Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City Review - GameZone

"Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City is a roguelike RPG that scoffs at formalities such as story-arcs and melodramatic characterization. You command a group of explorers into the Yggdrasil Labyrinth in search of treasure, which is about as deep as the story goes. In its place is a wealth of options for customizing characters and plenty of mysteries to be solved with ingenuity as your only guide. Veterans of the series know exactly what to expect, but for newcomers to the roguelike sub-genre, I will warn you now that Etrian Odyssey III should not be your first."

Hate to say it, but I never got the chance to play the first two and I don't think I'll have the time to play it anytime soon either.

As much as I love the Etrian Odyssey games, I still stress and warn people that it is a Rogue-Like RPG, and this series is especially brutal about it. It's a game with a good deal of challenge and a thin margin of error; if this is your first experience with a Rogue-like, it's going to be tough.

But, if you know what you're getting into when a game is designed to be Rogue-like, you're golden.

I expected this game to get a higher score. Still looks like a great RPG, though. I'll have to check it out soon.
