Definitely more realistic though. It's one of the few good 3DS games. The other ones being Zelda, SFIV, DOA and Ridge Racer.
I would say it's more like Fire Emblem but if any of your characters dies you fail the mission and have to start over. A MUST HAVE at that price. Really tempted to pick up SSFIV 3D but I have too many fighting games for my 360 already...
EDIT: Monkey Ball got a 7.5 from IGN and I loved the first one for the GC so I may pick that up.
