A lot of reviews were pretty hard on Contact, I felt. But for someone who really takes his games seriously, I wanted to give this game the play it deserved before reviewing. I have to say, Contact almost makes you one with your DS. It's a game that requires a bit of your time and has you thinking about puzzles and strategies even when you are not playing. In an animation style that is very similar to Earthbound (Mother), Contact already was a warm welcoming as you are greeted by the "Professor." It starts off quirky and fun, and it only continues on as being strategic and embracing. Any RPG fan would be thoroughly pleased with what Contact has to offer.
