RadarPlays - Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara

Dungeons & Dragons may be the most famous pen and paper role-playing game, but in the early 1990s, Capcom found a way to turn it into one of the deeper brawlers of its era. While not exactly head of the class anymore, both arcade entries in the franchise hold up pretty well as HD remakes on XBLA, PSN, and Steam. Get an extended look at the game in today's RadarPlays, and then be sure to check @GamesRadar on Twitter where we'll be giving away XBLA and PSN codes tomorrow, and then on Wednesday we'll be livestreaming the game and giving away Steam codes on the live video!

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past on RadarPlays Retro, Wednesdays we change things up to whatever we feel like playing with RadarPlays Shuffle, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of in RadarPlays Freaky. We'll also release RadarPlays for all the new releases, so be sure to check back!

    Aw Paula Deen joke haha. This looks good the demo didn't give it credit. I thought each thing was one very short fight. Anyway I like to see more of these 2d games. I can go for a new Castlevania on non portable systems but not 3d. I will see if I can talk my friend to get it on steam.

    Anyone else think that smoothing filter they add to every classic game looks terrible? I really think old games look better in their pixelated glory, not as blurry smudged blobs

    nothing brings a game into the modern era better than a nice coat of vaseline. :)

    This game is awesome. It's a shame you guys like to go into these things without reading the instructions, because in Shadows of Mystara, there are a ton of moves. Every character can use a flash kick (up down attack for a unique move), a ground slide, a charging attack, and a desperation attack. Add into that the inventory/magic system and it's so much more than a standard beat 'em up. Also, Henry setting Cooper on fire made me laugh so hard I had to stop the video for a minute.

    Can you guys play Aladdin from the Genesis? It was the only game I owned for the system when I was a kid, and I remember playing the hell out of it!
