Xbox 360 game review: The Undergarden

First off I have to say this is a visually awesome game. You are a tiny little creature who goes through the various parts of the Undergarden using pollen you collect to make all the flowers and plants grow and bloom. But that is just a start. With each part of the Undergarden you explore you will be looking for special flowers to make bloom, you need to gather together the little musicians, who help you make things grow and you need to find the hidden crystal. Sounds easy right? And you would be right in the first cave you explore but as the game goes on it gets harder and harder. From storng winds that carry you away from what you are looking for to floating bubbles and creatures that look like amebas who steal all your pollen to this heavy black misty fog that you need to get through things get tougher and tougher as you go.

Another game we picked up on a free offer I have managed to get through six of the caves so far. I haven’t gotten 100% in each cave because finding the special flowers isn’t as easy as you think, and I am still not sure what exactly we are supposed to do with the musicians. But all in all this is a family friendly game. There is no shooting, no killing, etc. It is just you as a nature sprite trying to heal and grow the Undergarden. But it is fun and highly addictive.
