Rated 7 out of 10 by Spaphte A Conjunction
When I first picked up this game, I wondered if it was going to be like the itouch and iphone games, as it was made by gameloft. But then I started to play it and it felt more like the Dungeon Crawlers I used to play on PS3. The game has good visuals, as far as 3rd person goes, customizable classes to the point where I actually feel like, If I play a mage, I could be a healer and be known to be good at it(even though I only put one point into it) or I could be a flame hurling kick butt mage. The only thing I do not like about this game is that once you play online, if you join someone else’s story, you are stuck at their part of the story. You retain all of *your* personal quests but you gain theirs. I was a level 6 helping a group of 14s take down the Prince of Theives. Funny thing was I got the role of designated healer and we wiped probably 8 times but every time we came close. By the 4-6 time we wiped we switched healers to a higher level, and we still wiped. So when it *does* through you into a higher level group, the play is still sort- of the same.
Rated 2 out of 10 by zOMGREI As usual, Ubisoft sets out to ruin another launch
Just like with the 3DS, Ubisoft is here with a bunch of shovelware at launch for a quick and dirty cash in. This particular piece of software is a pretty egregious case of poor business ethics. Basically, this is the same game you can get on the PSN (~$15) and iOS App Store ($.99-3.99) on a Vita card for a 150%+ markup. All you get for the huge mark up that's different from the other versions is the case, the card and some really gimmicky rear touchpad controls. With that out of the way, the game itself is incredibly mediocre. It's your typical Gameloft homogenized trash. There's nothing that really stands out about it, it's just a poor clone of Untold Legends and other similar console Action RPGs. Very soulless and nothing in particular stands out about the setting, characters, story or gameplay. If you really need an RPG to play on your vita, do yourself a huge favor and buy Persona 3 Portable from the PSN store.
Rated 9 out of 10 by pctech23 Reminds me of Diablo
I've read threw the reviews of this game and I'm disappointed with all the negative reviews about this game. It's basically like the original diablo. The story is ok, but the main reason you play the game is hack and slash and it delivers on that note. For a release game its pretty addictive, not super flashy or brought some new element to game play its just your normal hack and slash. I played threw most of the story with a friend and I had a great time. I've logged roughly 16 to 18 hours on the game and the game is still fun enough to go back threw on the next difficulty or as a new character. I can say that a casual gamer or a hardcore gamer will enjoy playing threw it and having a friend go threw makes it more enjoyable but it's not a real requirement. I would suggest, and did, buying this game if you like playing diablo.
Rated 9 out of 10 by hakman Great top down medieval hack n slasher!!
I was surprised how good this game is after reading many not so favorable reviews about it. I think this is a great top down/ over head medieval hack n slasher ! Perfect control, interesting storyline, and beautiful graphics make this game very good. I was able to get mine used at Gamestop for 31 dollars. It's one of the earlier release games so maybe you can get one used too. There are many levels and they all have a uniqueness to them. There is lots of stuff to collect and hunt for so there is long lasting replay value here. Good solid game for what it is and recommended for those who like this style of gameplay. 8.8/10
Rated 10 out of 10 by Paragorn1 Great Game , Alone or Co-Op
To sum it up, it is a darker, more in depth and better version of Torchlight. The interface is less bulky, sharper and more in depth. The leveling tree is HUGE and you can customize your character so well. Playing alone is great, and if you have access to wifi or 3G you can join a public online game, or create your own! The game is absolutely fantastic, from rare gear to hard bosses. And if you are an RPGer who likes story, the story is there and there are even decent cinematics. It was my first game for the PSP and still by FAR my favorite. My PSN name is Paragorn1 so add me if you want to play!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Aternati Why all the low scores?
Looking online I see low scores for this game. I don't get it. I'm having a blast with this game. It's like a combination of Diablo and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. The leveling and gear system works great. I love the spells too. I bought the Vita and only got this game with it, and I haven't regretted my purchase for a single second. I've actually been telling all my friends to get a Vita and Dungeon Hunter Alliance so we can play multiplayer together.
If you're a fan of games like Marvel Ultimate Alliance or Diablo, give this one a try. And if you're not- at least check out the free demo.
Rated 8 out of 10 by SirMixAlot Honest Review
People have been dumping on this game since day one. I must say i believed their hype at first. However actually buying the game and playing it is a very different story. Sure the game is repackaged as its own title. But it is most deff worth it. If you enjoy games such as dungeon siege 3 or gauntlet esque style games you will fall in love with this. It is up there for me as one of the best loot drop games and plays very smoothly compared to some of the other games on the console. I will say this that i wish you were able to sprint to your location instead of a brisk jog.
Rated 8 out of 10 by TheUltimateSith generally good
this is a very good game, but can be sort of difficult at times. it is also annoying how you cant disable the back touch panel controls. but other than the small bugs this game is very good and a must have on the vita. multiplayer is very fun and eventually you will unlock pit of trials, which is a never ending sort of horde mode. Sadly, there are only 3 classes but they are all very good in their own ways, and the more classes you have on a multiplayer team, the better that team tends to be. all in all this is a great game and i definitely recommend it to anyone.
Rated 9 out of 10 by hakman Much better than anticipated!!
I just bought this game today USED at Gamestop for 31 dollars. I have to say that I was surprised on how well this game is executed graphically, with gameplay and audio. I just started playing this game and after about an hour and 1/2 of playing I did not want to turn off my Vita. Great storyline too. A real good overhead hack n slasher with an excellent medieval feel to it. Highly recommend and ignore the bad press. 8.9/10!! No regrets buying it here and even better pre owned ;)
Rated 9 out of 10 by TheDudeCNY If you liked Diablo (original), you'll like this
I keep reading a lot of negatives about this game and comparisons to an iOS game. But on the Vita, with the controls, this game is just plain entertaining.
I would have liked to choose more than one "who this game is perfect for". I think its great for hardcore and casual gamers alike. I can pick up the Vita, play for a bit, then move on to something else. Or I can sit down and play this game for hours.
It isn't a bad storyline either. This game is just enjoyable entertainment.
