    I know that some of us in the USA imports certain games from Japan, but are there European games I should check out or do the not get exclusive games like they do in Japan?

    Yeah, that game's pretty cool. It takes some patience and an interest for that type of strategy game, but it's a pretty good one.

    I think Astrisk and Obelisk (did I spell that right?) is a European exclusive, as is Pet Alien. Pet Alien is a game I'm currently playing, and it's surprisingly good. If I had to label it, I'd say it was an action / puzzler.

    I wouldn't really call them "exclusive" they just arrive many months later in other countries. Not sure if there are any that won't be out elsewhere, things seem better than the GBA days.

    As for Europe titles, theres quite a lot that are out over here before US. Some are great like Picross DS & Brain Training 2, others are pretty damn bad.

    Nah that game won't come out on DS, it'll be delayed and then appear on the DS's successor.

    It was an interesting game for about 20 minutes, but then I got frustrated with it. It was one of the first games I put on my CycloDS when I got it. I had been curious about it for a while, and the fact that it didn't seem to be destined for a U.S. release made me all the more curious. But I can't say that it was all that fun.
