Dragonquest Monsters – Joker, is somewhat of a pokemon like experience on the nintendo DS. Though it mixes up the formula some. You are not running into random battles, you actually see the monsters on screen walking around. The graphics are in full 3D, and it actually looks pretty impressive. However 80% of the game i found, was about grinding ( Fighting wild monsters over and over ) just to level your monsters. And also, you have to keep combining your monsters to create even better ones, which really leaves you feeling like your doing things in circles. However, the graphics, story and music is terrific, and a fan of the series will expect all the issues i stated – and will love this game anyway.
