Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I was a huge Fighting Fantasy gamebooks fan back in the late 80's and early 90's, so I regarded the release of "The Warlock of Firetop Mountain" with great interest. For those too young to remember, Fighting Fantasy books work like a "Choose Your Own Adventure" book crossed with Dungeons & Dragons gameplay, in which you must choose between branching paths that ultimately effect the outcome of the story. You roll dice to determine how enemy fights turn out, and it was great fun that spanned a series of nearly 60 books. I felt that this would be perfect for a handheld video game, and unfortunately, this one is more miss than hit.

What we get here is a standard dungeon-crawling RPG that, in certain parts, is quite fun and challenging. The story is pretty stock by RPG standards; you go through a series of dungeons with the end goal of defeating an evil wizard, but it has (as others here have mentioned) an Elder Scrolls crossed with Doom feel to it. The 3D environments allow for exploration and treasure collecting, and you will encounter monsters and the occasional friendly person throughout your quest. On the positive side, it does have some nostalgic value both for those who enjoyed the gamebotoks back in the day, and for those who like the look and feel of 90's PC games.

The game does have quite a few negative points, however, and these are compelling enough to keep me from whole-heartedly recommending the game. The 3D graphics occasionally look quite nice, but movement and combat reveals many glitches and visual quirks that sometimes hinder gameplay. The combat controls are also clunky and unresponsive, and I found that most battles consisted of mashing the buttons until the enemy dies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mix of Doom and Elder Scrolls December 8, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First thing I'd like to point out is that this game is very remniscent of the first couple elder scrolls games and that is right but essentially this game is smaller in scale. FF:TWoFTM is a dungeon crawler very similar to Elder Scrolls that is based off of the first installment of the book series of fighting Fantasy. In the book, you are a lone adventurer who travels to a mountain with red glowing vegetation on top called Firetop mountain. The mountain was once a Dwarven city but was taken over by a powerful Warlock named Zagor and his many Orc minions. It is said that Zagor has a treasure chest that may only open if you find it's two keys which are spread out very deep in the keep.

In the game, the goal is the same but the story is not nearly as deep as the book itself. You are an adventurer who takes a boat to the port village near Firetop Mountain and from their the quest begins. This game is beautifully detailed for a DS game, perhaps even better detailed than the actual first couple of Elder Scrolls games which many compare this to. This is not one of those games were the developers cheap out and make the environments look the same. The detail in this game is amazing as well with bloodstains on walls, papers littering the floor, pictures on walls, chairs, beds, etc. Everything makes the game feel like you are actually going through a dungeon or underground city rather than an endless maze with nothing interesting like Deep Labyrinth or Moon. The game is also very difficult and changes the enemies as you get stronger I.E. when you backtrack, you are going to see monsters on par with your level rather than really weak monsters that were hard when you originally passed through the area.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fighting Fantasy DS December 14, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I would like to say that I really like this game. It is a bit difficult at times, but my advice for to (if you buy it) is to check every room and talk to NPC's for hints/clues and such. I agree with the previous reviewer that it is similar to Elder Scrolls games (which are some of my favorite games). This is a fun sword & sorcery type of game even if you are not a fan of the books. Warning: this game is not for everyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what i expected May 9, 2013
By Eric
Verified Purchase
don't get me wrong this game was great in some aspects i've made up some pro's and con's

Pro's: -graphics are great for the 3ds/ds
-you level up every two enemy's you hit (awesome but very unusual for an rpg)
-controls are okay
Con's:-when picking locks if you fail you get points taken off your hp (wtf???!!)
-they throw you into the game expecting you know what to do
-the game does a pretty bad job of keeping up with your level when you go to shop for new weapons
-enemy's do not die as easily as you think (not even grunts)
-not enough potions/food in the store (hardly any selection)

overall i paid $15 i suggest don't pay even $10 if you see it for $5 yea sure get it i mean it was okay it just didnt do as good. BUT if you want a game that is 100x better buy Orcs and Elves (ds) it improves on everything this game didn't AND it came before this game oh and btw its made by some of the people who made DOOM so that should tell you something. Lastly i'm not trying to advertise another game just a slight suggestion
