|Story? In a old school First Person Dungeon Crawler? What a silly idea.|
Etrian Odyssey Untold is the first game in the series to make it's story a main focus of the game (as well as have a group of set characters rather than ones you create yourself), and for the most part the story is good. It is every bit as cliche as you imagine, each plot twist is telegraphed well in advance, and there is no major surprises at any point in the story. However, Etrian Odyssey's story is greatly reinforced by the main cast of characters, who are each unique and likeable.From the ever serious minded Simon to the hard drinking Raquna to the energetic Arthur (who is also the man with the fire magic), everyone is likeable even if none of them are too complex. In the end, the story is just as simple adventure story that is told well, which works well with the overall charm of the game.

Did I have fun with Etrian Odyssey Untold, YES! The game is an amazing little piece of addiction. Exploring massive dungeons is addicting. Drawing maps is addicting. Killing stronger and stronger enemies is addicting. Acquiring better and better weapons and armor is addicting. Watching your characters grow by leveling up skills that just form unstoppable combos is addicting. Pretty much everything about this game is addicting. If you are a fan of RPGs, especially dungeon crawlers, then definitely check out Etrian Odyssey Untold, and if you are new to the series this is almost the perfect place to start. Highly Recommended.
Until Next Time.
