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? Err, well, this is going to be awkward.

Review: Krater

New Gamer Nation
16 July 2012
  • 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 a frustrating experience. At fifteen dollars it could be a budget alternative to bigger games like Diablo 3 , but even then there are better options out there.

  • Summary: From the ashes, a new society has risen. In the wake of a nuclear catastrophe that wiped out billions, the survivors who dwell in the land once known as Sweden have formed new settlements from the wreckage. Krater is more vibrant than the typically bleak take on postapocalyptic life, and there's a humorous sense of whimsy in the way it envisions Sweden after the catastrophe; for instance, you'll recognize the signs for a company called IDEA as the slightly modified signs...
  • Pros: Presents an unusually inviting postapocalyptic world
  • Cons: Characters start with just two abilities and never acquire more, Frustrating restrictions on leveling process, Rote combat, Lacks fast travel option

Krater PC Review

DarkZero
26 June 2012
  • Excerpt: With Diablo III over a month old and still hanging in people’s minds – which is evident by the millions of gamers still playing – you must have balls of steel, have something special or simply be mental to release an action-RPG dungeon crawler so close to Blizzard’s mammoth title. Fatshark has just done that with the PC exclusive Krater , a post-apocalyptic themed game that takes place in the country of Sweden, which just happens to be where the developers come from.

Krater Review

AusGamers
22 June 2012
  • Conclusion: If the gameplay itself were solid, robust, and strategic like the one seen in Dawn of War II then this design choice could be overlooked or even make sense in the grand scheme of things. Unfortunately the gameplay is riddled with weird and detrimental quirks, like your ranged characters standing right next to your melee characters (making them easy fodder for foes) with no way to change their formation, maps that get confusing when you change the rotation of your...

  • Summary: Игра — боль. Игра — унижение. Игра, которая может лишить рассудка, а взамен наполнит ваши сны разноцветными медведями.

  • Excerpt: Dans la vie, il n'y a pas que Diablo 3. Ainsi, bien que Krater sorte dans l'ombre du géant, il n'en demeure pas moins une alternative au hit de Blizzard. Proposant un univers post-apocalyptique dans la veine d'un Mad Max, le titre de Fatshark dispose de quelques atouts pour faire du gringue à l'amateur de hack'n slash. Mais si la bonne volonté est là, est-elle suffisante pour faire de ce jeu un indispensable sur PC ?

  • Summary: Krater er et spill med mange spennende elementer. Postapokalyptiske Sverige skiller seg umiddelbart ut fra mengden, og spillet har massevis av humor og friske innslag som fungerer svært godt i en sjanger hvor spillene har en tendens til å ta seg selv alt for seriøst. Den store friheten du får til å utvikle figurene dine i ulike retninger er også en klar bonus, og det samme er måten du kan manipulere spesialegenskapene deres avhengig av hva du har behov for.

Krater

Level 7
1 July 2012
  • Summary: Ikea, smörgåsbord och rödmålade stugor – allt utplånat efter den stora katastrofen. Kvar finns enkla slumstäder, upprättade för att ge skydd för radioaktivitet och de mutationer som skapats. I detta skadeskjutna Sverige utspelar sig Krater, den senaste titeln från den lilla svenska studion Fatshark. Sex knappar i en attackask Efter ett tag blir det dessvärre uppenbart att stridssystemet är lite väl begränsat.
  • Pros: Spännade att utforska världen, Extra rolig humor för oss svenskar, Mysiga miljöer, Stämningsfull musik
  • Cons: Riktigt korkat nivå-system, Repetitiva strider, Tveksam karaktärsdesign, Begränsade utrustningsmöjligheter, Usla uppdrag
