Wow, why did this game do so great in America and so poorly in Europe. I thought Europe normally ate games like this up. It did have a big marketing budget in the US though.

I really like the game, but I just can't get over how AWFUL the controls are. I don't understand how the hell they settled on this atrocious control scheme. And the camera re-centering only makes the controls WORSE, by constantly making you miss click on something when camera decides to move on you. SO FRUSTRATING! Any control scheme would have been better than the one they settled on.

I bought this and loved it for an hour. Havn't touched it in weeks now. The controls just get too tedious to deal with, and it just plain isn't interesting after you do 20 or so levels.

In the Official Nintendo Magazine in Italy they gave it 9, and said that sometimes the controls are not so good and that the systam which gave you more point for the great chains of objects is not so accurate, but that the idea, the realization and the last appeal is great! There are over 200 levels and you must complete them multiple times for all the medals, and there secret stuff like new levels or characters. Definitly big!
