  • Conclusion: Casting advanced spells in battle requires a bizarrely intricate mouse pointer dance, and your so-called "mage" doesn't remember any of them at the start.
  • Pros: Solving an obscure puzzle in an imaginative way and being rewarded with sweet, sweet loot.
  • Cons: The final section is more irritating than challenging.

23 May 2012
  • Conclusion: In a way, The Legend of Grimrock is a lot like Dark Souls . The game rewards calculated, meticulous play and any severe injuries or deaths are likely a result of not taking in your surroundings.

Legend of Grimrock

Strategy Informer
10 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Which is a shame, because you’ll probably want to delve deeper into this than just the first few levels, unless the thought of battling giant spiders scares you. If you can get over the relative tedium of the dungeons you’ll be trawling through, there’s a deep indie RPG adventure here.

  • Pros: Oppressive setting holds players captive, Excellent puzzles, Challenge that begs to be conquered
  • Cons: Enemy sound effects, Controls are rigid and require acclimation, Some seemingly impossible ambushes
