Review: 3D Dot Game Heroes

3D Dot Game Heroes

Remember back when Link was a sprite-based boy and people didn't argue about "kid Link" versus "mature Link?" I do, and it was a lot simpler 20 years ago. 3D Dot Game Heroes makes no pretenses about what it is: the retro-style Zelda game that Nintendo will never make. Patrick Klepek quested through Atlus' excellent localization of the PS3-exclusive RPG, and here's a sample of his thoughts:

"3D Dot Game Heroes rips off The Legend of Zelda, but it does so in the most complimentary way possible. 3D Dot Game Heroes is an attempt to develop a video game we all wish Nintendo would create but know in our hearts likely never will: a brand-new old school Zelda. If Nintendo won't do it, Japanese developer Silicon Studios must have thought to themselves: 'Okay, then. We will.'

The end product of high-definition nostalgia is one filled of mixed results, and it's had me circling back to the biggest question I've asked about 3D Dot Game Heroes: so, is it any good? That's a loaded question that requires a complicated answer. It’s a yes...and a no."
