Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon
"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.
There's loads to do but it's all too samey
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.
The best entry in the series, but very far from being super – as the excitement of discovery is replaced with the drudgery of repetition.
Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is a very welcomed addition to the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon world. Its marvelous visual portraying, a staggering set of 720 Pokémon available and its very long lifespan will be cherished by fans of the series, despite its dialogues and plot being perhaps too much to handle for less committed followers.

Despite a glacial start, Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon is a more challenging take on the popular sub-franchise. It may have some flaws, but the massive and ambitious online component makes for a fine introduction to a different side of Pokemon.
Despite some mild improvements over the last entry in the series, Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is a bland and uninspiring slog that is unlikely to please anyone but the most ardent of fans. 3DS owners would be far better served waiting for the remastered versions of Pokemon Red and Blue than touching this with anything but the longest of barge poles.
