***IGN BEST OF 2016

***"The game brings Lovecraftian lore to new heights with cool classes, powerful narration, stylish art, and addictive gameplay that will keep you crawling back to battle slithering monstrosities even as your favorite heroes become corpses." -GAME INFORMER (9.25/10)

***"Darkest Dungeon is a mean, capricious game. Success is a gambler’s thrill, addictive and illicit. It comes rarely." -WIRED

***"It transfixes and binds you to this grand journey, dotted with failures and successes. And because you endured, because you thought your way through it, the final victory against the unimaginable evil you face at the bottom of the Darkest Dungeon is personally valuable." -GAMESPOT (9/10)

Grinder. Impossible.

You’ll spend most of the time trying to build up characters for the impossible last stage quest. I’ve done this a few times, and immediatly everyone dies from heart attacks. Yeah. Heart attacks. It’s just too scary.

What the game makes up for in art, concept, economy, and RPG D&D feel, is forever lost to a very imbalanced and lackluster engine. Now too play Doom 3.

Perfect, except ...

Finally! An intelligent tactical role-play with a beautiful visual style, amazing sound and captivating horror storyline!
You may read many a review calling it a "grind" which could make one think of leveling up characters on boring levels for hours on end. That couldn't be further from the truth. There are just a few experience levels and getting a character to the top doesn't take long. What's crucial is that every encounter, no matter at what level should be carefully planned. Depending on the region and the foes, you may have to assemble and stock the party accordingly. That also extends to the skills your characters possess both in fight and during camping.

Battles require you to carefully ponder each move. That's what makes the game awesome. It's no longer a multitude of options where your choices make little difference as long as your characters are at Lvl 99999. If you blindly rush into every encounter then indeed be prepared to die a lot. But careful planning can take you a long way.

None of the levels are boring, even the basic ones differ from each other and you may find major surprises on what you thought of was a well-trodden ground.
Finally, the story and its delivery are nothing short of amazing. If you are an H. P. Lovecraft fan, this is a must.

Why 3 / 5? The game takes full control of saving your progress almost in real time. When, on rare occasions, it crashes, the save may become unusable. There's a back-up version stored along, but it may get corrupt as well. In short, you can invest a LOT of hours into the game only to lose it all in a blink of an eye. That's a no small bug. You may try contacting the developers, but there's no guarantee they can help or even respond.

Gameplay is fun, the look and feel is great. But this game is a GRIND. Starts out fun, but stops being fun really fast. You end up repeating the same low-level quests over and over.
