  1. Since it’s the UK version we are reviewing here, and most of the problems from the USA release have been fixed I think I’m being fair in the score I’ve awarded.

    Imagine an old-school RPG with loads of action and dungeon crawling without any asinine anime kids with their sissy tales of woe. With Dungeon Lords it's treasures, monsters and slicing and dicing all the way - just like it was in the good old days.
  3. The title simply appears to have been rushed out without any testing, which is a real shame because underneath its problems, Dungeon Lords is a solid and enjoyable, if not ground-breaking RPG. [PC Zone]

    So much squandered potential, it's mind-boggling. Needs serious patching. [Aug 2005, p.66]
  5. Glitches, bugs, missing features and horrible gameplay are all a part of Dungeon Lords. Avoid this one at all costs.
  6. A game that could have been an amazing return of the CRPG, due to a severe lack of polish and some big issues with bugs and failed ventures, becomes premature bargain bin stuffing.

    Very captivating game play. Has some mild bugs but a good blend of action, role playing and strategy.

    Mechanically, the game has some interesting points. Graphics are good. Sound leaves alot to be desired as location can muffle voices to the Mechanically, the game has some interesting points. Graphics are good. Sound leaves alot to be desired as location can muffle voices to the point where you can't hear what is being said. Character appearance customization has been completely disabled in the creation process. Manual leaves alot to be desired in terms of detailing gameplay, UI, functionality, and options. The game has alot of potential, but was rushed out the door in a very incomplete state. Collapse

    The most pathetic attempt at making a pc game ever attempted. The graphics are beyond horrible, the controls and animations are laughable, The most pathetic attempt at making a pc game ever attempted. The graphics are beyond horrible, the controls and animations are laughable, (your characters upper body and legs remain stationary during combat and the only thing you see moving is the characters arm from the elbow down, like a stick man), there's no music, no battle sounds, no swords clanging or explosions from spells, only faint footsteps from your character can be heard..pathetic. This is hands down the worst pc game of all time. And the sad part is that this is what I recieved for Christmas. Please, I'm begging you to take my advice, and avoid this pile of dog doo doo at all costs. If someone tries to give it to you turn and run away as fast as you can. All dungeon lords CD's should be collected and destroyed. Expand

    It's bad enough when you have to download a patch to make a full priced game playable, but Dungeon Lords doesn't even have a patch It's bad enough when you have to download a patch to make a full priced game playable, but Dungeon Lords doesn't even have a patch yet. This game is basically an alpha release at best. Save your money. Don't reward publishers that let unfinished products get released. Expand
