The classic "Choose Your Own Adventure" contemporary comes to the DS, but you'll likely just choose to go back to the book.

  • Conclusion: It's in those moments where Fighting Fantasy shines, and why this can still be a fun and engaging dungeon-crawler -- and why there might be hope for any future sequel, should developer Big Blue Bubble and publisher Aspyr team up to adapt another of the many different Fighting Fantasy gamebooks into a video game again.

  • Excerpt: Ever read a "Choose Your Own Adventure" novel? I remember in 5th grade when my teacher told me that stories were written in first person, third person omniscient, or third person limited. I said "some books are written entirely in second person!" When she didn't believe me, I took her to the school library and pulled out a Choose Your Own Adventure novel. She said, "That doesn't count." Why wouldn't it count? Those books were awesome!

  • Conclusion: RPG fans should make it a point to play this sleeper gem. While certainly not perfect, it's quite good and I think it's safe to say it's one of the best RPGs on the platform to date.

  • Conclusion: Fans of Dark Spire and other old-school dungeon crawlers will find solace, but most gamers will likely quit a few hours in.
