Amazin gameI like this game beacause all of the deatails tey put into this game.This game leaves behind so much suspense every time you get further in it.The action is just like many other games i haved played especially when you get to command your monsters what to do and the stroger you get the better monsters you get to scout.The grapics in this game are amazing espically the story parts and in game play the grapics are good to.The game isn`t that long but if you`r not use to puzzles it will take you forever but that will just make your monsters stronger.I wouldd recommend this to all game lovers that like puzzles first timers for kids like 12 and up,The game is challieng because it`s just so weird to get arond especially if you want to dodge monsters i highly reccomend fighting because that`s one of the best parts in the game.

WHY AREN'T THEY SELLING ANY MORE NEW ONES?This game is great. I think of this game as a little bit of FF and pokemon and digimon. The battle system is just like FF, well almost. You can choose the style of how they att and who. or just let them att on their own. You scout monsters. Scouting if you're new to DQM is basically catching a monster. But the more monsters you have, the more likely you are to get that monster. You have to sync your monsters every now and then if you really want to see the best of DQM Joker. The monsters are ranked from F-S (apparently there is a rank X but i haven't seen it yet so i can't really confirm that...) Overall this game is great. Why they aren't selling any new ones is just messed up. The monsters are cool. I do like syncing monsters the best though, i'm just amazed at what can come out of 2 low level monsters and eventually you sync so many times you have these huge monsters that can dominate everything!

great gameThis first NDS installment of the dragon quest/monsters series is actually a really good first try. The story is kind of fascinating and is simple. Fans of the series will especially enjoy this game. If anything I do have one major problem with this great game and that is it's not very long. With this game and its series to back it up you'll assume it'll take days possibly weeks of your life away. Personally this game only took me a good 22 and some hours to beat which isn't all that long. But with breeding to gain all monster data this game should take twice as long if you feel like accomplishing that task. Some of the puzzles and creative monsters in this game really help it out in my book. If you're a fan you'll really enjoy it especially the addition of the new monster called the Incarnus. Bosses are pretty easy if you leveled up which shouldn't be a problem due to the puzzles. So all in all it's a good game id give it a 8.5/10.
