    The lesson here is that just because the license is for kids, the game doesn't have to be. There's a reason this sort of gameplay has been around for over 25 years: it works, whether you're a green squirrel or an @. And Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is the game to prove it.

    It may confuse some and frustrate others, but its addictive nature should keep you hooked until you learn to appreciate the art of the dungeon crawl.

    While Nintendo DS owners may feel cheated at the poor second screen features, or may even feel violated by the graphics on their system compared to what they've come to expect, GBA owners can feel safe in the knowledge that this is one of the best looking on their system and that only one good screen, which is what the GBA possesses, is really needed to fully enjoy the gameplay.

    The Mystery Dungeon games are definitely different than most Pokémon games, and there's fun to be had with them, but there are still a lot of better games available on the GBA, which makes Red Rescue Team difficult to recommend.
  5. 65
    It drags on and on without much change, which is why it's a good thing it's been structured in segments for quick-shot, handheld-friendly dungeon exploration.
  6. While ploughing through the dungeons becomes repetitive, following your character's evolution and steady growth in skills becomes addictive.
  7. The game is a rapidly wearisome, dull dungeon crawling adventure with repetitive maps, dialogue and gameplay.

    De lo mejor en GBA, sigo sin creer que un juego así corra en una consola con esas limitaciones.

    * No es un postgame clásico de pocas horas y algo repetitivo, es bastante largo y con muchas historias relacionadas entre sí que son bastante divertidas y más complejas que la historia principal.
