Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity
2 September 2013
Summary: There's something to be said about a game that sets you in the world of Pokémon, with eyes unclouded, as a citizen, and not a slave driver. It's an interesting experience to see the realm from their perspective, which, for the most part, consists of outlooks so positive, that it's nearly enough to make your life feel inadequate in the process.
Conclusion: Simplification and removal of some key components harms the game, though there’s still some great stuff here for younger gamers and those willing to grind their way to it through the tedious story.

Summary: Parents need to know that Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity is unlike traditional Pokemon games in that players actually play as Pokemon rather than collect them. That means it's the player's character doing the fighting, not a pet commanded by the player. What's more, these Pokemon talk and have vibrant personalities.
Excerpt: What is Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity ? A simple enough question. One answer is it’s the latest in the Mystery Dungeon series and the first one for the Nintendo 3DS. Another answer is that it’s a that mixes Pokémon with roguelike, dungeon-crawling mechanics.

Summary: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity isn’t as good as previous releases in the series. It has a third of options for starting Pokemon, a fraction of the dungeons and the least amount of obtainable Pokemon yet. The difficulty has also been drastically reduced making this a cakewalk from beginning to end. While one may wonder why the GBA Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game has more content than a 3DS one, unfortunately it’s not a question I I can really answer.
Excerpt: Even though it has absolutely nothing to do with Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, the new roguelike dungeon crawler featuring Japan's finest imaginary creatures, I'm going to tell you anyway: Finally, after years of work, I've managed to catch one each of all 649 species of Pokemon.
Conclusion: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity is a fun game, there’s no doubt about that. However, the difficulty is kind of low for the most part and the dungeon layouts, while random, will get repetitive very quickly. Still, it’s worth a play through if you’re a fan of Pokemon or of the past Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games.
