  • Excerpt: Shiren the Wanderer, a rogue-like RPG from Chunsoft, is a beastly vintage dungeon crawl. Randomized and tooth-and-nail difficult, it�s a rehash of a legacy-constructed Super Famicon title done extremely well � when you�re not ready to hurl the DS at the wall.

  • Excerpt: Chunsoft is a company with a long history of making, essentially, the same game over and over. They specialize in the realm of "rogue-like" games (a name whose derivation leads us back to a classic PC game using ASCII text as a graphic interface).

Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer (Nintendo DS) Review

Cubed³
25 March 2008
  • Summary: Shiren the Wanderer falls into the somewhat obscure genre of games known as roguelikes: a subset of role-playing games which borrow gameplay features (such as randomised dungeons, and severe consequences for death) from Rogue, an ASCII-fuelled PC title from the early 1980s.

  • Excerpt: Don't let Mystery Dungeon's brightly-colored, superdeformed, non-threatening, Zelda-esque, top-down presentation (on your still-shiny DS) lull you into a false sense of security: This game is an old-school wolf in new-school sheep's clothing, and it is out to kick your ass.

  • Conclusion: Obviously by now it's been established that Mystery Dungeon: Shiren The Wanderer isn't a new concept. It's not going to blow you away with crafty use of the innovative DS hardware, but if you've been at all anxious to give this series a try, March 11 grants that chance as Chunsoft's explorer enters...

Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer (DS) Review

WiiDS.co.uk
16 September 2008
  • Conclusion: While Shiren is an enjoyable and challenging adventure, it possibly takes the challenging part too far. It’s all well and good to have gameplay like this several years ago, but in today’s market, gamers expect a certain amount of leniency for performing badly.
  • Pros: Good remake, Nice visuals, Hard difficulty
  • Cons: Hard difficulty is sometimes too much, Less punishing mode would have been good, Wi-Fi could have been more fleshed out
