Summary: Very underrated at the time and stands up even today as one of the best ARPGs ever released on the PC. The setting and atmosphere is truly unique and the game offers a tremendous challenge, and particularly the end boss who will wipe out your samurai permanently if he kills them.
Summary: A fighting lion by today's standards. It's up there with Dungeon Siege, Neverwinter Nights and Diablo 2. The loot, characters, story and atmosphere were put together really well. Also, near the end you get to fight a boss that will PERMANENTLY delete your characters if they die against him in combat...
Summary: I just spend a lot of time with the demo version of this game and i am very impressed. at first i thought this was just a diablo clone set in feudal japan with a bunch of people following you around (not that that's bad), but this game is very ORIGINAL. the concept (story-wise) is at least.
Summary: I love Throne of Darkness. Everything from the multiple tactical plays to the Japanese mythology setting makes this game the best of its kind. The single player options have tons of quests and amazing creatures I've never seen before.
Complicated and somewhat slow, but rich in detail.

Summary: Overall, I like this game. The negatives are: -The game is very slow to develop. -The sheer number of characters, spells, special items and quests make for a somewhat mish-mashed sense of gameplay. -The combat is more muddled than other third-person fighting games (Diablo II, for instance).
Summary: this game is one of the best i have EVER played, its sad that it gets such little publicity. the fact that you could customize nearly everything to your own liking is great. and the spells in this game...wow!
Summary: If you enjoyed Diablo and Diablo II, then you're bound to love Throne of Darkness, an action/RPG with a backdrop in Japanese mythos. In the single-player game you control a party of up to 4 characters of different classes and rotate up to 7 different characters in and out of the party as you...
Summary: I did not know what to expect when i first tried out Throne of Darkness. At first I was impressed by the animations and the the good interface of the game. When I started to play i noticed the graphics where bright and colorful but as i kept playing they did get a little repetitive.
Summary: Okay, not only did they get me by the japanese setting alone, but once I got my Beta test CD in the mail and installed this game i was instantly blown away by the beautiful artwork that was put into this game... I still can't get over how pretty it is...
