I'm not allowed to play Poke'mon because it's evil, so I thought, "Hey! Why not try this out?"
It was far from just a PM rip-off, however. I loved it, although it did get frustrating and very tedious at some points (Remember the Sun and Moon Temples?). A great game, but still could've done better in certain areas.



Some of the graphics could really put you in the mood, and look great at a distance (which is another cool thing about this game; "realistic vision", or being able to see stuff realisticly, like when you're up high and can see that slime on the beach). However, when you, with the wierd camera that sometimes zooms in when you rotate, inspect ithem closely, it becomes a pixelated mess. Take the fire around the Xeroph Arena and the trees in Infant, for example.
Still, pretty great, and it's not like we could do better.



Some of the sound effects were good, I'll give it that.
But the music...well, it was good about the first few times you hear the same song. Nothing changes. The only Islands that have different daytime music are Domus and Infern. The battle music changed, and the non-standard ones (the ones were you fight "wild" monsters) were pretty catchy.
If the music had more variety, maybe I would've rated it higher.



It would've gotten a 9, but the Sun and Moon Temples brought it down.
The gameplay in itself was awesome. Fight, tame, award new skills to, synthesise, and, coolest of all, control the Incarnus, and even turn into 1 of 5 adult variations once you reach a certain point.
Although rather tedious and sometimes frustrating, it still managed to come out a fairly decent game.



If "lastability" means replay value, then 10 out of 10.
There'll always be a reason to keep playing. Training, synthesising, exploring, progressing, even Wi-Fi battles. You may find yourself training your Dragovian Lord to beat that boss you've been having trouble with, or show off to your friends.
The Wildcard World Cup was a pretty cool thing, too.
What's not to like about a world-wide tournament?



Good storyline, which you didn't have to follow that much, anyway. You could totally stray from it until you're ready. Good graphics, unless you get a monocle and inspect the screen.
But alas, this game bears a heavy burden; the music. Ah, well. You don't have to listen to it, anyway, seeing as this is a text-based game.
Throw cool features in the bunch, and you've got yourself and 8 out of 10.

Final Score: 74%
