3D Dot Game Heroes

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: 3D Dot Game Heroes is one of the most retro games Family Friendly Gaming has ever had the honor of playing. This Playstation 3 (PS3) video game includes so many references to previous role playing games that part of the fun is finding them all. Most everything in this game is done with little blocks. Hitting enemies with your giant sword will have all of the blocks scatter across the ground/floor. For me this brings up memories of the Lego video games.

  • Pros: Perfectly emulates classic gameplay, Full of funny in-jokes, Delivers on its promise of old school fun
  • Cons: Lots of jokes will go over the heads of younger gamers, Some bits are just outdated, instead of nostalgic, Suffering from retro-fatigue when finished

  • Excerpt: 3D Dot Game Heroes is like an NES Zelda doppelgänger on psychotropic drugs. Just look at it for God's sake. It's also the most honest and accurate Zelda clone I've ever known to exist. The developers don't even pretend that they might have thought up the gameplay elements themselves, and that sets 3DDGH apart from shameless Zelda rip-offs. The game is a throwback to gaming's beloved past, replete with references to ancient games and playfully pixilated graphics.

  • Summary: If you are an old-school gamer, someone itching for a challenge or someone looking for something that resembles Zelda on the PS3, 3D Dot Game Heroes is the game for you. The game can be challenging and sometimes frustrating, but there is no doubt that it is fun, charming and a great experience. 3D Dot Game Heroes is a prime example that you don’t need a budget in the dozens of millions of dollars to put together a great game.

Review: 3D Dot Game Heroes (Sony PS3)

Diehard GameFAN
3 August 2010
  • Summary: 3D Dot Game Heroes is not a bad game by any stretch. It’s a competent Zelda wannabe, and old school fans could spend the entire game picking out references to other games. However, judged purely as a game, this game is not as good when placed alongside The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past . It has fewer of everything than the game it’s patterned after, which is inexcusable considering the better game is almost nineteen years old.

Fun, creative retro adventure serves as homage/satire.

Common Sense Media
2 August 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that 3-D Dot Game Heroes is a satire with non-graphic violence (i.e. cartoony, unrealistic fighting) that is meant to be humorous. The hero's sword, for instance, can be big enough to almost fill the screen at times. Parents should also be aware that players can upload custom-created characters to the PlayStation Network and that there's no guarantee those characters will be completely unobjectionable.

3D Dot Game Heroes Review

  • Excerpt: In preparation for this review, I looked up the word 'nostalgia' in the dictionary, not because my grasp on the English language was so slender that the meaning eluded me – but because I was hoping it might shed some light on the confusion I had felt as I played 3D Dot Game Heroes. The definition read: a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time – a sound description you might surmise.
