Rated 10 out of 10 by wreckingballskylander12 I explain Pok'emon.
Here are pros and cons.
-dialouge is extremely slow
-there is more cut scenes than actual dungeon exploring and game play
-after main story, all you can do is requests and build
-main story is very short, you can beat it in less than 40 hours
-all starters are male
-in "Discover A Maganagate", you can not play as your Pok'emon, unless you complete the dungeon, you get a random starter you didn't choose. Also, after defeating the dungeon, you can play it gain and choose your starter, but it can not be the Pok'emon you chosed as yourself.
-enimies are very strong and can evolve
-you can choose who you want to be
-game play is fun
-Streetpass and Spotpass can be used
-Multiplayer, co-op, and online features are great
-your Pok'emon (you and your partner) do not evolve until after the main story
-you can nickname your Pok'emon whatever you wnat
-you can choose a team name
-3D is amazing
-graphics are great

I just played the demo for this game- and loved it! My brother and I had Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team for GBA & Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time for DS and although my brother liked them, I didn't enjoy them at all- so obviously I wasn't really sure what I was getting into when I downloaded the demo. The first thing I noticed was how nice the graphics were compared to the earlier versions- the 3D looked very cool and fit the game nicely. The story was enjoyable- although it still had the usual cheesiness of all Pokemon games, it was still rather nice and interesting. Gameplay was mostly the same as the recent titles in this series, and i like how you now have the ability to chose which moves your parter can use. The world looks beautiful and I like all the characters. Overall, the demo was excellent and I can assure you the game will be just as good. I'm definitely buying this when it comes out. Still, if you havent played a Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game yet, I would recommend you try the demo first, because they are different and not for everyone.
Rated 6 out of 10 by PhoenixZephyr Not as good as previous Mystery Dungeon games
I've played a few of the previous Mystery Dungeon games, including Red Rescue team and Explorers Sky. Those were great games which is why I thought Gates to Infinity would be fun.
It's not. First off, there is no quiz for which character you'll be. There's only four options, the Unova starters and Pikachu. I was annoyed at this because the quiz was always fun and there were quite a few options on which Pokemon you'd become in the previous games.
The side quests where you hold the camera up to something circular seemed fun in the commercial. However, you couldn't go into these with the pokemon you originally chose. So that lost its appeal quickly.
While the graphics looked great, the storyline was slow, there was a lot of text, more than I thought necessary and I couldn't find a way to make it go faster, and overall I was just bored.
Rated 5 out of 10 by DirtySchmitt Its a disapointment to a great series.
I love pokemon mystery dungeon games. The stories of the past games kept me addicted the whole way through, and then post game, there is so much more to do. You could recruit legendaries, take on harder dungeons, even ones with 99 floors. This pokemon md game was a disappointment. The story was awful with very few great parts. It was comprised of many stalling and annoying scenes and distractions. I could care less about the story as i went through the game. I love the post game of md games. I like challenges and recruiting legendaries. I found out there is only 5 legendaries from black and white, and ho-oh, and none can be recruited. There were new dungeons, but with no point to reaching the end. I quickly sold the game after beating it before the price plummets on this mistake of a game.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Beyondthemax Lost It's Touch
To much has differed from what the past mystery dungeon games has set. A change was nice from the same story line that followed from previous titles, but at last the game failed in comparison just like the black and white version of the main story line series. A small total of Pokémon are available within the game, a scattered plot, more unnecessary complications to what was once simple as far as shops and such, Wi-Fi is almost a must have to enjoy the game, and just a big pet-peeve of my own is that your starter Pokémon are Pikachu, Axew, or Gen. 5 starters.... quite disappointing since those are (in my opinion) some of the most boring starters in the Pokedex. The game is playable, don't get me wrong, but I recommend not wasting much money on it if you are unsure of buying it, test if so.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Lolz125 Could Have Been Better But Still Great
Maybe I had too high of expectations with this game but for me it just wasn't as good as the predecessors. This game isn't bad, in fact I really liked it but it just doesn't have the compelling stories of the first two games of the series and it seemed to have some annoying programming choices that seem to make it a bit more tedious (slow and unchangeable text speed, bigger dungeons with less items, only being able to accept one request job at a time, etc). The good things about this game are the graphics and music. Despite dungeons being a bit harder to navigate, in my opinion, the graphics style and music to each of the dungeons were really well made to give you a good sense of atmosphere of where your reside. They also made some good programming choices in this game to make things a bit easier for newcomers and veterans alike (every pokemon getting exp whether they go to a dungeon or not, bank and item deposit in one, saving is in a menu instead of one place, etc). Overall this game is pretty darn good but I'd really have to say this isn't the best one to start of with in mystery dungeon series but even if you do pick this one up before the predecessors you will still have a good time with it!
Rated 10 out of 10 by speedkill phenomenal
I've completed the game. And let me just say, the story is the best out of the entire series. Sure, the final battle trolls you at first (You can't do anything). But after that, it just feels so satisfying to literally punch it in the face. In the FACE! Anyway, the music. Dare I say, this game has one of the best soundtracks in video game history. Ragged Mountain was phenomenal for the FIRST DUNGEON, End of the Road Alternate Arrangement 1 was a great remix of the original, Great Spire was epic and tells you that you're near the end, and that... that ENDING!! I'm not going to go into full detail, but let me just say this. That ending is one of, if not the most emotional moment in gaming history. All this bumps my rating up to a ten. By far, one of, if not my favorite game ever.
Rated 10 out of 10 by joshman196 In my opinion, better than the previous two.
First things first: Amazing soundtrack, great graphics, definitely has AN AMAZING story, and it lasts for a good long 18-19 hours to beat the game (from my experience, at least.) Yeah 18-19 hours is how a really good story should last. With the previous two, I only cried at the ending, but this game delivers so many feels that you could cry at multiple times before the ending. The music is just... astounding. Most of it really gets me pumped up for the dungeons and bosses and some of them make the feels on the bus go round and round. Seriously, this game is good. Get it. (Also, now in my thoughts, I starting to think, I love the Mystery Dungeon so much that... I'm starting to like it better than the main series. Crazy, right? But seriously, that's how I feel.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Juanblue85 A Great Game
I have played this extensively on the 3DS and really enjoy it and its easy to get into I have also played the other PMD series on the DS but this latest entry is much better in my opinion since the characters are likable and the story is great. There can be lots to do like expanding you PKMN Paradise or going to tougher dungeons to reap better rewards. There is plenty to do during the course of the main game but sadly after you beat it there isn't much to do unless its doing the aforementioned expanding your Paradise and do random requests on the requests board. I'm hoping that when the Gen VI PKMN roll out this Fall we get another entry in the PMD series with a longer engaging story and more post game stuff.
