Title
Also separated by a 2-year release gap is Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky, an enhanced version of Time/Darkness that incorporates new mechanics, hub areas and dungeons. The best feature - however, had little to do with add-ons or fixes. Its five unlockable 'character episodes' were mini-challenges whose origin stories (starring the side characters) add further depth and color to their passionate, Pokemon-inflected melodrama. But ultimately, all these updates try in vain to rescue a rather dull gameplay loop, in which players fast-forward their way through rooms while encountering (mostly redundant) items or (brief) fights every now and then. Tackling the odd group of enemies can be fun, and an honest attempt was made to dial up its difficulty, but generally speaking, latter-day Chunsoft is at their best when the audience is reading instead of exploring.

Title
Best of the Best
This is probably the best game on the DS and at least the best in the Pokémon series. The story is intriguing, filled with deep lore, and thought provoking and covers some pretty deep themes throughout. The soundtrack is insane- boasting a unique track for each main story dungeon, as well as some of the extra ones. Tracks during bosses and cutscenes are able to further convey the emotional state of the characters and boosts the climax of the story to another level. Post-game content is very solid as well and gives the player both more challenge and a reason to keep playing after completion.

    amazing music and story but the mechanics are lacking, also why don't they let you evolve or catch legendaries until the post game

    "It feels like the only reason this game has a third version (or a second version for that matter), is because Nintendo knows kids expect it, and will snatch it up. It's a rip off, plain and simple."

    - IGN, 49/100... haven't played it, but i highly doubt this sites objectiveness; however, that's not the purpose of it, is it?
