Experience what it is like to be a Pokemon.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game features plenty of combat by pitting the Pokemon on the player's team against various renegade Pokemon. Conflict isn't graphic, and the Pokemon retain well-known special moves from other Pokemon games, like Bulbasaur's Leech Seed move – so, a prior knowledge of the Pokemon universe is an asset. Through Wi-Fi, you can "rescue" fallen friends and exchange items and Pokemon teams with another player.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game review

Boys' Life magazine
14 June 2008
  • Excerpt: Ready to transform into a Pokemon? These two brand-new games put you into the skin of one of 16 Pokemon as you play a twisting, turning adventure full of dungeons to explore. But that’s not all. In either game — Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness — you’ll meet 490 Pokemon. Gonna catch ’em all? Not this time. It’s more like, Gonna remember ’em all? And you get serious gameplay for your money: over 40 hours.
  • Pros: Living life as a Pokemon is fun; scenes between gameplay are gorgeous; WiFi lets you e-mail your pal for help.
  • Cons: Gameplay feels old and sometimes like the same thing over and over again; very little use of the touch screen; gameplay graphics are too small and aren’t nicely done.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time

  • Excerpt: I hope I'm a cute Pokemon! Please don't make me a Cydnaquil or a Chikorita! Pressing your finger to the DS touch screen and letting it read your "aura" causes just these types of anxieties, but luckily my personality quiz says I'm...lonely? Oh well, at least that makes me an adorable Mudkip!
  • Pros: Adorable Pokemon dungeon crawling, local and Wi-Fi rescue system

Expert Review

Official Nintendo Magazine
12 May 2008
  • Excerpt: It would be very easy, and a little unfair, to just wade in and say that the two latest Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games - Explorers Of Time and Explorers Of Darkness - are almost identical to their predecessors, Red and Blue Rescue Team. Even though technically, they are, but then given that we've come to expect that from every Pokémon game over the last decade, it's hardly a new criticism.
