Über dieses Spiel

Über das Spiel


Dungeons & Dragons®: Chronicles of Mystara™ bringt zwei Capcom-Arcade-Klassiker: Dungeons & Dragons®: Tower of Doom™ und Dungeons & Dragons®: Shadow over Mystara™ bilden ein unschlagbares Digital-Team!

Genau wie seinerzeit in den Spielhallen wählen bis zu vier Teilnehmer unter verschiedenen Helden, um mit Schwert, Bogen und Magie mythische Kreaturen aus dem Dungeons & Dragons’®-Universum zu bekämpfen.

Hauptmerkmale

  • Drop In/Out-Online-Koop mit GGPO: Das zuverlässige, von Spielern geschätzte GGPO-System sorgt für lag- und stressfreies Online-Spiel, in das vier Helden nach Belieben ein- und aussteigen können.
  • Klassisches Arcade-Spielprinzip mit frischen Ideen: Spieler dürfen entweder im Original- Arcade-Modus oder nach Hausregeln loslegen, die ein komplett neues Erlebnis ermöglichen.
    Ein paar Beispiele:
    • Unzerstörbar – Waffen oder Ausrüstungsgegenstände verfügen über unendliche Haltbarkeit – nie wieder bröselige Langschwerter!
    • Feindessturm – Dieser spezielle Zeitattacke-Modus macht die Uhr zum Feind – zum Start gibt es eine halbe Minute, jeder gemeuchelte Gegner bringt wertvolle Zusatzsekunden.
    • Der Goldregen – Feinde und Schatzkisten bergen weitaus mehr Reichtümer als zuvor.
  • Herausforderungen:
    Dieses brandneue, RPG-ähnliche System ergänzt das bestehende Spiel um Unmengen kleiner und großer Herausforderungen für Forschernaturen. Erfüllte Ziele sorgen für steigende Spielerränge und geben Münzen, mit denen sich Boni im Schatzraum freischalten lassen.
  • Der Schatzraum: Die Fundgrube für alle wahren Fans – hier gibt es jede Menge Artworks und weitere Extras freizuschalten.
  • Helden-Tracking: Eine spezielle Software verfolgt aufmerksam, mit welchen Figuren der Spieler und seine Freunde am liebsten losziehen. Auf Wunsch sorgt eine Automatik dafür, dass ein ausbalanciertes Helden-Quartett auf die Jagd geht – alternativ kann man sich auch vorschlagen lassen, welchen bislang wenig genutzten Charakter man mal ausprobieren sollte.
  • Ranglisten und Statistiken: Online-Ranglisten ermöglichen den direkten Vergleich mit Freunden, zusätzlich gibt es detaillierte Statistiken für jeden Level.

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Habs bei einem Kumpel gesehen und wollte es auch gleich haben! Das Spiel ist so trashig, dass es schon wieder gut ist!
Gerade im Multiplayer macht es schnell lust auf mehr. Und dieser wunderschöne Mangel an korrekter Grammatik macht das Spiel zu einem wahren Juwel in jeder Bibliothek.
Gerade in Sales ein Pflichtkauf!

I was a child of the arcade era. Sneak off and walk up to the mall to waste quarters on the arcade cabinets, all that jazz...

And this just brought back tons of memories. All the quarters I dumped into this thing since I had no clue how D&D worked. That's the thing to remember going in.

A side-scrolling brawler incorporating D&D mechanics, one would be surprised at the amount of knowledge they should have going in. If someone doesn't have a party when they're a magic user, they might wonder why they can't cast their spells against the Beholder boss. Or in Tower of Doom, they might wonder why certain monsters just won't stay down until they're burned or beaten to jelly.

Even not having this knowledge however, these games are still fun. Replayability is definitely a factor, with dozens of items to collect as you go along. A radial item wheel is available to access the items or spells you collect, and even to switch equipment for classes that can do so, and while some people may claim the keyboard controls are clunky it's a minor hiccup in all honestly. Even going from WASD movement to arrow movement for this isn't the end of the world. The game isn't as pretty as one would expect from a packaged port like this. I personally haven't tinkered with options, but there are some glaring issues here and there with things that just pop out, at the least in Shadow of Mystara. The audio is just as I remember, excellent music for around the year these games came out and a reminder that before Squenix took over, Capcom was the go-to music company.

Considering you're picking up two games for the price of one, the TL;DR of this is yes. Chronicles of Mystara is worth it. Graphically, you get what the age and port would expect. Audibly, the game is ear-candy. Playability-wise, exceptional. It's not perfection, but it's damn close to it for the price.

Hack n slash, classic Capcom beat-em-up style. Fairly faithful to the D&D world lore as well. Fantastic stuff.

A surprisingly good Beat-Em-Up RPG-like game where you gain levels & upgrades as you fight your way through the game with added features that make it unique compared to it's arcade original.

PROS
-Up to 4 player Online/Offline Co-Op
-Easy Multiplayer where people can jump in/out of games easily
-Several different Characters to play
-Fun Classic Arcade Beat-em'up Style
-2 Games in One

CONS
-Repetitive Game Play
-Lack of D-Input Support (Joy2Key Needed)

FEATURES

The game has two games to choose from. TOWER OF DOOM & SHADOW OF MYSTARA. Shadow of Mystara is the game's main campaign with more game play elements & characters to play as while Tower of Doom is the 2nd campaign which is basically an older version of the 1st campaign with slightly less features.

Both campaigns are very similar with the exception of graphical differences. In SoM each character has special abilities unique to them which gives them a unique play style. The Rogue can Double Jump & Throw Rocks with her sling, the Warrior can Block attacks with his shield & so on. ToD doesn't have these features for each character.

You can also swap your special ability for an item that you have in your inventory & is easily switched by simply pressing a button then rotating to the item you want. It can be cumbersome to do so in the middle of a fight since you can't move/attack while doing it. The same cycle mechanic is used in both campaigns for items.

At the end of each level you fight a boss & after the boss you enter a shop menu which lets you buy health potions to heal & weapons that your character can wield. There are also branching paths in each campaign near the end of each chapter. If you are playing a co-op match you choose by majority vote. If the vote is 50/50 I think it's random.

You also gain level ups after each mission. These feel pretty much tacked on but they do serve a purpose. The Fighter gets a stronger sword, the Mage gets more spells, & every class gets more HP every level. If you die you can swap characters mid play through but they start out at the lowest level so it's better to stick with the same character as you play.

The Final Boss in SoM is probably one of the most hilarious things I've seen in an arcade game. It's not how she looks but how she fights. She's just a super killing machine meant to eat quarters & even has a giant instant kill AOE attack that you can't dodge & takes up the entire screen. Luckily, you have infinite continues so you don't have to worry about that nonsense.

The game also has "House Rules" which let you customize each play through with different game play elements. These can make the game easier or much harder depending on what you choose. This adds much more replay value as there are a lot of different settings to choose from. You do need to unlock most of these by completing achievements, though. There's a convenient achievement tracker while you play the game as well.

OVERALL

Overall the game is fun, enjoyable, has a lot of content added compared to the originals & is very well done for an arcade port. The online co-op is simple & easy to use. You make a room, & can either wait for people to join or start playing & have them join mid game or join another game in progress. The Single-Player is also enjoyable but the real fun is in the co-op.

I recommend buying it if you like Classic Arcade Games or just want a good gaming experience.
