GameFocus: "If there is one thing that is paramount in what Etrian Odyssey 3 does compared to others, it’s the perfect pacing it employs. Though it is quite the challenge throughout, when the class systems, party mechanics and questing all pull together, this becomes one RPG that is nothing short of brilliant. It’s a testament to the designers when you consider how deep the options and the labyrinth really are. Again, I rarely stick with many role-playing games for long, but here I find myself always thinking, "Just a little more.". The casual crowd might not identify with it, but for anyonr born and bred on classic turn-based gameplay, the third time truly is a charm."
