First off, Blue Rescue team was my first ever video game back in 2007. Having that out of the way, this being the remake has lived up to my expectations and more. I’m not very far in this one yet, only just beat Zapdos, but it is both very similar and very different to the originals.The music is super nostalgic. It’s much like the originals but with an added “pop”. I don’t know how they took the originals and made them better, but they did.The sprites are very nice. A couple of tiny complaints include Eevee’s run cycle and Ekans in general. I adore most other sprites.I also like the added dialogue and animations. Absol was one of my favorites in the original and I’ve heard that he’s been given additional dialogue. Also, all of Zapdos’s animations were superb.I would highly recommend this game to new and old mystery dungeon fans alike. I had high hopes for this, as I was very disappointed in SWSH. I can 100% say this remake has surpassed my expectations and I do not regret buying it.
Love this game! Good storyline, challenging, and (best part for me) you still get the freedom to make your own choices and come up with your own strategy. Much harder and different gameplay than the other pokemon games, but you get countless hours of fun out of it. Plus, there is some beautiful artwork/scenery in this game.
This game is truly amazing! As mentioned elsewhere, this is a remake and update from the original Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Blue/Red Rescue Team. The mechanics have been updated so that your partner Pokemon are smarter than the original game (they avoid traps, actually help you defeat enemies, pick up items, use items appropriately, etc). Also, some minor in town improvements help to add a modern mechanic and feel to the game while still staying true to the original feel and gameplay. The art is amazing! It appears as if everything was hand drawn and crafted in detail. If you observe the movements of the Pokemon, the cut scenes, and in town detail, the graphic designers put a lot of effort into them to make them realistic while maintaining the style of hand drawn art and the original game. For example, if you observe Pidgey and its evolution chain, you can see its wings flap and move realistically (within the context of it being hand drawn). If you are a fan of the original, this game is perfect for you, or if you are a Pokemon fan or want to experience a dungeon crawler, then this game is great! Items from later games have been added so there are a greater number of items to collect and fairy types have been added.One disappointment is that, while the Pokemon are smarter (both partner and foe) the partner Pokemon still lack some practicality. For example, I had recruited a few Pokemon in an early dungeon, and I lead my team through a hallway. However, an enemy entered the room that still contained a couple of my teammates. Even though the game added the element that your team actually follows the leader (which is great) and does not engage in every single battle, the enemy Pokemon began to use distance attacks against my team. The Pokemon that it was hitting did not move or try to get out of the way. It just stood there and fainted. So, even though the AI has improved drastically since the first games that these are based off of, it still falls a tiny bit short in this area and a few others.However, those points are minor and the game is great and is a very well done update/refresh on a classic that still maintains the integrity of the classic while adding many small modern features that take advantage of the updates of computers. Definitely one to buy, and I hope they come out with similar updated games for one or more of the rest of the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series!
