Critic Reviews for Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure

Fun and simplistic action-RPG that is 10 years old, but it's still capable of offering a ton of hours of enjoyment.

At the end of the day, Gurumin 3D does what it needs to, and does it well. A charming throwback in form and function to classic PS1 RPGs, this re-release is a fun romp down memory lane.

The game is paced well, with mini-games, scenes and boss fights breaking up the basic dungeon progression in neat intervals. It keeps things feeling exciting and dynamic. At $14.99 the game is a fantastic value. Parin and her pals are easy to love and so too is the game itself. The main campaign should take you at least 9 hours and there are various secrets and things to collect for completionists. Fifteen bucks is very little to pay for a title that channels some of gaming’s best known IP in its strongest moments.

As far as action RPGs go, Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure is simple and with an accessible plot. It takes a while to become involving but it does have a pretty decent lifespan, even if it can't help becoming repetitive at some moments, as well as frustrating from its camera and imprecise controls. Nevertheless, it still has its value and should not be overlooked by RPG fans.

Gurumin 3D may be short on epic story and have a few technical blemishes around the edges of its gameplay, but its fun style and a surprising depth in collectibles and replayability make it well worthy of consideration for action-RPG fans. Did we mention there's a pretty sweet drill?
