    Again, there’s absolutely nothing here that’ll derail your enjoyment of the series if you’ve enjoyed Etrian Odyssey for quite some time. And you’re not likely to find a more perfect jumping on point if you have yet to experience the series.

    As I said before, The Millennium Girl offers a fantastic opportunity for new players to dip their toes into Etrian Odyssey, as it provides the familiar sorts of characters we have grown to love in JRPGs while keeping intact the extremely strong foundations of the original game.

    Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl is a fairly solid game. While the early going can be a bit rough since money might be more spent on healing than buying new weapons and armor, the game’s mechanics and Story Mode’s story elements still make for a fairly sold game. This is one that newcomers and veterans alike should enjoy.

    Etrian Odyssey Untold largely succeeds at marrying the series’ gameplay with a more narrative-driven adventure, creating a unique take on the traditional Etrian Odyssey formula, while the Classic mode ensures that longtime fans will not be alienated by the game’s new direction.

    A lengthy, and hugely enjoyable, first person dungeon romp.

    The original Etrian Odyssey is remade with refined customization, enchanting visuals, and an intriguing story.

    Etrian Odyssey has never needed deeper or more developed plot, and the new parts of Millenium Girl are the least interesting ones. If you've played past games, there's little reason to jump into this latest entry — exploration is a lot less enticing when it's terrain you've already mapped before.

    I am in love with this game. That's, the short part.

    Now to the long one:

    I have played Etrian Odyssey since its first title came out. I have tried my best beating it, ended up cheating halfway through the game but deleted it as I ran past everything and it wasn't fun at all. Why am I mentioning this? Because Etrian Odyssey is hard. Etrian Odyssey is a game series based on exploration and preparing. One false step, one missed hit and its the end for you.

    The overall game is very much enjoyable. The graphics, mainly Anime-style, are very well drawn and you have a whole variety of them. About 4 for each class and additional ones for specific characters and NPCs.

    As you enter the game you are greeted with a beautiful sounding soundtrack that expands on the whole Labyrinth you will explore. However having played the original, the remakes just don't sound as good. They are still quite good though.

    And now we are already at the part that I love about this game. Everyone who has played this knows about the end of the game. Well "end". The big Twist about this game to be specific. And that is where the two new modes come into play. I myself already know the secrets and know whats coming for me but seeing how the characters in the story mode discover it for them-self makes it even better. It is like a Anime that you have to play along to unlock more and more the further you get. But of course the Story mode has a lot more to offer than the actual old classic mode. New maps, new quests and most importantly: New areas.

    This comes into play as I hear many people moaning about the fact that this game does not have a Over-world map. Correct me if I am wrong but I am pretty sure that the Over-world map came with later installments of the series. And as of right now I am very happy about the fact that they did not make a Over-world map. I see though where an Over-world map could come into play. it just wouldn't fit.

    If you want a challenging and interesting game to play than Etrian Odyssey, the series as a whole (except the Mystery Dungeon Spin-off) is a game you should play.

Maybe it's not as good as EO4, because of the unnecessary third difficulty setting, but it's a fantastic game in its own right. Now...if only the 6th stratum wasn't so dang scary. Expand

    What remains negative, is a bad, uncomfortable dungeon-design, a limited inventory, many craftable items that nobody in the story-party can use and a stupid auto-battle-ai, that attacks randomly and doesnt let the user set up any scripts.

    Speaking in scores, i would haven rated the original game with 70 points, while i rate the remake with 78 points

    Typical overrated Atlus trash. A game i should have liked, since i am an oldtime hardcore PC RPG fan, but if you think this game has anythingTypical overrated Atlus trash. A game i should have liked, since i am an oldtime hardcore PC RPG fan, but if you think this game has anything to do with the classics, you need to change your hobby and begin stamp collections.

    There is no challenge in this game. The gameplay mechanics are very simple and boring, all you have to do is grind like your life is worth nothing and you can throw hours upon hours in the garbage bin. Grind=win type of game, like most of Atlus trash, with a nice anime/manga presentation to appeal to the kiddies.

    Just avoid if you value your time.
