This game is strongly recommend for those who enjoy RPG GAMES!!!!!!!!!! It's very AWESOME. Strongly recommend you buy this game. It's well worth the money, and it's two player and the two player thing is in story mode so you and your friends can play in story mode together. Anyway, I liked how the storyline was, probably my favorite part. You get wrapped up in it with Jeena and Rallen, and their little afair. I thought at the end they'd kiss but I guess that may be part reason is rated E10+ :P This game, next to Ssbb (Super smash bros brawl) probably my favorite wii game so far. I very much hope they come out with a new one. Me and my friend very much enjoyed this game. And I've had my wii for 2 years so lol. I hope if you brought it you enjoy it cause it's just awesome. So, that's pretty much it. Disney is a kids company, but im a teen and I very much enjoyed it. Hope you buy it and enjoy. :)
Spectrobes or Pokemon?
The biggest question Spectrobes 'Pokemon or Originality". In my personal opinion it is both. It has its own story and concept. Yet it has its own feeling. Whats not like pokemon is that you can go to a spectrobes convention and not be called a dork. It has a great story, cutscenes, graphics, and controls compared the other spectrobes games. What makes spectrobes so much like pokemon is evolution and its addiction. But another thing people over look is that they are both on DS. Thats why this one is way better it is fun, it does not make you think about it every second. And it is on the WII. What I love about these big-screen platform games is that it has the best graphics. This is what made me buy this game it has a lot better graphics than the first. I love the simple controls. Also I love how it is not too hard but yet not too easy like star wars force unleashed. If you love spectrobes, fighting games, RPGs, and some other related thing (not pokemon) you'll love tis game.
Spectrobes comes to the Wii!
Okay, so if you're thinking of getting this game, you definitely should. Lets start with the positives: The fossil finding & excavating is top notch. A good percent of this game is wii-mote friendly, so if that's what you like, congratulations. The graphics are excellent; in both cutscenes and in dialog. The sound was enjoyable, due to some great planet themes. The game has had me busy for a while now, so the length no doubt is excellent. The storyline keeps me interested, so were good there. Now for the not-so-good: The controls were a little clunky, like when you had to flick the wii-mote vertically, it sometimes confuses it as a horizontal flick, but rarely. You couldn't really customize your character, but you could change from Rallen to Jeena. Also, you can choose your weapon during battle, whenever you want. All in all, this game is a great buy if you liked the spectrobes for the DS. Even if didn't, it's still a good decision. Enjoy!
What I know
I did some reaserch and found out all I could on this game and here's what I found out (1) There is a two player co-op mode where a seconed player may drop-in and play as a spectrobe (2) The inubator room is much more interactive then previous games ex. you can train with your spectrobes, whatch them play, or even see them all in a parade (3) The controls are esay to pick up and play: By using the nunchuck you walk around as your charecter of choice, the Z button allows you to change your Spectobe during battle, the Z button also unleashes your special attack, the A button allows you to attack as your charecter, by swing the wii remote away from you tells the spectrobe where to attack, swinging it tword you signals the spectrobe to come back to you. I hope this was informative if not I'm sorry.
THE BEST GAME EVER!!!!! HEAVEN!!!!
Before I got this game, I was a bit nervous because I read the reviews about it and there were good comments about it, yet also bad comments about it. But when I GOT the game from GameStop, I was hooked...and I still am (because I'm still playing.) I love everything about this game and there are no flaws whatsoever. The only minor tweak is that it needs a bit more specific graphics, to make it look more realistic. Though, it's just spot on great. Fantastic. For those of you customers out there, get this game. Please. I don't understand how the people that commented negatively about it completely skimmed the main point of Spectrobes over their heads. It probably means they just don't have pure imagination. To prove to you that this RPG is wonderful, here's my synopsis for it: The story starts off at a scene where the station of NPP (Nanairo Planetary Patrol) works their best on an average day, that ends up not so average after the station detects a dangerous sonar emanating from outerspace. The two best officers of the NPP, (Rallen and Jeena) talented troops, are called by their boss to check out the situation. They head off into space along with their cute creature pet, Komainu, to scan the area. Soon after, however, their ship gets sucked into a dark warp that leads to a whole other galaxy, not too unfamiliar though. Rallen and Jeena get confused and lost as their hope fades, but does not dissapear. They visit their first planet all due to a distress call that asks of help from a village of innocent people, attacked by an evil (incredibly evil) force of darkness known as the Krawl...arch nemesis of the NPP. The Krawl is managed by their evil (incredibly evil) leader, Krux, who's mysterious in the beginning of the plot. Things all start to connect like a puzzle for Rallen and Jeena as a fascinating story of Spectrobes is thoroughly explained to them all thanks to a worthy and loyal ally amongst their first visited planet. Together, the two listen as they hear about the underestimated power of Spectrobes, a good force other than the evil that is of creatures capable of beyond abilities stronger than ever that sacrifice their true essence to assist Rallen and Jeena in battle. Spectrobes are what help them throughout every single part of the game, and the two learn how to control the Spectrobes all thanks to their CosmoLinks, the most helpful tool clicked onto their armor ever. It is the main source that generates power for you to summon a Spectrobe in the first place (obviously I'm giving a hint that Komainu, Rallen and Jeena's adorable pet bear-dog or whatever, is a Spectrobe.)
