Overall, the game is fantastic. It’s fun for solo play and is even better when working in co-op. I’ve poured hours into the game and have still not completed every possible task available. There’s so much replayability and it’ll have you craving for more Yo-kai madness… or maybe a Yo-kai is making you think that. Regardless, the game is definitely fantastic and I’d highly recommend adding it to your 3DS’s library.
While its rinse and repeat Diablo-lite gameplay can get a little repetitive after extended play, there’s no denying how much fun it is to return to the world of Yo-kai Watch. Whether playing solo or via local or online co-op, Level-5 has taken all the hallmarks of the series and made it even more accessible to newcomers and seasoned monster hunters. A fine way to see off the series on 3DS, and proof the Yo-Kai series is strong enough to tweak its formula with a spin-off and still maintain that quintessential Japanese magic.
Each of the ten chapters has a storyline that somewhat overlaps with numerical Yo-Kai’s. But whatever the plot reason is, in the end you’ll find yourself plowing through enemies using the same two basic attacks. It’s a grind game, plain and simple – and an uninspired one at that. [Issue#234, p.58]
El juego tiene un historia un tanto simple y una jugabilidad que a pesar de también tener un carácter bastante simple resulta bastante entretenida (contando con el añadido de la dificultad que tiene de por sí el juego que para mi lo hace aún más entretenido), pero es algo mejorable.
Sobre el final del juego, llegas a un punto en el que para conseguir los objetos y los orbes oni que necesitas requiere horas y horas de farméo, lo cuál no sería un punto negativo de no ser porque al llegar a el punto del juego que he mencionado antes, la IA de tus compañeros termina siéndote poco útil en combate y termina siendo mas recomendable el jugar con gente online... pero vamos que si no tienes gente con la que jugar, juegas con los bots de tu equipo (que seguramente te molesten mas de lo que te vayan a ayudar) y solucionado.
Por lo demás el juego me encanta,, es uno de los juegos a los que mas he jugado en toda mi vida y a los que mas sigo jugando a día de hoy.
I was going to rate this game favorably. The story is basic, the combat is basic, but the fact that it's hard can be fun, until you get into the post game. At that point your AI allies become useless, you can't get enough Oni orbs to level anyone up without grinding for hours on your own, and trying to battle with people online is mess. If you are too low compared to others ranks, you get booted almost right away, and when you get in a room with people in a similar rank, they try to do missions they can't accomplish, and so you end up wasting time. The post-game content is easily the most inaccessible in the series so far, and the fact that there is such a huge climb to try and get to it, ruins the entire experience, which is already average anyways. There should have been a way to get enough Oni orbs through QR codes, passwords or anything, but pretty much all you get are coins. The grind ends up feeling like a mobile game kind of grind, without the option to speed it up. It's not fun, at all.
SummaryTake down enemy Yo-kai and Big Bosses using skills and Soultimate Moves with up to 3 other friends. As you tackle missions, befriend new Yo-kai to amplify your team's awesomeness. Train with Sgt. Burly to become the strongest Blasters team there is! As you complete missions, gather Oni Orbs and items to level up or forge equipment to pow...
