  1. It's a nicely done Diablo clone, which means that it takes all the good bits and adds quite a few twists to make an entertaining romp through some diverse dungeons.

    With its excellent customization features, a huge assortment of items to find, and a good story to keep things interesting, fans looking for some meaty story for their "PSO" action will find Record of Lodoss War a very refreshing gameplay experience.
  3. 80
    Well done, but with a few tweaks to the graphics and sounds, it could have been a very good game.
  4. Never quite unique enough to make me separate the words 'Diablo' and 'clone' from the back of my mind throughout most of the length of my adventure.
  5. In short form: If you like "Diablo," you'll like Lodoss. If not, steer clear. Just don't pick it up expecting the anime itself in game form.
  6. Everything looks rather dated, characters have terribly jointed bodies, the graphics seem washed out, and the animation is pretty stiff in spots.
  7. Too repetitive and unimaginative to hold your interest for long.

    It is a Diablo clone, but I started playing it about 9:00am, and had to force my self to put it down since I have few days left with my net. Fun, some areas I've been to are annoying laberynth, but I think it is an excellent game. Expand

    Just because its a diablo clone, doesn't mean its not worth playing. this is by far the best hack n slash in existence. deep, long, difficult, good looking, innovative and great. a must own!! Expand
