I want to like this series, but I just can’t do standard roguelikes anymore. The dungeons are all rectangles connected by hallways. The random generation serves to make every dungeon you enter feel the same, rather than making every playthrough of the same dungeon feel different. The gameplay is nothing to write home about. I love the concept of roguelikes, and I really enjoy playing as Pokemon, and the music and story are excellent, but the execution of the mechanics and lack of variety overall kills these games for me.
