Great; bought it last week for $28 after reading all the good reviews...

Still a great game, should be picked up :)

Took 'em a few days to match the Best Buy sale. Came out of nowhere to become my DS GOTY, everyone should buy.

You should probably mention that it is currently unavailable at Amazon, and shipping may take 2-3 weeks.
Thank you CAG, for making grad school more enjoyable (and cheap).

I picked it up at Best Buy for $20, and it's so, so worth buying if you have any love for match-3 games or Puzzle Quest in particular. It's better than Puzzle Quest, IMO—feels more strategic. Really is one of the best DS games I've played all year.

it's 28.99 instock with free shipping at buy.com- so with the $10 off could be good if amazon won't have it for a few weeks.

It's $20 in the best buy weekly ad thread, but it's online as well, with only $0.99 shipping. Might be a better deal for some without having to find filler or that don't have Prime, or just want it sooner :)

just so people know its a MATCH 3 games like many people are saying with a side helping of RPG tossed in..

The game is 5 chapters long each chapter is a new warrior you need to rebuild from scratch..

the heroes are capped at level 10 and the monsters are capped at level 5 ...

got this game off gamefly last week and just beat the final boss at 31 hours

most of the boss battles are based on luck (cause you can NOT GRIND to get a higher level if your having problems once you reach those max levels)

chapter 1 was easy.. Chapter 2 was sort of longer ... chapter 3 boss was very easy .. chapter 4 was a major pain in the #$#$#> and dont even get me started with how easy chapter 5 boss was

it is a very nice game BUT with those LEVEL CAPS and almost no replay vaule it could of been better

BUT Really cant complain getting 30 hours out of a 20 buck game and then say you resell it for 10..

so 10.00 for a 30 hour game Very nice
WOOOO I STINK

Game has gotten some rather high reviews. Keep in mind DS games rarely have above a 85% average after so many reviews.

http://www.metacriti...might and magic

Right now on Gamerankings.com it sits at 17th despite a low amount of reviews, but if it maintains a review of a 8.7 or higher it will be considered one of the best DS games of all time.

Pretty big for a game that IMHO came out of left field. Putting it on my wishlist down the road if it hits $10 or $15ish.

Definite buy. I love it.

Slidecage's review is largely accurate though it is worth noting that the game has a substantial skirmish mode that lets you go hero vs. hero, customizing loadout, against the game's AI and maybe MP but I've got no friends so ronery ;_;

Even with the 2-3 week shipping wait, I decided to order. I'll just pretend it's on my backlog. Thanks for the heads-up, OP.

There's a large portion of us here who are buying Xmas presents "for the kids". It's difficult when you know what games the kids are getting, you know where they are hidden, but you're not allowed to play them until Dec. 25th.

I don't mean to make it sound like I'm getting the kids stuff they don't want. A Venn diagram of our wish lists would show large areas of overlap.

M&M:CoH I bought for me, though. I guarantee I'll lose it to my son.

Why would you bump a thread that's two months old, especially when the price isn't valid?

I was just talking about this in the PK thread. A must have DS game! It's one of my top 2 DS games (next to PQ).

Such an overhyped game...It's very flawed. If you do all the battles in a level, there is no way you won't beat the boss. The fighting gets tedious and you start over 5 or 6 times!!!! And it's too luck based for my taste.

Just..not as good of a game as everyone says it is. If you look deeper, you can see it's below mediocre. Just be warned before you buy it.

It is a pretty good game - genuinely entertaining throughout. My only qualm with it was that it was a bit short. I liked Puzzle Quest a ton more and would recommend that over this, but it was still a fun puzzle rpg experience. 20 bucks probably isn't a bad price point for it, but I would have rather paid 10-15, or about $1 per hour of gameplay.

Of course if you have a friend to play multiplayer with that may be a whole new story. Mutliplayer is probably pretty fun.
