I decided to get this game after hearing so much good stuff about the previous two games (which I may get some point soon) and I have to say, it's great! I can understand how some players wouldn't like this, it's difficult to play without strategy. Even when using an effecient strategy, it's still pretty hard. The dungeon exploring isn't like in most days now. You don't simply have to go through, fighting monsters along the way. You have to solve puzzles, like getting a FOE(super powered monsters that shouldn't be fought when you first run into them) into a cage so you can navigate the room freely. Another good puzzle would be getting through air currents which blow you in a different direction. Although, one of the best features would be the sea faring. Whenever I'm stuck in the game, I usually go out on the sea to make some money, get new equipment, do a few sea quests for exp, and I can get past it. Although, to admit it, I'm really far ahead dungeon vs. sea wise. In conclusion, Etrian Odyssey 3 is a really good game and I would reccomend it to everyone.
yes: I recommend this product
