    Despite the faults, From the Abyss is a solid dungeon crawler. It does what it does well for the genre, and it is very easy to pick up and play. In the long run however, it's not going to be memorable game.
  2. Sad to say, From the Abyss is an extremely unremarkable game through-and-through. From the visual style and plot to the game mechanics, it's all been done before in some form or another. The good news in all of this is the game still offers a good time for fans of the genre.
  3. All in all I can only recommend the game. It's a nice hack'n'slay on the DS with a lot of roleplaying elements and action!
  4. Ultimately, From the Abyss won't enter history for having set any milestone within the console portfolio, because although it has a good presentation, its concept can result repetitive for players expecting a good blend between action and story. This is a title devoted only to dungeon brawling, with hours and hours of killing and lots of levels to explore.
  5. There aren't enough carrots dangled under your nose to keep you crawling through the monotony of randomly generated dungeons, and the text-based.
  6. It's not that From the Abyss is a bad game. It's just that it doesn't do anything interesting or innovative.
