I only started playing this today and I love it!
1. It's a cartoon but it is actually really pleasant to look at.
2. You can play as multiple characters (as you rescue them from the evil samurai guys...who are transformed forest animals.)
3. You can possess small woodland creatures (and some large..but mostly small.)
4. The world is really nice. I think I spent half an hour just looking around.
5.There are lots of things to collect, which is great for people like me who obsess over collecting everything possible.
6. The storyline is nice, so far.
The ninjas walk way too slowly. They can sprint, but you use up stamina.
BONUS: It is currently on sale at humblebundle.com (where I got it.) So, paying as little as $1.00 can get you this game plus 4-5 others. ($1 minimum to get Steam Keys.)
