>>323060308 It combines a lot of elements of rogue-likes with pokemon. If you enjoy rogue-likes and pokemon then I recommend it. If you're still unsure, then pick up a rom of Explorers of Sky and give that a whirl.
Story is boring and super linear. Super slow beginning where you spend 10 hours at a school going through pseudo-tutorials which is 2/3rds of the game The main gameplay is still mindnumbing grinding bullshit with a few new features and inprovements. The so-called hook of ZOMG ALL 720 POKEMON is in vain when the way you recruit them is one by one via missions, and often the story gets in the way of you wanting to do said missions because it corrals you into its own OC DONUT STEEL brand of monotony. The ending is literally a ripoff of Kirby where the big bad is something called Dark Matter which is essence of all Pokemon's negative emotiona combined and it pulls some Tree of Life into orbit which weakens the Earth's orbit and makes the Sun slowly careen towards it. But then blahblahblah power of friendship saves the day who gives a fuck. Then you go to post game and in trying to dig through the missions that'll FINALLY offer your favorite 'Mon you realize you've wasted upwards of up to 40 hours of your fucking life playing this monotonous shit and that you fell for a truly epik maymay on neo-/v/.
The game in all honesty is a solid 7 but a group of Mystery Dungeon spazzes think ITS THE BEST GAME EVER HOLY FUCK!!111 and shill it to death.
>>323061210 This anon is actually pretty accurate. The recruiting method of the game is pretty shit and the biggest thing I'm in agreement on is the forced, extremely dull story line that's essentially a tutorial the entire game. Overall it's still fun to play but the game pushes you in one direction for far too long and the lack of freedom is a turn off. If you've played other Mystery dungeons and liked them I'd say you'll still enjoy this one. I did despite what's previously been mentioned about it.
>>323062515 It's cool in the sense that it garuntees that you'll recruit the pokemon you're helping so I suppose it's not the worst idea. I think I'm just being finicky in the sense that it's not like "Oh I want this specific pokemon so I'll go there and get him" kinda thing.
>>323063093 Not even. I can only list my favourite, Ampharos, which had a negative rate, but I'm sure it was not the only one. Only starters and Kecleon have a maximum of 0.1%, but negative recruitment rates were a pain in the ass regardless because friendship items did not exist until extremely late game, like, Zero Isle late game, and level 100 of course was not a thing. By level 50+ I had a 2% rate of recruiting Ampharos, which was still pretty retarded, and level 50 is still way after Darkrai.
>>323060308 Yes. Its one of the best games out there. Grab it and kick ass. Just make sure to use items frequently and be prepared before any mission. Even early ones. >>323061210 >the main gameplay is grinding bullshit The hell? Since when do you need to grind in Mystery Dungeon game? PSMD doesn't require that at all. All you need to do is know how and when to properly use items. >not doing multiple missions at once >spoiling the story and thinking there's anything wrong with that Kirby shit The only thing you said that's true is that the beginning is extremely slow. >>323062409 Well I mean its still a better recruiting method than what we had before, which was random.
>>323066782 Also I just need to add to the list of replies telling >>323061210 to git gud. If anything I have been literally unable to grind so far (I haven't finished the story yet) because when the game tells you to do a story mission you're forced to do so immediately whether you want to or not. I consider that a flaw honestly, but the game is not grindy in any sense of the word.
