5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Pixelated Pleasure! May 11, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a quick summary of my experiences and thoughts on 3DDGH. I will update for the next few days as I progress further. This is basically to answer a few questions people might have regarding gameplay and other aspects.

This game is a tip of the hat to all those great old school RPGs like Zelda and Dragon Quest. While some may say it's a complete rip-off of our beloved Zelda, it's more of a tribute.

The graphics are very good, obviously not God of War III quality, however they are extremely charming, I might even say "cute". All of the environments and character models are built out of little cubes, think LEGOs, but 1x1 size blocks. I was surprised how much detail can be created using simple blocks. There obviously aren't any fine details, however if you've ever played Nintendo or Sega Master System games you will appreciate the graphics. Throughout the world are bodies of water and what appears to be lava, but it's swirling and not made out of cubes. It's a blend between 8-bit graphics and sort of hokey special effects, I love it!

There are a large number of enemies in the game. I've come across 8 or so already and I've been playing a couple hours. Like games of old, once you leave a screen and come back, the monsters respawn. They appear in small poofs as they get spawned, which is a nice little touch. There are enemies that rush you, throw spears, and other stuff. Some are cute little bunnies but they obviously have a grudge because they will rush! You have classic creatures such as skeletons, scorpions, slimes (a nod to Dragon Quest, there's a blue slime in the first village), bats, ghouls, and most other creatures you can think of.

The dialog is extremely humorous!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great Zelda rip-off May 14, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not sure I can add anything new to the excellent reviews here, but I'll try.

When I first heard that "3-D Dot Game Heroes" would be released in the US, I was ecstatic. From Software had already scored a huge hit with "Demon's Souls," and the idea of this game seemed very intriguing: an homage to the top-down action adventures of yesteryear, with particular attention paid to the granddaddy of them all, "The Legend of Zelda."

But "3-D" is more than a tribute. It is a blatant rip-off. I say this in the best way possible, because if there is one game a company should rip off, it's "Zelda". Hailed by many as the single greatest game ever made, "TLOZ" changed gaming forever, from its use of the battery-pack for saving, to its open-world environments, to its dungeons and bosses. "Zelda" had it all. Of course, it spawned many quality sequels, but with the advent of 3-D gaming, the top-down beauty of this classic has been lost.

"3-D" has a full dose of itself, however. There are numerous references to 8-bit classics of yesteryear, from strange translations of spells, to clues that point you nowhere. There's even a developer's room, harkening back to games such as "Chrono Trigger." But scratch below the nostalgia, and you have some quality gameplay that's worth coming back for.

Anyway,

The Good:
1) The Nostalgia - I loved every minute of it. As a 35-year-old gamer who remembers crowded arcades in the early 80's, it was great to revisit the quirks of old NES classics.
2) Exploration - "3-D" has a large overworld map, just like Zelda of the past. But many of the secrets of this map are obscured, or unattainable, until you get certain abilities. This adds length to the game, but it never feels unnecessary.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Yikes, it's finally here. I've been waiting on this ever since I fell in love with the previous Atlus title Demon's Souls, and having given it some serious time since yesterday I've got an observation. This game is a fun throwback. Agree with those who say it's worth it just for the return to yesteryear, but also agree with those who say it's just a slick copy of Zelda with little new to offer. I think the disparity is in HOW developers pay homage to classic games for those of us who seek and love that "nostalgic" element. Demon's Souls was an incredible nextgen game with a throwback to the gameplay style of 8-bit games, where unforgiving levels literally drive you to the brink of insanity. That just makes success all the more sweet due to how hard you work to achieve it. I hadn't screamed and accused the computer of cheating so much since 1989, all because after I died I had to start all the way back at the beginning and that sucks (and rocks). Unfortunately, Atlus's new attempt to pay homage to classic games falls a bit flat because it's not replicating the gameplay style so much as the aesthetic and plot simplicity of a beloved set of classic games. The result, while fun, leaves you a bit empty and longing for the original. Still, it's not a full-price game, so there's that too. Overall a fun but shallow homage to (some of) the things, not all, that made classic 8bit so great.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you're looking at this game, and you've scrolled down, or clicked some button to read more reviews, and you're still not sure whether or not to buy this game, then I really don't know what to say.

3D Dot Game Heroes is [insert generic description seen above here]. It takes many cues from past...game.....s....li.....ke....ze.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

You have to know this information already. So instead let me explain some smaller details not often mentioned. The side quests are actually quite entertaining. Most of them lead to encounters with NPCs that have witty dialogue and references to other video games, famous people, pop culture, or memorable past events. One fairly entertaining side quest, for example, is a quest around town delivering letters to significant others, but each person has no idea they're in a relationship with the other person, and instead wish for you to send a letter to their "fiance", who in turn, believes she is actually being stalked.... and the cycle continues.

Truly the dialogue is really what sets the game over the edge. Too many one shot lines to recount, but I found myself laughing aloud more at this game than any game in the recent past (maybe minus other Atlus titles, or games that, likewise, don't take themselves too seriously [Phoenix Wright saga])

Actually, I would say the greatest downfall of 3D DGH is the gameplay. Here's some fun facts about me: I love Zelda. I love Zelda titles more than almost any other games out there. I have played them all, and beat them with flying colors and highest grades of completion. I have beaten pretty much every console Zelda game without dying once. Why am I telling you this? I got my ass handed to me by the first boss in 3D DGH probably 20 times before I was able to beat him.
