4.5 Hardcore Dungeon Crawling at it's finest! AaronEvisiling | 31/12/2009 | See all AaronEvisiling's reviews (22) For those of you who lived in the era of games such as Shining in the Dark and Phantasy Star then this game may be for you. Let me say this game is not for casual gamers and if you come into this game expecting to complete it within a week then you are mistaken. This game is a hardcore 3D Dungeon crawler, remember all those days of Shining in the Dark where you were constantly going round corners and forgetting your way with no map? This game is just like that however you do get a map, the only trouble is you have to draw it yourself! Parts you explore are discovered automatically but you still have to draw everything else such as walls, where all the tough enemies roam and exits to the next floor. The game as i mentioned is very tough and you will spend probably the first day on the first couple of floors building up your characters levels and getting enough money to buy some weapons and armour for them and money i may also add is tough to come by especially in the early levels! The graphics in this game are nice although the battles are simple and enemies unfortunately don't have much battle animation. Building your characters is vital to survival and wrong placement of a skill point after you have levelled up can make the difference between life and death. There are also optional small side quests which you are able to take part in to make a few extra cash or get extra rare items. In all there is easily over 80+ hours of gameplay in this game, it has lots of replay value also, i only wish it recorded how long you have been playing for, its definitely a gem of a game and hard to come by so do get it if hardcore RPG's are your thing!
