Review: Flower, Sun, and Rain...It's Happening Again (TGH)

TGH writes:
""Flower, Sun, and Rain" could best be described as the Groundhog's Day of video games, since you play one day over and over, until everything falls into place, and your mission is complete. The plot of the game, while seemingly basic grows into a much more developed, and tangled web as each day repeats and the game's main character, Sumio Mondo ("F.S.R."'s Bill Murray), tries to make it to the airport to stop a terrorist's attack. While it seems like it should be a very basic, and easy task to accomplish, Sumio and his partner, Catherine (a machine in his suitcase that allows him to "jack" into things, essentially hacking them), seem to get tied up in helping out different people every step of the way, and that, in turn, keeps him from stopping the attack… and forcing the day to start over again. It's a concept that stretches out over the different chapters of the game turning the island of Lospass, into a wonderful world of intrigue, and home to a host of well-developed, odd characters.

As the first few chapters of the game progress the tasks that Sumio has to perform are redundant, and grow to be a bit boring, boiling down to basic fetch quests all resulting in the same thing – an unaccomplished mission, and an exploding airplane. If you can work your way through the first few hours of the game's occasionally confusing dialog, and solve all the puzzles you're rewarded with a mostly satisfying ..." (Flower, Sun and Rain, Flower, Sun, and Rain: Unending Paradise, Nintendo DS) 3.5/5
