Quoted from Hype: The Time Quest Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Hype: The Time Quest reviews & previews
"It's a shame that these awkward interface features mar Hype, it is such a marvelous game. Unfortunately the interface problems are intrinsic, and will not be solved by a patch. Still, it is a charming adventure, and not at all easy to solve."
"When Hype makes it to store shelves, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the majority of players will be older teens or adults. Hype is one game that you might want to sneak into Santa's little bag o' goodies, and will serve as a great get-away from all of your other games if you are in need of a good laugh. Just looking at the character's little facial expressions and animations transformed my grin into a smile, or maybe all those hours of playing Barbie's Boring Adventures made me feel giddy and even laugh at myself in the mirror and tell myself that I am in need of one serious haircut."
"Despite some shortcomings, Hype is fun. It's the type of fast-action adventure that made Zelda such a hit on console, although that's where the comparison has to stop. Hype in itself is a light game perfectly suited for younger audiences. Older gamers won't be satisfied with it as a complete game, but parents who sneak a game or two at night might be able to have some fun themselves."
"The Playmobil characters in the game are brought to life and combined with an interesting story to make a game that will challenge not only younger players, but more experienced gamers as well. While the game does have more primitive 3D modeling for the world than others of its type, it makes up for it in the cuteness of the character animations. If you’ve been looking for a game that kids will enjoy, take a look at Hype -- you won’t be disappointed."
"And it is simple, amiable fun. I found satisfaction in even the most ordinary of tasks: playing exterminator, climbing the timbers atop the monastery tower, and sorting out the combination for a locked door. Not to mention more complex challenges like the progressively more difficult bosses. Battles with the sumo wrestler in the monastery and the grand magician in the lab kept me well occupied."
