Summary: I picked up The Dark Spire when it was new a few years back, and played it for awhile and then for whatever reason stopped playing. Recently, I dug it out and started a new party up to try and play again.

Summary: I love games like this and I always have. Building your party, strengths, style and alignment. The graphics and story are great and plays on the DSi very well. A pleasure to play and with the create character and a whole party for that matter.
Summary: If you grew up playing the old style 1st person D&D style game on the PC or even TRS80 Color Computer, then you will love this game! Takes only a few minutes to assemble a party and off you go into the dungeon for training and your quest.
