Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol review

Picking flowers with this tiny robot is far more fun than you might think

For

  • Growing flowers
  • Driving bouncy vehicles
  • The eco-friendly theme

Against

  • Unskipable
  • inane dialogue
  • Shoulder button control combos
  • Shopping at Wal-Mart

Oct 8, 2007

While we don%26rsquo;t usually endorse specific retail outlets, Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol for the DS is being sold exclusively at Wal-Mart, which might be a bit ironic to some considering the game%26rsquo;s overt environmental themes. Similar to its GameCube predecessor, this portable offering has you controlling a tiny robot with a rechargeable battery and a power plug tail once again. Instead of doing in-home chores, Chibi-Robo is now outdoors where he is trying to simultaneously get rid of pollution while beautifying a park.

The premise sounds cutesy, but bear with us. It%26rsquo;s far less annoying than it sounds.

GenreAction
DescriptionA spunky robot and an almost terminally cute premise mix well in this environmentally themed, surprisingly addictive sandbox game. Expect to spend many days fighting smog monsters, earning Happy Points and picking plenty of pixilated flowers.
