GameBoyz writes: "While Flower, Sun, and Rain has a cool premise and story, the game falls short on the delivery. The shortcomings of the Nintendo DS medium are quite apparent with a blocky and somewhat fuzzy look throughout the game. For those real fans of the genre the game holds a certain richness and almost addictive feel. That being said more casual gamers will probably steer clear of this title while others may enjoy it in a cultish sort of way; it's a real coin toss here. In the end I think gamers just need to try Flower, Sun, and Rain before passing judgment as they will either be pleasantly surprised or horribly disappointed and they need to find this out for themselves".
