Little King's Story (Wii)

 

UK REVIEW--First impressions can be misleading, and this is very much the case with Little King's Story. At first glance it looks simplistic, but this is actually a mature, fresh, and challenging game. There are references to everything from Nietzsche...

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.

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...

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.

is one of those games

Little King's Story is the first truly remarkable, original RPG to hit the Wii. Don't let the kiddy veneer fool you, it's pure win!

Little King's Story

 

A mind-controlling boy king turns other people into his toys. Just play nice with them.

One frustrating point in combat is targeting. You launch units by pressing a button while facing your king along your chosen trajectory. While it's funny to chuck your guys into walls when casually exploring, missing a boss during a narrow attack...

The Consensus: Little King's Story Review

 

Some great ideas mixed with terrible design decisions.

The grind is strangely addictive thanks to a constant stream of rewards; the cut-scenes are insane and beautiful

Poor save system; brutally difficult boss fights; much of the game feels like trial and error rather than skill

Little King's Story is a game that I'm glad I played through to completion, but I sometimes wonder if I would have if it wasn't my job. I appreciated the places the story took me in the end, but the final series of boss fights not only felt forced into...

Not only kingdom building

Deep, challenging adventure with lots of replay value; beautiful art style; surprisingly mature sense of humour

Lots of backtracking and grinding; sound effects annoying

Buildings aside, I certainly felt attached to my kingdom’s many citizens. Cing has put a great effort into making your subjects endearing and fun. The way they scramble to see you as you pass and shout ‘Hail!’ in their adorably squeaky voices is...
