  1. Dreamcast owners looking for the "Diablo" experience on their console will have a good time with Record of Lodoss War.
  2. Never quite unique enough to make me separate the words 'Diablo' and 'clone' from the back of my mind throughout most of the length of my adventure.
  3. In short form: If you like "Diablo," you'll like Lodoss. If not, steer clear. Just don't pick it up expecting the anime itself in game form.
  4. Everything looks rather dated, characters have terribly jointed bodies, the graphics seem washed out, and the animation is pretty stiff in spots.
  5. A reasonably deep and engaging experience that will please both advocates of "Diablo"-style hack-and-slash as well as fans of the anime series. There's a lot of solid gameplay lurking below the lustreless exterior.
  6. Too repetitive and unimaginative to hold your interest for long.
