That’s not to suggest it does anything badly. Graphically it looks suitable gaudy and shiny and all the squeaks and squelches are appropriately cute and cuddly. What’s perhaps the most appealing aspect is the way in which it attempts to let you leave your mark on the world. If you explore lots you’ll get a more exploratory creature, if you fight more you’ll get a better fighter. Alongside this you have the chance to ‘leave your mark’ by altering other creatures and generally mucking around with your surroundings. But it never goes far enough, it always keeps with what is comfortable, what is tediously generic.
