The game is not fun... I could not play for more than 5 mins. Unless you have absolutely no other games to buy/rent out there--- wait, even then I wouldn't get this game. I can't describe what a waste of time it was to use a rental on this game. I just can't even begin to describe how bad this game is...

Dokapon Kingdom is a party game combining classic rpg elements with a board game element. You jump right in and start playing. And then the 'fun' starts. I tried to start as a magician, but I got my butt kicked everytime I fought a monster. You have to buy the ablities, so a magician is absolutely useless as a starting job. When I started as a thief, I was able to get past the basics, but then discovered you can win any battle if you choose 'strike' on your attack turn. It can be countered with 'counter' but enemies rarely use it. I still forged on, and then my rage reached its apex; one of the cpu went onto a Dark Space. In one swoop he stole my castles, my items and all my towns, and when I went to the Dark Space, it wouldn't let me use it! And you have to spin the exact number to land on a certain space, so you're circling the board for weeks (game time, not real time) just to get somewhere. So in short, lousy battle system, lousy move system, just plain lousy game.
If you are looking for an rpg multi player, this is the closest, and best you will get. Everyone in my dorm is addicted to this game constantly wanting to come over and play. Not one person has hated it yet. So many twists that happen, and the best part of this game is it evens it out. If one person gets uncontrollably ahead of everyone else, the game sticks in stuff to balance it out, one month, somebody could be first, the next month another person will be first, I love that. You will never get sick of this game, I wouldn't even rent it, I'd buy it on ebay. I'm returning this from gamefly and buying me a copy as we speak.
