3D Dot Game Heroes is a pleasant retreat for anyone who pines for the good old days, but even those without nostalgic links to the past will find an enjoyable experience.
I won't buy it this month, to many games coming out. I'll probably get it in the summer when theres a lul in games. Graphics are really nice.
Knowing Atlus's past, this may be a title that will be hard to get a hold of after the first run without paying more for it when it is out of stock in stores. Hold off if it's not a top priority, but just go in knowing that it might not be available after a little while
I wonder if this one is cheap. I remember when Demon Soul first came out, Fry's had it listed for like $39. After it became immensely popular, they bumped the price up to $59.99
As far as I know, it will be $39. Thats's what it's been listed for on Amazon for (currently, pre-order price is $36.99) http://www.amazon.com/3D-Do...
Cool review. I won't get this game anytime soon since Alan Wake is coming, but this will definitely be on my "get" list.
After reading the review, I hope they do a 3d dot heroes 2 with he play, create, share mantra. That could be pretty kick ass.
This game's visual style is so backwards. Technology didn't advance from 8-bit characters to 80 thousand polygon characters just so that we could go back to the blocky style. If everything else in this game is perfect, the developers still deserve some criticism for making the game look like this.
uhhh i think you are missing the point....
Swish, right over your head! haha... Homage to the old school era. That is the appeal here.
You have completely missed the point of this game.
No Guys, he's Right, we need "da Cryssiz Graphicz here" on this Particular Game that it suppose to be that way for a Reason, like "emulating" an old school RPG Game and such -_- lol
::Begins to write witty comment...reads it again, shakes head::
WTF? He can't be serious...right?
A game that plays homage to 8-bit era games by looking like U2. That makes perfect sense right?. Also, i though graphics don't matter to you x360 folks?.
I fear for the human race.
This game is MEH!
and so are you
then why are you here
go play your flashlight shooter. see, ps3 has a wide variety of games. other console's fanboys think variety means that the protagonists use different guns.
You're right, Why the Devs Made this Game, Damn It!!! what a Waste, they could do a FPS!!!! -_-
the game looks good. i will only have money for this or Modnation, and im continually leaning more towards Modnation. maybe i will just have to wait for the slow summer months, or just rent it.
Dammit, after becoming addicted to Shining force and Phantasy star on the Sega genesis collection recently I really want to play an updated game with an oldschool feel like this but then I want to play a party based RPG like Dragon age: Origins which I didn't buy when it came out but then Red dead redemption comes out soon and I have to get that but then Demon's souls comes out in the UK fairly soon but then so does Modnation racers but then aaargh. I'm gonna have to rob a bank.
It's better than a 7.5 in my opinion.
7.5, only 2.5 away from 10 is a bad score. Oh what is the world coming to. Seriously.
Good score. I will be picking this up when it eventually gets to $19.99. I can't wait to get my hands on the game.
I really hope everyone supports this game, so we can see some sequels. This is the kind of variety we all need. The Graphics Whoring + Shooter is becoming bland. ( I myself am a graphics whore and enjoy shooters ) This is a breath of fresh air and 40$ you can't go wrong.
