This game is a board game, RPG combo. With cool looking playable characters, magic, attacks, and monsters to use them on! The kingdom of Dokapon is being attacked by the monsters, and the king isn't geting his taxes, so he calls in heros from across the land (A.K.A. you.), and you defete monsters,complete challenges, and save the kingdom! Overall, fun but, a bit hard.
This game really does have a lot of potential and the actual gameplay is enjoyable.
The only problem is you don't spend much time on gameplay. Bulk of the game is spent waiting for either another player or for the computer players to act. It gets very frustrating and if you're playing with more than one other computer or other player, over half your time is spent just sitting there.
I suppose that's a consequence of the board game style of play but I found the long wait times to be unbearable.
As far as gameplay goes, it's actually kind of boring. This game is basically a third-party Mario Party™ knockoff. The story is also sort of bland. You basically have to liberate towns and get more money than your opponents. Also, it is an EXTREMELY boring one-player game. Only good for about two to three hours of satisfaction time. This title will definitely turn you into one of the Gamefly commercial guys if you were to purchase it.
