  • Excerpt: Contact is a quirky RPG developed by Grasshopper, the house who brought us Killer 7. It was translated by Atlus for a US audience and held a lot of promise. Initial speculation about the game indicated a sense of humor and style akin to the beloved Earthbound for the SNES. The box itself touts things like no dull moments or melodrama. So does this game live up to its promised potential? The answer is a resounding "no.

  • Excerpt: plays host to a wholly uninteresting, slow-moving, and surprisingly short story. You control Terry, a schoolboy who is skipping school one day when a spaceship happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and he bears witness to it crashing to Earth. Out comes the Professor, a kindly old man who bids Terry to get in his ship as soon as possible, as he is being pursued by a band of galactic terrorists called the CosmoNOTs.

  • Conclusion: Contact offers some brilliant concepts and promises, but doesn’t feel as great as it should be. The game does have an extremely unique visual style and a bizarre story, but dungeon crawling, building up stats, and beating enemies aren’t particularly new. The sticker/costume system is interesting, and does make the game feel somewhat fresh, but remains flawed. Still, the experience is still interesting, and the bizarre story alone should make any RPG gamer intrigued.

  • Summary: Here's an RPG that requires your disbelief to be suspended somewhat higher than usual - so high, it's liable to come crashing down and knock you back into reality like the snapping shut of a DS lid.
  • Pros: Fun to play
  • Cons: Tricky plot

  • Conclusion: If you want to make Contact in strange new ways then this passionate game could be for you. Just don't be hoping for something amazing to take you away from all your bases.
  • Pros: Unique and different, Great dialogue, Deep character stats, Weak points for massive damage
  • Cons: Fairly short, Basic sound, Not for everyone., No “RIDGE RAACCEER!”

Review: Contact

  • Conclusion: Contact es una aventura bastante original y que supone un soplo de aire fresco, no sólo en los juegos de rol de la portátil de la doble pantalla, sino también en el género en sí. Un juego que, a pesar de no hacer mucho ruido cuando salió, vale la pena tenerlo en cuenta en tu lista de compras.
  • Pros: - El planteamiento original., - Lo simple y divertido que resulta., - El diseño de los fondos

  • Conclusion: Una cosa però deve essere oggettivamente riconosciuta a Contact: quella di voler sempre rompere le regole, di volerci presentare un gioco all’apparenza fin troppo banale, ma che in realtà vuole esprimere ben altri concetti.
  • Pros: Stile grafico unico e riuscito, Sonoro ottimo, Un gioco diverso
  • Cons: Alcuni elementi del gameplay non sono curati sufficientemente, Un gioco diverso
