Summary: It's boring. There's really nothing much to say. Sure, the nostalgia hits when you play it but it wears off rather quickly. Perhaps its a game for those who like the overal theme of the original Zelda and Final Fantasy for the Super Nintendo.
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 mentioned in other reviews, if you like The Legend of Zelda, especially A Link to the Past (the Super Nintendo release) then you'll like this game. It's not so much a tribute, as a direct ripoff; I'm amazed they got this past Nintendo's lawyers... boomerang, arrows, bombs, hookshot, sword, shield, multi-level dungeons with puzzle rooms, annoying fairies, princesses in distress, heart containers, it's all here. This isn't really a bad thing, however...
Summary: First of all, there is nothing wrong with this game. It's a good solid action/RPG in the same vein as the original Legend of Zelda. I knew this going into it and was extremely excited to play a game based on such a classic. However, I quickly found myself not being very interested in playing any more. The old and outdated gameplay really doesn't hold up as well as I thought it would compared to modern games.

Summary: The game is cute, and not difficult to play, but it is more suitable for 13 and under, I believe. It gets boring for older kids and adults...at least that is true at our house. I do recommend it as a fun game for the littlest gamers.
Summary: If you liked the original Zelda, you'll enjoy this game. 3D Dot Game Heroes is almost exactly the same type of game. It's an interesting homage to Zelda and if you take it for what it is then it's a great game. I personally put it down after the 3rd Castle, but may pick it up again one day after I've grown bored with other games. It's not an awful game, but I feel like I've played it before.

Summary: OK, so, if you're an old school gamer looking for a new school twist, look no further! Well... unless you are wanting the twist, because it isn't here. I don't know exactly why this game doesn't appeal to me that much. I made it in a couple of hours - maybe that wasn't long enough - and just couldn't stay engaged. There was nothing particularly unique about the game compared to all of the old RPGs you can play on your old systems or on a ROM on your computer.
Summary: This game obviously isn't about top-notch graphics, it's about being fun to play. Does it succeed on that front? For me, not entirely. Sure it's a fun game at first, but after a few hours I just found myself wanting to break out the old Game Boy and play the original Legend of Zelda game this is clearly hearkening back to. If it gets better later in the game, it didn't keep me interested long enough to get that far.
Summary: The short and sweet of it: 3D Dot Game Heroes is a rip-off of the NES Zelda game. The game isn't subtle about it, either, even to the point of lifting Zelda-meme lines such as "...it's not safe to go alone..." wholesale and delivering them up. See, that's the joke. You know, and the game knows, and the game's designers know that this is a deliberate ripoff of Zelda, all done in the name of glorious nostalgia.
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.
