Excerpt: I'm a big fan of dungeon crawlers. There's no telling how many hours I put into Diablo II and Torchlight. There's just something about killing a huge boss and getting some gauntlets with lightning powers.
Pros: + Good gameplay, + Tons of customization, + Good old-school dungeon crawling, + Dynamic interactions with towns
Cons: Dated visuals, Purchasing the use of skill points, Gameplay hindrances with the interface
Excerpt: At first glance Din’s Curse gives the impression of a leaner, more efficient take on Diablo or Torchlight . You know the genre by now: you’re the hero, there’s the dungeon, clear quests to get loot, kill the boss, rinse and repeat until game over. Much of that holds true here, but get past that outer layer and you’ll find the devil in the details, and a fiendishly clever one to boot.
Excerpt: Sometimes, “you can go home again”, and it was an absolute joy for me to come back to review the Demon War expansion to Din’s Curse for a number of reasons. When we first reviewed Din’s Curse back in June , we had an early opportunity to look at Soldak Entertainment’s Diablo-style dungeon delve and, as often is with early versions of games, some rough edges needed smoothed.
Excerpt: They say that imitation is the best form of flattery, and anyone who has played the original Diablo will instantly see the similarities in Din’s Curse. For the uninitiated, though, both games involve entering dungeons to partake of some third-person hack and slash. If you don’t like games where you grind your characters to higher levels then avoid Din’s Curse, but those who like your basic Dungeons and Dragons style low-plot high-body count roleplaying though will be in...
Conclusion: Din’s Curse is a traditional dungeon crawler with some new and cool ideas. It can be as easy or as hard as you want it to be. If you are a fan of dungeon crawling games this game is at least worth the download of the demo and try and if you’re a little bored of them Din’s Curse adds enough for a try also.
