    While there is nothing particularly exceptional about Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of Ancient Arts, there's also no major flaws.
  2. 70
    Granted, Dungeon Explorer lacks some of that proper execution, particularly with the graphics and the storytelling, but overall, it's not a bad game.
  3. While the game won't be mistaken for something on a scale with Final Fantasy, it does push old-school dungeon-crawler buttons that will trigger fond memories in veteran players. [Mar 2008, p.85]
  4. Unfortunately, while the intimidation that comes along with many a dungeon crawler is lacking here, so too is an overall sense of polish: control and combat are just too stiff, and character and monster sprites are thoroughly bland. [Mar 2008, p.66]
  5. 60
    You get exactly what you pay for with Dungeon Explorer: Warriors of Ancient Arts. There are dungeons, and players explore them as warriors, using Arts. It's just that basic, and that only lasts so long.
  6. 55
    It's got a solid, enjoyable core experience, but Hudson isn't able to deliver enough quality content for the context.
  7. This is too creaky to forgive. [June 2008, p.55]
