    What all games are out there for the DS that are of the 3D hack-and-slash variety? I'm thinking along the lines of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles... which I have and beat a few times over. (Level 99 in multiplayer, Clavat.) The less usage of the touch screen, the better.

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Dungeon Explorer, there are no touchscreen controls at all, it's a great game and it's a pure hack'n'slash.

    Lmao I think he means to hack and slash by pressing buttons not pressing a command and watching your character hack and slash ;p

    Haha yeah, I want a fully manual hack-and-slash if that makes sense. Soma Bringer? Never seen it, although I've heard good things about it. I'll definitely check it out. And Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword is completely stylus-based, which I don't want. [​IMG]

    EDIT: I just looked at an IGN review for Dungeon Explorer... seems kinda... gruesome and... dark, for lack of a better phrase. I like it! [​IMG]

    How about 'Eragon'?
    Does have touch screen controls for spells and stuff.. but you can kinda get away without them if you dont want to. Mostly just level up the sword and smash away. Good fun.

    Soma Bringer, it gets a bit repetitive, but it's great.

    There's the Pirates of the Caribbean games.....those were "walk along and bash on dudes" types of games.

    That latest Lord of the Rings game is a hack'n'slash.

    FFCC: Echoes of time

    really good story with online multiplayer. and puzzles are more difficult to figure out alone, compared to FFCC:RoF

    Legend of Kage 2. It's not 3D, but it's good.

    I would play that one, but I can't read a single word of Japanese.

    Same with Phantasy Star 0. [​IMG]

    Soma Bringer is like an anime version of Diablo 2. It's that f***ing good.

    I'm like 5 minutes into Soma Bringer and it's pretty good so far. I don't dig the automatic attacking with one button press, though. I do two sword swings (I'm a dual-wielder) with one tap of the A button and I can't link attacks so far. I hope things get better in the combat system.
