Chibi-Robo review

Hello Kitty meets her match

Pros

  • Original concept
  • Devastatingly cute characters
  • Challenging puzzle elements

Cons

  • Baffling story
  • Slow pacing
  • When do we get to drive the hotrod?!

The toxically cute Chibi-robo reminds you that the GameCube is more about quality gameplay than gory violence. Sure, it provides more fodder for Xbox fanboys to point and shout "kiddy" at Nintendo's flagging console, but jogging a miniature robot around in search of stains is absurdly fun, so who really wins that argument? Maintaining a household's harmony with only your tiny metal pincers and sheer force of will challenges even the most hard-core monster-gamer.
