Summary: don't get me wrong this game was great in some aspects i've made up some pro's and con's Pro's: -graphics are great for the 3ds/ds -you level up every two enemy's you hit (awesome but very unusual for an rpg) -controls are okay Con's:-when picking locks if you fail you get points taken off your hp (wtf???!!
Summary: Fighting Fantasy is an traditional Dungeon Crawler with eye catching 3D graphics like Metroid Prime Hunters. The only different is that Fighting Fantasy has no 3D modeled enemys. In FF the enemys are handcrafted 2D Sprites but this didn´t bother cause there are nice animated and the speed of the Game doesn´t step down because of that reason.
Summary: This game really stinks. I got it at GameStop for twenty bucks, which is way more than it's worth. Now that I've played it I wouldn't buy it again, but even so, it's a ten or fifteen dollar game at best. The graphics are far less than stellar, and while you're in a "3D" world, all the characters are 2D and simply spin to face you.
Summary: There aren't many first-person rpg's out there for the DS. Considering the DS's capabilities, this game is really a fine example of what the system is capable of, should the programmers be willing to put some extra effort in its making. You get a full 3d world to explore with caves, dungeons and other environments. Like in Metroid Prime Hunters, you can use the D pad to move and the stylus to aim/rotate view, which is very handy.
Summary: Well, although I felt compelled to complete this game, I wouldn't say its very good. Little things like locking up and saving data incorrectly happen from time to time. Also, the game is not particularly well balanced. Beatable, but you're going to have to work the system. It's the sort of game where there are many ways to build your character, but only a few 'right' ways.
The gamebook of the 80's finds a new home on the DS. Results mixed

Summary: I was a huge Fighting Fantasy gamebooks fan back in the late 80's and early 90's, so I regarded the release of "The Warlock of Firetop Mountain" with great interest. For those too young to remember, Fighting Fantasy books work like a "Choose Your Own Adventure" book crossed with Dungeons & Dragons gameplay, in which you must choose between branching paths that ultimately effect the outcome of the story.
Summary: I would like to say that I really like this game. It is a bit difficult at times, but my advice for to (if you buy it) is to check every room and talk to NPC's for hints/clues and such. I agree with the previous reviewer that it is similar to Elder Scrolls games (which are some of my favorite games). This is a fun sword & sorcery type of game even if you are not a fan of the books. Warning: this game is not for everyone.
Summary: First thing I'd like to point out is that this game is very remniscent of the first couple elder scrolls games and that is right but essentially this game is smaller in scale. FF:TWoFTM is a dungeon crawler very similar to Elder Scrolls that is based off of the first installment of the book series of fighting Fantasy. In the book, you are a lone adventurer who travels to a mountain with red glowing vegetation on top called Firetop mountain.
Summary: Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is a first-person RPG based on the gamebook of the same name which, fortunately, the developers make great usage of the source material. If you are familiar with the gamebook, then you'll recognize characters, places, and events all brought lovingly to life in the game. In terms of comparison, this game can be likened to a portable Elder Scrolls or Hexen.
