    The gameplay is multilayered, the storyline is deep and the overall presentation is the most polished we've seen in a long while.
  2. The stylus is used to direct your craft and also to target the enemy. It requires some practice, but it's a great addition to the gameplay.
  3. Boktai DS is a fun little ARPG presented in pretty much the same fashion as the previous GBA games but, with the introduction of the new weather and team system, the game has added depth to it. [JPN Import]

    Lunar Knights retains a lot of the elements that made the Boktai experience so much fun, and opened things up by taking out the sun sensor that essentially tied a hand behind gamers' backs.
  5. Sure, leveling up and collecting new items requires nothing more than going through the motions for seasoned gamers. But any title that can throw in as many new systems and nail the core gameplay as well as Lunar Knights does has a spot waiting for it in my library.
  6. There's a good balance between the action and RPG elements, and the subtle depth of the battle system is aided by quick weapon selection. Plus, the final dungeon shows that the new dual-character system has some potential for cooperative play in the future.
  7. The gameplay and story aren’t completely original and short. The game does look great and the soundtrack is extraordinary.

    This is one heck of an experience. Once it starts, you can't put Lunar Knights down.

    It's a bit short, but the story is actually alright. I found it a bit hard too, which made me not want to play it again.

    Boring, boring, boring. Sparse level design, awkward controls, mindless combat. I couldn't make it past the nine hour mark. Beautiful, but dull.
