Chocobo and the Magic Picture Book [import] review

  • Painfully cute
  • Amusing minigames
  • Directing your chocobo with the stylus
  • Minigames are too easy or too difficult
  • PopUp Duel is lame
  • Not much to do here

Success in these games earns playing cards, used for a game called PopUp Duel which is sadly less than captivating. Although as in all guess games, there’s some benefit in making decisions based on probability, there’s no escaping that this is a four-pronged game of Paper, Scissors, Rock.

But if, like us, you’re the kind of doughy-brained loon that would stick footage of their newborn Final Fantasy XI chocobos on to YouTube, then you should import. Because from the moment the title screen follows the stylus around with its massive eyes, this game is frighteningly adorable.
