Cute, but primitive

Summary: It looked cute. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was in love with my new DS and was willing ot give anything a try... The first warning bell went off when the voice over dialogue was in Japanese. A lot of the games I like get their start in Japan, but never before had I played one where they had translated the text but not the voice overs. I began to worry that it was made cheaply in a rush. And then I got my first taste of how gameplay worked.
Summary: This game is an entertaining little dungeon crawl with good graphics, fun characters, and lots of neat little Japanese references. Unfortunately it is also extremely frustrating and that tends to drag down the enjoyment quite a bit. You cannot play this game without getting defeated--many, many times. Each time you are taken down by the baddies you find yourself outside the dungeon minus EVERYTHING you had when you went in or found while you were there.
Summary: I must say, while this game did hold my attention because of the unique characters and funny dialogue, I was extremely disappointed with most everything else. When you move everyone around you moves as well, this is helpful in dungeons but in town...? It can get really annoying... Dying and losing everything you've gotten from the beginning of that dungeon is really really annoying as well.
