Yeppers. Posted an impressions article earlier today, you can find a link to my site in my signature.
please, you've already been warned about redirecting people to your site -- either discuss things here at NL or not at all. -- TBD

apparently it's developed by SKIP (Chibi-Robo, art style series, Captain Rainbow, Giftpia), so I downloaded it.

Got to spend a good amount of time with it last night, finally. (Earlier in the week I just got to play it in spurts.)

Review is done, and should be posted soon. It might be worth waiting for, if you're on the fence.

Cool. I already downloaded it but, I'd still like to read the review. Can you by chance post the credits here? It's definitely Skip right?

So you've never read the review of a game that you already own before? Sometimes I want to know how others think of the game too. I haven't played it yet though. Will start on Dec. 5th.

Nope, i read a review just to know the mechanics of the game, how many save files, controls, etc... if i already own the game, what is the point of read it? i just try it for myself. idc about score cuz that is just the opinion of the reviewer.

If that's all you wait for reviews to find out, you can actually just read the game's manual on the Wii Shop Channel for free, and not have to wait at all. Remember that the purpose of reviews at all is to give the reviewer a chance to express his or her opinion. That's not a secondary outcome; it's the whole point. The opinion is far more than just a score at the bottom of a page!

I know, thas why i said the score is just the reviewer opinion, but ppl these days buy games just cuz it gets a good score even if is not his kind of game.

And conversely, people ignore games that they may have ended up enjoying solely because they get bad scores from reviewers that don't understand or appreciate what the game has going for it. In fact that's exactly what happened with the excellent Chibi Robo, and since Snowpack Park is from the same developer and borrows a lot of the same gameplay elements I'm afraid that might happen to it as well.

Hey C_B, is there any significance to that bridge where it says the maximum limit is (I believe) 1,1000 lbs? I'm afraid to check it out... Oh, and the next answer might be a spoiler for those who haven't encountered this yet.

Does anyone know what to do once you've got the 47 penguins? I'm trying to break through that wall that has the water in front of it, but I think you need 50 penguins, and there aren't anymore. I've tried hitting the wall with snowballs, but they just break.

That's exactly where I'm at. That's why I was asking about the bridge. And I didn't know you could make snowballs yet.

@sadly: Bring a lot of penguins over to the bridge where the maximum weight is 1,100 lbs. I just made lots of progress today because of it - finally!

I'm really bummed no ones been talking about this more. This is my ideal game right here! Birds and Skip Gameplay. Though I have never played any of their games besides Art Style, I REALLY want to and Captain Rainbow hasn't been released here, or the Wii version of Chibi Robo.

Kachou on!
