Best of E3 06: Nintendo DS

Best RPG side story: Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime

Publisher: Square Enix
Developer: Square Enix
Release Date: September 2006

Nintendo may be putting out a new Zelda game this year, but there's always room for more clever action-RPG questing. And though the Dragon Quest series stood tall on the PS2 with its eighth installment last year, the DS needs some love too, right? So what's a better idea than to take the lovable blue slime character and shove him into a game all his own?

As Rocket the slime, you'll stretch, bounce and slam your way through a fantasy world in search of your blobby friends. Fighting monsters with a pliable body adds a whole new spin on action-RPG combat - just bounce into them or pick them up and throw them at their comrades. It's a lot of fun, and that's before you even get to try out the tank-vs-tank multiplayer battles. Now that's some crazy chaos.

Being blue and bulbous doesn't sound so bad, does it? Find out more here. If you'd like to learn about other platforms' best games of E3 06, head back here and read away.
