Excerpt: The Pokemon Mystery Dungeon has finally made it to the Nintendo 3DS platform. In this franchise humans are turned into Pokemon. They need to save the Pokemon world without much direction. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity repeats these concepts, as well as the game play mechanics. We move our Pokemon team around the dungeon one space at a time. The Pokemon in the dungeon also move around one space at a time. We fight them with attacks when we are close enough.
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.

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: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity is unlike your traditional Pokémon games and takes the player to the world where these creatures live but unfortunately for the Pokémon, something nefarious threatens their perfect paradise. There is a saviour however and this saviour is the player who must choose a Pokémon to be their virtual avatar and this includes Pikachu, Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott and Axew.
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity Review (Nintendo 3DS)

Conclusion: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity is the weakest entry in the Mystery Dungeon series. The game takes one step forward and two steps back. If the player can overcome the simplicity and overall simplicity of the game, there is fun to be had. The shame is the fact that, on the 3DS, there are far better options available to play.
Pros: The game is a licensed Pokémon game; so be ready to see the loveable creatures that gamers have grown to be fond of, and can battle with them a bit differently. The Pokémon Paradise is a fun town building mechanic and can be time consuming. I loved finding the money and materials to create a new building for my town. The places available to build can help improve your Pokémon, such as dojos for moves, stores for items, and fields to farm your berries. The art style is...
Cons: There is not much to the game. The systems, aside from the town building are not deep and everything feels shallow. I had a very hard time trying to push myself to get through a dungeon and onto the next. At times would skip a lot of the optional missions because I just could not bear to spend more time doing the missions. The story is not anything but an afterthought and had nothing more than the minimum to get onto the next dungeon.

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.
