    Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker for the Nintendo DS is a colorful game with spectacular graphics considering that it is for a handheld system. This game has a 360 degree view unlike most hand held games that are either sidescrolling or top-view. This game also utilizes both screens efficiently with maps on the bottom screen. The battle style is much like any other Dragon Quest game except for that you can see the monsters that you are about to battle on the map prior to battle. The style is also turn-based. This game is quite similar to pokemon in the way that you can capture monsters to battle for you. You capture monsters by "scouting" and the stronger your monsters the easier it is to capture enemy monsters as opposed to "pokeballs." The story line in this game is a bit on the lame side, but the main feature is the gameplay which is fun and will keep you occupied for hours at a time. So overall this is not just a game to pass the time, but a fun game to play whenever. I recommend this game to people who enjoy the pokemon series as well as turn based RPGs.

    Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker is the latest in a spinoff series from Dragon Quest (also known as Dragon Warrior). On the heals of the critically acclaimed Dragon Quest VIII, DQM:Joker uses the same cell-shaded visual style with original character designs by the famous Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball). The game looks absolutely beautiful in full 3-D on the Nintendo DS. The colors are sharp, the characters are creative and the Monsters look better than ever before in this series. Although there is some very rare graphical pop-up, for the most part the game runs smoothly. Undoubtedly this will be the basis for the engine to be used in DQIX. The gameplay is incredibly in depth and offers a much deeper experience than any other game in the monster genre. You “scout” monsters by impressing them with your monster teams power. You can also synthesize new monsters by combining the ones you have. The battle system is tried and true with new twists and skills. The story is also much deeper than previous DQM games have been. Basically, if you like monster hunting, or you like RPG’s this game will be well worth it for you. It is an epically long quest with tons of variety and replayability. I have been a DQ fan for a long time, but I can honestly say this game is for everyone.
