@Atwa: My buddy made them last night. It's a good idea and I'm going to try it myself soon.

Posted by dvorak

There was a 3DS version of MGS3, so I'd say that any game could be as fully voiced as they want.

Posted by Gelf513

There are plenty of 3DS games that are fully voiced: Kid Icarus Uprising, Resident Evil Revelations, Code of Princess, Kingdom Hearts 3D, Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor Overclocked et al. I know this also came out on the DS so maybe it was a limitation for that, though there are still plenty of DS games with a decent amount of voice work. Maybe it was a time/money thing, maybe all the actors weren;t available to record when they needed it. W/e the reason, it's disappointing.

Heard from other outlets that it's pretty awesome...as a fan I'll probably get it when it's $20!

Please tell me it's this.

Yep!

Oh. My. Glob.

@TheCheese33: Don't need to preach to me man. I bought DD:N on a whim and really enjoyed it for what it was but the soundtrack really stands out. Didn't play the Alien game though but it looked good from the QL.

What happened to WayForward?

I mean, A Boy And His Blob was kind of a masterpiece of reboots, and we've all been so excited since.

This year, they released Double Dragon Neon, Silent Hill: Book of Memories, and now Adventure Time. What happened over there that brought them so much lower than they were?

Judging by this list, A Boy and his Blob is an exception.

Aliens: Infestation is excellent. Same with Mighty Switch Force.

WayForward is simply a developer that release a whole lot of games, both licensed and original. For every good game, there's bound to be a few bad ones.

Also, I actually liked Double Dragon Neon. Don't understand the hate for it, especially since it has one of the best OSTs of the year.

Don't know if "hardware limitations" can justify the game not being fully voiced, Virtue's Last Reward was almost fully voiced and that was a straight up 25+ hour visual novel. Granted there's more under the hood of this game taking up precious space, but it is my belief that they didn't place as many voices in because they didn't want to spend the extra bucks on the VA.

Came to say this.Kid Icarus Uprising was also fully voiced and that game lasts for a good while. That game's still pretty impressive...

Telltale should make an Adventure Time adventure game.

@verysexypotato: I guess that's the most appropriate version we could hope for. At least until someone mashes it up with "Power".

Bravest Warriors is better than Adventure Time. And Regular Show is better than both of them. Fight me, motherfuckers.

Haven't seen Bravest Warriors, so can't say anything about that. But Regular Show got nothing, NOTHING on Adventure Time.

@Toug @Bigbombomb

What have we done...

Posted by Dan_CiTi

Yeah sounds about right, pretty cool and well made, but kind of shallow in some pretty disappointing ways. Hopefully their can be a Wii U game that's more fully featured and is like A Link to the Past.

I never understood the draw of this show. I guess if I was growing up now I would understand.

Considering I didn't grow up now and other fans of the show didn't either, that's not the reason why you don't understand. You just don't, but that's okay.

@KJAZZ: It's not so much the 3DS's limitations as it is that the game is also out for the Original DS

Posted by Levio

Hopefully it gets a good sequel.

Posted by Deusx

Great review Alex seriously spot on. I am very VERY excited for this game so hearing the good and the bad is only reassuring that even with those flaws I will be enjoying the experience just as you did. Keep up the good work man!

I wouldn't be worried; they've been releasing potboilers like those for a while. Pays the bills while they work on more interesting projects, I would guess.

Seriously, didn't guy make review avatars months ago that could replace the blank space for Patrick and the one random one for Alex? Maybe it's too late now that the re-design is 'just around the corner' but it seems like such a waste. Alex reviews more than anyone else these days.

Posted by thebipsnbeeps

It's an intriguing property for a video game. I hope this won't be it for Adventure Time. I feel like they're can be a totally competent one that doesn't have to appeal to a younger crowd or whatever, especially since we're talking about Wayforward here. Just make it like Shantae!

WayForward is kind of bad at making games, aren't they?

I want to check out adventure time, unfortunately I gave up smoking weed when I became a father

Posted by Bigbombomb

@Toug: Oh yeah? Check this out!

Great review, Alex. I see that it also came out on the ol' DS, so I might check it out.

I always knew Alex was the secret best member of the crew!

Glad to hear the game is not shit. It will surely make a lot of kids happy this Christmas...until you know...they beat it in like 5 hours.

Posted by amlabella

Well said Alex, I agree completely after playing through most of it yesterday. Competent game with some clever writing, but it's far too simple and the lack of voice acting is disappointing. I'd love to see some kind of downloadable Adventure Time game for XBLA/PSN with a bigger budget and not such a strong focus on the "young player." Adventure Time is a show with a surprisingly wide age range for its audience, so it'd be nice to see a game that reflects that - deeper gameplay systems, more variety, etc.

@iAmJohn: I mostly agree with you, so, um... Should we fuck or something?

Why don't you just admit that you like all of these shows and stop trying to get attention.

Where's the fun in that?

Posted by Camosid

This is the most accurate review. I guess I felt like it nailed the show better, but yes the issue was Wayfoward games are short. They needed to make the game friendly to kids so they made a very low difficulty ramp. So when it finally got interesting it was over, but at least it nailed everything else.

Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials

When I saw this review in the RSS, I said to myself "Alex, 3 stars".

Damn I'm good.

I only saw one episode of Bravest Warriors, and i really liked it. Regular Show is really the best, tho. So, yeah, no fighting tonight.
