3D Dot Game Heroes has raised a lot of questions and speculation from the gaming community. Can something this close to classic action RPG's like Zelda and its ilk really stand up in its own right amongst today's modern gaming fare, or is it just a rip off with no place in the modern world? Read on to find out more:

- The game instantly instils that childhood, Sunday afternoon, gaming feel. It's pretty much the complete crystallisation of youthful videogame pursuits. Not many things give you that `butterflies in your stomach' retro feeling (although many things purport to) but this is instant cheesy grin material.
- The music follows suit with purely digital bleeps and beeps that'll send you reeling back to those heady days of retro video gaming. However not only are these analogue sounding ditties functional in bringing back those old flavours they're tightly written and often catchy as the flu.
- Although the graphics are minimalistic in their approach there are some really neat effects and everything runs so smoothly that looking at it on a big high-def screen is akin to revelation. The often Lego block looking environments and denizens of Dotnia are anything but boring and are literally stuffed with character proving that the likes of the unreal engine, although impressive, are less than necessary to provide an atmospheric and beautiful experience, and it's there in that answer to why these classic games stick in our mind so much lies: What the game leaves out the imagination makes up for if the mechanics are in place.
- The character builder is easy to use and an absolutely perfect tool for bringing your personality into the game world.

3D Dot Heroes is an old-school adventure for the PS3 that owes much to the games of old such as Zelda (NES) and Golden Axe Warrior (Master system). It plays just like the classics with a young hero setting out on a quest to find six magical orbs that are used to seal away an evil demon, the story is pretty cliché by today's standards, but it helps give it that overall retro feeling.

Graphically this is one of the nicest looking games out there, everything in the game world, from people and monsters down to the trees and items are made up of little cubes. When you destroy and object or monster it breaks into the individual cubes and they scatter around the screen bouncing off of walls and other objects. The water effects are also great, glistening in the sunlight and rippling in the wind while still keeping to the graphical style. The dungeons look especially nice with their reflective floors and moody gold lighting scheme. The only issue that some may have is that the depth of field effects can be a little hard to cope with at first, I found that playing for about 50 minutes then taking a break for 5-10 minutes relives any eye strain.

Control-wise they are absolutely perfect. The game is extremely responsive and it's very easy to simply pick up and play without have to read through hours of tutorials (like some recent big name RPGs that I won't be talking about here =P). The game map can be quickly accessed with the push of a single button which displays instantly without any loading time, making navigation through some of the larger dungeons that much easier. Sub-items are used with the circle button, and can be quickly scrolled through using the L2 and R2 buttons.

3D Dot Game Heroes is great twist on the zelda's of old. It takes the old 8 bit zelda formula and mixes it up with it's blocky 3D graphics and some miner gameplay twists. This game will take you between 20 and 40 hours depending on whether you rush through or take your time to do al the sidequests. All in all I would say it's a great game for people who liked the original zelda. It's funny and the gameplay is well balanced even though the screenshots of the giant swords would make you think otherwise. In the end it's all a matter of taste. I think if you like the idea you will like the game and it will be money well spent.

Remember the good ol days of 8-Bit gaming? Times when you'd embark on a quest to save a Kingdom? Remember square roomed dungeons filled to the brim with blocks, locked doors and monsters? Remember? The Legend Of Zelda for the Nes? Any true gamer remembers those times well. (or at least played them on the GBA/Wii when they were re-released.)

This game pure and simply is a homage to that era. A nostalgia-laden pixel quest across vast landscapes and mysterious dungeons to save Dotnia from a legendary evil.

3D Dot Game Heroes puts you in the place of your very own 3D Dot Hero, you can create your own heroes from scratch, should you ever wish to play as a Dalek in a fantasy world? You can do it. How about Bart Simpson? Or Tony Tony Chopper? An easy to use system that allows your imagination to run wild with your characters before you start your quest. Or maybe you just wish to be a generic soldier/prince? There are a nice amount of basic warriors for you too.

The game itself plays exactly like the classic Zelda titles. You go from screen to screen hacking and slashing at the 3D Dot Enemies with your sword. Sounds simple enough? It really is. However you can upgrade your sword by adding length and width to it until it fills the entire screen! Which makes killing those enemies even easier. However should you get hit by an enemy it will revert to the initial size.

Also in the game are the usual Zelda items, You WILL Bomb Walls, you WILL Hookshot across gaps, even the Boomerang and Bow are present. Although the main action of the game does come down to the sword and shield. Of course there are dozens of Swords in the game, each with its own unique length and width as well as some with special additions.
