This is one of the most enjoyable games that I have played for the DS thus far. It has a nice take on natural leveling by leveling up certain actions the more you use them ex: using your club weapon will level up your ability and do more damage the more you use it or if you fish enough you gain exp in fishing.

The story I found a little short but there where lots to do after you beat the game.

Over all my take on the game is very positive and wifi was not half bad either.

If you have the time to sit down with an RPG that you can laugh about and have fun with, then Contact should be your choice. I got this from gamefly, and didn't keep it long, but that was because I had other games that I felt I wanted to play.

This game brought me back to a time when I played EarthBound for the SNES. The cute characters and small jokes are funny, but this truly is a full fledged RPG that I didn't have the time to play. The different decals and stickers give you the feeling you're peeling them of and placing them in places, and the combinations are uncountable and enjoyable.

I recommend trying this game first, and if you are one to love a good RPG then I suggest keeping it!

Contact, I awaited this game for a few months, my heart raced as I saw it move from my gameQ, to my "Games I have Out" list. I waited a few days, and checked the mail after school. I grinned, as I ripped open the Gamefly envelope, and plugged it into my DS. I turned it on, and was greeted by an odd looking 3D Keyboard and DOS-Like interface. I realized that I was getting into something way different than I have ever tried before. I started a new game, and began to fall in love. The combat system, though simple, was quite fun. It reminded me of a few online games I have played (IE: Final Fantasy 11). Basically, you don't attack by pressing a multitude of buttons...You just have to press B, to enter attack mode, and move to the enemy you have targeted. You have skills you can use, depending on your costume, and your weapon equipped. Without spoiling too much, I will say, the Decal system is wonderful, and some of the decals you can get are quite usefulm, and make the game alot easier than it normally would be. The amount of statistics you have to work on can be overwhelming, but, they add up to add alot of fun to the game. I suggest renting, and, heck, even buying this wonderful game. The reason it didn't get a perfect score, is simply because I have a working DS with wireless, and yet, the online mode was still very laggy, or didn't work at all, so, I didn't get a good opinion of it. However, the singleplayer more than makes up for it.
