The Dark Spire – NDS – 1st Person Dungeon – First Impression

This game play similar to Class of Heroes, only with less people. You still have people in the back that can’t fight…however with class restrictions, they won’t be able to get weapons to fight in the front at all. I might go and remake my party to compensate for this.

So far though I’ve been enjoying the game play, I really wish they have a middle ground on the Modern/Classic dungeon, as I love the classic enemies and the dudes, but I want more than lines for the walls. Something more like the newer remakes of the old Wizardry, or Eye of the Beholder. Something sprite art, but more than lines.

Also, I like classic mode as the music sounds better. :3

There are no voices in this game.. at least not yet. So no worries about dubbing..

Class of Heroes – PSP – 1st Person Dungeon – First Impression

I picked up Class of Heroes and Dark Spire wanting to satisfy my dungeon crawling spot.

My first impression is that the game seems a little haphazard. One of the beginning quests want you to go to the inner sanctum of a dungeon to meet the professor there. However there are one hit kill enemies in the newbie dungeon. Not even Etrian Odyssey was that hard. Also, the back row people can’t attack, not even for half damage. This wouldn’t be so bad if the ranged weapons were actually affordable, which they are not. So, I ended up spending a good chunk of my money on revives :P

The game does have voices, the good part is that they are not dubbed, which is unlike Atlus to not rip them out.
