Examining early efforts and seeing all of the grammatical errors, poor sentences and abundance of empty words makes one cringe and look away quickly. In a way, I imagine Suda 51 and the rest of his team at Grasshopper Manufacture must feel the same way about the DS release of Flower, Sun and Rain. This title, a remake of the PS2 game only released in Japan, was Grasshopper's second game, and was it ever a sophomore slump. While I'm sure the idea was to make the game "quirky," the obtuse story, terrible gameplay mechanics and ugly visuals all contribute to it being, quite simply, bad. Even hardcore Suda fans are going to have a tough time finding the appeal of this one."
