Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX is a beautiful homage to the games that started the Rescue Team franchise.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX is a bit of a mixed bag. While it excels in keeping (and sometimes improving) the elements that fans adore from its predecessors, these same elements can result in a dated gameplay design. Newcomers that would have probably enjoyed the wonderful plot and presentation that earned the series its current reputation might be put off by the game’s archaic gameplay. Grindy combat and bland dungeons hold it back from reaching its fullest potential. It’s disappointing to say, but both Rescue Team DX and the Mystery Dungeon series as a whole require a bit more of leveling up before they truly amaze.

Mystery Dungeon DX gets the story right, but ultimately fails to deliver on everything else.

Pok'mon Mystery Dungeon DX is pleasant and cheery, but for every moment of depth there's an accompanying frustration.

"Dungeon crawling is getting old, but Pokemon have feelings too."

When I think of the positives, I find a game that is mechanically decent but presents an interesting narrative worth experiencing. For me, however, the dungeon exploring became stale very quickly, and I only forced my way through the game because of the plot line.

Great in sprints, but tedium might put off players looking for deeper experiences.

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon has good lessons to learn, but chief among them might be persistence: dungeon crawling is tiresome.

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon on Nintendo 3DS starts slow but proves itself to be the series' most complete package yet — perfect for fans and newcomers alike.
