I just started this game last night, and I'm completely hooked on it. Actually, I'm really liking this genre. I can't believe in all my gaming years I never really played rogue-likes(or if I did I never realized it). So, I did a search here on this game, and it looks like it's pretty unpopular and not really liked. Why is this? So far I'm really liking the graphics, the characters, the writing, and the gameplay. Sure, the game can be kind of unforgiving. But once you get leveled up a few times it gets much easier. It does kind of suck that once you die in a dungeon you get kicked out, and lose all your money and items. So I guess that could be a reason why people don't like it. But I kinda think it's fun. Once you die and get kicked out you go through it again and raise a level or two. By the end of the first dungeon I was already at level 11. I never even tried this game because of the bad reviews it received. And usually I'm not the type that really pays attention to others opinions on a game. But for some reason I did with Izuna. So I'm really glad last night I gave the game a chance. So what am I not seeing that has made this game so not liked? Also, what are some other rogue-likes on the DS that I might like? I already know about Shiren and the new Pokemon. Are there any others? Thanks for any opinions and recommendations.
