    Not sure if anyone submitted it but this is pretty old news.

    The first game was decent though so I'll be sure to give this a try when it comes out.

    hear hear, i got the first game for free from nintendo stars catalogue but sold it for cash, i didn't even open it, complete rip from pokemon imo, and they have a nerve to make a sequel for this terrible game [​IMG]

    The first one made my eyes bleed..it was a terrible game and yet they are making another. I hope this one turns out better than the first.

    I couldn't play the first one for more than 5 minutes. I hated it.
    If you really want something fun go and play some DQM: Joker.
    This doesn't deserve a sequel.

    What made Spectrobes particularly bad, in my mind, was that you could see where they were going with it, when they designed it on paper, but that the development team has obviously not been to all the design meetings ...

    Plus, that whole card thing, with the original version looked like a really cheap move ...

    I never played the 1st one but I was planning on giving it a try. The screenshots just sort of drew me in and I keep thinking of it whenever I leave the store after visiting the gaming section.

    Can't wait to dig up more fossils. Now that, right there, is exactly why the DS has a touchscreen. For digging up fossils.

    Diggin up Fossils = Boring
    Battles = Boring > Just run around, and when the bar fills, super attack.
    Graphics = Nice, but you can't see 2 meters ahead of you
    NO WORLDMAP GARR...maps looked plain too...

    It's a terminology used commonly by the homophobic.

    Despite how bad it may or may not be, the first Spectrobes is a best seller for the DS (over a million copies) so there's no real question why they would want to duplicate that success.

    The first one was hopeless... battle got crap after going into about 4 of them.. and the card feature is stupid, u can just print it out or estimate the dots and get a super strong creature, and breeze through the whole game, wth? BUT...downloadable content is awesome feature =D
    Hope they learnt from the mistakes, but its disney..prob gonna still be shit childish
