Amazing StoryThis game is a missed gem that has turned into a real rarity to find. Its mechanics can get a bit repetitive but it's still fun and its story is just amazing, when you think it's done there's a whole nother game.

The Best Under Rated Game Ever!Everyone who is reading this review right now, don't look past this game! This is the best anime/furry DS game of all time! To the enjoyment of throwing your enemies across the level, to the well animated cut scenes, this is a perfect 10/10 game that would never had been the same without XSeed.

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!

Solatorobo is the BEST DS game EVER!!!!It has been a long time since I have done a review (I did one already on this one.) Two things I want to point out is is that 1. I now have an Xbox 360 and 2. I traded my DS along with this gem (T-T) at gamestop to aid me in getting games for the 360 (Microsoft or Nintendo if you read this review PLEASE make a DLC/Arcade game for the Wii U or 360 and Xseed+Bandai PLEASE MAKE A SEQUEL!!!) *Ahem* On to the review: My first review was only on the first pasrt of the game (stupid me left it off halfway ^_^' ). This review is on the whole game. The game in total was just amazing espicially since the DS only has maybe 5 games that uses the full 3D graphics well (KH, Golden Sun, etc.) Solatorobo pulls it off amazingly. The gameplay is similar to the KH franchise, mash A to pick up enemies, and then throw them at others: it's that simple. Later on you can unlock and use other version of the robot, as well as customise the atributes of the Dahak (via Megaman Battle Network/Tetris). The story of this game made me shed tears. At one point I thought I would have to rest the game due to a "bad ending" most games have nowadays, but it turned out o.k. Also, after beating the whole game, and looking up english lyrics to the songs, man I wanted to buy up every copy ever made, and give them to DS and 3DS holders for free (yes the game is THAT AMAZING!!!!) To wrap up my review, I HIGHLY reccomend this game to anyone looking for a game that is easy to pick up, hard to put down, and challenging at the same time. Play this if you like StarFox, Kingdom Hearts (gameplay-wise), and maybe another game featuring a full cast of Furries.

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!

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 OverlookI 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 gamingThe 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!
