Summary: Take a beloved title that took risks in its own time, and port it to a platform that audiences would LOVE to see it done on. That's about as low-risk as it gets for game publishing. What that is NOT is an excuse to slap together something THIS half-assed and pawn it off as being any sort of product worth purchasing. First off, calling it "3D" title for the 3DS is a blatant lie. There is not a single 3D effect to be found. It doesn't even USE the device's 3D capability.
Summary: I expected a game that was ported to be compatible with 3DS. This game wasn't even in 3D, the graphics were entirely unchanged from what I assume the PC version was, and the playability was awful. The controls are clunky and at times frozen. The description of this game was misleading and I regret purchasing it. I put it down after ten minutes of fighting with the controls.
Summary: This game is terrible. I thought it'd be a nice reboot of the old PC game but nope...garbage. Graphics are ridiculously pixelated, the icons on the menu don't do anything, words on the map are unreadable, and the point&click is difficult to maneuver. And to top it all off, its not even 3D... There's a reason it was $10 at gamestop.
Summary: So this is what makes this port a failure. It doesn't use the 3d function of the 3ds or the touch screen function. Using the 3d screen and the joystick to navigate (which is very uncomfortable) is one sensible compromise, as would be using the lower screen as the main for navigation since its touch. It's the worst of both worlds! The port should not exist; buy it for someone you hate and thats about it.
Summary: First of all the graphics are exactly the same as on my PC in 1996; actually, they might be WORSE. There is a lot of pixelation, and the books and notes border on unreadable. Secondly, you use the joystick button (not the old fashioned cross, the round one ABOVE it) to move around, and personally my thumb gets tired! Finally, the game is released as a 3DS title, but there is nothing 3D about it!
