Story: A Sorceress is trying to revive a fiend that can destroy Mystara and our heroes must stop before the fiend is revived.
Good or Bad Story?: This beat-em up does focus on its story and its a good 1. Its predictable, but even so its good. G00D!
Graphics: This game came out in the arcades in the 90s and playing it in 2013 on the current consoles the game’s visuals hold up very well. You have option to change the graphics filter and screen size.
Audio: The music is well done and the voice acting is good although there isn’t much to it.
Good: D& D is a beat-em up rpg arcade game that feels like a fighting game that supports coop both online(drop-in/out) and offline with 4 people. The game includes 6 playable characters each with an alternate costume who you can name whatever you want and yes you can name them bad words. In combat you have close range attacks that can hit enemies standing in front of you, below the belt, use SF motions to use more attacks, and attack those that are lying on the floor. Each also has an inventory that gives them access to more attacks, but depends on the character and each character has a special attack that is powerful that requires health.
During fights enemies tend to drop items and you can pick them up to get points and other stuff. At the end of each level your character will level and gain something like an item or extra cash as well as take you to a shop to purchase items. Now another thing during levels you may get the option to select where to go next and the choices you make may take you to a shortcut of the level. Finally you can also select any level after you beat the game, you can also run away from fights, unlock stuff, and you will fight some tough bosses.
Overall: D & D is a really good beat-em up that offers 6 playable characters that give the game variety of play styles. It is 1 of the best beat-em ups available now and is best played with friends as this game is not easy when you fight a boss. A must have.
Likes: Graphics, game play, music, and story.
Wish list: Sequel.
Score: 5/5 AWESOME!
Recommended for fans of: Dragons, dungeons, Capcom, beat-em ups, fighters, coop, and rpgs.
