4.0 out of 5 stars Magical! May 16, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Magician's Quest really is magical. I've been playing the game for a few days, so I haven't experienced all that it has to offer, but from what I've seen so far, I'm impressed. You play a student at a school of magic (which you get to name). The world where you live includes the school, your dorm, a library, various tree homes, a shopping center, a haunted house, a cave, a beach, and an off-shore island, and lots more. I'm still discovering places you can go. As for things to do, the possibilities are seemingly endless. You attend classes where you learn how to perform magic using various incantations. So far, I've only managed the invisibility spell, and it was just like wearing Harry Potter's invisibility cloak.

In addition to school, you can explore the world and collect insects and fish which you take to the library to be cataloged. In exchange you are rewarded with crystals and bones and different ores which you can sell for Ritch (the money of the world). In the shopping center you can get your hair done, buy flowers, shop for furniture and other items, work for the Emporium (the magic shop), sell your collected items, and various other activities (I'm still discovering things to do there). In addition to classes, you encounter mysteries that need to be solved (the mystery currently going on in my world is the gargoyle is missing from the school); and occasionally you are launched into special mystery times during which the sky turns a strange color and you encounter people and objects that occur only during these times.

For those of you who are Animal Crossing DS fans, here are some comparisons. MT has far more options and possible places to explore than Animal Crossing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plays like Animal Crossing with a Magical Twist May 19, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is NOT a clone of Nintendo's Animal Crossing for the DS but borrows many ideas, elements and scenarios from it in a better way.
The graphics are very nice, as well as the music and can be controlled/played using both the stylus and the DS's controls (Thank you Konami).

There are 26 mysteries to solve, one for each week of the year, while in the process of becoming the greatest wizard of them all. While learning spells and incantations like Harry Potter you can do a wide range of things thus the similarity to the Animal Crossing series.
These range from decorating your dorm room with new furniture, learning and buying songs that you can perform in an instrument or whistle them, buying new clothes that includes many kinds shoes and pants and skirts, not just tops and hats., fishing, catching bugs, diging for gems and rare items.
The game is played in real time, and it will adjust itself to the clock and calendar settings of your DS. It has wifi capabilities you can have up to 3 players visit your school, and you can perform music together if you have isntruments like a mini chamber music quartet. Konami also has a few free items the player can download from time to time., so far magic brooms you can ride.
Like in AC for the DS up to 4 players can play with a single game cartridge and have their own separate rooms at the dorm. Your playing character is custom made by ourself as in the beginning you are presented with a large number of options to create him or her, these include haircolor and hairstyle, eyes, gender and skin tone.

As far as I know the game will be playable and some new missions will appear after the year is over, thus the replaying value is a good one. If you are a fan young or old of the Animal Crossing Wild World game, and if you like Harry Potter or fantasy magical stories, you'll love playing this game. Highly recommended. Five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I was hoping for. June 17, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game looking for something similar to Animal Crossing and that is exactly what I got. I love it. It's alot of fun. You are a new magician attending magic school and you learn spells and make new friends while solving mysteries and trying to get promoted as a wizard. There are lots of things to keep you busy such and catching bugs and fish and shopping and visiting the town folks.

It''s real time simulation at it's finest. The wi-fi capabilities add to this games fun rating as well.

All in all if you are a fan of the Harvest Moon games or Animal Crossing then you are sure to enjoy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A kid review July 2, 2009
By Jilly
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just got this game today and it's already made me excited enough to write a review. In the game you attend a magic school. You get to name it and choose if you are a boy or a girl. The principal of the school asks you a few questions: your name, your gender, your hair color, your birthday, and your skin tone. After you fill out these questions the principal hands you your wizard license(boys and girls are both called wizards in this game). The moment you get your wizard license, you start the game. You come out in your dorm, an area filled with rooms students of the magic school sleep. Your dorm is the one with the green door. Leave your dorm and come out to the magic school, inside you are taught your first lesson, then you get to explore the school. The magic school has everything from a bell tower, to the staff room, and even has a bathroom! After you're done exploring the school, head outside and turn right to one of my favorite places: the shopping center! It has a potion shop called the emporium, a boutique, an expensive shop that sells brooms and furniture ( my broom is a floating vacuum cleaner!),a place to get drinks called lime light, and several other stores! At first you will not have any money, but head over to the dorms and talk to this pumpkin guy, he'll give you your scholarship money: 3000 ritch! (that's money).
you can learn spells too, but I'm not very good at it!

Some of the reviews about this game is a bit misleading.

My friends and I had so much fun with this game. It's a lot like animal crossing. But in this one, you go to wizard school and can do magic. A lot of fun.
