Krater

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Considering its been nearly 12 years since the last Diablo and three years since Torchlight , Krater is here to fill that action-RPG niche that has long been ignored by PC developers. Wait, what’s that you say? Diablo III is already out and Torchlight II is on its way?

Krater Review (PC)

Softpedia
4 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Krater could be a great game, but the lack of resources makes its initial version hard to love. Combat is a mixed experience and there are still quite lot of things that need to be polished, like the squad mechanics, and plenty of things that are missing, like a tactical pause.
  • Pros: +Lush environments, +Original concept
  • Cons: -Lots of backtracking, -Lackluster story, -No multiplayer at launch

Krater Review

True PC gaming
20 August 2012
  • Summary: What Krater does well, it does very well indeed. Towns and other locations feel fully realized with a vibrant aesthetic that doesn’t detract from the games post-apocalyptic feel. The graphics are gorgeous, and the humor can be good.

  • Conclusion: Krater offers an interesting take on post-apocalyptic games and utilizes strategic maneuvers while engaged in combat, but it felt a bit dragged out and of course, I went a little click happy.

  • Conclusion: Final Verdict: Krater is a beautiful and unique action RPG with great graphics and a terrific soundtrack, but the longer you play it, the more the cracks begin to show. The diligent developers are working to fix things, but right now there’s a ton of small yet serious issues adding up to create...

Post Apocalyptic Goes International

GIN
2 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I've become a bit of an aficionado of post-nuclear war RPGs without really knowing it. Starting out with Wasteland and the original Fallout and moving up through S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and New Vegas, if there was an apocalypse involved, I was there.

Krater

Strategy Informer
1 July 2012
  • Conclusion: So, it’s a mixed bag. Krater has a lot of promise but it ends up as a genuinely average game. That’s not a blemish on it, it’s the truth. It could have been a lot better, but at the same it had the risk of ending up a lot worse.

Cheat Happens
26 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Krater , the new action RPG from small Swedish development studio Fatshark AB is a Pyramid Scheme salesman in a box. When you first meet, it's going to charm your pants off with its good looks, big promises and bullet-points that make so much sense that there's no way you can lose.

26 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Despite the issues of the low level cap, the tiny font for loot details and the voice acting afterthought, Krater is a fun game to play. It is easy to get into even for novice role players.
