This wasn't as spectacular as its sequel, but for a starting place and home base for the series to work outward from, it was pretty strong. Any mystery dungeon is better than no mystery dungeon and this sure was some mystery dungeon gameplay, with things not really getting difficult or engaging until the final dungeon's lengthy climb skyward.

The story was present and written decently, if pitched ... well, a bit young. (Yes, in this children's monster collecting game. I know.) There were still a couple of times where I was like "Oh my gosh you're flashing back to STUFF THAT JUST HAPPENED" but that's one problem that got WAY worse in the sequel, so things flowed very smoothly here.

Mostly I feel sad I never developed any strong emotional connections here. I just wasn't feeling anything. This is unlikely to show up in the end of the year awards, I'm afraid.

Does make me look forward to Super Mystery Dungeon though.
