Hatsune Miku - The Planet of Wonder and Fragments of Wishes Reviews
There's no sense of progression or improvement on offer, the story is a bore, you're made to walk circles around a tiny village and, even at the relative budget price of £20 / $28 it feels like Crypton Future Media is asking way too much. If you've got a very young child to entertain, maybe this will do the job for an hour or two. Otherwise, it's hard to recommend something so slight, unchallenging, and unwilling to engage with what makes its star such a joy to be around in the first place.
Hatsune Miku: The Planet of Wonder and Fragments of Wishes is not the finest Hatsune Miku “spin-off”, but it is a delight in its own right. It might only offer a small library of minigames, but they all play nicely, and the bubbly charm behind every second of the experience is infectious. I am intrigued by the future and what Crypton could do now that they have the assets to start delivering story experiences. More than anything else, however, this is a Miku game, and in a very simple and pure sense, spending time with it makes me happy.
My past experience with Hatsune Miku games has been shockingly positive, but The Planet Of Wonder And Fragments Of Wishes is just too shallow and brief to be considered a worthy purchase, even for fans of the vocaloid diva. Even though some its minigames were indeed fun to play, there’s not a lot to enjoy in this package, and you can’t even play them with a friend. Its boring story, dialogue, and mediocre soundtrack (again, a shocking thing considering the source material) weren’t enough to make up for the overall lack of content.
