Can someone list me all available FP RPGs for DS? (the ones like orcs and elves...)
Orcs and Elves is a very old time dungeon crawler type of game.
There's Fighting Fantasy, which got some really bad reviews, but there's a few people here who liked it. It's a very niche genre.
I thought Etrian Odyssey was first person. I could be wrong.
the dark spire is a good one
Etrian Odyssey is first person. Its not like Orcs and Elves though
Deep Labyrinth and the ones mentioned by the other tempers. I don`t know if there are more...
Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey.
If you want something like Orcs and Elves, look up Doom RPG for mobile, it's from the same developer and maintains the same turn-based FP mechanics.
You may like Mazes of Fate. Note that it's different from the GBA one -- more genuinely 3D and first-person, less like Eye of the Beholder and such.
Also, I think The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is similar to Orcs and Elves. I never got a chance to play it, though.
I have orcs and elves 1&2, doom rpg and wolfenstein rpg on my SE K750 and it's awesome. I still remember Lands of lore on my old 486...
Thanks everybody !!
Yeah, i got Doom RPG for my cellphone, they really need to make that one for the DS! Awesome game, and beats the crap out of Orcs and Elves..
Dragon Quest IV
I personally really like Fighting Fantasy. It's reminiscent of Orcs and Elves, except it doesn't lock you onto a grid and it's a true real time action RPG. I don't get all the negative reviews at all... It's a really solid game. The only things I can think of to knock it are that the difficulty is really high and the hit detection could be better. I can understand the hit detection, but even that you can get used to within minutes. The difficulty is a welcome thing to most gamers, too many games treat you like a baby. Other than that, the graphics are really lovely, environments are detailed, and the framerate never drops. There's rarely any music (if any, i don't remember any music), but that actually adds to the atmosphere.
Solid game, i'd recommend it if you like a really hard first person RPG in the vein of the Elder Scrolls games. Just give it a fair try and give yourself a few minutes to adjust to the hit detection.
The bad reviews were mostly in part of it being a very niche genre. You either love it or hate it. And apparently, for a lot of reviewers, it's too out of their league. I didn't like it at all, but I could see that I didn't like it because it wasn't my thing, not because it was a bad game.
