    After just a few days out its my favorite DS game ever and I would argue its one of the best, if not the best DS game ever.

    You just don't get that many full 3D roaming adventure games on the DS that aren't RPGs.

    And the combat is much faster with the stylus, its gorgeous as hell, adorable, sounds epic with headphones and uch more about it I forget.

    So how many don't like it? :'o

    I haven't tried it yet but can I ask something too? How is the Japanese? Is it easy to understand? Is it a long story mode or is it short? What are a few good features about it?

    It's a pretty good game, but I wouldn't call it the best DS game ever. The graphics are lovely, the gameplay is fluid, the music perfectly fits the game, etc. Too bad the story doesn't take that long to finish (only a little over 10 hours).

    I like how they speak animalese though. Makes the game sound cute.

    Yeah, you won't understand any of the story (obviously), but it's not really necessary if you simply plan on enjoying the game as it is.

    Well theres not a big language barrier, its fairly easy to get around and figure your next destination.
    Its roughly 14-15 hours from Start to Credits, if you skip all the scenes (In which case I did as I plan to play it again in English).

    Some good features are the stylus letting you solve and attack faster than ever before.

    Its also a full 3D roaming/adventure game, and if you're familiar with most the roms on DS, its kind of a rare thing.

    It does something else rare on DS, and thats it feels like a console experience. It can be compared to Mario 64 DS or Kingdom Hearts Days but with more freedom.

    I would argue though that its a tad too easy, having not died once.

    My words don't do the game justice. Its just too awesome.

    Being unable to speak or read Japanese, I can't really say so.

    I truly believe, a good game needs a good story..I don't understand Japanese, so I can't say it's amazing

    You can't say New Super Mario Bros or Space Invaders Extreme are only good because of their "stories"

    Saying a great game is only good because of "story" is something a RPG players says. Have you ever played a game thats just fun to play because its fun, and not because of drama?

    I know I've enjoyed plenty games out there where I didn't need a fancy shmancy story.

    Also just saying for sake of argument with other peopl, Ocarina of Time's story suuuuuucked.
