Spin-off remake is cute, but easy and repetitive.

A remake of a game that while enjoyable, isn't as good as the original.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX is a game that takes an original classic game and, while polishing and making the graphics better, adds new mechanics that make the game a bit unintuitive. The new items added in were confusing to me first because I wasn't used to them. The difficulty curve really goes up in this game compared to the original. The story and characters are still as unforgettable and enjoyable as ever, though. You'll find yourself starting a Rescue Team with someone who finds you and along the way you'll meet two new friends to join your team. You'll also have a lot of post-game content as well. The graphics look really clean. The art style is beautiful. Overall, the game feels a bit more difficult than the original, but if you enjoy Pokemon, you should definitely give it a shot.
