The most noticeable feature of 3DGH is its distinctive cubic art style. All the objects, creatures and environments in the game are comprised of little blocks, representing the pixels that characterized older console games. Even better, when destroyed, they disintegrate into individual cubes - a very pleasant animation, that I never got tired of seeing. Wisely, the developers opted to depict the water bodies differently: their shimmering surfaces are of the finest sights in 3DGH. Overall, I found the look of the game quite charming indeed - and I suspect anyone who's ever played with LEGO will feel the same way.
Of course, one does not purchase this title in order to admire the visuals and take screenshots (though 3DGH does have a snapshot option). It is gameplay one seeks - and the developers delivered it in spades, and that too, from the very beginning, where one can not only select a wide variety of characters, but can even create and use one's own thanks to the title's splendid character editor. Characters are classed as heroes, royals or scholars - the class one chooses influences the game's dialogue (ex: if you're a scholar, a sage will mention your thesis on end-game grinding).Read more ›
You design your own 3D hero, or download one, or use a stock hero.
The class and gender and such affect your stats, but you can choose a new hero each time you load the game so you can always try out new characters.
Alot of people upload their heroes online, so you might just find your favorite hero to downlaod if you lack the artistic skills to make one yourself. I personally downloaded the Cloud Strife from ff7 and had him duke it out 3d dot hero style.
You roam a semi open world visiting temples and towns. Each time you die, you respawn at the castle, or in a temple or in a town you slept in. You can customize your sword (longer or wider), you have a boomerang and arrow and magic and even a fairy follows you around. truely a Zelda like game.
You're also able to smack a book at a monster to trap it in the pages for later viewing.
Puzzles are also part of this game, a major part.
There is even a princess to rescue!
This is a game I'd recommend for those who enjoyed Zelda back in the day. A nice cheap game to pass the time with.
What it does do is faithfully re-create/borrow/copy the gaming experience you had with games like The Legend of Zelda for NES and The Legend of Zelda, a Link to the Past for Super Nintendo.
This game pays homage to those titles, without seeming like a rip-off of them. The reason it doesn't seem like a cheap rip-off of the Zelda games is that it's been done so well.
Younger gamers probably won't take as much away from the gaming experience as anyone older who know and love games for their challenge, and don't require stunning graphics to keep their attention.
That's not to say that 3D DOT GAME HEROES isn't a good looking game. It has a very unique 3D block-y look that fits well with the type of game it is.
Definitely a must buy for old school Zelda fans.
The plot follows the tried and true dungeon-crawling, puzzle-solving, orb/gem/triforce-collecting paths that any Zelda fan would appreciate.
Not only can you create your own character from scratch (or tweak an array of available templates), but there are multiple swords you can collect, buy, and upgrade to ridiculous levels.
There are also many familiar minigames (tower defence, breakout, 'racing') that come included with the North American release of 3DDGH (this was DLC for the Japan release) to pass the time and earn money and items.
A New Game + mode is included for those who want to max out their experience.
The humour is great, as the creators were not afraid to make fun of themselves and there are many references to past and current games and pop-culture (just check out the ads for the game on Youtube).
Well Then You'll Love This Game.
- The Music Is Amazing And Will Bring You Back To The Good Old School Nes & Snes Era.
- One Feature That Is Awesome Is That You Can Customize You Main Character, So If You Want To Create The Good Old Nes Link,Mega man,Mario And Etc... You Can!
- The Presentation Is Great & All The Small References To Other Atlus Titles Are Fun.
- Expect A Good Challenge! Some Of The Levels Are Just As Hard As The Original Zelda.
- For The Trophy List We Got A Good List Of Really Challenging Trophies. Such Trophies As (Bestiary Completed,Flawless Hero And Defeating All Bosses Without Taking Damage.) Might Just Piss Off Tons Of Achievers But Then Again Very Doable.
I Fully Recommend This Title If Your A Fan Of Old School Games & Specially If Your A Zelda Fan!
10/10 Amazing Game
