Summary: I purchased this game because it was only 2.99 at the time. The reviews made me hestitate, but hey, it's only three bucks. In Magical Starsign, you'll play the role of a magic student. Your teacher goes missing and you set out with several other characters to rescue her. That's the basic plot, and the game doesn't deviate much from it, if at all. That is, you're not going to be doing a lot of side quests or playing through sub plots.
Summary: There's nothing wrong with the game. but it's so middle of the road. The graphics are nice, but the character designs are atrocious. There's some fmv scenes thrown in, but they're so grainy. It's like watching a scene from a PS1 game. It plays ok, but there wasn't much in terms of gameplay and story to keep me interested. I can see why Nintendo never offered a sequel. Not bad, but not memorable either.
Summary: Its ok. The character designs are horrible!!! For reals there the worst I have ever seen and I have played tons of JRPG's. But everything else technically works. Like I said its o.k. No sparkles.
Summary: Magical Starsign uses a unique battle system that involves strategy and luck. The animations are really well done and the graphics were really great for the Nintendo DS. You can also have a lot of enemies and characters battling at once which makes it fun to be able to have a lot of different options per turn, but also leads to long waiting games while you wait for all the enemies to attack you.
Summary: I got this game with no expectations for it. So it came as a pleasant surprise to find out how much fun it is. Pros: - The story has a lot of comic relief while incorporating some darker themes as the game progresses - Excellent touch screen controls. Everything from combat to shopping controls fluidly even though you are using the touch screen. This is literally the meter stick that I compare other DS games to in terms of their use of the touch screen.
Summary: Magical starsign was a game I had no ideas about before purchasing. It's a pretty solid RPG for the price you pay for it. It is starting to show it's age a little and parts of it really seem as the Brownie Brown was just jumping onto the DS bandwagon and trying to use it's touch screen as an important selling point. Magical Starsign is an alright RPG to put into your DS collection if you want something easy and quick to pick up.
