Excerpt: While many modern RPGs have tried to spice up their dungeon-crawling with deep plots and customizable characters, Dungeon Hunter: Alliance is unapologetically hack-and-slash. Harkening back to Diablo and Gauntlet, the game is a fun, though flawed, button-masher where players must save their kingdom by killing swarms of enemies and collecting as much loot as possible. Dungeon Hunter: Alliance uses the same story as the iPhone game Dungeon Hunter .
Excerpt: Dungeon Hunter Alliance is probably the PlayStation Vita’s most generic launch title. That’s not to say it’s particularly bad, although it’s certainly not great either. It’s just so middle-of-the-road that it becomes difficult to describe. It just is . Playing Dungeon Hunter Alliance just becomes a thing you do, barely even thinking about why you’re doing it or what emotion it’s provoking.
Pros: It’s unique at this time on the Vita., Loot and levelling is complex and comprehensive., Multiplayer works well.
Cons: It’s very generic and that makes it very forgettable., Limited character options to start., Combat is awkward and ultimately not very enjoyable.
Conclusion: The beauty of the Vita is the variety of games available from launch for the system; from full retail releases to smaller PSN value products, and it seems to me that Dungeon Hunter Alliance is pitched on the wrong end of the spectrum. Give it a few months and retailers will hopefully drop the price of this one to something closer to the PS3 version, or failing that, PSN will undoubtedly put the launch Vita games on sale in six months time when I’d be more than willing to...
Pros: Plenty of game there. Great progression system, and multiplayer.
Cons: The price is three times what it was on the PS3 for the same game. Not quite in depth enough for a full retail release.
