Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Scores 34 Out Of 40 In Famitsu And Here’s The Details

The Famitsu review is now in for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and the adorable game scored a decent 34 out of 40. As with all Famitsu reviews there’s four reviewers who give the game a different score. So for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker the game received an 8, 9, 9, and 8 which gave it a total of 34 out of 40. Here’s what each reviewer had to say about the charming game.

Reviewer 1 – 8

Captain Toad and Toadette are irresistibly cute with their uncertain walking (laughing). The stages which rotate in the 3D space as you progress have various mechanics and routes packed in, and while they aren’t very big in size, they are still produced neatly to be enjoyable. As game mechanics have many gimmicks which are familiar from the Super Mario Bros. series, anyone can play. There are over 70 stages and replaying is fun, too.

Reviewer 2 – 9

The stages are like three dimensional puzzles which you can observe from all directions. When you get the grasp of the route and gimmicks, it feels great. It is convenient that there are several ways to control the direction of the camera. Every course isn’t just about getting to the regular goal since if you aim to obtain the super diamond and a title of achievement, the difficulty increases which is excellent. Variety like hopping on a rail car and seeing the stage from Captain Toad’s viewpoint is also fun.

Reviewer 3 – 9

This is a product that everyone can play regardless of age or gender. While puzzle elements are strong, the game creates an original combination of action and mechanisms. It is fun to clear the stage after trying repeatedly by trial and error. There are boss fights and shooting scenes, so the variation is abundant. When you rotate the three dimensional world, visible things change so it is easy the get confused and feel like you are straying into another world.

Reviewer 4 – 8

Even if the size of fields is small, it is very fun to progress your way towards the goal by rotating the viewpoint and by understating gimmicks of each field. A pleasant aspect of the game is that you can play stages easily one-by-one without losing interest. Taken measures for giving help at the times when you are stumped are also welcome. There may be a feeling that the volume is insufficient, but because the price is also reasonable, I’d say it is enough.

Thanks, Maanwel

          1. Except this does seem like an add-on. No one is saying that it doesn’t justify the price, but it does in deed feels like an add-on.

            And no, I’m not a hater, I’ll be picking it up.

      1. Um because it’s something different and one of the fewest games with a high quality rating? And don’t worry i’m sure a Galaxy 3 is somewhere doown the line in a few years….unless you want Nintendo to rush their games broken to you like AC by Ubisoft?

  1. I’ll be getting this game, glad it got good reviews. It’s nothing that’s gonna blow my mind, but it will be a nice chill out game.

      1. I will get Sonic boom when the price drops. Im buying Captain Toad and smash is coming. Shit dogs? ill buy it when the price drops to $5 to $12 bucks. Fuck ubisoft. And I bought Rayman new. Good game but they aint about to play me anymore.

  2. Once I heard about it I wanted it, the mini-games in 3D World were very fun and that was a nice intro to what we can expect in this… 70 Levels sounds very good and with some DLC later on (which I have no problem paying ten bucks for) we might expect over 100 in the future if the game is popular. The price is right, I expect excellent animation, so can’t wait for this one

  3. I can understand the review and score. It’s manly a puzzle adventure that kinda looks and plays easy with several to a dozen challenging levels and huge ones if possible. Hopefully there will be DLCs to expand the game with a lot more levels and content to keep it interesting.

    1. It still looks rather fun. Yoshi and Splatoons are next. Fuck 3rd shitty party!!! Besides they are mostly the same concept anyway. Shoot first ask questions later. Reality based gaming can only go so far because you have to obey the laws of nature. I don’t give a rats ass how good the graphics are. Broken ass shit 3rd party crap.

    1. Is this going to be a thing now? -_- I understand it being a thing AT IGN because that’s were the review took place, but here too?
