Sep 1, 2011This was my absolutely favorite RPG game on the DS... Until parts II & III came along. Those two add a lot to the game play, and refine the user interface and item collection management.
If not for its sequels, I'd give it a ten, which maybe it's not fair since I'm reviewing this game years after it came out.
I do recommend, however, to play the games in sequence, not because the story might be relevant (it has a minimum story line, which is one of its strengths), but because it is more fun to feel the progression of the series' design.
One thing that this first installment does have above its sequels, in my opinion: the character artwork is my favorite here!… Expand
