Summary: 3D Dot Game Heroes is a unique game for its time. Its basically LoZ: Link to the Past redone with blocks. Compared to Link to the Past this game would fall REALLY flat. But anywho, if your a fan of RPG's and been wanting a classis Zelda like feel this is it.
Summary: As soon as the game started I was thought to myself "this all looks familiar". If you're a long time gamer then it will to you too. It's a BLATANT rip-off of The Legend of Zelda:A Link to the Past. The map is laid our the same, the bosses and enemies are similar as well as the sound and music. All they did was dress it all up in a hip and fancy pixel format (that gets old in a hurry) and sell it cheap.
Summary: The game is not as great as everyone made it sound. The dungeons are fun, but the problem is the fact that the game is missing the heart and soul that Zelda has. There is no NPC character development at all, and it feels a bit like homework running errands and trying to make sure you've talked to everyone before going through to the next dungeon (the game doesn't lead you to it; it counts on your slavish re-exploring like in Nintendo days for you to stumble upon them).
Summary: Maybe I wasn't the right kind of person for this kind of game, I never really grew up with games like Zelda so I couldn't see much of the charm behind this game. For what it's worth, creating a 3d sprite character was fun and the combat mechanics were somewhat challenging (again, never played zelda).
Summary: Got it as a gift, avid gamer boyfriend seemed pretty happy with it, spent an enjoyable morning watching him play it, and had a go myself. Very easy controls and objectives, map is a little off. No idea what else to say as not a gamer myself.
Summary: Okay, so... it's basically a parody/homage to the old NES Zelda games, but 3DDGH is a little too outdated feeling in it's gameplay for it's own good. It's a single amusing joke that gets less funny as the game goes on, and boy does it go on, because I don't recall the old NES Zeldas taking a dozen hours to finish.
