    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. Knowing what type of random event is on every space? Landing directly on the Darkling space every time? Getting a Contract the same turn they become eligible to do so every single time? Check. Check.

    Dokapon Kingdom is probably one of the best games to come out on the Wii. Very fun to play with friends, or solo (but I recommend with friends) - and it is a very very long party game.

    +: Very fun to play with friends and can be both a long game if you go through the story mode, or a single session game if you want something quick. Lots of replayability by changing character classes. Bonus: it has some real voiceovers instead of the heavily reused soundbites in Mario Party. -: Would have been nice to at least have the option of using the Wii pointer function, but not +: Very fun to play with friends and can be both a long game if you go through the story mode, or a single session game if you want something quick.

Hurrying through dialogs too quick tends to to re-trigger the same menu option, which is annoying. Expand

    Great game, except... No online multiplayer, there's no way I'm buying it. It takes so long to teach other people to play that I rarely get a chance to get into a game properly. If you had friends around regularly it would be good though. But man, if it had online the experience would be so much better. Hopefully they will bring out a sequel with some graphical improvements and Great game, except... No online multiplayer, there's no way I'm buying it.

Then I would not only but it but force all my friends too. Expand

    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.

    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]
