    For a game that requires you to bang around and knocking into enemies or allies alike, this game did it bad. It is not the childish game play that I am complaining about, even though I don't like a single bit of it, but it is that nonsensical plot that I find gruesome. If its not for the still legible graphics, It wont recieve one single point from me.

    I don't get it, either. My only dilemna is whether to pass it along to another DS owner as a cruel joke, or sell it on an auction site. The game starts with a very uninvolved 'setup' phase, and doesn't seem to get much better from there. It's possible that things turn around once you've dumped a few hours into it, but my patience wore thin after the firstI don't get it, either.

Unless you enjoy punishing yourself for your own wrongdoings, pass on this one. Expand

    I honestly don't get it and am truely disappointed. From so many glowing reviews, I was sure I would have a good time, not spend all my time reading text and stacking people on my head, and stretching like a slingshot. I've really tried to get into this game, but it bores me to death, and it's the only DS game I own I actually regret buying.

  1. A great game that might not be pushing the DS visually, yet it's filled with great gameplay featuring deep tank battles and fast-paced action sections. No doubt, it will put a smile on your face for the ten hours or so that it lasts. [JPN Import]
  2. Multicard two-player tank battles and single-card download demos round out a well-placed and satisfying adventure. [Oct. 2006, p.86]
  3. Rocket Slime is that rarest of breeds: a kid's game that completely rocks. [Oct. 2006, p.118]
