Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky Review :

Great Game. Period.

Everyone knows Pokemon, right? Those powerful (or cute, depending on specific Pokemon) creatures that sadly have a language that humans cannot translate? Well, if you haven't played a Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game before, you should look at this. A game where you get to be a Pokemon that can talk and communicate with other Pokemon! Though you probably already knew that, otherwise you may not have even been looking at this review. Anyway, this a unique game, unlike most RPGs out there, considering you get to be one of the wild monsters you encounter in this game. You'll find yourself interested to find out the next part of the story, and it doesn't get boring easily. Leveling up is sometimes a pain, but it won't be too much trouble. Getting Pokemon to join your team has gotten easier (or rather, more economically friendly). No more buying and using up Pokeballs in efforts to get Pokemon (Pokemon throwing Pokeballs at other Pokemon would be rather silly) . You simply need to impress the Pokemon (defeat the Pokemon and pray to whatever holy force you believe in that it will want to join your team). This game even has a little more story line after you beat the main part.

8Story line
The storyline hasn't changed much from Time and Darkness, Sky's predecessors. And if you have the Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team Games, you'll realize how similar the outlines are for both Mystery Dungeon Series. However, you'll find that you'll be busy with the storyline at most parts of the game.
The graphics haven't changed at all throughout the Mystery Dungeon games, but they're certainly nothing bad. They could be better, but they don't desperately need improvement.
There's not much music here that's memorable, but the game doesn't focus on sound. Mostly adequate, there are few parts that I liked.
Being the Pokemon itself instead of a trainer, you get a new perspective of things. The game is turned based, but it's definetlely unique compared to others. It's a nice break from the usual Pokemon games, and items and money seem more important to succeed in this game.
8Lasting Appeal
Mixed feelings here. I was disappointed when you reach the end of the whole storyline. The game is still fun, but it's not the same without a story to follow. I admit though, it was pretty good while it lasted, and there are still a few things to do. This game is worth getting.
