The graphics are good, the production company really paid attention to detail. It's impressive doing the turn-based battles and seeing the environment come alive: i.e. the clouds are moving, the water's in motion, heck even leaves falling from the trees - all these details add up quite nicely. It's a very big, detailed world too as far as I've seen which is great (more to explore) and though I have read about people getting confused because of it, I could tell they were judging from the first Dome, which can be confusing but subsequent domes are simpler!
Another qualm I have read about is the cutesy graphics, it's true that they are but that is just a matter of the style in which they decided to take the game (at least it's consistent).
The music is definitely a super-plus for the game, the composer did a wonderful job of making it come alive in that respect and at least that aspect has been lauded in reviews.
Having to take on Jobs and get licenses can be a lot of fun, it gives the game a real-life feeling and a sense of accomplishment once you've gotten your license.Read more ›
I really think the character designs for Opoona and family are what hurt it most. His unique people, and how they battle, are a big part of what makes this game so great. It's just that a casual glance at the box art would make most people write it off as a kid's game, and pass it by. There are lots of different life forms in Opoona's universe, his just happens to look like Fisher Price people.
Opoona is anything but a kid's game. In fact, if you bought this game for a child, chances are he/she would have been happier with a nice pair of socks. They'd certainly get more use out of them, anyway.
You don't play Opoona, you live out his everyday life, and the lives of his family. You have to learn how to survive, adjust to new surroundings, and situations, and create strong friendships, in a galaxy where Opoona's people are somewhat unique. So, there's a little bit of proving yourself along the way, as well.
Stepping into Opoona's shoes truly is daunting at first. As others have mentioned, your first home is vast, and confusing. You will get the hang of it, if you pay attention to signage, and remember that there is more than just one set of elevators on any given floor. If you stay on target, you'll be off to the second city in short order. Again, as has been mentioned, the hardest part is the begining. The important thing is to stick with it, and this game will reward you as few others in the genre ever did.
The story is engaging. The licensing system is brilliant. The part time jobs you can take run the full range from humbling, to laugh out loud hilarious.Read more ›
I am so glad that I did! Granted, the game is not for everybody. Although a turn-based RPG, fans of the genre may not appreciate it like I did.
Cons: The exploration is overly complicated in the first dome (i.e. city). There were so many rooms and such that I got lost almost immediately. Only by the time I beat the game was I finally getting a strong grasp of how to navigate it! However, when in the field (where random battles take place), the exploration is mostly linear. Lots of time is spent wandering around the domes, trying to figure out what to do. Although, in some ways that can be a pro if you like that type of exploration.
Pros: The two aspects of the gameplay that make this game really fun are the battle system and the different licenses/jobs you can aquire. The jobs are interesting. Some of them are used to progress the storyline, while others are side events that you can play for fun or to gain rewards. Licenses include jobs such as fisherman, janitor, and psychic. Although the jobs aren't deep and fleshed out, they can add a nice distraction from the rest of the game.
The battle system is what really makes the game shine. You will eventually have three characters at your disposal in the real-time combat of Opoona. Although you can't move around, time constantly flows leaving you with little time to plan your next move.Read more ›
