    Can anyone explain this game to me in the context of other games? Im not really sure what to expect.

    I really wish there was a demo.

    @el_pollo_diablo I'd suggest watching a trailer or gameplay video to get a sense of it. I don't think I've played another game that I'd think of as similar to it, although I'm sure someone here can help in that department.

    You basically have a village full of minions and you can take a small number out with you at a time to dig holes, build bridges, kill monsters, etc. You can assign them jobs to make them better at certain aspects, eg. grunts are good at fighting and not much else. Your own character can join in fighting but his relatively low health means ordering your minions to charge makes up the bulk of an assault. The further you explore and the more money you get, the more you can expand the village and make everyone wear swimsuits.

    There's also a story to follow in between exploring, involving some people nicking your castle and running off with all the princesses.

    Does that make sense?

    Edit: Can't believe I typed all that on my iPod...

    Can anyone comment on the framerate for the Euro version. Is it rubbish?

    @boxoctosis I'm only 3 hours in but I've not had any problems yet. Will let you know if I experience any issues.

    Quite interested in this game I must say. Seems rather expensive though...

    FCUTA!

    @santashi

    Thanks for the summary. ESPECIALLY given the hour or so it took you to type it all up.

    I'm tempted by this, more out of curiosity than out of any sort of need to have a new game to play on - after all I have in the past week acquired Little Big Planet Vita, two new Pinball Arcade tables, and Tokyo Jungle...

    I'm sure I'll buckle in a month or so.

    Is this a remake / improved port of the Wii game or an entirely new game?

    @Afiddes Everything is better when portable! This may not be strictly true. :D

    Had a hard time putting the Vita down last night. I've got a princess now though, hurrah.

    Never played the original, but I'm really impressed so far. Think the pacing has been exellent so far bringing in new elements and I like the humour. It really is a mixture of quite a few games, but it does feel original.
    Can see a lot of hours going into this.

    I do hope EG do a review of this. Very tempted but I really can't justify it.

    i am really enjoying this game

    i think it is a proper sequel (but i never played the wii-game)

    i can command up to 17 minions now and walking through the town with everyone results in some slowdowns, but nothing really serious or gamebreaking

    I was throwing a bunch of minions at some debris when one of them went off course and started screaming 'BAAAASSSTTTAAARRRDDD' at the waves. I clearly employ complete weirdos....

    Er, it is a great game (in my opinion at least ;) ) but it's not worth getting yourself into financial problems over. The game's not going anywhere. :)

    Er... food for a month? :D
    Plus, if you wait a while, you'll get it for less than the current asking price. It's the right thing to do and you can use it to become stronger. Get thee to the self-imposed ban on buying more games thread my man!

    This will be reduced fairly quickly, I'd imagine. Was tempted to get it but the Metro review put me off a little, so I'm happy to wait for it to drop in price.

    If Eurogamer was your only source of gaming news, you wouldn't even know this game is already out and currently enjoying a respectable metascore of 78.

    Why the blackout EG?

    I love the more quirky bosses in this. I only wish you could replay them all as they make fun mini games. Unless you can at some point and I just haven't unlocked it yet. :p
