Diehard GameFAN: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity Review

DHGF: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity isn’t as good as previous releases in the series. It has a third of options for starting Pokemon, a fraction of the dungeons and the least amount of obtainable Pokemon yet. The difficulty has also been drastically reduced making this a cakewalk from beginning to end. While one may wonder why the GBA Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game has more content than a 3DS one, unfortunately it’s not a question I I can really answer. The good news is that Gates to Infinity is still a really fun roguelike that offers dozens of hours of RPG goodness, an enjoyable story for all ages (but noticeably darker than most Poke-tykes might be ready for with at least one major Pokemon dying quite horribly) and some pretty impressive visuals . Gates to Infinity is one of the best looking games on the 3DS and it’s definitely worth purchasing if you are a fan of Pokemon or RPGS in general, although longtime fans of the series may be disappointed by how easy the game is and the fact the game has far less content than previous releases and only features Unova based Pokemon. Two dollars per DLC dungeon is also going to be a bit of a sore spot consider the older games had these same dungeons for free and built into a cart with much less capability. At the end of the day Gates to Infinity is overshadowed by the previous Mystery Dungeon games, but it’s still an enjoyable one.
