Summary: Atlus's Etrian Odyssey series, known as Yggdrasil Labyrinth in Japan, made a bit of a splash overseas, what with its heavy emphasis upon mapmaking on the stylus screen. The third installment of the series, Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City, continues this trend, with some new features that differentiate it from its predecessors, proving to be a fun experience in spite of its faults.
Summary: I gave this as a gift, but he gave it pretty rave reviews. He liked the skill trees and complexity. A good skill system and interesting combat go a long way to make a great RPG. He didn't say much about the plot, so I'm assuming it doesn't have much of one.
Summary: This is one of Atlus's best lines of games ever. It is fun and light but provides a challenge for even serious gamers. There are endless possibilities when lining up your party and a dungeon crawler has never been this epic. If you have never played Etrian odyssey and you are looking to step up your gaming, get this game.
They get better and better - E.O.s are the end all be all of dungeon crawlers

Summary: I have just started E.O. 4 and also have the download of the other newly released EO: The Millenium Girl, but I have to say that each E.O. in the series just gets better, truly complementing one another and though all of them are based on the same cartography / dungeon crawling turn based random combat model, every one adds new elements that make them incredibly unique, and E.O. 3 and 4 are no exception.
Good old school dungeon exploration, better than previous entry in the series.

Summary: If you like dungeon crawler, and grinding plus experimenting with your party set up, then this game is for you. The third entry of the series add a few tweaks that makes the game more bearable and enjoyable to play. All the classes are balanced and you can play in short burst. There are still some grinding required but it's not as bad. Graphic is good for DS.
Summary: Why I never heard of this series before. A shame. After I found this series existence 6 months ago I just needed to play it, what a ride I am having. It is an old school type of game for what I heard but I never in life played a game like this so for me is "new" old school. I can't just reccomend this series enough. Buy the 3 of them for the DS and go to the 3DS and play all of them.
