3D Dot Game Heroes is an adventure worth taking, especially for Zelda fans. But it's not one without faults, including strange difficulty spikes and opportunities to accidentally miss key game items. Despite these problems, it's is a lavishly pretty and entertaining virtual worship at the altar of Shigeru Miyamoto, resulting in a video game Nintendo themselves would likely make, so it's a good thing someone else did.
