Hatsune Miku – The Planet Of Wonder And Fragments Of Wishes REVIEW

Hatsune Miku: The Planet Of Wonder And Fragments Of Wishes is a collection of mini-games, but it starts off deceptively. It has a fairly long introductory session, featuring tons of dialog (which can get boring) and a little exploration of the world around you, complete with some really impressive retro visuals. The game initially resembled a JRPG/adventure game from the SNES era. One that took a long time to let me play its mini-games. Were they worth the wait? To be honest, some of them were quite good.

These were standard mini-games lasting a few seconds that were simplistic on the level of Mario Party , with high-scoring gameplay and a wide variety of art styles. The controls were responsive, load times were minute, and some of them were actually pretty neat and addictive, namely platform jumping. However, impatient players may have problems with these games. As addictive as some of them are, there are so many one-button platform jumps that a person can participate in before they get bored.

Another problem was the soundtrack, which in itself wasn’t bad, but considering the fact that this is a Hatsune Miku game, you expect a lot more from it, especially when playing the minigame.

The third and biggest problem with The Planet Of Wonder And Fragments Of Wishes is that this collection of mini-games with many different skins and playable characters… is limited to only one player. Why? Just why? This game is simply designed to be played collectively.

We probably all expected more from this game. Our past experiences with Hatsune Miku games have been extremely positive, but The Planet Of Wonder And Fragments Of Wishes is unfortunately too shallow and brief. While some of the mini-games were indeed fun to play, there’s not much fun to be had here, and you can’t even play them in co-op.
