Solatorobo: Red the Hunter
I got this shipped from overseas.. WOW you're gonna love this. Imagine, Final Fantasy, Robo Arena, Star Fox (and a few more I can't remember the names of) all rolled into one with a flavor all its own and you have this game. It isn't the most challenging, yet not too easy, but the story, interface, quests, game length, graphics, collectables (pics, music, robo parts...) and user friendly interface are worth every penny of this games small investment. Couple that with download-able quests (as though there were not already enough) and we have a clear winner. Clear your calander when this arrives you'll need some extra time for this. No I don't work for them...Just a good product.
Best game ever!!!
I loved this game from the get-go! First of all it has furries (or animal-like humanoids *furries will do for now*). Red is a hunter (I think it short for job hunter.) and he was on a task to find some data for this guy. Along the way he runs into some trouble and ends up recsuing this little boy(?), and so the story begins. Anyone can pick up and play this game, all you have to do to attack is just grab an enemy with A, rapidly hit A until they are over your head, and then you hit A again to sling them anywhere. IT's that simple! The story is great for a DS game (most RPG-like games have a "cut-and-paste" storyline to me depending on the makers and the title of the game). The animation is the best for the DS (maybe even newer gamecube or weaker Wii animation). Overall, get this game for the DSi for those who love simple games just to pass the time, or if you are a fan of furries! ^_^ Also I have heard rumors of a sequel being made for the 3DS!
The Greatest Game Ever Made!
I first saw this game in Nintendo Power, and I immediately fell in love with it. The graphics are the best you'll ever find on Nintendo DS. The characters are awesome! Red is so cool! <3 Gameplay-wise, it's easy it pick up, so anyone can play it without any problems. I bought mine new (albeit years ago) and it not only had the game, but also the soundtrack! The audio is the best I've ever heard on both this system and all other systems. Ever since playing this game none have ever come close to being as good as Solatorobo. I just wish CyberConnect2 would release a sequel (Solatorobo 2).... Oh well, my words fall far short of giving this game justice.... Please get this and see for yourself why it's the greatest game ever made!
A great way to end the DS legacy
While the colorful art style and odd name may drive many away from picking up this gem, don't let it dissuade you. If you like quest based, RPG, adventure, action, or flight games, there will be something for you in Solatorobo. What starts off as a pretty typical jRPG story turns original with the compelling cast of characters, and at parts, downright dark. Featuring 3D cell shaded models and sprites in hand-drawn backgrounds, this game is easily one of the most visual appealing (if not the most) game on DS. The only downside of this gem would be that the combat system is a tad simplistic. The exploration and quest system more than compensate for this, all coming together to create a game that is fun, innovating, and memorable. Unless sport games are the only ones you play, I can't recommend enough picking up this game.
Very great looking game.
This is the perfect kind of game a hardcore player would love to play alone and with friends.Great job Creators!
I don't know why I said that, but I really want this game, read the preview in Nintendo Power, and it looks awesome. Cant wait till this game comes out.
Diamons in the rock!
I got this game not knowing anything about it. I was really interested in the soundtrack it came with because it's not hard to figure out that game soundtracks are pretty boss! I bought the last copy at the store I was at and for $20 I figured it was a pretty good deal. Little did I know that it was a STEAL! I don't think I'll ever regret buying this game. The gameplay is really fun, the story is really interesting and the music is beautiful! This game deserves every star that it has gotten! What's even cooler about it is that it has a huge Anime influence and it DOESN'T suck @$$!
Not One to Overlook
I saw this game in the store and something told me to get it, so I bought it and played it when I got home.This is not a child's game to any extent . Its has awesome graphics,cut scenes, and awesome music which makes or breaks a game. Starting off the game you may have some concerns, but rest assured this game delivers. The character design is spot on, and their are moments off comedy that can cause explosive laughter. This is one game that requires a sequel, because this guy could be a heavy hitter for the Nintendo world.
A throwback to the glory days of PS1 gaming
The graphics, the orchestral music, the style of gameplay... all bring to mind the awesomeness that was the original Playstation. If you want something lighthearted and fun to play, pick this up.
There probably aren't many people out there who would recognize it, but this game has cameos from an old PS1 game named "Tail Concerto." Both games feature a caninu protagonist riding a small mech capable of catching things with it's long, stretchy arms. Quite possibly one of the coolest things I've seen in a game this year!
when i near of this game i was like thinking fur out yo being the first furry game to be sale in stores
