Twenty Years is Too Long

Cheat Code Central
9 April 2008
  • Conclusion: What is it about decade late sequels that always manage to sour a classic? It seems that the developers of these remakes forget what made the originals so special, which is why the expectations can be set a little high when waiting for their release.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: The original Dungeon Explorer, by today's standards, is a boring generic dungeon-crawling RPG. The TG-16 version of the game was put on Wii's Virtual Console recently, and Hudson seems ready to revive the franchise with some new games.

  • Excerpt: Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of Ancient Arts for the DS is the first game from Hudson’s dungeon crawling property to be made since 1994’s Dungeon Explorer for the Sega CD. The series has come a long way from its roots as a Gauntlet clone – now it’s a Diablo one.

Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of Ancient Arts – Staff Review

RandomNPC
2 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Dungeon crawlers tend to have some fairly predictable faults; a weak plot, shallow characters, and overly simple combat are par for the course. Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of Ancient Arts has all these issues and more, compounded by a completion time that can hover around ten to fifteen hours.

  • Conclusion: Ich mag Hack & Slay-Rollenspiele ganz gerne und habe so die Stunden mit Dungeon Explorer nicht bereut. Dennoch muss gesagt werden, dass die simple Charakterentwicklung, die übersichtlichen Rollenspielelemente und die altbackene Story keinen vom Hocker reißen werden.
  • Pros: drei Rassen mit je drei Berufen, Rücksetzpunkte fair gesetzt, ganz nette Endgegnerkämpfe, lediglich vordergründig tiefgründig und damit auch für Rollenspielanfänger, simples Kampfsystem, Schnelltasten für Items, WFC, Multikartenspiel, atmosphärische Soundkulisse
  • Cons: durchschnittliche Story, fehlende Abwechslung, sehr schwache KI, für alte Hasen zu oberflächlich, tiefe Menüs ohne Touchscreen lästig, leider zu wenig Mitspieler, keine Zufallsdungeons, grob pixelig, wenig Details, kaum Effekte

Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of the Ancient Arts

  • Conclusion: Ja niin lähtee sankarimme matkaan. Peli etenee ripeästi luolasto kerrallaan, hirviöitä reaaliaikaisesti kurmoottaen ja esineitä keräillen ehdassa Diablo-klassikon hengessä. Pelimaailmana toimiva Westria vaikuttaa jo kättelyssä oudon tutulta ja vaikutelma vain vahvistuu pelin edetessä.
  • Pros: tiivis tempo, viihdyttävä
  • Cons: nähty jo monta kertaa, karmea ulkoasu