In the CosmoLink, you are able to check your army of Spectrobes, learn much about them, swap weapons, read data about what stuff you collect throughout gameplay, and can see the records of who invented the game to begin with! So when you start becoming a true hero, and you can either navigate maneuvers from Rallen to Jeena if you wish to change characters and pick which, you invest and discover more about the clues calling out from the spirit of the game. What I love is that you can dig up the Spectrobe creatures from the ground and can then, once sent to your lab when you play, can be excavated and awaken by music to bring a new Spectrobe back to life. They're very ancient! However, many reviewers on GameStop online think that the game is way similar to Pokemon. It is not 100% similar, but it does have it's alikes. The parts in the game where you can evolve your Spectrobe from a Child, to Adult, to Evolved is what is similar to Pokemon for Basic, Stage 1, and Stage 2. Yet, you DIG up your little monsters from the ground than other capturing pokemon in your pokeball for training. That's what's really cool. In the game of Spectrobes Origins, you can evolve your creature, train it once it's an Adult and Evolved, interact sweetly with it, explore with it to other planets or the current landscape you're visiting, and much more. Child Spectrobes cannot battle. They have to be Adult or Evolved...and then (something alike with pokemon also) you have each individual Spectrobe represent an element, ranging from Fire, Water, Plants, Earth, Sky, and Water. Another cool feature to add into this review is that when you excavate Spectrobes, you get to use a variety of tools that really bring the graphics to it's best point. The only part of the graphics that kind of drop is when it comes to the character features, or when they have the close up videos view in on Rallen and Jeena talking to each other or with other second main characters. Additionally, I love how you can wake up Spectrobes with music on the Wii that you have to mimic tunes of the melody, and if correct, your Spectrobe wakes up and comes to life after who knows how long! Once again, they're ancient. The only thing that kind of made me sad is when you accidentally eliminate a Spectrobe if not properly excavating and damage the fossil that contains a Spectrobe spirit. Once the health bar of a fossil Spectrobe is out, they break apart and are gone forever, unless you can dig the same one up again from the ground in the game. Though, everything was A-MAZING! Truly. The best game Disney ever came up with, and I really hope they have a sequel to the Wii version. I never tried out the DS version, but in my honest opinion I think you'll get a better experience of the game with the Wii, (because you know...with the motion and 3D affects in all) even though they have the 3DS...I just still think the Wii is the console to go with. Customers, can you at least consider buying it? Trust me, it's really really good! The game has it's really good effects, the intense background music when you battle enemis plays on and it excited you to fight the Krawl. Komainu is my favorite character of the game, because he's basically the main Spectrobe shown amongst the first scenes of the game until you summon another Child Spectrobe. I also enjoy evolving Spectrobes into Adults...although I haven't evolved an Adult into it's Evolved stage yet, which I can't wait! I LOVE SPECTROBES! *Woot Woot!*
As a spectrobes fan, I am dissapointed.
