Product Description

Edition: Standard

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara brings reworkings of two of Capcom’s classic arcade hits -Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara – together in one definitive digital package. Just as in the arcades, up to four players will select their character class before doing battle against the mythical beasts from the Dungeons and Dragons’ universe with a mix of melee, range and magic attacks.

Key features:

  • GGPO Enhanced Online With Drop-in/Drop-out Co-Op Play: Community-trusted GGPO powers a smooth online experience that allows up to four players to drop in or out of games in progress at will.
  • Classic Arcade Gameplay with a New Twist: Players can enjoy the original arcade modes or mix up the gameplay with House Rules that can completely alter the experience.
  • Some examples of House Rules:
    • Unbreakable - Equipable items have infinite durability. Never worry about breakage again!
    • Enemy Rush - Fight against time in this special Time Attack Mode. Start the game clock with 30 seconds and increase the clock with each enemy you kill!
    • Make it Rain – Get rich quick! Enemies and chests drop tons of gold!
  • Challenge System: A newly introduced RPG-like system that fits on top of the existing games and provides a myriad of challenges for players to complete. Players can level up and obtain Vault Coins to be used in the Vault.
  • The Vault: A treasure trove of unlockables and gameplay loot can be purchased with Vault Coins earned via the Challenge System.
  • Character Visualizer: This UI visualizer tracks which characters the players and their friends most often use. Players can utilize the tool to create a more balanced multiplayer dungeon crew, or to see which under-used characters they should try out next.
  • Leaderboards & Connected Arcade: Players can track how they stack up against their friends through leaderboards, as well as view a full breakdown of gameplay related stats.

Finally, a way to play this game without having to worry about MAME emulators. Had no issues integrating my logitech controller. Some people are saying that they have issues forming a group of people, but in my experience, if you just start a game, you'll have people drop into your game pretty quickly. Had a full party before the end of the first level of both games, and we played it right through.

My only complaint is that Capcom doesn't do anyhting with this IP. The RPG BMup genre has way too little going on.

First off, it's important to note the game comes with Tower of Doom as well as Chronicles of Mystara. This completes the classic arcade collection, and adds a whole extra arcade game/campaign to play.

For newcomers, the game is a blast to play a couple times with a friend. It's a fantasy beat-em-up with several different classes, and a large variety of enemies and pickups. Decent graphics, (the smooth filter used to scale the graphics seems a bit poor at times, but it's not bad most of the time. And you can always disable the filter if you want to see the original look.) and memorable music. (Although the title screen music for Tower of Doom is a bad choice, it loops almost immediately!)

The game is a lot of fun especially with a controller, although you'll probably want to setup your own scheme, since Tower of Doom and Shadows of Mystara have slightly different controls for some reason... (Also note, you have to press start on the controller at the first title loading screen to use a controller...).

Difficulty is actually really pretty easy due to having unlimited lives. It might have been a better/tougher experience actually, if you could set the amount of credits you start with... Not sure if there was a way to change that, I didn't see a way. It just counts up each time you die.

Story is pretty good for an arcade game, mostly set in stone, but at the end of some stages, you are given choices on which path you should take next. This adds quite a bit to the replayability and interaction.

Lastly, this port adds unlockables to the game; mostly interesting bits of artwork, and a few easy and challenge mode settings. It's not interesting though, and will probably be mostly appreciated by hardcore fans of the original.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Game July 13, 2013
Based on the game, i give it 5 stars. Its my first experience playing this game, and it is easily one of the deepest if not the deepest beatemup rpg ever created. If you're a fan of dark souls or demons' souls, i think you should also check this out. 2 great games, 2 thumbs up

5.0 out of 5 stars Faithful to the arcade version. March 8, 2014
Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Basically just the two (excellent) arcade games with some additional play options/modes that increase the replay value.

It has some filters, but this is NOT an HD remake. It uses the original 90's era assets. So if you were expecting Crysis 3, well, that's more of a personal issue.

4.0 out of 5 stars No quarters needed! December 5, 2014
Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Not much else to say other than a great port of the classic stand-up arcade game.
True to the original right down to the sound effects.

My only complaint is the wonky controller support on Steam, but not sure this is an issue with this game or Steam.
It is rather annoying to have to play this with a keyboard instead of Controller.

However, that aside, this little gem was a great trip down memory lane and the best part is - No need for a pocket full of quarters!

3.0 out of 5 stars dont get it at full price February 12, 2014
By Rahabib
Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I got mine on a heavy sale, and for the money I spent it was worth it. But at full price you will be disappointed to know the graphics are not updated, issues with controllers abound, and you will be done with both games in about a few hours.

If you are a fan of the arcade version, its great for nostalgia, but not $15 of nostalgia.
