You can't judge a game by it's cover.
When I initially was looking at Opoona only one thing jumped out at me. That it was a traditional RPG on the Wii. A system that has had a shortage of such games. I barely even paid attention to it the whole time thinking that Koei was underestimating the Wii audience, and just giving them some simple game. Finally, I seen an online review and the battle system caught my interest immediately. The battles are part old school RPG, but with a twist. You charge up your attack and throw it in different ways almost like a baseball. What seems simple at first becomes progressively harder as they throw obstacles in your way and hide the more difficult enemies, making you take difficult shots to take them out quickly. Accuracy becomes even more crucial when you get the Power Plus, a weapon upgrade that lets you throw though enemies, making it possible to take out whole lines of enemies with the right throw...which takes a little practice. Weapon upgrades are very important, and innovative. You get to give your bon bon two coatings and three other abilities. Coatings include putting magic spells that activate when you hit an enemy, on top of your normal damage. And the abilities are things like making it heavier to make it go faster, and the Power Plus I previously talked about. But the thing that really sets Opoona apart is the job system. Very unlike other RPG job systems, it actually makes you obtain higher ranks to open new areas and get new abilities. Like mining rocks, fishing, and working fast food. It's a very addictive idea that will have you going from one task to the next until you suddenly look up and realize more time has passed then you would have imagined. The story isn't going to be winning any awards anytime soon though. It's very basic and more or less has you in a world where everyone has a specific job and your must do your part for society in your specific sector. Even going to see Opoona's family, who he was separated from, takes all kinds of security checkpoints, and the right rank. Though the concept is pretty unique the amount of meaningful dialogue is pretty limited. The sound effects and music are decent, but nothing spectacular. Honestly, I don't put that much attention on that kind of thing as I usually listen to my own music while playing video games. But if that part is important you won't be wowed, but at least you won't be annoyed either. Overall I would say this is one of the most surprising games I've played in awhile. I went from having no interest to buying it, and becoming completely addicted. So don't just take one look at the cover and say, "that's not for me". Take it from this RPG veteran (I remember when Dragon Warrior was the hot game) and run out and buy this game. You'll be glad you did.
yes good game
* "Active Bonbon Battle" - The "Active Bonbon Battle" is an action game-style battle system. The player pitches "Energy Bonbons" at enemies by snapping the Nunchuk. The player can manipulate the Bonbon's trajectory – straight or curved. Once the target is fixed, the Bonbon will attack the target without fail. It is easy for beginners, and more skilled gamers can try multi-attacks by manipulating the bonbon orbits in a strategic way. All other commands are also controlled by Nunchuk, to allow "one-thumb control" of the game. * A "Lifestyle RPG": The Thrill of Living a New Life - On the planet Landroll, anyone who wants a job must have a license. There are many kinds of licenses such as "rescuer", "Idol" and "detective," so it is up to the player to decide what kind of job to pursue. By completing one's duty, the player can grow, deepen relationships, and unlock new areas. As such, Opoona is not only about battling, but about developing relationships with new people and contributing to society through work. * Enjoy a New Life on Landroll - "Tomodachi Complete" –Opoona can expand and deepen his relationships with residents through conversations and work. The Tomodachi level changes as Opoona's relationships evolve. When the Tomodachi level increases, Opoona will become involved with a broader range of activities including new jobs and hints to new adventures. * Shopping and Collecting – Opoona can enjoy shopping and collecting. A wide range of items can be obtained - from small toys to famous art pieces. * A Fantasy World of Modern Design - From modern, stylish structures in the residential areas to the outside domes where nature awaits – the player will see jungles, wilderness with strange rock formations, and ancient ruins. The world of Opoona is a "fusion of modern design and fantasy".
Get this game
You know you need to try it. There aren't many videos but its still a great game. The only problem is you make get a little lost in the beginning but don't worry because its not a big deal. You actually have to think when you enter a battle. You need to know who to kill first because that makes a big deal and if you die don't worry about the last time you saved. Sages come and heal you up at a save point and take a little money but no biggy. But you do lose any item that you used. Don't worry about what wasn't used. If you lose all your data you well not get mad, you well want to do it all again because that's just how awsome this is. I know I did. Don't listen to the bad. Listen to the good because the good out weights the bad. I wasn't sure if I should get this but I did and i loved it. All kind of gamers can enjoy this so its perfect for everyone.
I ordered this game a while ago, and just got to playing it the other day. It's a really unique and cute game that anyone of any age can play. In the description about, it says you need to flick the nunchuck accessory, which you don't, you actually flick the control stick in order for the character to attack. The only thing I found annoying was that I got lost quite a bit in the beginning, but I'm learning to find my way around.
everyone knows cats can fly and im pretty sure thats the point of this game because who doesnt like flying cats right so this game isnt even out yet but i give it 5 stars anyhow and woo hoo for cat lovers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First off graphics arent that important to me but the graphics in this game look pretty lame. The Main character and others look like weeble wobble toys. The Wii can support much better graphics than this and Nintendo already has a reputation for kiddy games so why not exploit the Wii's current popularity and take advantage of its graphics engine. This game design is simply lazy and I will not touch anything that looks like it.
Bad! Do Not Get!
I bought this game a while ago and it stinks!!!!! Do NOT buy this video game. There is no point with the little annoying "Bon Bons" above his head as you run around hitting people with it. It is the worst game ever!
