Review: Sorcery Saga: Curse of The Great Curry God
by Karen Mead

I've mentioned this several times before on Japanator, but just for the record, I love dungeon crawlers. Next to a good old-fashioned story-based RPG, the random dungeon genre in particular is my favorite kind of video game. I've played everything from Azure Dreams way back on the PS1 (still one of the best) to The Nightmare of Druaga on the PS2 (one of the worst).

So when I heard about Sorcery Saga: Curse of The Great Curry God, a game that seeks to combine the joys of random dungeon exploration with a cute story about saving a local curry spot from an evil chain restaurant, I was psyched; it's probably worth mentioning that I'm also fond of curry, so this was like a match made in Karen-heaven. Was the game everything I was hoping for, with a side of pickled onions? Not quite, but let's be clear: it's still a lot of fun.

Dungeon crawl for delicious curry in Sorcery Saga

Over the last couple of years, a lot of my gaming time has been dedicated to dungeon crawlers, particularly on portable systems. Something about lying back on the couch and ransacking a dungeon for treasure simultaneously rel...
