  • Excerpt: As the line that determines what qualifies as an RPG becomes more and more blurred, there is an interesting side effect that certainly many RPGamers have come across: a broader gaming palate.

Hunted: The Demon's Forge review

  • Conclusion: Stuck on your own, easily ignored. With a friend, a solid hack-and-slash, but nothing special, or half as funny as it thinks.

  • Conclusion: You stumble upon plenty of random equipment on your adventure, though looting isn't Hunted's best feature. You find equipment on the ground or smash weapon racks, but the loot that falls from a rack is only for the character who smashes it. Most of the time, what falls is useless, making you wonder whether the team might have earned something more valuable had the other player smashed it instead.
  • Pros: Varied mix of melee action and cover-based shooting, Cooperative action leads to fun moments, Good voice acting and soundtrack.
  • Cons: Tons of glitches and execution problems, Finishing moves interfere with gameplay, Grubby, unattractive color palette and art design, Online play is broken and doesn't allow for player communication.

  • Summary: A game's success or failure often rests on the little things. An otherwise ordinary game can soar to great heights by nailing the details; conversely, a smattering of small flaws might cause fine ideas to flounder. Hunted: The Demon's Forge is the latter type of game: conceptually sound, yet clumsy as delivered.
  • Pros: Varied mix of melee action and cover-based shooting, Cooperative action leads to fun moments, Good voice acting and soundtrack
  • Cons: Tons of glitches and execution problems, Finishing moves interfere with gameplay, Grubby, unattractive color palette and art design, Online play is broken and doesn't allow for player communication

  • Conclusion: Gameplay itself will encourage co-op play, as their are two main characters in the game doing away with the evils that face Kala Moor: Caddoc and E'lara. As mentioned earlier, the core of what Hunted is going for is revisiting the dungeon crawler, while fusing it various more modern elements.

PAX East: Hunted - The Demon's Forge Preview

  • Excerpt: It's a two-player game designed for co-op play -- of course AJ Glasser had to recruit somebody. Can a second player make all the difference?

Gamescom 2010: Hunted: The Demon's Forge preview

GamePro.com
20 August 2010
  • Excerpt: First revealed at the Game Developers Conference earlier this year, Hunted: The Demon's Forge has certainly come a long way since its debut. We were able to get some hands-on time with the game at this year's GamesCom, and played through a portion of a mission as the melee-centric warrior Caddoc.

Hunted: The Demon's Forge Review

AusGamers
9 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Although there are countless questionable design choices in the game, and way too many to list here, very few -- apart from a ridiculously difficult final boss battle -- ever venture into annoying or game-breaking territory. In most cases they add to the overall scrappy nature of the game itself, one that doesn’t really feature any set pieces that are well, you know... memorable, or any lengthy sort of replay value.

  • Conclusion: Hiába rendelkezik tehát nagy múlttal Brian Fargo, az inXile Entertainment-nek továbbra sem sikerült kilépnie a saját árnyékából. Hasonló csalódottságot érzek most a Hunted esetében, mint annak idején a Bard's Tale végigjátszását követően. Véleményem szerint Fargo akkor is a gyors pénzcsinálás érdekében dobta össze a programot, ami hagyott maga után kívánnivalót és ugyanezt érzem most a Hunted esetében is.
  • Pros: fantasy világjó harcrendszer
  • Cons: monoton és lineáris pályák csúnya küllem
