1UP reviews Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer

Shiren isn't a game for everyone. It's far more demanding than its fellow DS-based roguelikes, lacking, say, the cuddly mascots of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon or the cumulative experience-building of Izuna. But it's remarkably well crafted, with streamlined gameplay that belies its impressive substance. It's not a game that can be completed in just a few hours. Keep plugging away and learning from your mistakes, though, and eventually you'll get there...

...at which point a series of even harder postgame challenges will be waiting. If that prospect sounds appealing rather than terrifying, congratulations: This game is for you.
