    For those who don't know, this is the euro version of 2081: Eco Creatures: Save the Forest, which was in turn a translation of the Jap release 1348: Ecoris.

    Shamelessly perpetuating a stereotype, the L and R in the name got switched from Jap to English here [​IMG]

    Let's just burn down the whole planet instead of saving the crappy forest. Damn you green people.

    An OK game . . .

    5/10 from GameSpot "This real-time strategy game's cute visuals belie a mostly frustrating experience with poor controls."

    5.5/10 from IGN "It's cute, deadly, and... not that fun."

    Biology geek (aka me) says that Escheria Coli is typically harmless, unless its of a few particular strains in a large enough quantity [​IMG]



    Game looks rather dull.. if I want to save stuff, i'll save something nice looking, like flowers in Chibi Robo.

    It really looks like a Pikmin ripoff from that video. Pikmin was probably my 2nd favourite game ever, after all the Zeldas. Why isn't there an official Pikmin for DS? It would be great.

    That's pretty much what it is. It's a decent enough game... I think the reviews undersell it a bit. The controls do suck, though.
