A fun, grind-heavy dungeon crawler that shows off some wonderful anime designs. It is an easy pickup for most RPG fans, but especially for those looking for an old-school Wizardry experience.
- The anime-inspired character designs
- Artifacts that class-bend the characters
- Great combat music
- The generic background environments
- Starts off slow
- The poor field music
(continued from previous page) ...combat is some catchy, immersive anime tunes that work seamlessly with the art style. Part of me wishes combat didn’t end so quickly cause I only get to hear the first five seconds before the ‘you win’ theme takes over. Outside of combat is a mixture of nothing for some battle environments, literally just wind, or something better apt for the safety and happiness of a town not in the grips of a demon world. It is a sad shame, but the boss battles more than make up for it.
Since Demon Gaze is a first-person dungeon crawler the graphical output needed is little to none. While the backdrops and settings are fine, and mesh well with the spectacular character designs, it would have been nice to see that anime style as the setting as well. It is just the same stock, static images being navigated so it would not have been a huge leap to accomplish, and set it apart from the rest of the pack.
This is an old-school dungeon crawler laced with anime overtones. If that sounds appealing to you then this game will be enjoyable. If Wizardry-esque dungeoneering or anime is not your thing then it’ll be a tough sell, but not out of the question. Being a PlayStation Vita-exclusive, it is a perfect part of any RPG fans collection.
