3D Dot Game Heroes


Jagged edges, blocky hair, insane difficulty and the sweet, sweet sounds of 8 bit music – this was my gaming childhood. 3D Dot Game Heroes manages to capture the magic and beauty of an entire genre's earliest generation while simultaneously managing to...

3D Dot Game Heroes


You're the king of a 2D medieval fantasy kingdom and tourism is waning. What do you do? Well, the king of Dotnia decides that the kingdom should become 3D. This happens in the intro to 3D Dot Game Heroes and it makes the game instantly endearing.

Let us not be fooled by the fact that this game is in a 3D perspective nor that it is on the PS3. The truth is you have played this game before possibly many times. 3D Dot Game Heroes is essentially a 3D perspective Legend of Zelda, but most reviews...

3D Dot Game Heroes


3D Dot Game Heroes brings classic and nostalgic action back from the past, in a rather enjoyable way.

This is a genuinely good game, it’s enjoyable to play (although sometimes it can be a little frustrating), it’s presented in an extremely well done manner, and it will certainly remind you of some of your favorite childhood games, should you be old...

Ah nostalgia. How you color our world, making things of the past seem amazing. And if there is one new game that seems to draw on that feeling, it would be 3D

Review: 3D Dot Game Heroes


, the average age of gamers is 35  and many of them grew up on gaming.  It makes sense that they would want to re-visit their childhood.

3D Dot Game Heroes Review


A Pixel Powered Love Letter to Zelda

Gorgeous, unique �old meets new� aesthetic, charming humor, this is the closest we�ll ever get to a new �old� Zelda game

Gets punishingly difficult in later dungeons, some opaque design

Here's a fair litmus test. If you�re on the fence about this game, and you have a Wii, spend $5 on the Virtual Console version of The Legend of Zelda. Spend an hour or two with it. Did you enjoy that? Now imagine it with gorgeous graphics and a lot...

Review: 3D Dot Game Heroes (Sony PS3)


Though I'm one of the biggest retro freaks on our staff, I am not a huge fan of this New Retro craze going on. What is “New Retro”? It's when a game makes a huge deal out of being retro, but does it in a way that makes a big show of slapping its own...

3D Dot Game Heroes


3D Dot Game Heroes makes no secret of blatantly ripping off the Legend of Zelda formula, milking nostalgia and tongue-in-cheek references about gaming to create an updated adventure game. Can this homage to an out-dated gaming era hold up now in the...

Graphics may not be for everyone, very repetitive music

3D Dot Game Heroes Review for the PS3


It's dangerous to go alone. Take this.

Filled with classic gaming in-jokes; Character creation is easy; Who doesn't like collecting swords

that normal, standard players won't get; Game can BREAK; Why play this when LoZ exists
