Dewy's Adventure review

Classy developers get watered down in their second outing

Pros

  • Cool boss battles
  • Cute characters

Cons

  • Controls pretty much suck
  • Really bad music
  • Combat gets dull

Sept 28, 2007

Ever sipped from an innocuous mountain spring, only to find your guts afire hours later when the “refreshing purity” reveals its true bacterial payload? Like the Evian-to-be that had you hugging the porcelain that time in the Brecon Beacons, Dewy’s Adventure pledges refreshment, disguising a cruel backstabbing agenda within.

Backstabbing, you say? Okay, it’s a bit strong, but we must admit we’re disappointed. During the Wii’s wobbly training feet days, Elebits was the perfect crutch. Picking out just one of the Wii’s unique features - the pointer - Konami crafted a delightful, domestic rummaging game. It was short, sweet and, most importantly, was able to forget the old way of doing things, and fully embrace the alien experience that is Wii.
