Games Reviews: 3D Dot Game Heroes


Format PS3

Publisher Southpeak

This quirky Japanese RPG looks like it was inspired by Lego and plays like Legend of Zelda. With that irresistible mix of flavours, it’s hard not to warm to this 8-bit homage. It’s no surprise to learn that players have to rid a mythical kingdom of a dark lord using swords and sorcery while crawling through – you guessed it – plenty of dungeons. So yes, while it’s cute, it revels in its derivativeness – and does make you wish for some old-school Nintendo after a while.
