  1. By far, one of the best Inuyasha games you’ll play and one deeply engrossing role-playing game for your Nintendo DS.
  2. 60
    Strip away the license and it’s a by-the-numbers production – not irredeemably bad, but not remarkable enough to plow through for tens of hours.
  3. It's a decent enough RPG with dull turn-based combat, story integration and item-management conventions that were state-of-the-art in 1992. [Mar. 2007, p.88]
  4. This game is a shining example of what happens when a license is the only thing that sells a game.
  5. The resulting storyline isn't quite Final Fantasy quality by any means, but series devotees will find plenty to admire here. Still, given the constant interruption for battles and the heinous dungeon layouts, we suspect that none but the most devoted fans of the series will care.
  6. 40
    This game is an insult to fans of the series.
  7. This game fails miserably because of the unending random battles you encounter every few seconds. The simple task of walking from one place to another turns into an exercise in slow torture.
