Review: Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City

As painful as they may be to play at times, I really enjoyed the last two Etrian Odyssey games. They really scratch a certain itch that hearkens back to childhood days spent playing AD&D, rolling 20-sided die, and making custom maps of dungeon exploits using graph paper. The glut of new classes and fresh areas to explore in this third installmentĀ are among the big reasons to dive back in again, but I really found the seafaring portions to be a great addition. They change up the pace, and that’s a good thing.

The short-and-sweet version of my review is I highly recommend this dungeon crawling RPG to fans of the genre. Normal folks will want to rip their teeth out after playing through the first few dungeons, but it’s a good trip for those of us who are already well battle hardened.
