    Zanki Zero: Last Beginning

    A mysterious island, human cloning, rebirth and... dungeon crawling? What more could you possibly want?

    Not much more, it turns out. Spike Chunsoft's latest game, Zanki Zero: Last Beginning packs so much into one package, it's hard to keep up. But for the most part, it pays off. It's not perfect, but Zanki Zero goes to some lengths to provide players with an adventure they'll find hard to put down.

    Zanki Zero is, at its core, a dungeon crawler. Each level is about making your way through a labyrinthine multi-levelled dungeon, finding items and defeating enemies as you go. There'll be a few locked door puzzles to solve along the way, and at the end of the dungeon a boss will be waiting for you. Moving around a grid-based system like any traditional dungeon crawler makes gameplay of these sections easy to get to grips with. Using the d-pad to move, you can also strafe with the shoulder buttons and use the left analogue stick to interact with points of interest. So far, so straightforward.

    [...]

    Zanki Zero: Last Beginning packs a lot of different elements into one experience, which at times can leave it feeling a little disjointed. Some of those elements stand out more than others, with some feeling like afterthoughts, but the dungeon crawling gameplay is strong enough to stand on its own two feet. It's the game's zany but gripping narrative that's the real star of the show, though. If science fiction interwoven with tales of family, loss, relationships and survival sounds like your thing, then Zanki Zero is worth a look.

    Score: 7/10
