GameSetWatch names Chibi-Robo one of 2007's Top 5 Overlooked Games


Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol, the environmentally-conscious (though perhaps not produced under such auspices!) DS sequel to skip's GameCube domestic adventure, has been listed as one of five notable games that didn't get the attention they deserved this year.

GameSetWatch's Brandon Boyer said that the game "managed to pack big charm into its diminutive body, with a mostly non-combative and environmentally-minded ethos typical of the lineage of the staff at developer Skip." With such a big trend towards going "green" this year, a green-themed game should have been a huge hit, right? Well, it might have been, had people been able to find it. Unfortunately, it was exiled to Wally World.

We do like to see DS games making best-of lists, even if it's because of their relative invisibility. Maybe some added attention will inspire someone to pick it up used or even maybe go to Wal-Mart.
