a cool, unique little game - a much better, more clever 'mascot' title for the psp than death jr (though it does have some of the same camera-orientation problems as most other psp action titles). only a bit in (still have magna carta to finish), but i can already tell it'll be wacky/semi-frustrating fun...

very pretty, great music/sound, & yes, good loading times - a bit reminiscent of the clank mini-robot adventures in r&c, but really a whole other type of gameplay...

Yeah, it's really a lot of fun.  It's getting great reviews, too (except Gamespy which wanted the robots to be individual characters - I think that would have bogged it down).  The levels are a lot longer than I expected (though I guess there are only eight of them), so it's not as "pick up and play" as I thought/hoped, but it's still pretty great.

I would be interested in this game, but the graphics are way too "kiddie."

I'm so glad I don't have this problem with things being too "kiddie."  Otherwise, I would have missed out ona ton of good games.

As for Tokobot, I think I had gotten turned off by the Gamespy review and stopped paying attention to it.  I apprently better go read some more reviews.  A PSP game that isn't basically a port of an existing franchise is a rare thing on the PSP.

I've been interested in this one for months, but haven't picked it up because I have too many things on my plate already.

Is that the 'new' DS Animal Crossing or the 'old' GC one and how can you tell the difference?
