Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Force is a new spin-off in the famed Pokemon franchise. Its a game that has been given to the gamers to while away their time before the actual Pokemon games- Pearl and Diamond- come out. But, how does the game fare? Just how good is it?



The game has fairly good graphics for a GBA game. To be precise, it doesnt push it's hardware limits, and therefore remains a 16 bit 2D game. Thank God for it! For the Pokemon in this game look so cute and adorable, even the meanest Pokemon hater will fall in love with the graphics in this game. However, there are problems- One, the dungeon map obstructs view. Two, the graphics are repititive. Three, the details are often hidden, making it tough to play or fight.



The sound of this game is fairly nice. A nice blend of eerie and cute, the sound however, tends to repeat itself throughout the game. Probably, at the beginning, one might like the sounds, but as the game progresses, you get bored and might turn off the sound to save your ears from the monotony and the battery.



The gameplay in this game is- pathetic! On paper, the idea of a non turn based, on the screen battle Pokemon game might seem to be good, but it isnt. The game features two types of attacks- physical, which can be used by pressing the A button, and Special, which can be accesed by opening up a special menu by pressing the B button. And here's the problem: keep jamming your finger into the B button, and the menu still won't open, and before you know it, you've fainted and are out of the dungeon. Bleah.



Now here's where the game scores. For all it's faults, the game is still over twenty hours long, and you never get bored. Okay, you are never as absorbed in it as you would be in a 'true' Pokemon game, but still, you are genuinly interested in the game. Plus the fact that the dungeons are randomly generated i.e, they are different each time you enter, makes it better. And if not for anything else, you'll play the game over and over, over and over, just to see the adorable characters.



So, we reach the end of this review, and you've got a fair idea of what the game is like. Its a good game, actually. Not worth the 100 bucks they're charging us for, but still. You might as well play it on an emulator. The game is good, and should be with all true Pokemaniacs, cause it definitely isnt a repeat of Pokemon Dash or Pokemon Stadium.

FINAL VERDICT: A decent game, but nowhere near the true Pokemon experience. Get it as a nice addition to your GBA/DS collection, though.

Final Score: 64%
