    Are there any hack and slash type games on the NDS? Other than the Castlevania games (aka Metroidvania). Looking for studd like dynatasy warriors 4/5/6 on ps2 type stuff, cept on a smaller scale. Sidescrolling is fine.

    Naw I hate games that use the stylus for control, its totally akward. From what I read of the review I wouldn't touch it. I just find the stylus a pain in the ass to use. Its for this reason I got a x360 over a Wii.

    Not side scrolling, but top down, Children of Mana is a fantastic hack and slash dungeon romp.

    Also, you might like some of the Naruto side scrolling platformers, I think there are 2 or 3 of them.

    Cool i'll get those, I already tried children of mana and like it, what other games are simmlar? I know of Final fantasy crystal chronicles (both of em on the nds) I think Heroes of mana is another.

    I think he would probably prefer a game he can understand. [​IMG]

    Hrm.. Summon Nights is a good one, but again uses stylus for control. I find stylus control can work in H&S, you should give it a chance.

    i think there is a dynasty warrior on the DS as well.

    as for hack and slash, hmm, there was a pirate game in japan, destiny something something, u can have a look at that

    Final Fantasy crystal chronicles: echo of time and ring of fate on the DS

    and the rest, i don remember, but soma bringer is pretty fun as well.

    Hmm, when I think of hack and slash games I think of games like Golden Axe, so I was going to suggest Pirates of the Carribean. Maybe the definition has changed!

    No, there will be just 4 characters to use. But only one story. But the story shows how much Yuri grows. And the bonds of family. And preseverance. And friendship. And belief. And.... [​IMG]

    I'll like to add. But the whole FFCC is really. Great. Though i can highlight one thing, RoF has a good story while EoT has good wifi play. So EoT has more replayability IMO. And thats what hack n'slash is for, just hacking and slashing. [​IMG]

    DESTINY LINKS is what you're talkin' about. [​IMG]
    It's only available in JP at the moment though.

    Here are some that I've played: (most are not really h&s)
    ~Steal Princess (more of a puzzle game)
    ~FFCC: Echoes of Time \ Ring of Fates
    ~Elebits - (Kinda)
    ~Rune Factory
    ~From The Abyss
    ~Summon Night - Twin Age
    ~Zelda Phantom Hourglass
