Summary: Another great Atlus game. It is not difficult or complicated, just plain fun. I am on level 20, and will finish the game soon. The battles are easy once you get the hang of things, even the bosses are fairly easy, except for the last one. It has been very fun creating my 20-level dungeon. It does get a bit repetitive at times, but what RPG doesn't? Sometimes you have to grind for food, which is how you level up, but even that is fun.
Summary: This game is amazingly cute and helps me when I need to think in a more tactical mindset. You can only do so much each in-game day, but that just encourages the player to think before they dig or build. It's a very fun game, and the battles are challenging.
Summary: I think overall, I'd rate this game 4 and 3/4 stars. Much like any game, there's a lot of small things you could add in to appease a certain audience and alienate the other. I was somewhat skeptical on how this game would play out, it read as if it would be boring. I was completely wrong, thankfully! I enjoyed the dungeon creation aspect and even more so, the method on which you develop your character's stats.
Summary: This game is SO FUN! I wasn't expecting too much, but I'm very fond of dungeon building (a leftover form dungeon keeper), so I took a shot. This is actually very entertaining and a little challenging. Design your own dungeon! Fight and capture the monsters who move in! Collect items! So cool! It does kind of feel a little intended-for-12-year-olds. Probably because it is. But I try not to let is distract me from stalking the dark dungeon interiors for phat loot.
Summary: ok so this game is kind of easy but the concept of creating your own dungeon is great! The game can get a bit repetitive, which can be annoying but other than that its fun. I consider myself to be a a serious rpg player and i like it. If they tweaked this game and expanded the story a bit it could be the among the greatest games ever made. I got it much cheaper brand new somewhere else.. i cant say or they willnot post this heh heh. It was not online that i purchased it.
Summary: I write this review from the perspective of being a middle aged mom who loves the DS. I like a variety of games, particularly puzzle, simulation, and seek and solve. The only similar game I have played and loved was The World Ends With You by Square Enix---the other RPG's or Dungeon Crawler type games I played being way more complicated then I could handle (or wanted to handle!). I really love this game.
Summary: This game is outstanding. The concept of the game is very novel and they pull it off well. They may bill this as a kiddy rpg, but I think any rpg fans could enjoy it. Pros: Cute graphics Simple controls Great storyline Unique way of 'leveling' your stats. Cons: You can't choose the name or gender of your hero.
Summary: I bought this game partly because it was $10 with free shipping at the time, partly because of brand loyalty to Atlus. It's pretty light-hearted fare, with mild RPG elements; battles take place in turn-based fashion, but there are no experience points. Instead, you harvest items from defeated monsters and use them to create food that you can eat to raise your stats once a day.
