Etrian Odyssey review

  • Lots of freedom
  • Huge mazes to explore
  • Vibrant text and dialogue
  • Slow-starting story
  • Trial-and-error situations
  • Forgetting to buy warp mid-dungeon

Some people, of course, will love all of this. Players who have grown up with the likes of Final Fantasy, however, will be unimpressed with Etrian Odyssey. They had best stay away from this title, as it’s designed with a specific type of gamer in mind. If you’re not in this group, you’re probably not going to like this game, plain and simple - but if you long to go back to the very basics of what RPGs are about, without fancy modern window dressing, you’ll find a lot to love about Etrian Odyssey.

    Also, shopping for items is a pain the a** in this game too. But it has it's moments of satisfaction, like when you finally beat a massive, annoying boss.
