The computer can also help you out during character creation, again sparing some confusion for players unfamiliar with 3rd Edition D&D rules. Even the most basic aspects of a character, such as their job class, species, alignment and portrait, can be automatically assigned by the computer if you want. This takes all the fun out of character-creation, but given that you'll need a party of four to six of them, all with varying and complementary talents, you can be forgiven for wanting to rush through.
The load times in the unfinished version we played were pretty lengthy, but D&D Tactics is rapidly shaping up to be one of the PSP's more technically impressive games, as well as one of the most realistic tactics games we've ever seen. The missions we tried out were fun and involving (but a little tedious, once they started to run too long), and we get the distinct feeling that we've only just scratched the surface. Assuming you've got the patience to delve deep into it (and if you've read this far, you probably do), Dungeons & Dragons Tactics could be the game that eats up your summer.
