  • Summary: honestly, i haven't even played the game yet but i was pleasantly surprised to find that the game comes with a music cd. After researching this game on youtube one of the things that convinced me to make the purchase was the stellar music and i am super stoked about the included soundtrack.

A throwback to the Wizardry games

Alan Bailey, Amazon
24 September 2013
  • Summary: I first heard about this game when I was listening to a compilation of the best VGMs from entertainment history and got an earful of a track from The Dark Spire. I saw that it was like Wizardry, decided to check it out, and was not disappointed at all!

Difficulty on par with Wizardry or Might & Magic, it nearly gets it all right

D. Fillion "Del_Duio", Amazon

  • Summary: I picked up The Dark Spire when it was new a few years back, and played it for awhile and then for whatever reason stopped playing. Recently, I dug it out and started a new party up to try and play again.

Brutal and unforgiving - Awesome

Badger, Amazon
18 March 2013
  • Summary: Much like the first person RPGs of old. Dark Spire is a Wizardry-style dungeon crawler with a four person party system that includes a few new perks (like being able to change formation tactically). The game is largely text based, if you are a graphics focused gamer you will probably not enjoy this.

I can't get enough of it

CENU, Amazon
9 November 2012
  • Summary: This game is intense. Its difficulty, although relatively high and unforgiving, is perfectly appropriate. Its fundamental rules are easy to learn as you play, but if you don't want follow the rules, then prepare to get your head handed to you.

Not for everyone

Daniel J. Shatz "Fantasy lover", Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: I'd been looking for a game like this ever since the wizardry games went out of style. Modern rpgs that hold your hand through large elaborate and sometimes ridiculous and trite stories don't excite me. Im not going to lie, it's a niche game for a niche gamer like me, who loved dungeon crawling.

A Word of Warning...

ilovebridge, Amazon
28 May 2012
  • Summary: Everything you might have heard about the difficulty level of this game is true, it is a beast. Strangely enough, I was surprised to find this an actual flaw. There are many things in this game you will never figure out on your own.
