Baby's First Pikmin title. But the story, themes and content are not going where you think they are. This is one of those once-in-a-lifetime games that really left its mark on me, and maybe it's not everyone's cup of tea, but if you even think you might be vaguely interested, don't hesitate to give it a shot. This game sits pretty at the #1 spot of my favorite Wii games, and it's one of the best I've played in a long time, for many reasons. It has some flaws, like any game, but the pros are at least a few tiers above the cons.
