    From the looks of it, almost every gripe from the original game is being addressed and corrected. I'm actually pretty optimistic about the sequel!

    Just wanted to bump to say that IGN gave this an 8:

    http://ds.ign.com/articles/917/917211p1.html

    They think it's a clear improvement upon the original and a worthy alternative to Pokemon! [​IMG]

    Hm...well, IGN giving it an 8 is a nice start, though I generally don't rely on them for my game scores.

    If it's a vast improvement over the original game, maybe.

    Well it's already out. I have played it and it seems to be good so far, lot's of errors from the first version have been fixed, the game system revamped. If you are interrested in such games, give it a try.
    Graphicwise it looks pretty good. It lacks voice acting but has quite a few animated cutscenes.

    OffTopic: I think it's funny how even Disney now tends to adopt to the Anime style. If I wouldn't read Disney in the Intro, and if the game had sum Japanese Names in it I am sure it could be mistaken for Japanese Production. =O

    Nope. It's terrible. They didn't even bother improving on the icon for crying out loud. Everything seems to be exactly the same. The dialogue is as boring as hell and there's way too much of it. Deleted it within 30 minutes of play [​IMG]

    I did play quite a lot (up until the actual battling started). Realised nothing was new :[

    I don't consider 30minutes a long time. I dont play it anymore too, but just because I don't like Pokemanz-styled games [​IMG]

    Don't compare experience by the time, compare it by the amount completed [​IMG]

    didn't like the first one. if they want to improve, they'll have to re-invent IMHO [​IMG]

    EVen though its 3D i prefer pokemon. real time battles is so boring. button mashing with A doesn't appeal me.

    well, i played it for about 2.5 hours yesterday.

    it is alot better.

    you dont even participate in the battles (you could only ever hit like 5 damage in the first one, that sucked...)

    you control one of your spectrobes, and the other one even has exceptional ai.

    whole incubation process is way easier to understand.

    it is alot easier to figure out what you need to do for a particular mission.

    you can dig up these little wonder ball type things that have like 6 minerals inside them =)


    if you didnt like the first one, because it was way too tedious, you should give this one a try.
