    The game isn't terribly long, likely lasting most players a bit more than twenty hours if they take their time, but there is room for a second playthrough if players want to try a different evil philosophy.

    The game sounds great, looks great, plays well, feels old-school, and has a deep and interesting plot with characters we already know and love.

    Capybara Games has done a phenomenal job creating a very unique RPG/puzzle hybrid that will keep gamers happy.

    Half-Minute Hero is a terrific game, and PSP owners would be remiss to pass it up.

    Atelier Annie is a game that shouldn't be missed, especially if players are looking for a good laugh and some challenging tasks. Just be prepared to work hard, or else you might receive a beating from Pepe for slacking off!

    Despite a few places where the retro chic gets a bit too retro, 3D Dot Game Heroes is a terrific example of how to make old new again.

    Vandal Hearts is an affirmation that a small company without gobs of funds can take a game premise and turn it into a true treasure.

    Pokémon HeartGold is an addictive game. There's plenty to do and lots of secrets to uncover.

    Although DeathSpank is only roughly ten to fifteen hours long, it provides plenty of bang for your buck.

    Although Dragon Quest IX's main story can be completed in forty hours or so, doing so would be a disservice to the supplementary material. These additional layers are what transform the most recent iteration of one of RPG-dom's sacred cows from a repainted throwback into an old-timer who has traded speed for the silvered brows of style.

    The speedy combat is addictive and goes beyond mere button mashing, so while Ys Seven might not be a AAA release, it is a solid title that deserves a shot.

    Considering the game sets out to recreate a classic experience, it's hard to find any real faults in Etrian Odyssey III aside from the graphics and music.

    A couple of hang-ups prevent it from being a truly excellent experience, but regardless, it comes highly recommended.

    If you enjoyed DeathSpank's first adventure, the second one will be right up your alley.

    Regardless, Fallout: New Vegas is a great experience. Offering a huge world with many sights to see and things to do, players will have a lot to do in the Mojave where the only bugs that should be feared are the wicked flying Cazadores.

    Zettai Hero Project: Unlosing Ranger Vs. Darkdeath Evilman is a lot of fun. It can be a mindless dungeon delve or the highly focused bout of number juggling and grinding that fans have come to expect from Nippon Ichi Software.

    All things considered, Dark Dawn is still the game series fans have been waiting seven years for.

    Like its predecessors, Fable III manages to improve upon the last title while simultaneously falling short on the new elements it brings to the table.

    This sweet experience is one that can be enjoyed by newcomers and veterans of the Harvest Moon series, as Rune Factory 3's positives definitely outweigh the negatives.

    When even hunting for the solution to an idiot NPC's propensity to stay in an area that will soon be a battlefield is tantalizing enough to warrant going back in time, the game has clearly done a lot right.

    Yakuza 4 is a triumph; for those who desire to take the plunge with this series, this may be the best place to start.
    • 79 Metascore

    While it'll never be the most technically impressive or original game, its creators clearly understand what works and what doesn't. The excellent music and fun combat combine with the charming characters to create a game that has a certain intangible feel, a spirit that pervades it and makes it more than simply the collection of things seen before it may appear at first glance. As the PSP enters its twilight years, most RPGamers would find few better sendoffs than this.

    In the end, Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes HD is fantastic port of the original DS game. Featuring astounding 2D visuals, improved multiplayer, and a battle system that will provide an impressive amount of challenge to players, it is a tremendous downloadable value that will provide at the very least twenty hours of gameplay, if not many more. There are some hang-ups with the presentation, music, and story that prevent it from being a true classic. However this should not deter people from trying what is the best puzzle-RPG mash-up to date.

    Dungeon Siege III ends up being a fantastic hack and slack adventure that nearly achieves brilliance if not for lack of post-game content and expansive multiplayer.

    Those looking for an easy-to-pick-up and entertaining RPG experience would have to work very hard to find a better option.

    Devil Survivor was one of the DS's best games and Overclocked is a great title on the 3DS.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The story may take awhile to get truly interesting, but the early portion is not unappealing, and the rest of the game is quite worthwhile.

    Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 is great, not just for fans of catch-em-all games, but also for anyone enamored with the Dragon Quest series.

    Like any reimagining of a series, Skyward Sword doesn't get everything right in the first try. Despite everything it does well, there are still several kinks that need to be worked out. That said, it's still the most creative, bold, and arguably important Zelda title to be released in over ten years.

    Tales of the Abyss is a very worthwhile addition to gamers' collections, and more than welcome on the 3DS' library. The removal of the technical issues is much appreciated and gives players the opportunity to experience the game at much closer to its full potential, where it easily earns the right to be spoken out in the same breaths as the more beloved entries in the series. Tales of the Abyss 3D is a very solid game all round, and the handling of characters' growth throughout the story should stick in one's memory for a good while.
