Great replay value.
Furious four-player fun.
Instead of basic "balanced" or "speed" classes.
Two sought after arcade games.
Classic gameplay holds up better than that of their contemporaries
Infinite seems to be a little cheesy.
Mediocre sound effects.
Dying can get tedious.
Unlimited continues sully the joy of victory.
Too few enemy types.
The HD filters actually detract from the visuals.

I was an arcade junkie and Dungeons And Dragons (D&D) pen-and-paper gamer in my younger days.So, I took naturally to the Tower Of Doom and Shadows Over Mystara like fish to water when both D&D-themed hack-and-slash games appeared at the local...80

The result was and remains a refreshing hybrid that functions as a solo experience and positively shines when questing together. It's a ball-breaker in terms of difficulty - something that's unavoidably muffled by the limitless credits you can now chew through without a second thought - but if this means more gamers can now experience...80

Chronicles of Mystara is a must-have for any fan of the original arcade releases, or D&D fans in general. However, the charm of this package is going to be lost on anyone who wasn't already sold on these games in the...74

Chronicles of Mystara’s long-awaited English-language home debut has been handled with great care, bringing us an experience that’s virtually identical to the arcades and successfully tugging at nostalgic heartstrings. It’s great to see these two former arcade-exclusive mainstays finally get the restoration they deserve.83

Meditations-Gehirnverrenker-Spiel, das euren Verstand martert, aber nie zur Verzweiflung bringt. Gebt ihm vor allem auf dem PC, aber auch auf den Konsolen eine Chance, euch erst zu verzaubern und dann zu ärgern. Manchmal gehört das dazu. Nicht hier, aber was will man machen. Wetter und Jahreszeiten kommen und gehen halt wie sie wollen.70

However, for anyone who has waited the better part of two decades to play these games, their arrival on modern platforms is nothing short of awesome. Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is a great port of two delightful games, and unsurprisingly, they're the very best versions that you can get your hands on.75

With multiple paths and plenty of unique characters to play, there's definitely a lot of reason to play these Dungeons & Dragons games multiple times. Chronicles of Mystara is everything the Golden Axe trilogy wished it could be.88

Chronicles of Mystara suffers from the usual shortcomings you'd expect from a beat-em-up sidescroller. At the same time, these games make bold strides in an attempt to evolve the format. They also do as good a job of integrating D&D concepts into a pure action game as you could possibly hope.70

If you are a fan of 90s side-scrolling action, or D&D fantasy, Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is well worth a look.60

Oh, and most of the game’s voicework sounds like someone locked in a distant closet shouting gibberish, but personally I thought that was a hilarious value add. Ultimately Chronicles of Mystara is a no-brainer recommendation for brawler fans, and I’d say even the doubtful should definitely give the demo a try.90
