Review: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky (Nintendo DS)
8 March 2010
Summary: As much as I enjoyed Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky , it’s 75-85% the same game as Explorers of Time/Darkness . Yes there are new dungeons to explore, shops to purchase things from, and five side stories that let you play as new Pokemon, but it’s still hard for me to recommend the game at full price to anyone who had played EoT/D.
Nothing new, but still a fun dungeon crawler for fans.

Summary: Parents need to know that this game is the third game in the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series, where players explore dungeons and battle other Pokemon using non-graphic attacks and special moves. A knowledge of Pokemon, their special moves, strengths and weaknesses, is recommended and will make combat easier.

Excerpt: It’s here! The new installment of the Mystery Dungeon series is a must for the true Pokémon fan. The story is the same: Save the Pokémon! To a big Pokémon fan, this new game is like a road trip and heroic adventure combined. But it might be more interesting for the new Mystery Dungeon fan because of the similarities in gameplay to the last two games. For instance, remember the beginnings of Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness? You’re thrown into darkness.
Excerpt: Gotta cash 'em all! It's been a tough time for Pokémon fans. When the series first hit the US over ten years ago like a Hydro Pump from a Blastoise to the face, all the cool kids were into the Pokémon phenomenon, and with good reason: Despite being a titanic fad, the games were still awesome. Not so these days.
Pros: Lots of Wi-Fi features, Variety in starter Pokémon, ...but who wants to play through it, GBA could put out better graphics, Stick a fork in this gameplay, it's
Excerpt: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky is the latest installment in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon video game series. The game continues with the fun found in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness.
Excerpt: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky is the newest installment in the Mystery Dungeon series. The game expands on the fun found in Pokémon Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness. Players get the chance to be a Pokémon and team up with another Pokémon. Together both set out on an adventure of exploration and discovery, ultimately saving the world from destruction.
Summary: Pokémon fever has no signs of going into remission, though it would seem Nintendo isn't taking any chances, churning out spin-offs and updates at a dizzying clip. For its fourth appearance on Nintendo DS, the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series goes "green" by recycling all content found in both Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Time. Will dedicated dungeon-delvers be disappointed that Explorers of Sky is merely an enhanced version of 2008's twin titles?
Pros: Five new side stories with different playable Pokémon, Eight new dungeons, including a 99-floor Destiny Tower, 492 Pokémon to recruit or make fun of
Cons: Unexciting items, Exact same storyline as in 2008's versions, Repetitive combat
Conclusion: *Read summary of Explorers of Darkness* Addition: If you're looking for a game that separates itself from the games it supposedly enhances, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky is not that game. Players who have never played the series before may find this game enjoyable but other than that, only the most hardcore Pokémon fans (who enjoy even the least critically acclaimed games from the franchise) will enjoy playing this title after playing through any of the...
