Is this game any good?

#1 Posted by CoheedFavorHouse (670 posts) -

In my recent hype about Kingdom Hearts, I seemed to have forgotten that the only ones I've played are the console titles. And while those two are enough to justify buying Birth By Sleep in the morning, I seem to have forgotten something else. I own a DS. 
 
I don't play it much, admittedly, I think the only game I have from post 2005 is Pokemon Heartgold. Still though, if i like BBS, I think I'd like to give 358/2 a try. But I don't really know much about it. For anyone who has played it, is it good? I felt a little stupid carrying around my DS, but my affinity for Pokemon overwhelmed my embarrassment, and I'm hoping this game will do that too. So opinions, short (or long, i guess) reviews, or tips for the game anyone would care to throw me?

Yes, it's a good game.  Since the game is mission based, the missions do get a little repetitive.  Kill this, investigate that.  I found the game more enjoyable in short bursts then in long sessions.

The design is ideal for the portable format.  Pick it up, clear a mission or two, put it down again for later.  It was, however, my favorite game of last year.  If you enjoy Kingdom Hearts, it's a fair bet that you'll enjoy 358/2 Days, too.

This is true.
