Crayon Shin-Chan [import] review

A rather tedious and drawn-out experience

Pros

  • Bizarre humor
  • we guess
  • Another option besides Wii Sports
  • Frightening your mother with this game

Cons

  • Boring minigames
  • Lame tasks
  • Too many buttock reveals

A young boy with a penchant for older women who regularly exposes his buttocks and genitals and refuses to let anyone to see him laughing. This is the Japanese quasi-equivalentof South Park, the ever-so-disturbing Crayon Shin-Chan. The oddest thing of all, though, is that this risqué show was translated into such a tame dud of a minigame collection.

Set around a series of locations in the eponymous hero's home town, you have to complete incredibly basic minigames as part of a TV quiz show. At home you water plants by aiming the hose with the remote pointer before playing "What's the time, Mr Wolf?" with the family pooch by ironically waggling the remote to stay still. Hmm. The school playground sees you scooping balls from a ball pool before throwing them into a net. Turgid stuff.
