Jae Lee writes: When I tried out Demon Gaze back in April of last year, it was my first exposure to games developed by “Experience Inc.”
It was just around the time I was warming up to dungeon crawlers like the Etrian Odyssey series and I was quite impressed with what I played. The slick character and level designs along with an excellent OST filled with memorable tracks if not for a few notable grievances, it could have easily earned an editor’s choice award.
So, suffice to say, when I heard that they had another dungeon crawler in the works for the Vita, I wanted to check it out.
Unfortunately, while Operation Abyss isn’t a bad game, it fails to capture the essence that made Demon Gaze great.
