    If you can find the GBA version of Mazes of Fate, it might be worth a snag. If you're into old school first-person dungeon exploring, and don’t mind a heavy difficulty, then it can be enjoyable. That being said, don’t even think about picking up the DS version.

    Don't let the updated graphics and dual-screen presentation fool you. This game was (and is) better on the GameBoy Advance. The 3D modelsDon't let the updated graphics and dual-screen presentation fool you. This game was (and is) better on the GameBoy Advance. The 3D models look terrible, the terrible AI has broken the game by allowing players to cheat their way to victory, and none of the "additional features" feel like improvements. Here's my advice: 1) Look up the review for the GBA version to read how the real game fared, 2) seek out a $10 GBA copy on eBay complete with box and manual versus the overpriced $20-$45 you could end up paying for the DS version, 3) experience one of the greatest dungeon crawlers of the past decade in its fantastically retro 2D glory.

    To the point: This game bored me to death. Old gameplay, a non existent plot and awful artwork that would pass as mediocre in the 8 bit 90sTo the point: This game bored me to death. Old gameplay, a non existent plot and awful artwork that would pass as mediocre in the 8 bit 90s era. The worst part is that I wasn't expecting much so that they manage to not only lower but destroy any desire to play this game is truly a feat. Do not buy. Forget ever existed. The people behind this game should give a serious look to their product before trying to ship such a disgrace again. Full Review »

    A very fun RPG experience. The full 3D view looks very sharp and the stylus/d-pad controls effectively emulate a keyboard/mouse controlA very fun RPG experience. The full 3D view looks very sharp and the stylus/d-pad controls effectively emulate a keyboard/mouse control scheme. Game play is old school, western style dungeon crawling with plenty of detail including lots of dungeons, a big overworld with many towns, NPCs to interact with, recruitable NPCs, 3 schools of magic, a variety of weapons, armor and items to find and use, and some wonderful Andean music in the soundtrack. But most of all, it is a lot of fun. The story is engaging with surprising plot twists, and exploring the many dungeons with their puzzles is a delight for those of us who cut our teeth on pen and paper Dungeons & Dragons. Full Review »
