So even though I got my Wii last week I was stuck playing Wii golf until today when the game finally came 🙄 Anyway since JP wasn’t home I decided to start on story mode or whatnot with Hana.
It was a little bit unusual to see the slightly different facial designs from the online game but it’s all good. A lot of the outfits are the same as well as courses & music. The music has a slightly different touch to it but it’s generally the same. Since I got the US version of the game……I had to hear the English voices. 😡 Well I honestly don’t mind Quma’s or even Scout’s voices but Hana’s voice makes my ears bleed. Also Dolphini sounds like he/she has smoked too many cigarettes rofl. Pipin is ok and I just started so I haven’t heard anyone else but Cecilia so far. (Hers is decent too.)
What’s fun about Pangya is you can wear any clothes any time. In other words they are not “level locked” so I was able to buy the china dress set for Hana. In addition since you “pay for the game” you no longer are restricted to “pang or cookie” items. I know it’s a “duh” concept but it’s really refreshing to be able to enjoy all the outfits without having to fork over real cash for them considering I only spend $36 on the game itself. As far as swinging, it was a hell lot easier in Wii Golf. For some reason the swinging system in Pangya Wii is horrendous so I just ended up using the game pad so that my shoulder wouldn’t fly off. The game also has fun mini-games you can play with others which reminded me a lot of season 4’s Approach Mission as well as the warps from Lost Seaway (perhaps these were an inspiration?)
Anyway overall the game is fun. Hitting Tomas/Spikes is nearly impossible right now without using the noob clubs (and even then it’s still pretty difficult cause the keys are so close together.) However I am enjoying the general game concept, and horrible voice actors aside it’s a nice way to play Pangya without dealing with AFFers and poorly run game companies. If by chance our Pangya US accounts aren’t migrated and we start back in S3, I may as well just continue playing my Wii version until US gets season 4. My motivation to “wait for the US server to open” is pretty little now that I have something else Pangya related keeping me busy. :3
