Summary: I've been playing this game for 36 hours already, and I can't even tell how much more there is to it. I keep asking myself "when is it going to be over." For me it's gotten to that level of boredom. Even though I haven't finished it yet, I believe I qualify for writing a review at this point. I purchased the game because I like dungeon trolling games. I started enjoying them when I first played Diablo.
Summary: I had high hopes for Mazes of Fate DS, but after an hour of solid playing I've come to some conclusions. The game, at first glance seems awesome, you can choose one of several pre-set character types, like a warrior, thief, etc..or you can completely make your own, setting your skill points where you want em, creating a unique character. Then you start playing and really see how choppy and bad the graphics are, well, graphics aren't everything right?
Summary: A very addictive little game with an interesting plot and decent graphics. I liked this game, although buyers be where, the game isn't called Mazes of Fates to be cute. All of the dungeons in this game are long, complex, mazes. If you are the type that loves mouse-quest type mazes you will probably love this game, although for most people this game will probably cure you of any desire to ever do a maze again.
Summary: I lucked into finding this game on Amazon while browsing DS RPGs, and it struck me as odd that I had never heard of the game before. The customer reviews were all 5 stars, so I figured I'd give it a shot. Being a fan of the ancient PC game Bard's Tale, this game answers my prayers for a game similar to it on a modern system. It's definitely modernized, but it maintains a classic feel. To start off, you choose a charcter or "make" your own.
Summary: I have now had this game for a while and I have to say it never gets dull. The game play is excellent, but its the story and the hook that really amazes me everytime I play it. In terms of fun factor, this game holds its own. I like Mazes 3D much more than the original one because it introduces so many new factors to the game.
Suprisingly fun RPG with very good graphics for a handheld

Summary: This is a fun little game. It adds a lot of the challenging elements of console RPGs in a tight little package. I was immediately surprised by how captivating it is on the small screen. You move around the cities in 3rd person view and interact with the dungeons in 1st person. Traveling between areas is quick in mini-map view. The dialog is interesting without a lot of gibberish that gets in the way (yes Final Fantasy, I'm looking at you).
Summary: This is a game that you can be unfamiliar with this genre and jump right into the adventure. It has a very easy story to follow but there are many Dungeons and Caves to explore that feel never ending. These dungeons are huge with hidden walls and switches with a never ending supply of items, if you know how to search... HINT HINT! You will put a lot of time into this game not only going through the story line but searching for hours in multi-floored caves/dungeons.
Summary: Those of you who played the first one on the game boy will be pleasantly surprised at how much better this version is. The fun factor alone is what really keeps you glued to your DS. The game looks and feels amazing, the game play is very entertaining and makes for a dangerously addictive game. Anyone who likes dark RPG games should run to the store and grab the game.
