A game of strategy for the child mind
I first rented this game from my local library and I have to say, it was one of the best choices I ever made. My parents are strict about game ratings so this game is great cause it's rated E10+. It has a great storyline and it gave me another way to get revenge on my brother when he ticks me off. The graphics are really good compared to some other Wii games I've played and its a very interesting story. You start out as a lowly warrior, magician, or thief and make your way to becoming the strongest (and wealthiest) fighter. I recommend this game to RPG game lovers and people who aren't very good at video games. So go out and buy this game NOW!
Sleeper hit and well worth owning!
The concept of this game is a hybrid between a party board game and RPG and it's well executed. Though this game can be played with just yourself and the computer, I find it not as fun as playing with buddies. This game has an infinite amount of reply value. The story mode can take over 100+ hours to complete and every time you begin a new game, it's different. Though the game may seem a bit childish due to its graphical appearance, it's far from it. There is a tremendous amount of depth and strategy involved. The game caters to all ages but those of young age might find the concept a bit too complex. Casual players might be hesitant due to the RPG elements and the amount of strategy involved but they will definitely understand the concept and that's all that's needed. As for hardcore players, this is right up their alley. The controls for the game are simple. The Wiimote is used horizontally and there are no gestures. The graphics are nothing to rave about but they suit the game.
Better than it looks
If you are a fan of RPGs or board games you will like this game. It takes some getting used to but once you understand what is going on its very addicting. Basically its a board game but along the way you collect weapons and armor which you'll need because you face tougher monsters the more you stray away from Dokapon Castle. You start off with the classes Warrior, Magician, and Thief but as you level up these classes by fighting you earn different classes. The game changes pretty fast. Its all about money, whoever has the most by the end of the game wins. Fortunately for 2nd place and below there are plenty of ways for the tide to turn. I've seen anything from the King "accidently" handing out the 1st place persons money to the other players to one of the players using a rare item to turn "bad" and taking ever kingdom you own (owning kingdoms is your main source of net worth) It's a great game to play with your friends because just as they are bragging about being in first place you pull the rug from under them.
Not a solo game.
Just to start off: THIS GAME IS NOT MEANT TO BE PLAYED ALONE! The computer is ridiculously smart when you play alone. It is a really addictive party game. Whenever I introduce this game to my friends they hate when I have to take it home with me. I honestly don't suggest this game to anyone who doesn't want to have fun with a casual game; because they won't enjoy themselves because there really isn't a whole lot of challenge other than that of playing against people. The game characters have an interesting design and the premise is fun and whimsical. Those who like realism or gritty games will hate this so stay away. Other than that I absolutely love this game when I am trying to kill a bunch of hours of my weekend.
The game that will grab you for hours
I first played this game when i was at my friends house. they told me i would like it. just as they said. i really enjoyed playing this game. In fact i went out and got it the next day. It's one of those games that you can pick up and put down at any time ( even though you won't want to). The best way to describe this game is a Mixture of Final Fantasy meets Mario Party. You take turns with friends with a lot of twist anywhere from bonuses to quest interruptions to just robbing all your money. This game ill make you happy, sad, angry, lucky, frustrated, grieving,sneaky, deceiving, basically anything but bored. I admit you will at times from some of the random negative downs frustrated but you will never get bored. So if you want a game that will make you feel really good when you beat it at the end and teach your new strategies( see auto move for this) you'll want this game.
A Must get for any and all RPG Fans
I was certain this game would be suckish when I first bought it, but when I put the Game disc in, and clicked start, I was wrong. The Graphics on this game are a perfect example of what the wii can do. The storyline is enjoyable, even better with friends/family! The Controls are great, the face that you can use a GC Controller, Classic Controller, and the Wii Remote (sideways) gives your a great variety if you dont have enough Wii Remotes. It is a also a very challenging game, you have to think before you attack in this Real-Time battle interface. The Monsters are also original except for a few. If your a party person, or just a solo person, this game is a must get, its fun without anyone else, but with them it only gets sweeter. Final: 10/10 Dont already have it? GET IT NOW!
This game was a huge disappointment! I was annoyed right off the bat with the game's repetitive menu system. You have to press the button after every few words of dialog. This has you mashing the button like a madman just to get through routine tasks during the game. Next at the top of the list is the combat system. I am a turn based rpg fan. This game destroys this system with a 50/50 chance to change the turn order EVERY MOVE. Horrible! I changed the settings repeatedly, however, the computer controlled character hits every random dice roll at maximum gain, every magical item (aimed at you), lands on every single objective the first time. It's an incredibly difficult game to play. The sounds are very annoying and HIGHLY repetitive. I don't see how this game is rated so highly by others. I am exchanging this game tomorrow for something else. Do yourself a favor and pass this one by.
Great game to play with your friends
To start off, this game is probably one of the best party games there is on the wii. it is a mix of mario party and turn based RPG, and if you are a fan of these sorts of games this is the game for you
Mario Party + Monopoly + An RPG = This game
I LOVE this game my friends introduced me to this game and when i played it with them i had a blast ! IMO this is definately a game everyone should pick up if you are a fan of RPGs and like playing with friends.
dokapon kingdom more like dorkapon kingdom
THIS GAME SUCKS! this is why i dont like turn based rpg's anymore. plus its like the computer knows when your gonna strike, thats stupid hello kitty is more fun. the fairy at the beging keeps talking and talking and talking i mean seriosly SHUT UP! i bought cause i thought it would be cool cause i like medevil times but this is nothing like it. they think there cool because you can rob the stores but actually you play ROCK PAPERS SCISSORS really?
