Urgh initial reviews are confirming my worries for this game (being dumbed down)

Reviews say you get way more stickers than you'll even need to use.

I don't find that very challenging at all.

You get way more stickers than you need yet reviewers who graded it low complained that they felt like they had to horde stickers maybe the point of so many stickers were to encourage having fun battling not to say here are a lot of stickers you wont need because your hording mentality makes you think every sticker is your preciiiiooouuusssss. My opinion of course

Well, already knew I would be disappointed with SS from the moment I heard there were no levels. Still getting the game, but it shall never ever be as good as the first two. Guess I have to wait till the Wii U version to see if the series is still worth following.

Oh boohoo, it's not a PM or TTYD rehash. So what?

So having 80% of the core mechanics back = Rehash? No one is asking for a rehash anyway, but a true sequel like TTYD was.

I would explain, but if you don't get it in the first place, then why bother.

Exactly. No one calls TTYD a rehashed game, so why would this game be a rehash for keeping it's core elements guys?
I mean, APPARENTLY they had ideas for partners AND stickers if those old beta pics are any indication.

I could see if this game had Rougeport, the same partners, a slighty different story and maybe 5-10 badges added. THAT would be a rehash.

Bleh, it still could have been deep battle-wise without levels. But then no partners...no badges...lol...all went downhill.

Sorry, no. No levels, means almost no joy in the game for me. I love leveling up. That is the reason why I even play RPGs.

Please, all I see is a different game. I don't see how they dumbed down anything when so much is different.

That's like saying an apple is a dumbed down orange.
