Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness
Meep!!!!!!!!!!!!! ( realy good Game!!!!!!!!!!!!! )
Don't listen to any one who says this game is bad, because there lying!!!! This is the best pokemon game I've ever played. Plus i've been playing since I was 5, and I've played the following pokemon games: leaf-green, Platinum, dash, Heart gold, ruby, emerald, black, red ( original not fire red ), White 2, and Crystal!! So I have a good perspective. Also the story line is pact with cool secrets ( if not it's not my fault, I was 7-8-9 ish )
When I was younger, the story blew my mind, there is a key moment in the story that changed the way that I thought of storytelling in video games, most people who played it might know this moment, but reguardless I am not going to tell you this great moment. This game in my opinion is the best thing that has ever come out of Generation 4 along side with that awesome darkrai movie, this dungeon crawler is so much fun, it stole hours of my time. My only problem is how you choose your pokemon, it doesnt have customization, you have to answer a set of questions and then your pokemon is choosen for you, for example I want a torchic, so I would have to go through the survey at the beggining many times if I wanted a torchic. And that is really frustrating. But overall, the game is a handheld masterpiece, one of my favorite pokemon games on the ds and one of my favorite pokemon games in existance.
Enjoyable in small doses
A solid follow up to Red Rescue team, but lacking in a few key areas. Mostly not being able to evolve your main characters until the absolute end of the game was the largest let down. Had the Pokemon company let you evolve earlier then you wouldn't have to try high level dungeons at halve the recommended level. The only other negative is that the story line is quite nonsensical. Other then that, it is a well built turn based, dungeon-crawler, Pokemon game.
This games sucks don't buy
i bought this game and though it was going to be like a normal pokemon game i was wrong the battling is horilbe and the gameplay is ok but i never thought that your an actual pokemon not a pokemon
Sorry, but Mystery Dungeon is an EPIC FAIL!!!!!!!!
I am sorry Nintendo, but this is the first time you have dissapointed me. I played this gamefor about 3 hours, but the gameplay was SO BORING AND HORRIBLE, that I put it down. Literally, I put my DS down, left it on, and just listened to the awesome music for a while. I traded this game in a week later. I hated Pokemon from that day foward, UNTIL I got Firered. I am now a Pokemaniac for life! Bottom line, this third party game stinks. Try the original gameplay versions.
BEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THE GAME IS GREAT FOR KIDS MY AGE.WHEN I HAVE NOTHING TO DO, I PLAY THE GAME
don't buy this game
do not buy this game it makes pokemon look likeTRASH!!!!!!!!if u want a good pokemon game buy soulsilver or sapphire the bottom line this game sucks
I love this game. Its outstanding and if u wanna get a good pokemon game. THIS IS IT! it made me cry but in a good way. you will make many friends as you play as a pokemon to save the world. Even legendaries. The only bad part is when i cried because of a certain part. But u should get this game.
I'm a very big fan of Pokemon. I have about every Pokemon game there is from Gameboy to Ds, and I absolutley loved this game. The story line is really interesting and i couldn't stop playing this game until I beat it! I love that the game is really long and not short like other pokemon games.(Pokemon ranger) I don't think there is anything wrong with this game. I love it so much! I would recomend it from about age 11 and up..since there is alot of reading to do , like most Pokemon games.
A storyline to remember
There are plenty of reviews that have a varying amount of opinions, but mine are always blunt and honest. The battling system is flawed and It is hard to control. I didn't pay much attention to the music, though I do remember having some of the tunes stuck in my head for a decent amount of time. The saving grace of this game though, is the beautiful storyline. It was very well thought of and played with the emotions of the player. The ending was magnificent, though, like the rest of the reviews here, I will not spoil. Any players that are hopeless romantics for story lines, then this game should be in your shelf because it is truly fun and entertaining. I know how hard it is to find a really good game, and in my opinion, this is definitely a safe bet.
There's also an additional cut scene at the end of the Credits so you might want to endure through it to see it.
