About the Game

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara brings reworkings of two of Capcom’s classic arcade hits - Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara – together in one definitive digital package.

Just as in the arcades, up to four players will select their character class before doing battle against the mythical beasts from the Dungeons and Dragons’ universe with a mix of melee, range and magic attacks.

Key Features

  • GGPO Enhanced Online With Drop-in/Drop-out Co-Op Play: Community-trusted GGPO powers a smooth online experience that allows up to four players to drop in or out of games in progress at will.
  • Classic Arcade Gameplay with a New Twist: Players can enjoy the original arcade modes or mix up the gameplay with House Rules that can completely alter the experience.
    Some examples of House Rules:
    • Unbreakable - Equipable items have infinite durability. Never worry about breakage again!
    • Enemy Rush - Fight against time in this special Time Attack Mode. Start the game clock with 30 seconds and increase the clock with each enemy you kill!
    • Make it Rain – Get rich quick! Enemies and chests drop tons of gold!
  • Challenge System: A newly introduced RPG-like system that fits on top of the existing games and provides a myriad of challenges for players to complete. Players can level up and obtain Vault Coins to be used in the Vault.
  • The Vault: A treasure trove of unlockables and gameplay loot can be purchased with Vault Coins earned via the Challenge System.
  • Character Visualizer: This UI visualizer tracks which characters the players and their friends most often use. Players can utilize the tool to create a more balanced multiplayer dungeon crew, or to see which under-used characters they should try out next.
  • Leaderboards & Connected Arcade: Players can track how they stack up against their friends through leaderboards, as well as view a full breakdown of gameplay related stats.

I must say the value of this game certainly pays for itself. I used to play this game in the arcades when I was younger and this game still holds out today as far as quality gameplay goes. The only gripe I have about this game is that the special graphics filters really slow down the framerate of this game , I have to turn them off in order to play. I am not annoyed by this fact but since I obviously have over the minimum system requirements its strange.

What I find cool is the emulation options. They have different views when it comes to emulating the machines. You can choose a mode with graphics surrounding it or you can choose dual monitors like the arcade.

Glad Capcom took their time on this release. I hope to see more classic arcade games in the future. I'll pay for them because they are worth every penny.

It's a Capcom Beat 'Em Up from the 90's. It's really hard to go wrong with that formula.

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is a port from the classic arcade games of my youth to our current digital age. The gameplay is how I remember of the games though I wasn't one to have many quarters to blow back in the day.

If you have any love of old-school side scrolling brawlers with a touch of the D&D mythos, then this is a fantastic game for you.

Old-school Capcom beat 'em up? Yes pls.

This game is part of what Arcades were all about back in the day. It has a really fun combo system, with special moves of which the inputs are just like fighting games, and with clever play you can extend your combos with items and magic. It's pretty unforgiving in difficulty, that is if you didn't have infinite continues heauehaueaheuaeh.

Also, this game has online multiplayer, and I manage to catch a game in progress sometimes. It's even more fun with groups.

Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara was the best beat-'em-up ever made from 1996 to 2013, when Dragon's Crown came out. That's a pretty damn impressive run, all things told. This game packages SoM with the previous game in the series (which was still pretty great) and includes a bunch of features like excellent netcode, selectable difficulty, and what amount to cheat codes with the "house rules".

The only real problem I have with it is that there's no chat system in the game at all, so you pretty much either have to go without communicating with other players or talk over Skype or something.

As someone who has never played the old arcade games I can still recommend this one - it's challenging but fun and full of secrets that aren't shoved down your throat. I've yet to try online multiplayer so I can't comment there, but the single player and local co-op is fantastic.

It makes me wonder why fantasy brawlers aren't more common, I'd definately pay for a modern brawler like this.
