This is disappointing. Pretty much everyone is giving this game a score around 5 or 6. I was really hoping it'd be a decent game for my 3DS, but that's one flagship title I'm going to have to skip.

Great review, which outlines the design problems with this game.

Thanks for reading, Jerec. This review took some time to pull together, and I reorganized things a bit from how they were originally set up, too. It just didn't want to let me write it! I hated having to give the game a score as low as I did, too, because I wanted the game to be awesome... but it really wasn't. I would probably recommend picking it up once/if the price drops, but for now it's probably best avoided (as noted in the review). I'm glad I was able to cover all the bases the way I did. The review is longer than I intended, but I don't feel like it dragged. I'm pretty happy with it overall, after all the work that went into it, and I'm glad you found it helpful.

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto
