Tactics but with a Dungeons & Dragons touch
8 October 2011
Summary: I have been trying to find this game for about a year now, all my local stores NEVER had a copy so when my daughter gave me an amazon gift card for my birthday I figured why not. I got the game and put it into my PSP and followed the tutorial (since i've never played it before). It was very much like Final Fantasy Tactics in its turned based playstyle with familiar elements like setting your characters on the map at starting places, taking turns between my characters...

Summary: If you're a hard core D&D player, you'll love the level of detail found in Dungeons & Dragons Tactics PSP. If you haven't played D&D before, it might take you a while to get a hang of all of the attributes here. This is a role playing game with every aspect under control. You don't just run in a mad ax-flailing rush as quickly as you can move your controller. Instead, each character can only move X blocks a turn.
Summary: D&D fans rejoice! Finally a game to implement the 3.5 rulebook with psionic characters! You can finally put those long dormant mental powers to use using all the characters designed in the d20 D&D 3.5 system in this game. The downside is, this is one your PSP, which isn't that great a platform for party-based/turn-based adventuring. I can explain. First of all, this game is amazing.
Summary: It's a great game if you play D&D 3.5 or even 4 (but not so much for 4ed players) but for people new to the game it's a little challenging at first and could start off a bit slow. I'd still recommend this game for psp users who want to play D&D but can't for some reason.
Summary: My husband is an avid gamer and when he has to go away for duty with the Marines he gets rather cut off (Boot Camp broke his WoW addiction). So when his birthday was coming up and bought him this game only having read the reviews. Let me tell you this has been the hardest game for him to play but he is loving the challenge. It takes his mind off the Marines completely.
Summary: The game is great, though it is extremely difficult to understand and play correctly because it is so rules heavy, and this limits the enjoyment for people who have no experience with the table top version of the game. The rules are implemented quite nicely. OTOH, if you know the rules prior to playing this you'll find it way too easy. It does lack important aspects of the game, such as random encounters and a possible "automatic" threat releveling for missions.
Fun game- really keeps the tradition and gameplay of D&D

Summary: I used to play D&D back when I was a teenager, and I was currently looking for a time wasting game for traveling that was turn based. Since Risk hasn't been rehashed, I decided to give it a shot. From what I remember about D&D, this game seems to follow the rules exactly. The graphics are good, and the game plays well. I dig it.
Summary: This game is great if you like D&D. If you dont then you wont have a clue wat is going on in the game. The game can be kinda slow but it can get tense. So if you like D&D or know how to play it get this game.
Summary: ...this game would get a much lower review. The developers did a decent job of taking the D&D rules and putting them on the PSP. A few things are missing, but that's understandable. This issue comes in with the difficulty. D&D rules say encounters should be scaled so you can get through 4 of them before resting. The game doesn't do that. I find myself having to rest every battle or 2. Also, monsters do not always match the available equipment to fight them.
Summary: Seems to me a lot of reviews that trash this game are really unfair. I loved it and really missed it once it was over. I am a Dungeons and Dragons player and I'll admit that the fact that this game is based on DnD rules was a major draw for me. Lets just say it's very satisfying to see all the classes and races and items you know so well and to form your own well balanced party to kill stuff and find treasure. That's what it boils down to and that's what it delivers.
