Wow, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon sure has gotten better

#1melchiahdimPosted 3/9/2013 2:13:51 AM
I bought the original Pokemon Mystery Dungeon on DS back when when it came out (preordered it and everything), and for reasons I honestly can't remember I hated it. It was one if the biggest disappointments I've had as a gamer. So since then I've avoided the games even though my brother is a big fan.

But with the demo being released, I thought I may as well give it a shot. And I've got to admit, so far I'm enjoying it! I can't really say what has changed to make me enjoy it, but I may just give some of the older games a shot.

Considering the new PMD's story is mediocre in comparison to its predecessors, not really.

PMD2's story is the reason it's the best Pokemon game.

So the new one really doesn't compare to the Explorers story? That's a real shame, at this point, story was the only reason I was gonna consider buying Gates.

Well, I've played the Japanese version, and let's just say it lacks the plot twists and overall impact that PMD2's story had. It's a shame, yes, but the game is still enjoyable.

Like I said, I don't know. I don't remember exactly what I didn't like about the original, and never played the sequel. Which is why I feel like I should give it another chance.

I'm thinking if I should buy too. I really love PMD2's story for its depth and was afraid this one couldn't match it. Maybe I'll try the demo and decide.

Yeah that's what I had heard as well. Slightly better than the first but worst than the second.
