Little King's Story

 

Beginning life as 'Project O', and revealed soon after the Wii's release, Little King's Story had an immense backing of talent right from the get-go. Skilled developers from games such as Harvest Moon, Final Fantasy XII and Dragon Quest VIII banded...

Little King's Story brings together a mix of game styles and genres, and blends them all perfectly. Some may lament on minor issues with the game like crowd control and the simple fighting mechanics, but the incredible spirit and flair LKS has shines...

Little King's Story

 

This deep, challenging, and beautiful RTS-RPG hybrid is cleverly disguised as a child-friendly introduction to the strategy genre.

Gorgeous visuals ; Epic boss battles ; Guaranteed to make you smile through its wit and its charm ; Layered with subtle cross-cultural references

Some sound effects grate after the first few hours ; Weak story

Little King’s Story

 

For a console founded on quirkiness, it's odd that many of the more ambitious titles in the Wii's library have been met with such little commercial success; No More Heroes, Boom Blox, MadWorld, Eledees, and even some of Nintendo's big-hitters such as...

Little King's Story (Wii) review

 

Who says you can't do RTS on a console?

With both its addictive, rewarding gameplay and the wealth of imagination that’s been poured into the presentation, it’s incredibly difficult to stop playing Little King’s Story. In fact, you’re lucky that we even got around to writing this review at...

Little King's Story

 

The minds behind Harvest Moon, Final Fantasy XII and Dragon Quest VIII have teamed up, Three Amigos-style, to create an RPG with life-simulation elements.

Build your kingdom from the ground up ; Train villagers with specific skills ; Dig up treasure ; Manual camera ; User-friendly menu screens ; Attractive graphics ; Save via Verde at any time

No motion controls ; Camera rotates but doesn't tilt or zoom much ; Dead UMAs sprout up in cleared areas ; It's not hugely difficult to kill UMA bosses ; Dead soldiers cost you money

The longer you play, the greater the detail becomes and admittedly the more rewarding it is (the dead are mourned by the other townspeople and lovers can be married in a church). There is also no shortage of treasure/hunting quests but Little King's...

Little King's Story Review

 

A Wii exclusive from the creator of Harvest Moon. The rare genre hybrid that succeeds.

Overall, Little King's Story being a more introductory multi-genre game, the player is encouraged to play it in only a certain way, thus limiting replay value. For instance, you could technically fight all your battles with hardworking farmers. It...

Little King's Story (Wii) Review

 

Little King's Story may look like your typical cutesy Wii game, but its less than innocent take on death, polygamy, imperialism, and religion as well as its ego-crushing difficulty show that you shouldn't always judge a book by its cover.

Little King's Story

 

I'll fess up; my gaming ego has been bruised. The culprit? Little King's Story (LKS), a game with such cutesy art and simplistic battle mechanics, that it seemed it would be anything but a challenge. But here I sit–pained, ashamed, and in disbelief...

Little King's Story is a great addition to the Wii's library. It's one of the more groundbreaking games to come out this year, especially considering many of the uninspired titles making their way to the Wii. Will Little King's Story be everyone's cup...

Little King's Story

 

Maybe Little King's Story should have been rated M by the ESRB, because it is through mature eyes that Cing and Xseed's unique strategy adventure was certainly meant to be viewed. Behind the childlike veneer of bright, cutesy graphics, classical music,...

If you're looking for something good on the Wii, I recommend that everyone at least give Little King's Story a try.
