Below Average

Rachel, Amazon

  • Summary: This game is just a below average RPG. The characters are annoying and rpg stereotypes, the plot is pretty dumb and shallow. Like at one point you have to kill this insect queen "because" (I think it was mole people) were warring or couldn't access their food or something. Like it was so contrived and poorly thought out. Like this kids are killing political leaders because they're told to? How do we know the insect aliens weren't peaceful, or non-threatening?

Pretty Bland and Linear

  • 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.

Interesting and unique

  • 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.

Potential unfulfilled

Daniel Kleinfeld, Amazon

  • Summary: This game has terrific design---it's one of the best-looking games on the DS. The colors are well-chosen, the character models are good, and the use of the dual screens, particularly during boss battles, is clever. Unfortunately, the combat is way too shallow---or at least it is during the first ten hours, and I didn't have the patience to play any further. It might be a nice "My First RPG" for very little kids, but otherwise, enjoy the screenshots and pass on the game.

Have I missed something?

M. Johnson "Pure Nard", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I got the game, "Magical Starsign" based wholly on the Amazon reviews. At the price it seemed an absolute bargain which had been described as "the best RPG on the DS" and a "hidden gem." Unfortunately, this maniacal enthusiasm for this game is completely lost on me. Because I'm afriad to say this may be one of the worst examples of the DS' capabilities I have played.

Magical Starsign, Rien de magique...

Fantomas28, Ciao
27 August 2007
  • Summary: J'ai acheté ce jeu en occasion en même temps que ma NINTENDO DS et je dois dire que c'est un flop. Je voulais prendre le dernier jeu Harry Potter mais le vendeur me l'a fortement déconseillé et m'a conseillé celui-ci à la place. Je l'ai acheté d'occasion à 29€ (La valeur neuf est de 40€) Ce jeu est édité pas Brownie Brown, il nous promet de nous plonger dans la magie d'une école de magie et de ses apprentis sorciers (cool on dirait un peu Harry Potter).
  • Pros: jeu au stylet
  • Cons: peu interessant, compliqué, images, sons .  .  .
