Critic Reviews for Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth
While Etrian Odyssey 5 may not be well-suited for genre novices or people who shy away from the combat side of RPGs, you'd be hard-pressed to find a stronger example of this particular slice of the genre. It offers enormous customization; fresh challenges both inside and out of combat; a setting rich with things to do besides simply fight; and best of all, that addictive mapping feature. Here's a game destined to appeal to the lizard brain of Type-A personalities, to people who love to line up details and see everything slowly take shape. With each line you draw on the in-game map, you bring a tiny bit more order to chaos and transform the unknown into the familiar. Etrian Odyssey 5 isn't simply the best game in its own franchise, it's easily the richest and most satisfying dungeon crawler to appear in the past decade.
Etrian Odyssey V is a remarkable return to the origins of the saga: a complete, finished, and extremely long-lasting game. Developers have blunted many of the gameplay elements, setting aside each side activity and minimizing narration. The reversal of the medal of this operation is in the mighty sense of having already seen it assaulting old-time fans.
