    There is nothing especially wrong about Denpa Man: the gameplay mechanic are OK, and as a dungeon crawler is not a bad one. But the lack of risk makes the game just 'another dungeon crawler' and not a pretty good one to recommend without doubts.

    The Denpa Men winks at the earlier Dragon Quest or Pokémon, but it's kinda out of place here and there. Filled with content, levels to grind and dungeons to beat, it might appeal nostalgic players looking for a truly challenging RPG.

    Still, it's a cheap RPG that is well worth the asking price.

    The Denpa Men could be considered "old school" in this way, a quality that may make the downloadable game an appealing distraction to some, but its surplus of unchanging RPG content drags on the novelty of the experience with time. Like any crayon, The Denpa Men quickly becomes dull.

Its the best example of how to pack a DL game. Great balance between longevity and gameplay for 8 bucks. I personally find amazing the way the party is managed, and the AR function to get new Denpa is great great great. Difficulty is on the wild side, but with some escercise the Denpa grow up strong, always leaving the battle on a high level anyway. One of the best 3DS games year 2012. Full Review »

    Get this game, get it now! Fun, silly and full of character(s). Well worth the price and then some. Great pick-up and play with quick action.Get this game, get it now! Fun, silly and full of character(s). Well worth the price and then some. Great pick-up and play with quick action. The choice between play styles makes this game a fit for anybody, with Dragon Quest 9 like battles. The denpa men themselves are not as diverse as other collection RPGs but they have more abilities and head/face-shapes then would be expected. Such a great time occupier. Full Review »
