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, harking 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite PS3 games September 1, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had this game since the day it came out and absolutely love it. If you download a Link mod (or make your own!) off the offical website[...]
and switch the camera to angle B, it's just like playing an old Zelda game. My only complaint is that if you miss an item in one of the temples you're going to get stuck and have no idea what to do next. Luckily, IGN has a good walkthrough in case that happens. [...]

This is a game that was made for the old school gamer, like myself, who grew up in the days when NES & SNES reigned supreme. Ironically, as much as 3DDGH uses old ideas from the past, it's actually a very unique game in todays market. There's a whole legion of kids who grew up on Halo who have never played anything like this before. They just don't make em' like they use to. PS3 owners should not miss out on this gem.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Creative art. Boring design.
The art style is very intuitive and fun and its self aware sense of humor is charming when it isn't so dependent on plainly referencing dated internet memes or classic games. Read more

It plays a lot like a Zelda game, but I got bored of it real fast. The music wears thin really fast and the gameplay is mostly linear. And the story is paper-thin. Read more
