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. Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of Ancient Arts, as well as the just released Warriors of the Lost Empire, are just as bland in gameplay as they are in their unoriginal titles.

  • 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.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: I play a lot of hack & slash games. I know they're far from the most high-brow of the RPG sub-genres, but I enjoy them. Of course, there are a lot of mediocre and downright terrible hack & slash games out there along with the good ones, but I usually manage to enjoy all but the worst of them. Dungeon Explorers: Warriors of Ancient Arts is definitely in the right genre for me, and it's not terrible, but did I enjoy it? You'll see.

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. Dafür ist das Gameplay einfach zu repetitiv und simpel. Auftrag holen, rein in den Dungeon, Ebene für Ebene abreißen und per Teleporter wieder nach Hause – Was geboten wird, ist einfach zu wenig.
  • 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
