Okay this review is coming at a weird time. The 3ds hasn't been relevant for a couple of years but this coronavirus lockdown caused me to pick mine up again out of boredom and decide to buy a new game and this game is absolutely perfect for the lockdown! You play a fun quest and get to cast all the characters as Miis of your choice, meaning you can go on your adventure with all the friends you can't see at the moment, or you can choose funny miis like casting the grinch as a beautiful young woman (you can get miis from online to use as well as from your own library). So far I absolutely love the game, and it's so funny watching my friends' miis interact in quirky ways and wear silly costumes as mages or thieves. I think this game would suit children very well too as it is very family friendly and is not especially challenging, the battles remind me a lot of pokemon so I would imagine pokemon fans would enjoy this a lot.
You can try a demo on the 3DS store, which I would recommend if you’re unsure, but speaking as someone who doesn’t really care for complex RPGs, this was right up my street. The game is pretty simple at its core, with you only controlling one character in your squad, but it works very well. The game lasts a long time too, but hasn’t outstayed it’s welcome. The best feature is how you completely choose the cast from Miis, including the ones you have in Tomadachi Life, and this of character can be as silly or as straight played as you like. My team of heroes was made up of a mix of my friends, fictional characters from popular culture and and a few I made up, and this mad rag tag team just made this game so much for funnier than I thought possible. One complaint, not sure if it’s because it’s a super powerful game, or because my 3DS is a bit old, but the game really drains the batteries much more than any other game I’ve owned. I can only play for about an hour because my console needs a recharge.
Very over priced, arrived well within the estimated delivery but the packaging was in a foreign language. As for game play, there's not much to be said. You just sit back and watch the characters through the story unlike Tomodatchi Life where there is plenty to do. However the game does have its perks such as the ability to use your Miis as the characters within the game. I currently have John Simms incarnation of the Master as the Dark Lord which is a funny concept. Overall, despite the price and lack of user interaction, I'm enjoying it so far
Miitopia is a fun, humorous, and great role-playing game. You can create yourself and your own companions, and a whole cast of characters! You can also import your Miis from Tomodachi Life.
Played through the whole game in about 40 hours. There's also post-game activities after the final boss! You can continue gaining levels, creating characters, exploring new places, and trying to get all the achievements. But Miitopia was so entertaining that I've reset all my save data so my younger brother could play through the story as well. It's a shame that this game doesn't have multiple save slots, which would have been very useful!
This game has quite a unique concept, but in my opinion, it could be executed a little better. The interactions between the characters in the game can be amusing at the start of the game, although the battle game-play as well as the interactions between characters gets a little bit repetitive. It's a perfect game if you are happy to casually play it for a little while at a time, although if you are looking for a game to sit down and play for a long length of time, maybe an hour or more, you'll probably find yourself doing the same or similar thing, leaving you fairly bored fairly quickly. I feel as this game would be more enjoyable as something to play with friends around, putting them and yourself in the game, as some of the things the characters say could make for good laughs with your friends.
Sometimes you just want a break from the kids, am I right? This game kept one of the younger kids occupied for a while and was a friendly, non-violent, non political, without an agenda type game, which is harder and harder to find these days.
The premise of the game is really fun! The gameplay is fairly repetitive, but it didn't get boring for me until quite some time in. There's a lot of different features to the game. From the outfits, relationships, story and battling.
Personally, I really enjoy the customisability the game offers. You can choose pretty much every character that appears in the adventure. You can take Miis from a variety of methods too, to make it easier to add friends/celebrities/etc. I also enjoy the relationships within the game. They add fun variety to it, and the abilities that come with each stage of the relationship are fun to discover. I find the fighting between pairs kind of tedious, though, but it doesn't happen often unless its story scripted.
After a certain point, it does get very repetitive and begins to drag on. It turns from exploring new areas to grinding and it takes away some of that original motivation and curiosity that kept me going. But you can still push through it.
Overall, I've really enjoyed this game. It's been good fun, and I feel like I'll come back to it a lot.
