Excerpt: It is truly a depressing state of affairs when a company can legitimately push a defective product into a market where the consumer has no recourse to return the mostly useless merchandise. If some store sells spoiled meat, cracked mirrors, or pencils without lead via misdirection or subterfuge, one can turn to the Better Business Bureau for help.
Conclusion: The new version of Dungeon Lords may not offer a fundamentally different experience than the original release.
However, if you missed the first version, the Collector's Edition migth be a great way to explore
an interesting fantasy land while engaging in intense combat. TheCollector's Edition should provide a more stable
game not to mention a good deal of extra content.
Excerpt: How on earth could Dungeon Lords not be a bad game? A huge action/adventure game done on the cheap by an independent studio? I wouldn't have to be an especially cynical person to start playing the game with very low expectations. Which made it all the more surprising when I discovered just what a good game Dungeon Lords actually is.
Conclusion: DL is one of the most intricate European-style board games I have ever played. While its roots are clearly Euro worker placement, the theme runs so deep that this feels more like an American-style game. The rules rarely get in the way, but there is a danger of forgetting something, particularly since there are slightly different rules between the first and second adventuring years in the game.While the game is expensive, it comes with numerous components so you aren't...
Excerpt: Dungeon Lords is touted as a “new breed of epic fantasy RPG”. Unfortunately, this is one “new breed” of game that should have never been born. Missing features, lack of detail, and weak gameplay make this game anything but enjoyable.
Excerpt: I’d like to play a little word association to start this review. Sid Meier: Civilization. Will Wright: SimCity. D.W. Bradley: ummm, clothing store, possibly? Let’s face it folks, in order to have your name associated with a game, you’ve got to have some really killer products on your resume, and be the driving force behind them. Sid and Will have got that in spades, but D.W. Bradley is a name I had to search for.
Excerpt: The genre itself...and whence it was spawned Computer Role-Playing Games (RPGs) have been around for a long time, but many think it was the release of the epic Baldur's Gate saga in 1998 that "resurrected" the genre. The game brought fresh life to a genre which had been stagnant far too long, and opened a new world of possibilities for role-playing games.
Excerpt: A forum member on Dungeon Lord's official website posted a subject Ã¢â‚¬Å“I have only one suggestion for the gameÃ¢â‚¬Â� that when clicked on gave the message Ã¢â‚¬Å“Finish it before shipping it.Ã¢â‚¬Â� So simple, yet so true. Dungeon Lords is probably the least finished game to ever be shipped for PC, excepting Battlecruiser 3000 AD, a title that will probably hold the honour for as long as PC gaming exists.
Excerpt: Dungeon Lords, an introduction. With the phenomenal success of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion it's going to be difficult to capture the interest of RPG gamers. One such game attempting to do so is Dungeon Lords. Where as Oblivion is a huge sprawling RPG with much more to the game than just combat, Dungeon Lords is pretty much the opposite and the main focus of the game is the action.
