Diehard GameFAN: Funky Barn Review

DHGF: Basically Funky Barn is a well made game, yet it’s a mixed bag. The game plays exceptionally well, but the odd mix of cartoon visuals with the dark opening story and the ability to have your animals eaten by predators makes it hard to decide who would be the correct audience. Kids might be freaked out while older gamers might poo-poo the visuals. Farmville fans will like the no stress pace of that game over this, while Harvest Moon fans will like the deep story and role-playing elements of THAT faming sim. Funky Barn can be quite engrossing once you start playing and I can’t deny I had trouble putting the controller down at points, but it’s also not a game I’d ever pick back up now that I’ve beaten all three difficulty levels. It’s not a bad game; just not one I feel is fifty dollars worth. It would have worked better as a budget game, but as this is a launch title for the Wii U, it would have looked bad all around if the system launched with a game that had budget pricing. When this gets down to $29.99 or below though, this might be a surprise hit. (Funky Barn, Wii U) -
