Typical RPG But Fun Anyway. GENERAL GUIDE TO THE GAME AS WELL

Nathan T., Amazon
30 June 2010
  • Summary: The game, in all honesty, nothing really special - graphic, character, and gameplay-wise. It is similar to most other RPGs. However, it is a fun game nonetheless. It is a hardcore dungeon crawler. You can only save in town.

Tedious timewaster

Rorke Haining, Amazon
14 September 2008
  • Summary: I'm middle-aged, male, and a lifelong gamer. I've forgotten more games than most people ever learn how to play. I love RPGs in particular and have played many easy and hard RPGs through to completion. I can honestly say, this is the worst RPG that I've ever bothered to finish.

Sometimes I like my hand held...

Jen, Amazon
14 September 2008
  • Summary: Who has time in this day and age to try to figure things out for themselves? I'd much rather have someone just tell me where to go and what to do so I can be done with it and move onto the next game.

From a fanboy

Daniel J. Shatz, Amazon
14 September 2008
  • Summary: I loved Etrian odyssey 2 and 3. So much that I have a bunch of rpgs I need to finish and I'm still replaying 3 as we speak. But as much as I hate to say it I can't recommend this one. First of all unless you have hours to kill or you like buying warp wires all the time don't bother starting a game.

Old school game with a twist

Thomas Durant, Amazon
5 September 2008
  • Summary: Not a bad turned based RPG, with the nice twist that you have to map the floor of the dungeon as you go along. The game will most likely interest those who really live for classic RPG dungeon crawls and are more interested in game play than fancy graphics.

The first, but not the best.

Ezra Needham, Amazon
5 September 2008
  • Summary: I love these old-school JRPGs, and the Etrian Odyssey series takes the cake in modern, turn-based old-school style games. I played this one after playing Etrian Odyssey 4, and it is interesting seeing its ancestor.

A hard game to love

arch69, Amazon
8 September 2008
  • Summary: I love rpg's but found this far too slow. I dont mind level grinding but your characters level up far too slowly and it takes forever too gather money for new equipment. I know the game has its fans but its not for me.

Somewhat boring, lots of grinding and no replayability

Mr. S. A. Roome, Amazon
8 September 2008
  • Summary: The game is extremely boring, you spend absolutely ages killing the same monsters over and over to move on a little. There are some nice ideas in the game but it it is spoilt by this and being very difficult.

Etrian Odyssey

Romain Delaforge, Amazon
8 September 2008
  • Summary: Un petit RPG qui est très sympa de premier abord, dans lequel l'aventure se déroule dans des labyrinthes. Cependant, le jeu devient rapidement lassant, la progression étant relativement lente.
