Metal Dungeon

Overall: If you liked the combat system of FFVII, then you will love this game. I consider this game a very well thought out "niche-game" for those of you willing to take a chance on endless battle upon battle Final Fantasy style. The weapon upgrades available are enormous, and character cutomization as well is pretty exhaustive. Essentially it all comes down to this: You create up to 5 characters and then go "dungeon crawling" though very futuristic maps and battle a series of harder and harder enemies as you decend farther down the levels. All this time, your characters pick up exp points you can use to upgrade their stats, and pick up loot in random lockers or dropped by bosses to sell or use. When the battles begin, EVERYTHING is in FFVII style, from the music to the camera angles, though you will be amazed at the zoom in ones that really show off the enemy details like when you battle zombie-cyborgs, your team members take turns dishing it out as you control their attack-defend-heal/use item commands all to a very good effect. In conclusion, I was skeptical at first when I found this game ($49) yet was intrigued because not everyone likes the same style of game, but I am VERY impressed with the game as a whole in it's ability o deliver a satisfying gaming experience. Like I stated earlier, this is a game not intended for everyone, if you are expecting Diablo or even Baldurs Gate style gameplay, this is not for you, but if you liked the combat system utilized in Final Fantasy VII, then you will LOVE this game.

Gameplay: The random map generator does an excellent job of never letting you roam around the same map twice..Ever. This is excellent as far as re-playability is concerned. The character customization is indeed very well though out and the game engine never gets out of hand as far as pitting too tough enemies against you.

Graphics: The character animation of some of the enemies has really got to be seen to be believed. And the visual effects of the spells are spectacular. I like the way your character(s) change weapons/armor with new stuff you outfit them with. The maps are very futuristic and the enemy designs are quite good, kinda like the monsters from Etherlords meets The Borg. Very nice indeed.

Audio: Nothing new here, the music harkens back exactly to FFVII during the fight sequences and the weapon sounds are unique to each but again nothing to write home about.

Suggestions: A newbie guide that walks you through an easy battle would be a good help as far as getting to know the controls. Something akin to the entrance guide in Earth & Beyond would be a great addition to Metal Dungeon II!!
