    Away from you.
    This game really let me down. GAMEFREAK really screwed up on this one.

    First, they threw out all the good Pokemon (even the starters) and kept the Unova ones.
    Second, you don't starve anymore, only in a few dungeons after beating the story mode.(they knocked off that challenge :/ )
    Third, the big legends (Zekrom, Reshiram, Kyurem,etc.) cannot be recruited. I mean, it was disappointing enough to see all the Pokemon gone, and now this? I mean, why? This doesn't make any sense.
    It's also easy to level up, seeing as how Pokemon level up even when you don't use them in dungeons.
    The new paradise thing isn't even worth working on if there is no goal of some sort.

    I bought the game the day it came out, and I'm willing to go return it for something else this week. Is it really worth keeping or what? I pointed out a few flaws in the game, can somebody give me a few reasons to keep it? I would really love to hear some.

    Imho, this is by far the worse installment in the PMD series.

    Also, please suggest a few games worth getting.
    Thanks guys.

    P.S. PMD EOS ftw

    There's always luigi :], which is awesome, and monster hunter 3 ultimate, which i have sunk many hours in, but for monster hunter its way more fun to have friends locally to play with.

    Luigi has online play, so yeah if your a solo player go for luigi if you have local friends willing to get the game then go for monster hunter

    Gamefreak doesn't make the Mystery Dungeon games.

    Can't believe I'm saying this but I quite agree with IGN's 4.6 score. Played it with a friend, was a dissappointment.

    Please tell me the plot is good and leaves you crying at the end. I'll just die if the game isn't good enough to do that.

    Well I'm nine hours in, 3 out of 6 of the progress thingies filled in, and there is no plot. The closest thing is "We're exploring this place because we are explorers!"

    I'm pretty sure I'll just complete the game and then sell it in time to pre-order Soul Hackers.

    It's a waste of money, don't do it. It's not as challenging as the ds ones, and there is almost nothing to do after finishing story mode.

    Well, I can't say I wasn't expecting it to be bad, what with the terrible WiiWare Mystery Dungeons being as bad as they were.

    Yeah, I quite enjoyed the two others I've played, but this, this was depressingly boring despite the cool premise, there's just not enough in it. I would really, REALLY love a dungeon crawler to pick up and play. Randomly generated dungeon is pretty rad.

    That would be ChunSoft, the creators of the Mystery Dungeon series.
