  • 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.

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 .

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.

  • 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.
