GamesRadar

  • 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  • Cons: Lots of jokes will go over the heads of younger gamers, Some bits are just outdated, instead of nostalgic, Suffering from retro-fatigue when finished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.

  • Excerpt: Any PC driving game fan will know that SimBin have an excellent pedigree and reputation in top class driving simulations, having previously released games such as GTR Evolution and Race 07. Race On is an expansion pack for Race 07, which was originally released way back in 2006, and is getting a little long in the tooth now. It is not a standalone game, so you do need Race 07 to play it.

  • Excerpt: Let us not be fooled by the fact that this game is in a 3D perspective nor that it is on the PS3. The truth is you have played this game before possibly many times. 3D Dot Game Heroes is essentially a 3D perspective Legend of Zelda, but most reviews get it wrong by stating it's going back to the 8-bit era and I disagree. This game is clearly a love letter to the Legend of Zelda series that is not up for contestation.

3D Dot Game Heroes Review

ME Gamers
8 June 2010
  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I’m going to start off my review by saying that this game shouldn’t have been called “3D Dot Game Heroes”, but should have just been dubbed “3D Zelda” instead. 3D Dot Game Heroes borrows heavily from The Legend of Zelda in many areas, and while the game has enough originality to stand on its own, there are many references to the NES days of old, so much so that it’s often hard to decide if the game is a tribute or just a blatant rip-off.

3D Dot Game Heroes Review

DailyGame
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: How often do you think back to the golden age of video games and long for the top down action that was The Legend of Zelda or the wandering of maps that Dragon Age brought to you on your NES? Short of either hooking up your classic system to your fancy new TV, or some other unscrupulous method — playing these games was tough to accomplish.

  • Conclusion: 3D Dot Game Heroes is fun for a while, but its nostalgia factor wears off too soon, and gamers are left with a title that is more fun to look at than it is to play.
