Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lost Magic ========= Story ========= Lost Magic features a rather simplistic coming of age story with a few of the usual plot devices. The game does feature a good and bad ending though. ========= Gameplay ========= Gameplay wise combat is in real-time and feels a bit like a relatively simplistic Real-Time Strategy game. Of course, the major focus of combat is ironically enough to capture monsters so you can use them in combat. And, you'll need to capture a lot of monsters during this game since their alignment will be a key factor in how easy or difficult a boss fight is. I also feel like there are a few flaws with the game as well. Sometimes the game has difficulty reading certain spells. Though, this may be because I was drawing certain spells incorrectly. The game will also sometimes recognize spells incorrectly. I had the game read my level one water spell as the level one dark spell more then a few times. I'll also admit that the game can be highly challenging at times with massive spikes in difficulty followed by massive lulls. The constant shift from easy to difficult is rather disconcerting since the final boss fight is much easier then a lot of fights you'll have to get through in order to get there. ========= Graphics ========= Graphically the game is rather colorful, but the designs feel rather simplistic and lacking in detail. ========= Sound ========= The soundtrack for the game is pretty solid. A lot of the pieces add to the mood the game is going for and the other tracks make for rather decent background music during combat. ========= Lasting Appeal ========= After you beat the game you can replay it again while keeping all of your old monsters. The game also increases in difficulty after you beat it as well. ========= Scores ========= Story: 8 Gameplay: 7 Graphics: 9 Sound: 10 Lasting Appeal: 9 Overall: 8.125

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremelly challening but that what makes it great So I have only had this game for a day and i already have a Love/Hate relationship with it! It's has a great storyline, good background music, and room to grow..It just get's really frustrating..And I am what you would occasionally call a hardcore gamer and I just had to stop and go do something else before I could redo the battle for the fourth time... But if your ready for a challenge then Get this game! Come on it's only $5 XD

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Way to challenging Really fun game, but it is way to difficult. They needed to make an easy mode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning in Greatness I've played so many games, yet this one has got to be my favorite. This game is simply amazing. There is not a single flaw and I don't understand how anyone couldn't like it. The story of this game is fantastic, they did a great job with it, along with major character development and plot twists. The gameplay is sweet too. While it is sometimes difficult to draw runes on the touch screen, it's usually pretty good and drawing it enough times will get you used to it. This game, especially it's boss fights, can be very challenging, so I wouldn't recommend this for young gamers, but hardcore gamers will love this, even if their not fond of the DS. The soundtrack is absolutely incredible, the graphics are very good, though they could be better I suppose. And this is one of the few games I've played that I wanted to play again after I beat it. And then again. I'm on my 8th playthrough of this game right now :) All and all, this game is astounding, and I recommend it to anyone who sees it. And spread the word, because this game deserves all the publicity it can get.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from don't buy this... i borrowed this game from my friend for a few days. turns out, it was an awful game. the "casting spells" concept can be uncooperative a lot, and the AI can't even defend themselves ( say, the mission where you gotta protect the girl that fell on you). I do not recommend this game to anyone unless you want to waste $10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best games i,ve ever played. Playing this game was one of the funnest things I have done involving video games. Although the story may not be the best I still enjoyed it. Drawing runes to cast spells is a lot of fun and messing around with all the monsters is too. The wifi was a whole other experience of its own. Although tough for most at first, once you get the hang of it it will be a lot of fun and enjoyable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good game. To start with the controls are horrible. I'll try to cast a spell and lots of times it cancelled the spell. It is very challengeing all throughout the the game. You can't customize your character hardly any. The graphics are very poor. I like the sound and music they chose. Don't listen to game magazenes or anyone who says it's a good game. Why do you think it's ony 5 dollars. It's a horible game that's why. The only way to customize your character is Level UP and make your spells more powerful. The touch screen is way to sensitive. Sometimes it even makes me use a different spell. The graphics look like NES graphics. The music is the best thing I like about it. All in all it was a pretty bad game. It was so bad in fact, I got rid of it before I beat it. Long story short, don't buy this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lost Magic All right, Lost magic is a pretty cool game for the DS if your looking for something to play with the stylus. For the most part the levels are challenging enough, and some of the last level are quite difficult, the Rune Panel System is an awesome implementation though i wish there had been more effects then were available. Frankly the storyline blows, but i didnt really play it for the storyline to start with, and the sound was nothing special either, and there should have been allowed more monster points. Never being able to have a full group of awesome support monsters really kinda sucked. Overall thought the gameplay experience is fun and honestly if they took the time to touch it up and make it a bit more fast paced, they could make a much better sequel.
