    This is a game to play with friends. I'm giving it a 9 because it is a completely multiplayer experience and because the soundtrack and voice acting is very much sbpar, also the graphics are simplistic, but I, personally, find them charming. If you play this by yourself, you'll probably end up frustrated and yelling at the computer. If you play it with friends, you'll have the most funThis is a game to play with friends.

I am serious when I say I don't think I have ever had this much fun with a game. Much like Monopoly or Risk, it's a friendship destroyer, bu in the best of ways. There will be fun, and there will be backstabbing, which will also be fun when you change your friend's name in revenge. The game takes days to complete in story mode, but you can save anytime, so it works. I'm giving it a 9, but in sheer fun, its an 11, the perfect party game. Expand

    The computer is a cheating bastard. Computer getting whatever roll it needs 99% of the time? Check. Computer always performing the battle action that is best against yours? Check.

    Just like most of the other Atlus-published titles out there, it's hitting a smaller niche, but for those that it is aiming at (people that like RPGs, want a light, fun, multiplayer ode to the genre), it's a must-play.

    Dokapon Kingdom's perfectly balanced multiplayer, cool aesthetics and pure addictive fun make it a new high-water mark for party games on the Wii.
  3. Don't be fooled by Dokapon Kingdom's childish design: this unique board game-RPG crossover makes it hard not to enjoy yourself. [Dec 2008, p.100]
