Hey everyone. I am in a debate between a few games right now.
The games I am deciding between are:
Kirby Super Star Ultra
Dragon Quest Wars IV

I really am a kirby fan, but haven't played many Kirby games. It seems really interesting, and reading what dsmaster said above, I am really interested.

I have never played a Dragon Quest game (except the DSiWare, which was less then 15 minutes), but lots of people say it is really addicting. I am a major RPG fan.

Thanks for your help!

@Funky Gamer I played both from a friend and I have to say this:
For Kirby SSU, you would get it if you want a platformer in short enjoyable bursts. The game is essentially a remake of an SNES game (a collection of small kirby games and one of the best) with added mini games and stages, updated visuals that are pleasing to the eyes, and the same epic music that seems too good for a game this cartoonish and cheery. The controls are engaging and responsive which may seem to be the winning factor of the kirby games.
For DQ IV, It is the remake of the play station game's remake of the nes game made portable. I applaud Arte Piazze for rendering the visuals and making the animations lively and entertaining. Really, I was attracted to the visuals and harmonized by the charming music to make me 100% the game even if it had an outdated fighting system. The battles are the usual turn-based & command type gameplay you'd expect from an RPG which may seem dull for the new generation. That aside, the game would take about 20-30hours to complete depending on how good you are.
All in all, reading your discrption, I 'd say to get the kirby first and if you have the money and time, get the latter.

I'm still thinking if I should start off with the first Professor Layton, move onto the second and then play the 3rd. OR should I just get the 3rd? Wouldn't that be enough? Or is it worth experiencing all 3 of these games? What sets them apart from each other besides the story line? But ya,I fell in love with Zack & Wiki :D

Zack & Wiki's Motion IR Control puzzle soliving was amazing and so much fun! I'd imagine the same thing with Professor Layton, but in a different sort of way...

Well, I've never played a professor layton game, but I never seem to play games in order (and I don't even know it), and it still seems fun to me.

@WaveBoy The Prof. Layton series doesn't have a continuous story as such, but you may want to start with the first one because if you start with the third you'll probably never go back to the older ones since they're so much lower tech. :P

@dsmaster - Here are some impressions of the Jap version to let you know more about that game. :

  • http://www.wired.com/gamelife/2010/03/lufia-ds/#more-2188
  • http://www.siliconera.com/2010/03/15/estpolis-the-battle-syst...
    It's basically an Action rpg remake of a traditional rpg and if you're a fan of hack 'n slash gameplay, then go for it. But, just to let you know if you have your doubts here are some other alternatives (Ys1&2, FF ring of fate/ echoes of time, Blue dragon, Children of Mana)

I need help also, I can only get one game and I need something that is really enjoyable and can last you long(including high replay value). I am deciding between Kirby SSU(played before, but couldn't get, enough of it), Super Scribblenauts and Four Heroes of light. I know how good they are, but I need to know your thoughts. Thank you.

@Karakato_00: I will say that maybe you will want to wait for the upcoming kirby game for the DS, or get Epic Yarn, anyways; 4HOL last long, like 30 hours I have heard, but I also heard that it was hard, and well, I think not alot of replay value, maybe on the minigames? But Super Sribblenauts have lots of levels, the ones you can always play again, that adds alot of replay value + the sandbox and the "create your own level mode" so I think that you should go for SS, first, because of the high replay value and the long hours you can spend in the sandbox mode, also creating you own level, sharing them, and playing the other people levels. So it is really enjoyable, and with the replay value can last long :D, so yeah, go for that 1.

Thanks for the info, I think the battle system does not look that good and personally I preferred the original's gameplay. I think i'll try one of the alternatives you listed, thanks again.

For my birthday I am wondering if I should get FF Heroes of Light or Dragon Quest IX.

I'm looking for a RPG that will keep me playing for quite a while (like 50 hours). Which one is the best as far as gameplay/replay value?

Thanks!

Dragon Quest IX because of the Downloadable quests they give each week.

@pie4prez - I can't really give you an opinion on FF4, but DQIX probably has one of the greatest replay values in an RPG ever. I've put over 200 hours into my game (beat that, Reggie!) and still going with a muffled enthusiasm. It's totally worth it.

Exactly.

What are some pros and cons of Dragon Quest IX?
I've heard good things about it but the only Dragon Quest I've played is Rocket Slime. :P
