GamePro: 3D Dot Game Heroes Review

To say that 3D Dot Game Heroes takes inspiration from classic 8-bit and 16-bit action adventure titles is an understatement. The game makes no qualms about being an homage to the NES and SNES era, with The Legend of Zelda series acting as the main source of inspiration. While the game's visual style is all its own, representing everything in the world as tiny cubes or "dots," everything else, from its humor to its main quest, is a riff on classic RPG conventions. This begs the question: are you the type of gamer who can appreciate a title that successfully represents a throwback to this era of gaming, with all the trappings of what made Zelda so fun to begin with, or do you want to be treated to something more original?

The story is too old to be commented.

Wow, this game is getting higher reviews than I thought it would get and it's only $40 to boot.

yeah it's only got 2 so-so reviews of 6/10 ...one of which is teletext (no surprise there), the rest have been pretty high 8's and 9's.

This game looks so great, cannot wait!

Honestly i am surprise as well. I thought it will be a low 8 game. Not that it matters. I was just guessing.
