Description official description

In this game the player takes the role of an ancient warrior who has been brought to life by the benevolent wizard Wart. It seems that the evil goddess Kardis is about to be resurrected by her faithful servants. The only way to stop them is to gather famous heroes from Lodoss War universe and to defeat the evil ones in a battle.

Record of Lodoss War is quite similar to Diablo gameplay-wise. It is an action RPG which is heavily combat-oriented. You can directly control only the main hero, while the legendary heroes who join him on the quest are controlled by the AI. As you go through the game you level up, tweak your items with the great Ancients system, and gain new spells. It is also possible to forge weapons and to imbue them with runes. As your adventures into the surrounding land go on, you can return to your HQ, the Goblin Fortress, and get much needed healing and healing potions (free of charge).

colourful stat building arcade rpg.

The Good
colourful graphics depict a vast array of pick ups and creatures. atmospheric scene setting movies. good voice acting, incredibly for a release this small, and a sense of humour. strategic element to the arcade style battles.

The Bad
repetative 'hack and slash' action does become numbing. it takes too long for your movement to get speedy. saving takes too long. the blacksmith saying the same old nonsense to you every time you see him, which is pretty often.

The Bottom Line
ok if you're looking for something to zone out with. nice to look at, fairly but not completely linear, very D&D in it's stat tweaking and item hording. although you have an isometric viewpoint this is a true 3-D game.

Fans familiar with Record of the Lodoss War as an anime series and OAV will probably get a lot more out of it than those who don't. The game plays as a kind of side-quest or retelling of the Lodoss War (the series and the OAV are different tellings of it also from one another) that takes place centering around a certain character from the anime sources who many people thought was dead.
