  1. Such games are rare, and I consider Contact to be a triumph of development. But, putting aside my assessment of its artistic merit, Contact is really just a fun, engaging RPG that Nintendo DS owners have been waiting for ever since the system was released.
  2. It feels postmodern and classic all in the same heartbeat. [Oct. 2006, p.62]
  3. Contact is one of the most imaginative game concepts yet on the DS and fortunately for us all there is a deep and satisfying role-playing gameplay system to back up that concept and make it a thoroughly enjoyable and long-lasting adventure.
  4. The beats are creative and the music will stick in your head for days. [JPN Import]
  5. It's got a gripping story, simple combat system and uses the dual screens in inventive ways. Highly recommended. [Dec 2006, p.92]

    I am not done with the game yet, but I find it, so far, to be very, very good.

Evry time I turn it off, I just can't wait to play again. When I play other games, (not Contact), I feel as if I should stop playing these games, and only play Contact. This is by far the best DS game I have ever played! I would suggest it to ANYONE!!! Full Review »

    This game is great. It perfects the RPG reward system, as well as the game-play formula for the RPG.

    This game is great. It perfects the RPG reward system, as well as the game-play formula for the RPG.

    It's a unique game. The level-up system is definitely done well, and quite well done. The level design could be a little more complex, the immersion is good, the graphics design is quite unique, and the game-play is based on a unique aspect. Costumes. No, I don't mean costumes from Party City. Suits would be a better term. They give abilities that can be leveled up. I can see the time put into this game. A good 95/100.
