    Not a bad game per se, but Elminage Original sometimes stays a little bit too true to the rules of its genre. Confuse handling and a non-existent story sometimes diminish the fun of the gameplay.

    Elminage is not a bad game, but it feels woefully out of place in today’s market. That said, it does have a very specific target audience, and those particular gamers will lap it up. Slow-paced, dated, and under-explained in every department, the less-than-stellar localisation only compounds all of Elminage Original’s issues and ensures that only die-hard genre fans will truly enjoy it.

    Elminage Original is a wholly unoriginal game in almost every aspect. It's perfectly competent in its gameplay, yet less than capable and enthralling in so many other ways that are significant.

    Elminage Original's classic design certainly offers an alternative to more modern dungeon crawlers, but its inability to explain even the simplest of mechanics make it a difficult game to get into. If you've got fond memories of classic RPG titles, then this offers a reasonable way to revisit that nostalgia. It is, however, a title that can only truly be recommended to a very small niche.

    With companies like XSEED offering higher quality localizations at the exact same price point, there is absolutely no excuse for the abominable work done here by UFO.

    In the end, Elminage sticks far too closely to old-school mechanics that just no longer provide for a fun experience.

    Very old school game! I enjoyed it. It was challenging to level up and find objects. My only issue was there is absolutely no instructions! It would be better if there was a help file or something. Full Review »
