  1. I’m confident that you’ll eventually grow weary of the repetitious dungeon crawling.

    Being a hardcore Pokemaniac, it really hurts to see yet another Pokemon game succumb to mediocrity.
  3. Simply put, this game is bad and I hate it. [Nov. 2006, p.140]
  4. The game is a rapidly wearisome, dull dungeon crawling adventure with repetitive maps, dialogue and gameplay.
  5. Blue Rescue Team lacks most of the content that made Pokemon so popular in the first place. Instead, it features the ancient failings of Roguelike games, including dungeon restarts, level grinding and no versus play. Frankly, we’d rather catch a cold.

    A great game! A wide variety of Pokemon that you can have on your team, a fun story, fun side-stories, lots of places to explore! It's challenging enough to keep you busy and entertained, but not so challenging that you get angry and frustrated and give up. I honestly cannot think of any ways this game could have been made better. Heavily recommended! Full Review »

    This game is perfect for anyone who loves adventures, and especially mysteries. This game is based on partnership, where you and your partner try to save the world, and perhaps even others. Full Review »
