Basicly Dungeon Keeper, thou...
It is basily dungeon keeper 2, but the devs don't like to read that. For the game's main differances go away from the dungeon keeper mentality. That is, in dugeon keeper you would have places to train you minions, feed etc. This game goes away from the pethatic tasks such as this and concentrates on building your dugeon to smash the incoming heroes. The real question here to make this game good or not is how much the devs throw in (objects) and how well that is executed. There is no MP on release, however promised if the game is sucessfull (ofcourse)... in the end, the price seems worth the try. The screens I have seen and information I have read says to me "unique game with possiblities" just like other indi games. So for the price I say it's worth buying, if your iffy, wait till release and see what others say. From what I know thou now, I will be getting it. Hoping for the best of course.
A poor game with poor support
The appeal of the game is ok and sounds fun to begin with, then you quickly find the requirements tedious. The control is mostly via keyboard which took some getting used to and no tutorial at all. I played through the 2 first stages of the campaign which were ok, then the third stage began and suddenly the game froze at the starting cinematic, I tried rebooting, uninstalling and reinstalling, nothing worked so I contacted support only to get a tiny bit of English and a bunch of German and no answers. Overall if the game was on clearance for 15 bucks I would say pick it up for fun but don't hope for a lot you get what you pay for. And be sure to click everything and look at the tiny interaction options like on the dungeon heart you have to upgrade your monster levels or you will be over ran.
Can I please have my life back
First if you are a fan of Dungeon Master do not buy this.... Your job is to place little art stuff and gold about so you can give the heroes a good time and then only then when they are happy you kill them... The monsters are just for the fun of the Heroes, not really meant to be a weapon but rather a party toy. I put this game in the trash 2hr's after installing it what "JUNK" Ough and game stop you lost cool points for selling this hack...
sense of happy familar thoughts
the game when i looked at the preview reminding me of dungeon keeper right of the bat gave me a pasting thought of "finally". ever sense DK3 was dropped trying to find a game just like it to no avail has been like bouncing my head off walls. when someone promised me a game like overlord being somewhat like it... then playing overlord to see the game-play is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT was depressing. however is this game exactly like dungeon keeper?... probably not but it looks interesting none the less... if it gives us a demo ill take a gander of it and if i am pleased ill buy it but I'm not going to counting the hours down to its release.
I'm an avid PC gamer and this is the WORST game I have played in years. This would appeal to 5 year old perhaps, but that's the full extent. DO NOT waste your money on this garbage.
