Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very dissappointed I had high expectations for this game after the debacle that was GTI. While the game was much more enjoyable than GTI, it was nowhere near the perfection of Explorers of the sky. The story was very slow at first, dragging on and on through events I didn't really care about. When the action finally started it was lackluster at best with only a few truly good moments. I am also not a fan of the connection orb system. I loved the recruiting system in the old games and I missed it terribly in this game. It felt so pointless when the game just hands you a level 50 Salamance right off the bat. I like to work for those pokemon and train them, not have them handed to me. Also the missions were unreasonably difficult to the point that it was hard to train my lower level pokes as well as the battle missions being exceedingly difficult without lv 50 pokemon. Overall I was disappointed that this game couldn't have been made better than this which honestly seemed like half of a game gameplay wise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A spectacular adventure. This particular mystery dungeon is easily the most difficult game to the entire series. But that's good I suppose for the typical gamer. Just a warning to those reading, this mystery dungeon will NOT allow you to grind. It forcefully tosses you through the story line regardless if you are a level one through ten against level twenties. And dungeons are long, without saves or breaks nearly immediately in the story line. This particular game makes you dependent on items and will make you more wise about how you use them. There's no side exploring in the main mode at all, however, the best they give you is a mode called Pelipper Island so you can collect some items and level up moves with a different set of Pokemon other than the main story's characters. Brutality aside, the game is very satisfying. I'm kind of upest they took jellybeans away... They have been replaced with a new looplet system. These items are effective only during that one dungeon that you find them in. Therefore they break when you complete the dungeon you found them in, and you start over from scratch in the next one. These looplet are quite powerful though, a good replacement for the beans I guess. The choices for primary Pokemon in the beginning and recruits later on is mind blowing. All 720 Pokemon are available in case you haven't heard yet. The storyline is twisted, creepy, and at worst quite a bit far fetched but I like it. The graphics are just as beautiful as they were in Gates to Infinity. When I heard a new mystery dungeon was coming out, including the new gen, I was spastic! I love this spin off series, ever since the red and blue rescue dungeons! :) I would recommend this gem to anyone who enjoys a colorful, adventurous, skillful, and casual game with adorable 3d creatures. This game will never get old.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its different Its different from most of the past pokemon explorer games and some pros and cons with those differences but I'm glad their not sticking to the same old formula that the explorer games almost always had. Pros - you obtain a storage box in which you keep both money and supplies with you making it more convenient, quiz is back, the graphics are excellent and the map is on the same screen again and you can once again take multiple missions on the same trip and your partner pokemon has a new personality from the usual "shy guy" type that weve gotten before. Cons- the game seems more developed for children and for older players seems a tad bit annoying. Yes i understand pokemon is made directly for kids but this took it to a bit of an other level. Even in the game your treated as a child and more so than the past games. Id also like to mention at the first few dungeons you dont get time to prepare yourself so good luck with going in a little under leveled. enemies are still pretty difficult and finding items start to become more difficult. Overall though I find it an enjoyable play even if it acts a little kiddish its still challenging and im glad they went in a different direction

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of the series, hands down! This game is so wonderful! It's definitely a huge recovery from Gates to Infinity (not that I didn't like GtI, it was just bad by comparison to the rest of the series). It's also considerably more difficult than I remember the rest of the series being, even early on. This game is much like the games before GtI, and there are a lot of Easter eggs for those who have played any of the games before. My only complaint is that a lot of times in the beginning, you have to do missions to advance the plot and they give you an impossible one almost immediately. The missions get really crazy. But other than that, the music is wonderful with old and new mixed in, the graphics are wonderful, and it's the most twisted and heartwrenching story to date. I recommend this for everyone, especially if you've played Mystery Dungeon before!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indeed; One of the Best in the Series As a long-time fan and player of anything Pokémon, I reflect back on the very first time I set eyes on a Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game. These games were so vastly different from the standard 'human catches pokémon partner and battles with it' ones that I was accustom to that I simply had to try it out. Fast forward several years later, having played many (if not all) of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series and loving it dearly. Let me just say that never have I felt the need to write a review on any of them before now. That said, on with the review! Whether or not you've played one of this series before, I can assuredly say that this game is great for anyone; those new to mystery dungeon style games in general or those who have played others in series. This game blew me and my expectations of it RIGHT out of the water. There are SO many improvements to the way dungeons and everything are handled, yet all seamlessly implemented without ruining the feel of the "old days" of the game. There are many pleasant reminders of past titles, but nothing that requires the player to have played previous installments to enjoy every minute of this game. The tutorial in this game is something that I found to be well done. It does take you around 30-45 minutes to truly get through it all, HOWEVER, as someone who is prone to getting rather irritable at overly long tutorials that leave a player feeling that 90% of it was just common sense, it does a fine job at making it feel like actually jumping RIGHT into the gameplay. The dialogue isn't too overly drawn out during such, and it plops you right into the thick of it, all without feeling overwhelmed. It's the perfect balance of tutorial for newbies and returning players alike. There are a plethora of new features in this one that make everything SO incredibly convenient. I'm about 14 hours into this game and I'm still discovering new features that make everything so fantastically convenient that it's just overjoying. I would list all that I've found so far, but I think that part of the beauty of this game is discovering it yourself once you're in and playing. The story is intriguing so far. There is a triumphant return of cheesy (yet not cringey) humor that past titles have had, and a refreshing new pace to the cutscenes and such that take place between your dungeon runs. In some of the past games I felt as though the story telling scenes took a bit too long, with far too much needless text as opposed to things that actually help the game keep moving and feel entertaining instead of a sleepy bed-time book reading. There's a good balance of story, cut scenes and dungeon-ing that I feel is really important to keeping everyone happy when playing. The VAST amount of pokémon to choose from is great. And by vast, I mean all 720. The cute little character-choosing quiz remains, yet if you're unhappy with the choice you're given, it immediately hands you the controls and let's you choose who you'd like to play as. Once in game and progressed to the point of choosing your dungeon teams, it's astoundingly easy to play as any pokémon friend you've recruited. Recruiting them in this game is so much smoother than in the older games, and no longer relies on the 'beat'em and they might join you' system. All in all, this game has many reasons why it's a complete and total improvement from the past games. This isn't just a quick rehashed game, tossed out there for a quick buck. It feels like some actual effort was put into it and I can GREATLY appreciate that, as I expect many others will. I highly recommend this game for players of all ages, but DO be careful when purchasing the digital version that downloads directly to your 3DS, as the game itself takes up a hefty chunk of blocks required, at roughly 14,400 blocks. Beyond that, the free wallpaper that comes with it is very nice, too!
