Does a good job at hooking you, despite a few nit-picks.

Summary: Overall, it feels like an anime made for kids. It’s fun, it’s charming, there are annoying flaws in the gameplay and the dialogue gets cliché sometimes. If you like Pokemon, anime, and simple stories, you’ll like this. But you probably won’t want as second play through Critique: The story/dialogue is fairly juvenile…not that that is a bad thing. It's got a real charm to it. But the gameplay has a little bit of B.S. sprinkled in here and there.
Summary: Pretty fun, its cute to run around as a Pokemon who represents yourself. The plot is actually pretty fun, even though I'm an adult I wasn't terribly bored by the childish storyline, even if I had to button mash a little, haha. However, if you think this is like Red, Blue, Green, or the classic style of a partner and his team of Pokemon, then watch out. This game is different, and you might not like the change.
Summary: A solid follow up to Red Rescue team, but lacking in a few key areas. Mostly not being able to evolve your main characters until the absolute end of the game was the largest let down. Had the Pokemon company let you evolve earlier then you wouldn't have to try high level dungeons at halve the recommended level. The only other negative is that the story line is quite nonsensical. Other then that, it is a well built turn based, dungeon-crawler, Pokemon game.
Summary: This game is very fun. I especially enjoy the graphics, creativity of the characters, and ranging personalities. The dungeons being generated are always different and always fun. I do find some downsides to it as well as things like repetitiveness, difficulty, amount of dialog, and more. I do think this is one of the better games, especially if you enjoy pokemon and/or mystery dungeon.
A definite improvement over the first Pokemon Mystery Dungeon

Summary: This game has a much better storyline than the first game. The overall gameplay is the same but I found it to be much more fun. And another improvement over the previous game is that it lasts much longer; you can play all day and you still won't beat it. I gave it 4 stars because it's impossible not to compare it to other games like Pokemon Red version, Silver version, Ruby version, Diamond version, etc.
Summary: I think this game is great because you can make friends and you go on lots of missions. Later in the game you will find a treasure and battle legendaries. Some places like Beach Cave and Drenched Bluff are a little weak. Other places are harder.
Summary: When you (or your partners) faint in a dungeon, you lose all your money (not such a big deal) and "some of" your items. If you have a particularly difficult dungeon to get through and you faint repeatedly, your chances of making it through the dungeon get lower and lower each time, because you finally get to a point where the only items you've got are the ones you find IN THAT DUNGEON.
