  1. Din's Curse from Soldak Entertainment is an action RPG with a surprising amount of innovative takes on the genre. Unfortunately, these shining moments are marred by a rough-around-the-edges presentation.
  2. This game is heavily influenced by the likes of Diablo. Average graphics, random dungeons and a massive amount of items are just a few of the borrowed ideas. Nevertheless, aside from the repetitive quests, it's a fairly cool game.
  3. Din's Curse is just another Diablo clone. Ok, maybe It tries to put some innovations to the original formula but, at the end of the story, offers the some experience with some not so inspired design choices and a mediocre graphic.

    If you've still got a 14" monitor or are looking for something to play on your GeForce 2 equipped monster of a PC (this would probably work well on a netbook), Din's Curse is a pretty addictive way to flit away the winter hours.

    Din's Curse is purely a hack n' slash at it's very core.

What separates this hack n' slash from other more mainstreams, is one the Depths of Peril universe and two the randomization of levels. The combination of skill tree's to create unique classes is not new to the RPG/Action scene. It's quite the standard, Soldak entertainment understood this, their group could see what drives the hack n slash market. They've put out two very enjoyable products in Din's Curse and Din's Curse Demon War. The gameplay is simplistic, it's not anything new. Animations are well done, given the built from scratch engine. The game will run on most systems, even older ones. Music is soft, it doesn't overshadow the worldly elements. The story is very simple and lacks any sort of development, but that's not a driving force and honestly shouldn't matter in this style of game. I'm giving it a 7/10, I would recommend playing this one and the expansion. Check out Depth's of Peril too, solid games, by a intelligent gaming company. Full Review »

It has the customary moreishness of most decent hack 'n' slash titles but it's lacking soul. If you like your hack and slash to have very little brain involvement and lots of action then you will love this game and come back to it over and over. If you prefer something just a little more cerebral then look elsewhere. Full Review »

    Alright, in case you stopped reading about this game after reading some of its quirks from other reviews, I would give this one a chance. ForAlright, in case you stopped reading about this game after reading some of its quirks from other reviews, I would give this one a chance. For those familiar with diablo 2, this game's basics will come natural however, it is probably 5 times more intense in regards to what can happen and what you are up against. Every world is different and because of that, you will almost always be surprised. It's true that there really isnt much of a story, but i cant name an action/rpg that had a story. I would say that if you like a challenge, to give it a try as it will really test you. If you dont like fast paced games, then you probably shouldnt be reading this. Full Review »
