Gameplay

As with earlier releases in the series, EOIII is an RPG designed primarily around dungeon crawling and turn-based party combat. In single player action the player acts as leader a new crew of up to five adventurers, which must be created. In the local multiplayer mode each player occupies one of these five spots. The game contains many character classes, including but not limited to Prince, Gladiator, Hoplite, Buccaneer, Ninja, Monk, Zodiac, Wildling, Arbalist and Farmer. Each of these have their own strengths and weaknesses, which should be taken into account when a team is assembled. Each member of a class can can also be identified as male or female. Once assembled this team can start exploration of the Yggdrasil Labyrinth, where monsters dwell.

Within the Labyrinth players are guided by a map, which can be customized with points of interest, directions, etc. using the DS stylus. Once monsters are encountered, turn-based combat begins, with the five party members arrayed in a line of three in front and two in back, or vice versa, and with support/healing as well as ranged attacks possible from the rear. If a character in the vanguard falls, one from behind assumes that position on the line. Players dictate in advance how individual characters respond in combat, and with victory in combat can use the individual skill points characters earn to level up specific abilities and attributes. An additional new feature allows for players to take to the high seas. Here they can explore, fish and battle new monsters for as long as provisions are available for the crew.

Key Game Features

  • Create Your Unique Team - A system of 10 new classes and a wealth of proprietary skills make developing the optimal party absorbing, tactical, and rewarding. Will you invest in sword mastery or learn a new healing spell?
  • Live and Die By Your Map(-making) - When danger lurks around every corner, it is imperative to keep track of where you have been and what you found there. The streamlined map maker lets you draw paths, paint in terrain, and drag and drop icons.
  • Adventure in the High Seas - The ocean becomes a new stage for exploration. Sail your ship, chart the ocean map, sink enemy vessels, and take on seagoing foes.
  • Replay Value - Play again and again as you pursue each of the game's three possible endings.
  • Wirelessly Share with Friends - Up to 5 friends can team up in special combat challenges over a local wireless connection to take down the toughest monsters living in the ocean. Additional options let you wirelessly trade items.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you're already familiar with the Etrian Odyssey series and fan of the first two entries, stop reading now. This is the best entry in the series by far, and you should go out and buy this immediately.

For those who are new to this series or genre, it'll take a little thought on your part to determine if this is a game you'll enjoy. If you're the right kind of gamer for this game, however, I can just about guarantee that you'll absolutely LOVE this game.

Etrian Odyssey III is primarily a first person dungeon crawling RPG. It's got a bare-bones story that pushes you to create your own plots and stories as you play. The story overall is pretty involved and you'll meet a lot of interesting characters, but all the characters that you play are entirely of your own creation (from name to job to portait). To maximize the storytelling potential of this game, I highly recommend you take the time to create (and maybe even write down) stories for your guild and guild members.

Where EO3 really shines, however, is the gameplay. Character customization is the deepest in the series, and some of the best in the genre. You can create up to 30 different characters, and take a party of up to 5 with you into the dungeon. EO3 replaces the old classes from the first two entries in the series with 10 completely new classes. These classes are very unique and most are completely original (and not just a carbon copy of an old EO class). Within this class, you'll be spending skill points (you earn one with each level-up) to obtain both passive skills and skills you use as commands in battle. You can choose your character's name, gender, class, portrait (including 2 color schemes for each portrait), equipment, skills, and later in the game, a subclass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game! October 6, 2010
By M. Long
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First let me just say that I haven't played Etrian Odyssey I/II, but I've heard that III is an improvement.
The art book is also nice and feels rather high quality.

Anyway, on to the game review:

I just got the game earlier today and I don't want to stop playing it. You start off by creating a Guild and adding/creating members (30 maximum) from a total of 10 classes and 8 appearances for each class. I've heard that you can even dual class later on in the game, but I haven't gotten that far yet. There's basically two ways to level up, earn gold, and find items: Labyrinth and exploring the sea. The Labyrinth is basically a dungeon crawler similar to Strange Journey, but there are quite a few interesting additions. My favorite additions are the item system and the FOE. The item system is pretty unique/fun because you can sell monster parts and materials to the shop to unlock new equipment for purchase/crafting. You can also upgrade equipment by adding bonus effects to free enhancement slots in a similar manner. I suppose it's time to talk about the dreaded FOEs...

...FOEs are basically Elite enemies that walk around dungeons and will try to hunt you down. Generally, you don't want to fight them because they're INCREDIBLY powerful, but there's some serious experience and unique materials involved if you manage to defeat one. As of this review I just managed to defeat my first FOE after around 4 failed attempts and crafted a really powerful Lance using the materials it dropped. I honestly can't wait to find another one to test my new weapon out on. lol

Last but not least is the exploration mode. You basically get your own ship and can sail the open seas in search of treasure, bosses, and new areas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Part III, improved September 28, 2010
By T. Hof
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Etrian Odyssey III continues the dungeon crawl that began this series, and where the second game didn't add much variation, this time they have added some features to change it up a bit. The graphics and sound remain on par with the first two games (if you haven't played them, try to get your hands on them), and the game play remains the same (enter dungeon, slay monsters, draw map while exploring, take bounty from victories back to store to earn money and buy better weapons/armor), but they have added a second quest where you go asea to explore the area around the dungeon site city, and they have added a few new character types (add a princess to your party!) to bring some more variety into the game. If you like your game to go from A to B, this one isn't for you, as you will be doing huge amounts of retreading through the dungeons to level up enough to survive the night. They have added "camping spots" this time, so you don't have to continually head to the city, and there seem to be more secret paths so you can zoom between levels more directly.
I am really enjoying this, in a time-wasting way, and should get many, many hours of play out of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A kick in the butt that this genre needs February 13, 2011
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had just finished playing golden sun: dark dawn before I grabbed this one up. More and more I've yet to find rpg's that challenge me in any wa. Growing up on games like wizardry and the bard's tale, rpg's were fun because you could explore and battles didn't end just by mashing the A button. you really had to think. I hadn't found one in a long time with that kind of difficulty.

Then came Etrian odyssey 3

This game is a challenge. It WILL test your patience. Casual gamers are not going to like this game. Anyone who likes their hand to be held while playing, will not like this game. But if you're the type of person who loves getting involved in charcter customization, who likes the fact that you have to grind a little bit, and can't just rush through things, no doubt will you find an amazing and fun experience. Each class is unique, and have a deep skillset so that customization is so unique in every game. This is not a game about story, it's a game about the journey.

If you're looking for pretty graphics, and deep rich intricate storylines and no challenge, this game isn't for you. For those of you like me, who wish more Rpg's require thought, this may be the perfect game for you.
