Conclusion: This game is so devoid of anything worth merit, that it is almost comical. Perhaps the lack of a strong RPG line-up on the Xbox puts more pressure on each RPG title that is released. That being said, the negatives of this game should have be evident long before it hit the store shelves. I can’t recommend this title as a purchase as it is difficult to even recommend it as a rental for die-hard RPG fans.
Conclusion: Metal Dungeon is a good example of innovation in a genre flooded with Final Fantasy clones, but the lack of an involving storyline and intuitive gameplay means you'll never actually care what happens to the characters. The idea is brilliant and it has the makings of a great game, but the finished article is lacking in a couple of areas that will need to be improved on if Panther wish to challenge Squaresoft's throne.
