Dungeon & Dragons Tactics
8 February 2008
Excerpt: Although I am not a D&D fan but I do like playing any RPG like games that involve some action and strategy. Dungeons and Dragons Tactics for the Sony PSP is a game that seemed to have some of these elements I was looking for. Developed by Kuju Entertainment and published by Atari it was a perfect game to take on the road or to work to explore the almost cultish world of a D&D adventure.
Excerpt: Many people were eagerly awaiting the arrival of Dungeons and Dragons: Tactics to store shelves. In this corner, you had the D&D fans salivating at the prospect of a solid turn based game that would give a more true experience of the game that mirrored the pen and paper version. In the other corner you will find the turn based strategy enthusiasts, salivating at a game that promised strong character customization and plenty of options that would allow them to approach...
Excerpt: Dungeons & Dragons: Tactics is a pretty enough game, despite the small screen format of the PSP. While the number of character images is smaller than I expected, the fact that each character model has eleven heads to choose from allows for the ability to more easily distinguish between characters. This is useful, as you will personally be controlling up to six.
Excerpt: It is 2007, and Dungeons and Dragons - in one form or another - has been entertaining fans for over 30 years, and now for the first time, the franchise comes to Sony's PSP. This means being able to play D&D anytime and anywhere, alone or with friends. There have, of course, been a few deviations to the rules in order to allow the game to work optimally on the PSP.
Conclusion: This is a really solid SRPG that adheres to the D&D rules and mythos as much as possible without reducing the fun factor. I recommend it for anyone who likes SRPGs in general, and even more so if you're deaf.
Excerpt: So to the game at hand. Dungeons and Dragons: Tactics is set to provide you with all your D&D needs that can fit in your pocket. From the opening menu screen with it's sweeping soundtrack you know you are in for a truly epic experience. You begin the game by creating your character, and or party of characters with a pretty in depth character generator.
Pros: Awesome Character Portraits, Nice spell effects, Tons of gameplay and depth
Excerpt: Rarely is sorting through after-battle loot handled as poorly as it is in Dungeons & Dragons Tactics. While this PSP title from Kuju Entertainment is a mostly satisfying look at hardcore role playing, courtesy of slavish attention to D&D's version 3.5 rule set, a spectacularly awkward interface slows the action to a crawl both before and after the long swords come out.
Pros: Great handling of the D&D rule set, Lengthy campaign and good D&D-styled RPG feel
Cons: Clumsy interface, Gloomy graphics and odd animations, Awkward camera angles, Second-rate multiplayer
Excerpt: D&D has been around for a long time. Starting as nothing more than some paperback rulebooks and a complicated set of rules, it has blossomed into a system upon which many other RPGs have been based on. There are video games, miniature games and even movies that have been spawned from this license, all with widely varying quality.
Conclusion: Anywho, if you like the tactical genre, Dungeons and Dragons is worth a play. It is a solid tactical game and is very deep when it comes to items and weaponry. Character creation is great and the graphics are very well done. It doesn’t happen often but this is a PSP game that I would whole-heartedly suggest to someone I like and want to keep talking to after they are done with the game.
Excerpt: Name: Dungeons and Dragons Tactics Genre: Tactics RPG Platform: PSP Dungeons and Dragons has shaped video games since the first nerd locked himself in his basement with some friends instead of going out for the night. From Final Fantasy to World of Warcraft, every single RPG created takes one thing or another from D&D and tries to make it a video game.
