Let me explain a bit further:
*Recruiting Yokai is RNG. You can give them food to boost your chance but the recruitment rate is always low and there are limited spots for Yokai to appear so if that time you didn't get it, you have to run around a lot to find it again. Many of the side quests rely on the recruiting being possible and easy, but it often is not, is time consuming, and not easy to get more attempts at.
*Crank-a-kal being limited to X times a day, is an outdated feature, especially when it requires items to use to start with.
*The exp system is horribly imbalanced. The exp needed for a level vs the exp given per battle is very off because you can be killing B rank Yokai at level 50 and that isn't even enough for a level for a level 13 Yokai. The Exp Orbs are flawed in this way too, they don't give enough EXP to be worth anything. The most commonly found are Medium Exporbs, and they aren't worth enough. You are better off sticking with your 6 high level Yokai than trying to level up an A or S rank to join you, as you won't need them anyway.
*I don't understand the point of the bike. I don't know if it actually makes you any faster despite being given to you as if it should.
*Fishing and bug-catching are randomised wheels with winning sections that require no skill.
*The stamina system is unnecessary as a concept. They literally give you items for infinite stamina. There is no reason why there should be a stamina limit in this specific type of game.
*No places are labelled, I literally didn't know where Jungle Hunter was for 90% of the game and it was on the same map section as your house down at the bottom right where you don't have any reason to go otherwise.
The mechanics for a game exist here, they're just not good or worthwhile. The music is probably the best feature of the game because it gets stuck in my head. Some parts are also retconned by Yokai Watch 2.
The product itself was perfectly fine - functional, arrived safely and easily etc.. The game itself is just mediocre. I'd suggest starting at a later point in the series if you are looking to get into it, for a starting point, this one is not great.
The game has a good main storyline and fun little side quests to complete. The characters are interesting, I love Japan so it's good to see bits and pieces from Japanese folklore. Quite similar to Pokemon as mentioned in other reviews - if you're a fan of Pokemon then you'll enjoy this game - hoping that this will prove popular enough to get sequels
