    One of the best dungeon romps I've played this year. The scale of the adventure may not be epic but the overall package is pure unadulterated addiction. If you like role-playing games then you'll love FATE.
  2. If there was ever a game to hook a casual player on the charms of dungeon hacking, or absorb an old vet whose time has become a commodity, FATE is it. [Sept 2005, p.48]

    WildTangent deserves a huge amount of praise for delivering a remarkably addictive dungeon crawl, and at a mere $20, it's a fate anyone who enjoyed the solo portion of Diablo shouldn't hesitate to meet.
  4. Fate isn't going to glue new brain cells inside your skull, but it isn't going to murder the ones you have. It's a good time, it really never reaches an end, and it may be the best way to while away the lifetime between now and "Diablo III."
  5. It's a fully 3D action RPG that's like a combination of Diablo and its sequel, but with better graphics.
  6. Hack-and-slash addicts will enjoy the old-school experience. [Aug 2005, p.58]

    Fate certainly isn’t the most innovative title out there. In fact, it’s quite easily labeled as a "Diablo" clone, and inherits its predecessor’s endlessly repetitive combat and gameplay. However, this game also somehow manages to stay fun hour after hour.

    This game is 10/10 for a reason.
    It started my gaming addiction it used to be the only game I would play ever time I visited my grandma's
    house. Without this game I would have never started playing games. Expand

    This is a Darkstone clone with improved graphics and no weapon durability (I hate weapons degrading). Since I love Darkstone, I was very happy to find this bargain priced gem of a dungeon crawler. Expand

    Addictive and fun. Excellent game and even more impressive when you realize how small the team was and how quickly it was made. Kudos.

    Not very innovative, but surprisingly fun. It's a Diablo clone, so if you enjoyed Diablo, you'll like this. I've played other Diablo clones but this one is more fun (even though it may be simpler). You'll get many hours of gameplay for only 20 bucks. Expand

    Hack and slash. Boring.
