Summary

Not the best in the world, but still a fun game.

The Good

Although most reviewers (the 9 year old types) will look straight at the graphics, sound, etc. and scoff, the hardcore gamers who realize that visuals aren't everything will (hopefully) see a great deal of depth in this game. It has a plot, not like the type you'll see in Final Fantasy, but one nonetheless. I enjoyed its simplicity and lack of tedious puzzles. Sure, some of them might require some thinking, but its not anything to worry about. If you're looking for a top-down game thats fun, try this game.

The Bad

Unfortunately, the cartoonish look to the game will probably turn most gamers away. The sound is nothing to brag about, but thats why there are speakers, right? The plot is virtually non-existent, and some "fattening up" might have been needed for a good sequel.

The Bottom Line

It's hard to describe any game to another, seeing as how all of our opinions and likes/dislikes tend to differ. For the sake of simplicity, I'll just say this: "If you want a simple game thats fun and amusing, try GOT. If you're looking for the next Zelda or Final Fantasy, look away. This is a classic."
