  • Summary: From a very young age, the human girl Reiha displayed great aptitude for the magical art of Summoning. While still a child, her powers caused a terrible accident during a major Summoning experiment. It was reported that Reiha had died as result, but she survived, along with a young Summon Beast named Aldo that had been pulled into her world. Following the accident, the two children grew up together as brother and sister on the tropical island of Jarazi, among a race of people with beast-like features. There they learned to commune with the Nature Spirits that surrounded them. One day, the Spirits began acting strangely, prompting Reiha and Aldo to investigate. Their quest to find out who or what is behind the corruption of the Spirits will lead them back to the human lands where the cataclysm first brought them together. [Atlus USA] Collapse

  1. A fun, deep, and lengthy action-RPG that’s perfectly suited to the DS. The myriad customization options keep things fresh and add replay value, and the story impresses with its writing and presentation.
  2. While it's clothed in a generic fantasy package, the gameplay stands out, as you use the DS' stylus to guide your characters through a variety of terrain and inflict massive damage on scores of enemies.
  3. A 20 hour adventure with branching paths, side quests, and a deep battle system. What's not to like?
  4. It was one of the better DS RPGs I've played, and stayed in my system for quite a while.
  5. Summon Night: Twin Age isn't going to set the world on fire. However, if the world happens to already be on fire, you might find yourself just distracted enough by this game that you won't notice the flames until your dog comes in bald and smouldering.
  6. There are worse things out there than grinding levels, and Twin Age controls better than most DS games in the genre. [June 2008, p.101]

    Its core mechanics are sound, if inexpertly presented, and the further you advance into the story, the more the level designs open up.
