Got a New game this weekend

Sorry, I kind of fell out of posting lately. I got a new game and have been dedicating all of my time towards it. The game is Etrian Odyssey III. It brings me back to the old CRPG games of the old days. I am having a lot of fun and getting rather frustrated at times playing this. The game is a dungeon crawler in grid fashion with a twist. The twist is that you have to draw the maps yourself. Yes the game does supply you with nifty tools to do it but the underling concept is still their. You have to make the maps or get lost forever. Here is a professional run down of the game:

Off tranquil ocean shores, far below the surface of the sea, the city of Armoroad bears a secret. Rumor suggests that this coastal metropolis is less than it once was; much of it, they whisper, was lost to the unforgiving waters. Will you assemble and train a team of explorers to uncover once and for all what really lies beneath, or will you succumb to the innumerable dangers hidden in the abyssal depths?

Etrian Odyssey III transports gamers to a sparkling oceanic paradise filled with atmospheric dungeons to chart and survey, vast watery expanses to sail across, and rumors of a sunken city to investigate.

Aspiring explorers are responsible for charting their travels utilizing the intuitive touchscreen map editor, meaning that careless cartography could easily spell doom for a fatigued party trying to escape danger. Powerful challenges demand cunning and strategy: players will assemble and fully customize their party of adventurers from a variety of highly specialized classes and sub-classes. For the patient and prepared, fame and fortune await.

I rate this game a perfect 10/10.
The graphics are good. The battle style is very easy flowing and requires a ton of strategy. The music is amazing, and the story though I am not finished or even close seems to be to my liking so far.
