Tired of all those positive reviews and previews
for Loco Roco
that say the game is "fresher, funnier and more satisfying than words could ever make it sound
." and "guaranteed to keep you smiling too." Well, all you contrarians out there can count on a nine year old girl to tell it like it is.
San Jose Mercury News reporter (and book author) Dean Takahashi let his daughter Tanya try out the demo version of the game and give her honest opinion on the Merc's gaming blog. Tanya is none-too-kind, saying the game is best suited "
for younger kids such as five- or six-year-olds," and that the music (which an older reviewer
called "joyful, atmospheric [and] poignant") is "annoying with the baby singing." The final verdict? One out of four stars. Ouch!
