    A great game that repeats the same mistake of previous entries: it takes too long to appreciate its full potential, so at first it might not seem as appealing as it really is.

    The first Inazuma Eleven to be launched on 3DS is also one of the best chapters of the franchise we've played so far. The new graphics-engine and the new gameplay features make GO a whole new experience that's worth buying.

    The clever mix of standard RPG adventure with an intriguing football-based storyline and innovative battle system - in the form of tactical stylus-controlled football matches - makes this one of the most unique games not only on 3DS, but on any system right now.

    If you enjoyed the previous episodes, you'll probably enjoy this one as well. Good gameplay and interesting additions, and also a quite friendly introductions for those new to the series.

    Inazuma Eleven Go, in his Light or Shadow version, reveals a good use of 3DS potential and is as one of the most relevant options in the series.

    Those who weren't fans of the previous games are unlikely to see anything in Inazuma Eleven GO that'll change their minds, but fans who getting a little tired of the original cast and systems should find that the game once more successfully injects its winning combination of charm and bonkers.

    Bad storytelling, an unfocused plot and horrible voice acting puts Inazuma Eleven GO in a bad light. And the inclusion of Fighting spirits makes the game on the pitch seem a bit unbalanced. But there’s a real incentive for recruiting and leveling new players and discovering moves and abilities. An interesting mix of football and RPG that could have been much better if executed with a bit more flair.

    Inazuma Eleven GO Sombra/Luz tiene todas las papeletas para convertirse en el Inazuma Eleven definitivo, pero esto no puede ser así porque aún nos quedan varias entregas del mismo por recibir aquí en Europa y todo fan sabe lo que hay en dichas versiones lanzadas en Japón. Cumple con su cometido y es una obra especialmente dedicada para todo fan de la serie y uno de los imprescindibles del catálogo de 3DS. Pero si eres un amante al fútbol y a los RPG no deberías de perderte esta serie ya que está ambientada para cualquier tipo de público. Tanto principiante como para los más aventurados en el género.

    Just finished this Soccer Simulation RPG. I must say that it definitely has improved graphics than the previous series, since this is the first game of Inazuma on the next gen handheld. Well 10 years after Endou Mamoru and Inazuma Japan win the tournament, Soccer becomes very famous. But behind that, every match was being controlled by a group called Fifth Sector. They decide who win and who lose and also the score. Matsukaze Tenma, a first year in Raimon Junior High, has been longing to join the soccer team. But the reality is that soccer isn't something "fun" anymore. We'll see how Tenma return soccer to it's original form.

    Plus point:
    - Improved graphics, the game is very beautiful. This is the first game in the series to be released on 3DS. The 3D works too, and it works beautifully. Love it.
    - Pretty decent story and great ost. Well the story is pretty much decent though, and if you play the previous series, you'll see some returning characters in their adult version. Also after you finished the game, you'll get a piece of story regarding the movie of Inazuma Eleven GO. The battle in God Eden against Hakuryuu. So, i guess it's pretty complete.

    Minus point:
    - Not so many skills anymore. Comparing to the previous game, every characters other than the main one, pretty much has the same set of skills and that makes them boring. I barely used the supporting characters. Also the recruiting system has changed. Sometimes to get who you want, you need to went through a bunch of condition first, which is annoying.

    After all, it's a good game. I give it 8/10.
