  1. It's a very unique take on an RPG, and the Monopoly/Mario Party elements combine well to create something new.
  2. Here’s a little quiz: 1. Do you have three friends with DSs? 2. Are those friends RPG-savvy enough to know a Hit Point from an Item Shop? If you answered yes to both, then congratulations! You’re just a copy of Dokapon Journey away from having some of the most fun the DS can provide.

    Overall, Dokapon Journey is a refreshing game.

It's too complex to appeal to casual or young gamers, and at the same time, it's too basic an silly to appeal to mature gamers." This to me is the EXACT reason it IS appealing, I would come under their "mature players" umbrella, yet the simplicity to me, is the beauty of the game, It isn't an intense RPG with massively overpowered enemies, that will take you a long time to advance through. Yet it follows the formula, and as such presents itself as an easy bitsized (content-wise not time consumption-wise) RPG to play against friends when you have a bit of spare time. Which I find to be a positive thing, of course there are some aspects that are irksome, but I'm yet to play a perfect game, and I don't find them severe enough to detract from the overall experience.
