    Accurate jumping is harder to do in this game than in Super Mario 64, and that came out 21 years ago. It takes quite a few tries to jump on an enemy’s head to kill it. Also there seems to be an issue with collecting "My Nintendo" points, you get an error that says points can’t be collected in your selected region. This is the USA version of the game, using a USA account, there shouldn’t be a problem. This is the only game I can’t collect points for. Also I got no response from the publisher when inquiring why.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Very fun Platform Collectathon

    Very fun, very simple medallion collecting platformer. The game stays fresh thanks to 4 fairly large levels, numerous Challenge Levels and some Mini-Levels. Fun for kids and adults alike, some parts will be very simple while others more difficult (mainly due to the camera and annoying enemy knockback). It is very forgiving which makes it very accessible. Once you complete the game you do get a much more difficult "New Game+" mode which gives you only 1 heart and everything is mirrored for an extra challenge.

    Charmingly Cute Platformer

    Poi is a 3D platformer that pulls a lot of inspiration from those released back in the late 90s. It's a very charming adventure where you can play as one of two explorers and traverse the world for medallions. While not as adorable as other platformers realsed in this day and age, it is still worthy of a play through, and I have enjoyed my time with the game more than I had thought I would. It's cute, and if you loved Super Mario 64, this game might pull your heart strings as well.

    3D platformers are few and far between, so it’s always worth playing one when they’re on the market. And Poi is actually quite good. Sure, it doesn’t have the same production values of a Mario 3D game, or its depth, but I found myself quite entertained collecting the game’s 100 medallions for about 10-15 hours.

    Fun Little 3D Platformer

    Poi came out at possibly the worst time with Mario Odyssey releasing only 3 days after. But Poi is actually a fairly fun platformer in the vein of Mario 64. The moveset is basically pulled directly from Mario 64 and the progression is as well. It's obviously a low budget title but it's got charm and I feel that's worth something.

    This game is highly enjoyable, and has an adventurous feel to it. It’s your basic platformer with different twerks on gameplay here and there. The characters are very generic, but you can’t help but feel a piece of Super Mario 64 when playing this.

    A good 3D platformer similar to the games we all played as kids in the 90s, it's a little rough around the edges due to this, but it's great fun going back to these style of games. Would happily recommend.
