@Tate23: I think the biggest problem is that Lucas M. Thomas has to rush the download reviews out on the same day the games are released. Therefore, his reviews are more like first impressions than true reviews of complete games. I still look forward to reading those impressions, but ultimately consider multiple sources.
IGN actually has quite a strong Nintendo team right now, with Audrey Drake and Richard George standing out as excellent, fair, balanced reviewers. You may not always agree with them, but they call them as they see them.
As for the game, I'm still on the fence. The music in the trailer annoyed the heck out of me. I would like a 3DS game that's a little more laid back (can't wait for Animal Crossing to hit) to play before going to bed, but if the music is that jarring then this game won't work for that.

@Moco_Loco - May I recommend Professor Layton & the Last Specter's London Life mode? It's definitely relaxing and slow-paced like AC games, provided you're not spewing profanities about how hard it is to catch a certain fish for a quest. It's also fairly lengthy, so it should kill a lot of the time between now and when AC 3DS releases.

So what exactly do you do in London Life? Is it continuous quests?

@BirdmanSo what exactly do you do in London Life? Is it continuous quests?
It's basically "go here with this item, and talk to this person" quests, or some minor variation of that. The quests change after every in-game day, though after maybe an in-game month to 6 in-game weeks the quests start repeating themselves. There's also a handful of "jobs" where you do a mini game for about 30 seconds or so before it ends and you get a small amount of wealth (in-game currency). You also accumulate wealth which you can use to buy new clothes and furniture for your avatar/his room. That's basically it. There's a dumbed-down Layton-esque story that goes along with some of the quests, but it's nowhere near as good as the stories the previous Layton games have been built around. I wouldn't call it great by any stretch of the imagination, but as a bonus to a good Professor Layton game it's solid and can easily consume a few dozen hours of video game playtime.

I was very weak and decided to buy this game against my self imposed ban from the eShop.I've got to say I'm rally enjoying this game, the controls don't seem as annoying to me, though playing with formes that can only walk makes it hard to reach high places.
I really like how my little gray planet is growing and every forme I create has different personalities based on their voices (though the formes that come preloaded seem out of place).

Well Ive completed the planet, it wont get any bigger but now im trying to unlock all the scenery parts for each section.The barebones medow and the other sections ( I wont spoil them) are all coming along nicely.I have had as much fun changing the scenery as I have making the Formees, I even made my world a winter wonderland at one point with Christmas tree, Igloos and the clouds even had snow falling. lol
Loving this game, well worth the money.

You don't actually "create" the planet. The planet is already there; you just decorate it with trees, scenery, houses, etc. that you collect.

It's not so much as decorating your planet with different colours, but you can also design the trees, houses, clouds, and other elements from stratch. I've made my houses look like mushrooms, and changed the trees and ground to look like autumn. (Been playing Mario Crossing, so my ideas came from that.)

You give your planet its own unique name, change the colour schemes including textures (like wood effects) rather than just solid colour and you can redisgn ALL of the features that you collect such as the Sun, clouds, trees, houses, hills, flowers and background creatures etc...what you cant do is resize, move and redraw the "platform" of the planet but with the scenery you add you dont really need to.So I would say that you can design your planet you just cant make your own game as such.
You have the Medow which is a standard Platform world, the Ocean which is your underwater / Islands worlds, the City which is the Racing world and finally Cloudland which is the Flying part of the game. Pretty much everything covered regarding the creating your own planet.

The guy over at the Official Nintendo Magazine seemed to really love the game -http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/32477/reviewsfreaky...He summed us his review with - "The greatest character and planet creation kit ever. If the exploration had been better this would be gold but then you'd probably be paying £30 for it."

i bought this game head on. thought i wouldnt buy eshop games but saw nintendo seal on it, so....up to this day, i still play it now and then. very fun game. simple, easy, yet i didnt unlock everything yet.
i really like the voices in there, theyre hilarious or annoyingly funny. theres a lot of stuff to do for 7 dollars. controls are sweet unless you make the biggest sized monster possible then it becomes freaking chaotic. which was funny i n a way hahaha
the streetpass thing and possible future DLC makes this game worth its pennies.

Nice game to fill your spare time. Im impressed how nice the creations look like after they have been alived by the engine. Very sweet The game is indeed a cross between art creation and animal crossing. I really like it, even if I was on the fence on the first look on this game: Strange musics, strange creations, strangeoverall game setting...But I havent been disappointed. Im not big in arts, but its very cool to create a "thing" just to see it "alive" later on.
Streetpass and severall other nice features (QR scanning, photo application) are very, VERY GREAT to have. I HOPE(!) a lot of people will buy this game also to force streetpass(ing) in Germany a bit. But I already met my first contact now. Very great feeling to know afterwards that there was one with streetpass enabled too (have seen it when I was back at home )
So: Go, buy your 3DS now and buy Freakyforms or Mario also!! Streetpass is very great
Thanks for the "creation thread" here on the forums and thanks to everybody who contributes their creations. Scanned a few already

Grammar errors? We could use the german language instead of the english one of course - do you dare? ;)

I'm hoping to get this along with Pushmo on Friday.
The creations that people have made seem really cool (and very diverse too!), it's a shame many people seem to not have "gotten" the game. It looks fun.

This is my Rabbid, I really think this game is a lot of fun. The main focus seems to be on creating formees as there is not too much to do as far as the game play goes. They have challenges but they are really simple. Maybe if they made a sequel they could make a kind of quest to play with your formees, and maybe you could level them up and get rewards like more colors and be able to use more than 20 shapes for a new formee. Or you could play live with other people and their formees. Do any of you have ideas for a sequel or what they could add?

I got Freakyforms today and I've had a blast so far.
I really like the oddball humour of the game, it works well. I like how you're constantly unlocking new items to make formees with....there's always something to work at. There's a lot more to the game then I thought.
As for the controls, I actually don't mind them. I guess I had sort of mentally prepared myself for all the stylus "twanging" I'd be doing. The quests haven't started to grate yet, but I guess they will after another while. I like the random nature of the quests though....it's like:
"I challenge you to eat dirt!"
