Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team


What would you do if you were mysteriously transformed into a Pokemon? Why, form a rescue team, of course! That's the premise behind Nintendo's latest DS title, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team, an action RPG where you scour the globe searching for friendly critters in distress. It's a novel concept and I like the game, but I can't play it for long periods. Wandering through randomly generated dungeons picking fights with enemies and collecting items is pretty cool, but there's a very limited amount of scenery and I'm not that impressed with the gameplay, which rarely excites. But this is far and away the best Pokemon DS game out there. It's just not the full-fledged sequel that I'm still anticipating.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
