Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl Full Review
Posted by The Gaming Angel
Happy Autumn dear readers, and welcome back to my esteemed blog. With the fall season making it’s arrival, many hit titles are making their ways on to store shelves. Our next title for review is Etrian Odyssey: The Millennium Girl for the Nintendo 3DS. Etrian Odyssey is a massive dungeon crawling RPG series from Atlus. This is a complete remake of the original Etrian Odyssey that was on Nintendo DS. It is a niche title with a fairly large fan base. So the question on everyone’s mind is, does this latest entry in the series satisfy the hunger of gamers all over?
Graphics: Fans of Etrian Odyssey 4 will be more than happy with this graphical overhaul of the original title. Artwork is well done and the transition of the dungeons and monsters to 3D are beautifully executed. The anime style movie sequences also add a little more push to the graphical arsenal. Score 9/10
Sound: The musical score of Etrian Odyssey has always been one of it’s strongest features, and this musical score does not disappoint. The little voice over work that is provided does the game justice when needed. Score: 8.5/10
Gameplay: JRPG fans will jump for joy at Etrian Odyssey’s traditional turn-based gameplay. The game also takes a unique approach by offering a story mode, which even though very cliched, offers a different approach to the traditional dungeon exploring, level grinding, treasure hunting goodness that makes Etrian Odyssey such a joy to play. You can also choose to play the original, which sticks to the traditional mechanics that I mentioned above. Score: 9.5/10
Whether you were introduced to Etrian Odyssey late in the years and want to experience the original, or someone that wants to experience the remake, this is a good way to experience where it all began. Highest recommendation.
Final Score: 9/10
