Joker is no Joke

GIN
21 April 2008
  • Excerpt: At first glance I wasn’t sure if this was going to be a kids’ game that would bore me, or if it was going to be an over-exaggerated attempt at porting a Saturday-morning-cartoon-esque game to the DS.

  • Excerpt: It has been nearly 10 years since the Pokemon craze hit North America. Pikachu, Ash Ketchum, the urge to “catch ‘em all” – these became a part of our everyday lives. The anime was huge, the games were enormous, and the merchandise raked in billions.

  • Excerpt: An RPG that plays like a fantasy version of Poke’mon? Count me in. With an entire world designed by DragonBall Z’s creator Toriyama, you find the world looks like it should be called DragonBall Z Quest Monsters : Joker as there are endless clones of people who look like they were cloned from the DBZ...
