    If you're looking for something much more different from a typical hack-and-slash RPG and want plenty of challenge, Din's Curse and its expansion, Demon War, will be sure to sate your appetite for a long, long time.

    You can get through a single town in one sitting, making it one of those perfect games to play when you've got a half hour or so handy. Many times, that "half hour" turns into far longer, which is really the best compliment I can give a game.

    Just like Din's Curse, Demon War is fun, but I still recommend it in small doses. The action tends to get repetitive after 4-5 towns and, if you're no collector of sets and rare items, you won't find many interesting rewards in the idea of endlessly killing brainless monsters; not to mention that the dynamic side of the world can frustrate less patient players. So if you don't get along with the idea that in a game you get random, uncontrollable events that are out of your influence (just like in real life), then Demon War won't keep you interested for too long.

    Demon War isn't the greatest expansion I've seen to a game like this, but it's certainly something. It capitalizes on the strengths of Din's Curse and its unique properties, building upon them and adding more properties of that kind to the game, instead of just adding more enemies or something (though there are more of those). Like the original game, if you want something different in your dungeon delving, something else that just isn't on the market, Din's Curse, and now its expansion, will be perfect for you.

    With 190 different ways to combine your character, many monsters and a dynamic world map "in's Curse: Demon War is very diversified. But the Graphics and the Quest-system isn't fully and nice developed.

    This game is in the Torchlight / Diablo / Titan Quest mold but with a touch of HInterland / Dwarf Fortress. It has you definding your town whilst trying to defeat the evil denzines of the local dungeon.

    Good: More depth than Torchlight / Diablo (completing quests actually means something), lots of classes and skills to try, great gameplay, you can choose your own difficulty.

    Bad: Poor graphics (its indie so what do you expect I guess!), personally I don't like the 3D graphics perspective that much, I don't like the way the potion & food price scales with the level, the whole item thing isn't that well done (for example gambling is useless), some quests are almost impossible to do whilst trying to save your town! Lots of classes are good but some skills are useless. Towns are really hard to defend, I wish it was easier to teleport back to town (you can do it once before you then need a quest to recharge your stone.)

    All in all a great game though.

    This is a review of the expansion, not of the base game and as such i am giving it a low mark because for the price it adds VERY little to the original gameplay experience. The graphics are still sloppy, the gameplay is still repetitive, and to charge this much for 1 measly class is almost a felony (think of it as a DLC ..10$ for 3 classes that are really 1 really powerful class!). I think its great that they added to the game, but the price is simply too high, almost an insult. While i like the game and indeed do enjoy crawling through randomly generated dungeons particularly with friends the stuff the expansion adds does not make it more enjoyable than it was before. More quests... i mean really more trivial b/s quests like go mine ore from the third level.. whoo hoo! Damn those guys at soldak must have spent months putting that together!

    If you love this game thats great, but dont try to blow smoke up peoples asses by giving a slapped together expansion (that to me should have just been included in the game as a patch if they couldnt finish these things for launch) a high score when it is really nothing but a ripoff.
