Giving the benefit of the doubt...

  • Summary: I am sorely craving a kick ass solid Western style RPG for the PSP. I almost peed when I saw this game on the upcoming titles list several years back, which I think was also about the time I was finishing up the Neverwinter Nights trilogy on PC. OK, so my pen and paper D&D background has holes in it the size of, something, but despite that there have been so many formats and installments of the franchise I think every gamer particularly into this genre has been touched...

Good depth, poor follow through.

  • Summary: Read the review : D&D fan not impressed, July 21, 2009 By Steven Rinck (Lisle, IL USA) He really hits a a lot of good points. Menu system is garbage at best, often find myself frustrated by it. Trading items from one character to another is like copying and pasting files from one folder to the next by keyboard alone. Playing you have two "speeds" to play at, Normal and "Chess mode".

Enjoyable but tedious

Sidewinder "koalani", Amazon

  • Summary: Not nearly as fun as many of the reviews I read here at Amazon suggested. Although I did enjoy it (and was thrilled with the inclusion of psionics), the game is often tedious, having to move characters individually as opposed to by groups, which really slowed down the progression of the game (at times almost to a standstill). Also, the game is riddled with glitches.

D & D without the social interaction, or endless variety.

Jason Poupard "Pope Impious", Amazon

  • Summary: For $2[...] I got what I expected. A steep learning curve, even though I already knew 3.5 rules (I had to keep looking up spells, as well as how the mind flayers kept murdering me). A large variety of character customization (but not enough faces). A paranoid experience brawling through dungeons (every step can get you smeared). A review with a ton of parenthetical asides (yup).

D&D fan not impressed

Steven Rinck, Amazon
8 January 2008
  • Summary: The only other "tactics" game I've played before this was Final Fantasy (both the original and the DS), so I had high hopes going into this. I imagined a game laid out basically the same way except using the very nice D&D 3.5 rules set. Sadly, the execution was mediocre at best. The game isn't very user friendly. I know the rules for this edition by heart, and because of that I'm able to create characters and play the game proficiently.

Mediocrity

Jonathan D. Oakley "PFC, US Army", Amazon
8 January 2008
  • Summary: Let's get right to the thing most people interested in buying a D&D game are going to be worried about: how faithfully does it interpret the rules of the game? The answer is, quite frankly, poorly. First and foremost, the ability to multiclass seems to be completely absent, which in and of itself almost completely disenfranchises this game from D&D 3.5 and its ease-of-multiclassing, build-your-own hero design.

Game keeps crashing

C. M. McKeown, Amazon
8 January 2008
  • Summary: I bought this game for my husband as a gift. He absolutely loves it and plays it almost everyday. However, I am so incredibly disappointed with the glitches. The game keeps crashing in the same spots. There is one particular mission that he tried to play 3 times and each time it would crash at the same place. He gave up on that mission, played a few more and then it happened again somewhere else in the game.

Clunky Interface but still alot of Fun

Eric Matern, Amazon
28 August 2007
  • Summary: I was very excited when I heard a D&D game was coming to the PSP. The good points are the ruleset 3.5. Follows the rules of D&D perfectly. The bad point is the clunky menu system and trading weapons. My characters are mostly encumbered all the time, and I can't figure out how to move items along, and what item is better than the next. All in all a fun game for the D&D fans, but if you aren't into the rules, pick up Untold Legends - brotherhood of the blade.

A great RPG for the PSP

  • Excerpt: Folowing the sucess of BG, BGII and Icewind dale Tactics uses the D&D gameworld as the backdrop. As with Temple of elemental evil the new 3.5 rules are used, complete with roll based turns and rules. Players can either quick start a campaign, (choosing pre-generated characters) or generate their own characters. A little dissapointing is the item purchase/transfer screens, which are slow, time consuming and can quickly become annoying.
  • Pros: Follows on from the BGII and Temple of Elemental Evil titles
  • Cons: Item purchasing and trade is frustrating
