Nexus relies too heavily on the past, but it's ultimately a satisfying conclusion to the 3DS franchise of dungeon crawlers

Etrian Odyssey Nexus combines some the best elements of the long-running series into a meaty, challenging adventure that sucks you in and doesn't let go.

Not rocking the boat is actually a great way to sum up Etrian Odyssey Nexus. Atlus didn't set out to create a new, series-defining game with this entry, but rather a recap of the everything that's come before it. Being able to replay my favorite classes from the past is a treat, but it's really that spirit of adventure percolating through the entire package that has me hooked. That excitement, that sense of wonder, is why I gravitated towards the series nearly a decade ago and it's why I'll be there day one when it finally makes the jump to Switch.

Etrian Odyssey Nexus is a bittersweet farewell to the series as we know it. It does not add much content to the classic formula, but gives to the players the biggest Etrian Odyssey adventure up to date.
