Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers Sky
my friend stole this game from me, and moved... this game is a treasure to play, and to keep. i love
One of the best pokemon games!
One reason why I love this game is because of the story! You can also recruit legendary pokemon for exsample: Shaymin (Climb sky peak twice) Dialga (Go to hidden land after fighting primal dialga) and much more! I also like recruiting new members for the team!
I got this game and am happy about it.When I was picking it up at my local Gamestop store,I thought it was nothing much more or different then the older ones.When I played it,I was totally proven wrong.I love it very much to play and recommend it.It was worth the money and time.
Honestly one of my favorite games.
I acknowledge that this is an old game, but I replayed it recently, so why not. I'll begin this review by saying that if you have fully played through Time or Darkness, don't get this. The storyline is identical, with features being added to Sky. However, if given the choice, Sky is the superior of the three versions. I'll be doing my reviews with the four criteria Gamestop has already- Gameplay, Graphics, Sound, and Lasting Appeal- but will be adding a section for storyline at the end. With that said, let's begin. The first is gameplay. It's most certainly repetitive, and the gameplay from dungeon to dungeon remains the same. However, that's not to say that it isn't fun! The controls are simple but rather customizable, being able to create linked moves, instant attacks with a combination of buttons, and assigning throwing items to a button combination. The concept remains the same. You crawl through each dungeon, fighting through enemies and collecting helpful items along the way, as well as money that can be exchanged for goods and services that are helpful later. It's definitely not good for a person who hates repetition, but if you're okay with the mechanics being the same each dungeon, that's great! The game can be a little difficult at times, though for the most part usually only bosses will give you trouble. There are more difficult dungeons you can enter, though. The dojo dungeons, plus one special dungeon, will make it so that you cannot bring any items in, and there are particularly harsh ones out there such as the Zero Isles, one of which takes all your items and sets your level to one before tossing you into a harsh 99 floor dungeon. There are challenges for everybody! The graphics... are really nothing special. The dungeons are all the same and have a sort of washed look about them, and a lot of the time areas don't have a particularly stand-out design. However, the sprites are charming and the animations are well done on them, as well as the expressions of some of the characters. Some of the scenery is nice, as well, such as Fogbound Lake or the top of Sky Peak, as well as the future ones, which are grim and capture the atmosphere perfectly. As for the sound... oh, I could talk for hours about the sound track! The dungeon themes are, by far, some of the most amazing. The atmosphere is captured in a gorgeous and evoking way that only music can do, executed perfectly and setting a perfect atmosphere for the worlds you will explore. They are memorable and some of the nicest and most atmospheric I have heard from almost any game. There are other themes that aren't part of dungeons, but they are just as good. The bouncy theme of Treasure Town sets a wonderful atmosphere, the laid-back tune of Spinda's cafe is suitably lax, listening to the crossing of the sea of time is phenomenal, the bittersweet music of a parting invokes emotion so perfectly. All in all, the music is one of the most amazing parts about the game, in my opinion. The ingame sounds, as opposed to the dungeon themes, are simple and not incredibly diverse. This isn't a bad thing at all! The sound effects are suiting and not obnoxious. It's always a rewarding sound to hear the clink of gathered money or funny to hear the flustered flapping of Chatot irritated once again. Now for lasting appeal. God, yes, this game has some of the most lasting appeal I have ever experienced. This game was the first to make me cry, to genuinely cry, at the ending. The story is beautifully crafted and surprisingly deep, the initial colorful and childlike appearance it took taking a sudden and dark turn, entering periods of great questioning, character development, revelations, the revealing of the grand scheme of time. It's extremely appealing, and this game is one I have never and will never forget. I am not embarrassed to say that I have replayed this game probably about ten times, possibly more, simply because I wanted to live that story again. As opposed to the main Pokemon series, almost every character you meet will have a unique and charming personality, and you will get emotionally invested into many of them, trust me. All of them are wonderfully crafted, and you'll find yourself picking favorites. Celebi, Team Charm, Chatot, Wigglytuff, Grovyle, Dusknoir... I could go on. This is also part of the reason I say Sky is the superior version. In Sky, you will unlock extra little side stories known as special missions, which will allow you to delve into the stories of other characters throughout the game. While I don't have much to say about the first and third, learning about Wigglytuff's past, seeing the escapades of Team Charm, and learning the fate of Grovyle and Dusknoir was extremely satisfying and just as incredible as the main storyline. One huge emphasis in this game is the development of the relationship between you and your partner pokemon, and you become extremely attached to them and other characters, which makes the ending that much more heartbreaking. Overall, the game is unforgettable. Now for my final segment, the storyline. Those of you who came from playing Red/Blue Rescue team already experienced something similar to what happened in this game. However, Sky takes a rather dark turn. Initially, the game takes the same sort of simple storyline that Red/Blue take. Sure, time is getting messed up, and you know that you'll have to fix it later, but to start it doesn't seem as bad. However, with the introduction of the Time Gears, things get interesting. Without spoiling way too much here, rather than catch the thief of the time gears, you get thrown into post-apocalyptic type locations, have an attempt of execution, learn about the strange workings of time and who's really pulling the strings, and find the lengths one will go for self preservation. It's a surprisingly complex and reflective story, and one that I am absolutely in love with. It is by far the best storyline of the pokemon series, and sits extremely high in terms of all time favorite stories. Basically, all in all, this game is extremely worth checking out!

