  • Summary: Deep Labyrinth lets you explore a world populated by magical creatures and monstrous foes. Descend, if you dare, into the dark heart of the Labyrinth, in the first 3D first-person RPG for the Nintendo DS. Take advantage of the DS's dual screens and touch screen to explore dozens of dungeon levels, fighting hordes of hideous monsters in real-time with swords and spells. Two engrossing scenarios weave two amazing stories -- one for newcomers to role-playing games, and one for RPG veterans. [Atlus] Expand

    A total immersion experience, Deep Labyrinth exceeds my expectations as a gamer in terms of providing a locations in which I can take on numerous beasts, explore diverse and detailed locations and simply dive into a level of adventure and fun that seems vacant in many games appearing on the market.
  2. Fans of portable dungeon crawlers with touch-screen interaction, rejoice. This is the game you have been waiting for.

    It's like a faster, more fluid "King's Field," all the way down to the ugly, 3DO-quality graphics -- not everyone's cup of mead, to be certain, but still a satisfying first-person hack-n-slash for those who prefer to take their treasure-hunting on the go.

    For a game that's humble and not especially innovative, Deep Labyrinth is a title that, strangely, really feels like it belongs on the Nintendo DS. It's a little different and takes a few risks that don't pay off, but it ends up being a successful game in its genre.
  5. Despite quaint touches, this is cumbersome and wholly unoriginal. We didn't come here to get the mick taken out of us by talking mice, you know. [Nov 2006, p.71]
  6. But a clumsy game/ And terrible visuals/ Drag this down, way down.
  7. Wow, is Deep labyrinth ever boring. [Sept. 2006, p.106]

    This game is so repetitive and the enemies are usually a different-coloured copies. But the control of the Sword and the Magic system are really funny and incredible. It glimps a nice concept with some fails, but so good at all. Expand

    The control scheme does take some getting used to, but once you've got it down it's great fun to get all the monsters in the game! It has a classic Atlus RPG feel, and will no doubt become one of those rare DS games that everyone wants to get their hands on. Expand

    This game never really sold, but I still got it a few days ago for $12, and I must say it was worth it, for the most part the game is great, it only lacks replay, but the game is long enough to where that doesn't seem to be an issue. Most reviews say it's repeative, but that's not entirely true, I found the game to change a bit in every dungeon, always adding something to try and trick you up. Expand
