Summary: This game is progressing with balanced story-line, and typical dungeon-crawler combat system, fair character develop system,and funny alchemistical system,I really spent lots of time on this game. This is a successful wizardry-like game, recommended to classic RPG players.
Summary: As stated, this is the spiritual successor to the PC wizardry games. As far as I know, it is only available for PSP. The psn download is less expensive. There is no dialogue between individual characters. You are addressed as a group by some npc's. In a way this is lime a single-person MMO, because you can have multiple parties and, for instance, send one party to retrieve the remains or items of another party. The rpg aspect is not deep.
Summary: The first hours will be too hard even for experienced players. The weakest monsters may kill your whole party, and you will find yourself going back to the Academy every 5 minutes to rest and heal.. But after your characters gain a couple of levels and you start crafting better weapons and equipment, you will enjoy the game. And after that, it's actually easy despite the overwhelming beginngin. In short, this is a good dungeon crawler once you understand the basics.
Summary: Okay, the interface may be a bit non-friendly but it's the best dungeon crawler on portables now IMO. Too bad Atlus hasn't announced the second part yet, please buy this so we can experience the better version in English.
Summary: Just save yourself $[...] and have one of your buddies kick you in the nuts over and over and over. There's a lot of game here. It didn't need to be as hard as it is. I'm all for old school. I played (and very much enjoyed) the original Bards Tale games. So this definitely isn't coming from a 12 year old who has no concept of "hard" video games. This is hard just for the sake of being hard.
Summary: The weak minded & people who don't like challenges turn back now. You will not like this game. This game is very addicting once you figure out it. You can start off with their pre-made characters or enroll your own characters. I suggest using their characters to learn the basics of the game but don't worry, you can have a total of a 100 characters. So, don't forget to make your own. You get to pick Gender, Race, Alignment, and Major.
Summary: Let me reiterate the difficulty of this game.....its very hard, even for seasoned RPG'ers. You will have a blast creating your guild and I especially liked the "rolling up" your characters aspect, even if all you have to do is go back a screen until you get the points you want. Honestly I spent about an hour and a half deleting the pre-made characters and creating about 40 characters I would be able to pick from and use for the game....then I got into the actually game.
Summary: First of all, I want to say that this is a hardcore old school RPG, if that concept doesn't interest you, you really will end up with no interest in this title at all. You can and will die permanantly in this game and this can be a rather hard game overall. I personally enjoy that kind of challenge and still didn't like the game for other reasons, but this title will offer you nothing if you don't like the old school dungeon crawler type RPGs.
Summary: Class of Heroes is an RPG in the style of old-school dungeon crawlers. The character creation, interface, and dungeons are all based on such. If you are familiar with that genre, then you'll absolutely love this game. For anyone else, though, this game may be hard to enjoy. Exploring, managing inventory, and using alchemy to create equipment, among other things, are all somewhat tedious and time consuming.
Hardcore Dungeon Exploration done in Anime-inspired Wizardy-style

Summary: This game is modeled after the Wizardry franchise, a fairly unforgiving old-school dungeon crawler. If you don't know what that is, you will have a high learning curve in getting into this game. If Final Fantasy is your idea of an RPG, you will find this game too hard. Having enjoyed the Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord on my Nintendo, I loved the game. The dialogue is extremely funny, and the maps are interesting (some might say frustrating).
