    I was just wandering if any you kind people have heard of any playable Import(I hope this is the right term for not released in US/EUR) games that are understandable or easily playable by anyone without any Japanese understanding. I apologize if this question has been asked before. Thank you

    Well, You could try Jump Ultimate Stars! +_+

    It has a translation patch. It translates 95%?

    A Must PLAY! [​IMG]

    Thank you for your answer, but I must apologize for not detailing my post. I know about the translations and just want to know about imports.

    I did enjoy Jump though [​IMG]

    Lode Runner DS is on my cart forever since it's small and the only Japanese are in the menus. Here's even a menu translation website for you: http://www.ntsc-uk.com/feature.php?feature...ea=LoderunnerDS

    The game does feature a create your own level feature for unlimited fun.

    Space Invaders Extreme 2 is almost entirely in English. I might not even replace the Japanese rom with the English one when it comes out.

    Space Puzzle Bobble is pretty understandable, though the English version comes out next month.

    There are quite a few European games with English in them that are import only, too:
    Boulderdash Rocks
    Chrono Twins
    Great Giana Sisters
    Spectral Force Genesis

    Oh, one I forgot that you absolutely must play:

    Bomberman 2

    For some reason in America we get the stupid Bomberman Touch series. In Europe they get an ultra cool Bomberman sequel that includes unlockable body parts to make your own Bomberman with special abilities. It's the best Bomberman ever made and it's only import.

    Some great writer on the internet that's totally not me *cough* reviewed it on his blog:

    Chronos Twin has one of the worst English translations I've ever seen in a video game. So many spelling, grammatical, and lexical errors that it's simply hilarious.

    Chronos Twins is definitely a thrown back to 8-bit NES games. You almost expect to here SOMEONE HAS SET US UP THE BOMB while playing it.

    I think it adds to the retro charm. The game was made on a shoestring budget for the GBA and ported to the DS at the last second and graphically it does show. So having the translation add to it makes for a delicious B-movie sandwich.