This was nothing like the original spectrobes, which I was pretty dissapointed about. When me and my friend saw a teaser for this about 2 and half years ago, we were all like YAY ANOTHER SEQUEL!!! The main reason I bought my Wii was to play this game, but it wasn't very good. First of all, you can only use one spectrobe at a time, and they only have like one special power. And you can't do a super team attack because you've only got one. Very stupid! Plus the minerals just pop out of the ground! You don't get any fun out of that. And when you find a fossil, a block of the ground comes up, and you have to get the fossil out- INSIDE YOUR SHIP!!! WHAT HAPPENED TO DRILLING STUFF OUT OF THE GROUND!!! THAT WAS LIKE THE ONLY THING ABOUT SPECTROBES AND THEY TOOK IT AWAY! Anyways it actually had decent graphics, especially compared to the previous spectrobes titles, but that just won't save this game.
I wanted to change my rating on the game over all, but since I can't change that alone (or at least to the extent I know), I'm changing the rating to a nine due to the easy controls, game play, easy to follow and vivid storyline, voice acting, characters, and the variety of spectrobes. Most likely there is a sequel on the way (since Krux is somehow still alive) and new spectrobes and old wil come along. When (if) a sequel does come out, I'm definitely buying! I mean, their completely keeping us in the shadows for this! I hope at this years E3 they show a spectrobes game or sometime in the future because I'm dying to find new spectrobes, minerals, and weapons! And it needs to be on the Wii again! Plus we need to see you know what with Rallen and Jeena. Also, there are fans eho have ideas for spectrobes and sequels to it. Anyway, just wanted to change my rating since this game is one of the best I have!
Worth The Money
This is a Great example of what a Rpg game can be i enjoyed this game and all the interactive things you do in this game the Battling was kinda repetitive (as like most rpgs) but didn't bore me due to the fast past action and the fact the enemies literally get stronger and require more attention as u progress i recommend this game to people who like Rpgs and don't like a challenge but not something to Hard (no one likes those) the Graphics aren't the best But what Wii game offers that. Sounds aren't really nothing to speak about. The main thing is the game play itself this is a Great Game And Worth The Money.
I personally love the spectrobes games on the DS. Though they could've been a little better. Now though I heard about this game, watched some videos and saw some pictures and it looks so AMAZING. I haven't found anything about the storyline though. I'd like to find that out. I haven't paid attention to the controls during videos because I HAD to post my review. It looks great. Thanks to the inventors of spectrobes
Good game but...
This game is simply pokemon in a way where you find artifacts(pokemon), excavate/awake them(catch them), and evolve them and BAM! next best thing to pokemon, Spectrobe. The Sound was well lets just say ok after playing it for 6 hours you might ignore it or you might find it annoying it depends on how literal about a game you are. The gameplay is pretty good its just for some missions they dont take you to the place you have to go you have to actually walk there (which gets a little boring) but for most missions they take you back to the place for a cut-scene. This game is famous for cut-scenes because it seems everytime you walk to your objective you happen to go into one or when you complete your mission/quest you go into one a little annoying for me. I like the fact you find fossils and excavate them to get your item/spectrobe its different but fun and the wii remote is very useful in that. The battle system is enjoyable also just one thing that I find dissatisfying to say the least is sometimes your spectrobes go to attack they attack once or do a combo but when they go to attack by themselves they dont hit anything so you happen to always tell your spectrobe to attack in order to win. Another thing is that when searching the field for minerals you always happen to find a black mineral where you pick it up and get 10exp for your spectrobe but then you always go into a battle after picking it up, why couldn't it be similar to pokemon to where you are walking then happen to get into a fight? idk just seems pointless to me, but there are times where you randomly go into battle but its usually when walking to your mission. The battling also gets repetitive to a point where you just dont want to fight/play anymore because its the same everytime: you get a fight then tell spectrobe to attack then you attack and then battle over then do it again. At first this was fun but i mean after the sixth hour it just gets repetitive. Getting new weapons and shields and items is fun also. But most of the weapons are useless especially the first lance. So it makes you want to stick to your best weapons: Spectrobes and the sword. I have only played tops 10 hours of this game so im not to far in it I guess you could say it has a really good length to it. Just as a conclusion one word that comes to mind to describe this game is: Repetitive. Still fun to evolve/level your spectrobes and level the main character also. You also get to feed your Spectrobes to evolve them faster. As in pokemon, Spectrobes have 5 basic characteristics: Fire, water, plant, earth, wind where Fire beats plant water beats fire ect. But simply a childish RPG can describe this still if you liked pokemon you will love this and if you like rpg games and want one really bad for wii then get this id recommend this.
