    When i mean turn based RPGs i mean like FF style, pick fight, and the selected character attacks. Is there any good one's out there?
    I've played:
    FFIV
    FFIII
    DQM:J

    Thanks in advance

    try DQ 4 with 'translation cheat'.
    its one of the best turn based rpg's i've played on the ds so far.
    you also might like izuna and shiren the wanderer. these games are not rpg's, but turn based : )

    i liked Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. also if Pokemon Diamond/Pearl is considered turn based, then that too.

    Magical Starsign.
    It's OK. Not bad.

    Etrian Odyssey 1/2. They have this old PC RPG type of dungeons, but the battles are turn-based and yet fun.

    If you read Japanese, Dragon Quest 5 is really well re-made. I personally prefer this kind of remake over Final Fantasy remakes on DS.

    I'm loving Etrian Odyssey 2 so far, it's really awesome. Making your own maps is surprisingly fun [​IMG]

    Maybe, Summon Night I and II is quite fun too, but lacking in language, it's japaneese...

    I don't think any of the Summon Night games were ever turn-based. Even the GBA ones were real-time, with a sort of Tales of Phantasia approach. The new DS one is kind of like a Children of Mana approach, but with stylus control.

    Probably my favorite turn-based RPG on DS is Joker, though it looks like you (TC) have it listed as one you've already played. FFIII is great, too.

    Sonic Chronicles will have turn based combat but it has yet to be released. Otherwise all mentioned above but I have to mention, that you should stay away from Lunar DS [​IMG]

    Mainstream Summon Nights are SRPGs, technically turn based. Swordcraft stories and Twin Age are spinoffs.
    But I don't think TC is looking for SRPG anyway. And yeah DQM:Joker is a good game. I beat it three times over each time starting from a new save.