Explorers of Sky ranks sky high!
From one Pokemon gamer to another, I have played every Pokemon game in the history of forever (No I don't mean I've used each and every copy of each and every game) and Sky tops them all! I love the extended storyline from Time and Darkness like the back stories for Guildmaster Wigglytuff and the loveable (though admittedly dopey) Bidoof. The main bonus for me is the addition of the Sky Jukebox, a lovely feature that will -once you unlock it- allow you to choose the music you listen to while dungeon crawling. How awsome is that? Another thing that was added that rocks is rescue in a bottle requests. Because how do those "Save me!" letters even get to the rescue board anyway? Did Peliper get them from the Pokemon in distress? If he did, why didn't he save them? The message in a bottle makes some sense at least. There is one thing that annoys the heck outta me though, that would be the confusingly named items. Eat an Oran berry, restore 100HP, but eat an Oren berry you lose 100HP. That is like, twelve flavors of irksome. There are quite a few items with really similar names in addition to the Oran-Oren berry thing but I don't want to list them all. Other than that this game is perfect! Thank you for reading my review, and good luck in the game! Remember, if you need help, thousands of teams are there to save you over the Wi-Fi!
Mostly A copy
Pokemon Explorers of The Sky was fun for people who didn't play explorers of time or explorers of darkness. This is because it was the same story line and they just added a new end to the game. All in all i thought it was a fun game but being one of the people who played Explorers of time, it was not much fun for me to play. I think it was prety good but it could have been better. It was a cheat and it gave us less then we bargened for. It was fun don't tell me other wise and it is very complicated but I have seen the exact thing befor.Thank you for reading my long Review
A true epic
This game manages to do something the main pokemon games fail at and that is tell an amazing emotional story. You'll be craving every story piece to see where it goes next. In true pokemon fashion this is a huge game with a lengthy post story. Also this has some new episodes and you can play as Rioulo Lucarios pre evolution. The music is fantastic. The graphics aren't as impressive as Black or white, but they look like a GBA game. Which I'm cool with. The cut scenes do have stellar pixel art though. Also look into to getting the guide. Order it off amazon. It has to be one of the biggest guides that I have ever scene, 720 pages! So the gameplay is a blend of realtime and turnbased, it is kinda of hard to get used to but you eventual will. This is not about collecting them all but rather going on an epic journey as a human who has been transformed into a pokemon. You do get pokemon to join your team randomly after they have been defeated by you. The dungeons a randomly generated, leading to some suprises, sometimes you'll get lucky and the staircase will spawn next to you, other times you'll end up exploring the entire floor before finding it. This is a very hard game but it rewards you with an excellent story and world. If you are getting this for a young kid they might have trouble with this games steep difculty curve. Leveling up is extremely slow in these games. Slower than YS or other similar action rpg's. So I recommend you level up in the first dungeon to make the game easier for yourself. The world is fantastic as the game draws you into being an apprentice at the Tuff wigglytuff guild. You accept jobs and hunt outlaws for a bounty. You can go to town to buy items or train at a Dojo. The world kinda of reminds me of the monster hunter games, you have shops, a place for missions, etc. And you go away for missions. But everything else is completely diffrent from monster hunter. So if you beat black/white and are waiting for black/white 2 pick this up for a nice summer game.
Best game ever!!!
Overall, great game. New pokemon and items. Great storline and side stories. Highly recommend this game to any pokemon fan.
