Whether playing for the first time or revisiting once again, Rescue Team DX delivers an amazing adventure that doesn’t end after the story has been beaten. The difficulty is right in the perfect spot that’s satisfying to overcome challenges, while being random and wild enough at times that some help might be needed. The art style and music making it worth hunkering down in one area to admire the surroundings, while each new area offers brand new surroundings to never get bored of. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX is on par with if not superior to the original in many ways, and offers the perfect kind of journey for players looking for the latest adventure in the world of Pokémon.
The true pokémon experience stands in this game, an amazing remake of already great game. The story is something you could never find in the original series. The gameplayis really solid and funny. Amazing OST and mechanics.
If you’re someone who has not played a Mystery Dungeon game before and are looking for a chill and passive dungeon-crawler to sit back and relax while listening to a podcast or watching a television show, this will work wonders for you. Just don’t expect a deep Pokemon RPG with meaningful progression or impressive visuals.
It's a game that feels very niche throughout, and that's because it is. Before this version give the artwork a big upgrade, on the DS the Mystery Dungeon games felt very much "indie title with a Pokémon skin on top", and was a sharp divergence away from what the core series was all about.
Rescue Team DX feels the same way, but much more polished visually and with some quality of life additions. Surprisingly, in many ways it's harder than the originals, whcih was a pleasant surprise for me.
The critics didn't understand the game when first released and don't understand it now, hence the mediocre reviews - it's not meant to be a 'Pokémon' game, it's a spinoff, and a very good one.
It's a hard game to explain, so I'd recommend trying the free demo before purchasing. If you like that, you'll like the final game. I'd also say try getting a physical copy second hand maybe, as the asking price is a bit too steep for what the game is.
