Dungeons & Dragons Tactics (PSP)

 

Rarely is sorting through after-battle loot handled as poorly as it is in Dungeons & Dragons Tactics. While this PSP title from Kuju Entertainment is a mostly satisfying look at hardcore role playing, courtesy of slavish attention to D&D's version 3.5...

It's a crazy world we live in. For the past two years the only tactical role-playing game on the PSP was a disappointing Lord of the Rings RPG put out by Electronic Arts. Yet here we are two years later and all of a sudden we're swamped with nothing...

This is a dark, depressing and boring role-playing game with complicated rules and major design flaws. With games like Jeanne D'Arc and Final Fantasy Tactics on store shelves there's no reason to play Dungeons & Dragons Tactics.

Dungeons and Dragons Tactics for the PSP is one of the smartest things Wizards of the Coast has done with the D&D license since commissioning Neverwinter Nights on the PC … and yes, I mean the original. The sequel is pretty good too though. Adapting...

Great, solidly-balanced missions make the game a continual challenge ; Really captures the feel of tabletop D&D ; Engrossing, if a bit short

Storytelling sequences are all still-art and narration and a bunch of reading; kind of boring ; Some in-game items are priced so high you can almost never afford them

Dungeons & Dragons Tactics is the best thing to happen to the D&D license since Wizards of the Coast commissioned the first Neverwinter Nights PC game.

If you dare, come in and see what Kuju Entertainment has designed for your enjoyment (insert evil laugh here).

Tactically Sound

 

Dungeons & Dragons: Tactics blends pen-and-paper rules with strategy RPG gameplay to impressive effect.

This is a really solid SRPG that adheres to the D&D rules and mythos as much as possible without reducing the fun factor. I recommend it for anyone who likes SRPGs in general, and even more so if you're deaf.

Roll a fortitude saving throw.

Complex gameplay with lots of tactical choice

Boring visuals; Lackluster story; Horrendous AI

Dungeons and Dragons: Tactics Sony PSP Review

 

Extremely faithful reproduction of the Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 rule set; Unique aspects of exploration, light and shadow, bring interesting dynamics to the SRPG genre, multiplayer available

Story bereft of any character or charisma; Time consuming preperation resulting in unexciting, unrewarding action; Poor presentation throughout; Controls frustrate and confuse; Boring

To many, the idea of a full fledged DnD campaign on the go is an appealing one. It certainly was to me, being a long time vet of the game and short time professional Dungeon Master. But my own attraction to the game was never to the ruleset itself, but...

Bad game design mortally wounds what could have been a wonderful D&D RPG experience for the PSP.

At the end of the day D&D Tactics fails to serve its core audience and fans of tactical role-playing games having many more options that are just plain better. It's just a shame that the developers couldn't balance implementing authentic rules with...

The PSP receives another cookie cutter tactics game.

See more screens ... This plodding pace continues in the combat. The game world is set into a grid system for movement. Each turn affords the player two actions; moving, opening chests and retrieving items (yes, this requires both actions in the...

Dungeons and Dragons Tactics Review

 

D&D has been around for a long time. Starting as nothing more than some paperback rulebooks and a complicated set of rules, it has blossomed into a system upon which many other RPGs have been based on. There are video games, miniature games and even...

If you can get past the out-of-combat menu system and are willing to learn the D&D rules (or already know them), D&D Tactics comes highly recommended. While the graphics may not be the best, this game provides some really fun tactical battles – some of...
