    Despite these minor criticisms, the game is brilliant. Having played it both with friends and alone, it is obvious that this game is -supposed- to be played with friends. When playing alone, it feels a bit repetitive, but when you add two friends screaming commands in your ear and a third one laughing manically as he plots your demise, this game is pure candy. If you enjoy playing this kind of game with friends, you will love Dungeonland. If you are a friendless loner, however, you might want to give it a miss.

    It's infuriating that the adventure feels so rough around the edges, then, but a range of annoyances are not quite enough to detract from the madcap brilliance at the core of the whole thing.

    Despite a few issues I have with the game, most notably the idea of grinding a bit too often early on, this game is a steal at $9.99. If you see it on a sale and remotely enjoy ARPGs, you need to pick this up immediately.

    In the end, Dungeonland is light on content and features, but that’s okay because it’s an absolute steal for $9.99. Players will get a hell of a little dungeon crawler that can provide hours and hours of entertainment, so long as they have friends to partake in the silliness.

    Dungeonland is ultimately pointless when it comes down to it. Yet it is the good kind of pointless, the kind that still produces entertainment with friends and fills a void. Dungeonland knows it does not amount to much, in fact it revels in it, wilfully mocking itself throughout.

    Dungeonland is nowhere close to perfect, but in multiplayer it’s a brilliant bastard of a game. Just add friends – or enemies.

    Some excellent ideas and multiplayer fun but not enough content as yet. [Apr 2013, p.76]

    All in all, a fantastic effort from Critical Studio that reaches a climax when you've got three friends fighting against the toughest and most numerous hordes. If only it wasn’t for that damn AI.

    Dungeonland does not try to go beyond its limits, rather it shows that true multiplayer with friends it’s as enjoyable as ever. Glitches and poor quantity apart, in the end it manages to keep its dignity.

    Dungeonland is a pretty standard dungeon hack-and-slasher, but is still an original game. You can also play as an evil Dungeon Master and cause mayhem and death amongst the players. Forget the insanely unbalanced singleplayer mode, Dungeonland gets really fun when playing with others.

    The game’s testers deserve having their butts kicked more than the creatures of Dungeonland. [CD-Action 04/2013, p.81]

    Despite its low price, Dungeonland s a repetitive hack 'n' slash, with a really poor gameplay and not so many customization options. The Dungeon Master Mode saves the whole game from a failure.

    Not a particularly tedious action game with hack 'n' slash principles will seize you with its randomly-generated locations, wit, challenge and unusual low price. Afterwards, however, the game will disappoint you with its mechanics and ton of bugs.

    Unfortunately, playing solo is not that fun. Without friends, you're supported in your party by bots, who are mindless and quite incompetent. It becomes even more challenging to get through levels, and without the aspect of teamwork, the whole experience is just dull and not very enjoyable.

    In theory this theme park could be the source of never-ending fun. But in the end it is rather never-ending grind. Nonetheless you can experience some entertaining half hours or so if you have friends on standby for your support.

    Dungeonland just isn't fun. Despite its great art style and goofy sense of humor, the mediocre gameplay gets easily buried beneath a grueling difficulty and a slew of glitches.

    Dungeonland could have done with a good couple more months in the oven.

    This is one of the most fun and challenging games Iv played in years.The game is abound an evil Dungeon Master who runs an amusement park for heros. The developers advertised it a silly and fun multiplier experience and that is exactly what you get. I would go so far as to call this the Mario Party of PC games. That being said, just like Mario Party you are not going to have even half as much fun playing this single player as you would playing with friends. Its clear this game was designed for multiplier and the single player is just a tacked on feature.

    The difficulty of this game is borderlines Hotline Miami level. You take a TON of damage if you get hit, and you die extremely fast. Even on very easy mode. If you do not like hard videogames this is one to avoid. That being said the game has a high skill ceiling and is extremely satisfying to play. Especially when you and your friends all work together and combo ability's to take down the extremely difficult boss monsters. If you are looking for an Epic Narrative with Character growth and a massive RPG world to explore your going to be extremely disappointed because none of that was advertised to began with. The story is extremely bland but its forgivable because of the nature of this game. To continue the Mario Party analogy, No one plays Mario Party for the story. They play it to have fun with friends and occasionally screw them over. The game runs flawlessly on Max settings my 4 year old Laptop though I did experience a few non game breaking bugs, stuff like monsters occasionally running into walls, or spawning but not attacking. But these bugs were rare and not that big an issue. Overall 9/10. -1 for bugs and single player.

    Love this game. This is one of the best top down multiplayer games I have ever played. It requires you to really use teamwork to be successful and there are tons of customization for your characters. There's a great feeling of accomplishment when you and your friends make it through all three stages of an amusement park, collecting mad gold and buying tons of items for your character. Has great RPG elements and tons of fun combinations of elements to kill the oncoming waves with. If you like multiplayer games and have ever been a fan of top down RPG's, then this is the game for you. Full Review »
