Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara Review - The Digital Fix

In the early ‘90s if you were a kid wandering the floors of a musty arcade, pocket money jangling in your jeans and Pearl Jam blasting in your ears, you’d almost certainly have come across at least one of the Dungeons & Dragons coin-ops. Unique amongst their brethren for their multiple story paths, technical gameplay and faithful adherence to the source material, Tower of Doom and its sequel Shadow over Mystara were never as popular as more linear fare such as Turtles in Time, but they had a rich, inviting charm of their own. Until now, Capcom’s cult side-scrolling beat-’em-ups have never been ported over to consoles in Europe. Thankfully, this oversight has been addressed with the release of Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara which bundles both coin-op ports into a shiny, downloadable treat. Pull on your coif, strap on your quiver and keep your twenty-pence pieces tucked safely away. (Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360) 8/10
