Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara Review (Xbox 360)

Softpedia
8 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I have fond memories of playing Golden Axe on arcade machines for many hours before I was 10, and I came to the new Capcom release expecting something similar in many ways, but I discovered a game that was, from a lot of points of view, way ahead of its time. At its core, there is a beat’em up, a game where you choose a character and then proceed to use the various types of attacks and movement in order to evade attacks from an assortment of enemies before taking them...
  • Pros: + Classic beat'em up design, + Dungeons & Dragons monsters, + Meta gaming options
  • Cons: - Limited mechanics, - Graphics will not appeal to modern gamers

19 June 2013
  • Excerpt: When some people hear the words “ Dungeons & Dragons ,” they inevitably picture a group of guys sitting around a card table, armed with 20-sided dice and stacks of thick, well-worn rulebooks. Capcom’s classic coin-op interpretation, however, took the property out of the basement and into the arcade, fusing D&D ’s famous fantasy universe and party-based adventuring with colorful, easy-to-grasp action.
  • Pros: + Two classic arcade games, perfectly re-created and available on consoles in North America for the first time., +
  • Cons: ? The Elf can transform enemies into pigs and other helpless animals!
