Get ready to explore a beautiful, reimagined world in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX – a remake of the original Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance titles. Build your rescue team from the likes of Pikachu, Eevee and Charmander and complete missions to save Pokémon in the ever-changing mystery dungeon!
Great remaster of a great Pokemon game
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX feels perfectly at home on the Nintendo Switch, portability is a must for any game like this! The graphics for this game are just beautiful, it feels like work has really gone into making the Pokemon and their environments stand out on the Switch with their hand drawn and painted feel.
Controls can get a little confusing at times but a lot of this game can hold you hand with the 'Auto' button, designed to dull down some of the repetitiveness of moving tiles and heading to the next dungeon level. Story can be a little sparse but in a game like this that isn't a massive draw back since the main aim of the game is dungeoning crawling and levelling up.
Unfortunately the game can get quite repetitive and you could end up spending quite a lot of time for not a lot of reward. But if you are a fan of RPGs and don't mind a bit of a grind, this one is for you!
