  • Excerpt: Let's be blunt -- Darkstone is a visually weak game. The graphics are choppy, blocky and uninspiring. That is, until you get into a few of the dungeons. When the coloured lighting pops up, you'll start to rethink your opinion of the graphics. They're still not pretty, to be sure, but they certainly get the job done, and the choppiness is definitely bearable. Just don't expect Vagrant Story quality and you'll be fine.

Darkstone Comes Up a Bit Short

1 August 2001
  • Excerpt: Any person who has played a lot of fantasy, role-playing games has heard plenty of tired game storylines similar to this one; "The evil Draak has acquired an incredible power and has transformed himself into a dragon and now has plans to destroy the world.

  • Excerpt: Spec-Ops, the game that started the list of $9.99 budget priced games has a new game to relate to. DarkStone said to be the "crown jewel" of the budget list of games, is exactly... the opposite. Before I get to the review, let me refresh a few mind. Spec-Ops is undoubtly one of the worst videogames ever made, its sheer level of difficulty is what makes the game as bad as it is.

Darkstone is Diablo's Happier Twin

24 November 1999
  • Excerpt: So I wanted to play Darkstone again to reacquaint myself with the game after all the time I've spent on Ever Quest lately. Sure, spend maybe an hour or two romping through the dungeons, busting a few monster heads and generally remembering all the ins and outs. Problem: those couple of hours turned into a couple of days and I thought to myself, "Hey...didn't I have a review to write?" Aw, nuts...

  • Summary: "V titulu s názvem DarkStone bude vaším hlavním úkolem vyhrávat bitvy a shánìt potøebné vìci (jídlo, lékárnièky…). Je jedno, jak toho docílíte. K dispozici budete mít zbranì, magii, èarodìje, ale i své pomocníky. Ty si ovšem nezapomeòte vycvièit. Nakonec jedna rada, je lepší utéci, než se vrhnout do pøedem prohrané bitvy. ...

  • Conclusion: Darkstone ville sikkert være et udmærket spil i en verden uden Square og Final Fantasy . Men i denne verden er spillets eneste funktion at fremhæve hvor sublime RPG [*] 'er der kommer ud af Japan. Lad være med at spilde din tid på dette spil, det er nok at jeg har gjort det.
