    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 what tossed me into the world of gaming. I have to plainly state that this is my all time #1 game in the universe (next to Skyrim). The graphics are phenomenal, the creatures, monsters and progression of difficulty is within perfect mixture. I can't say I have found or will ever find a problem in this amazing game. Expand

    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

    With FATE now arriving to Steam, I figured I should share how great of a game it is! This is the precursor to Torchlight and Torchlight II. It's a very simple, loot-fest with a never-ending and randomly-generated dungeon. It's an awesome game, it's easy to pick up and put down, doesn't require a lot of commitment or effort and it's very enjoyable. It now even has 1920x1080 resolution, which I'm pretty sure was a thing of the future when it was released. Some people are complaining about bugs with the Steam version, I've never had a problem with that one or the WildTangent download. This game is a classic, and it deserves no less than a 10/10. Amazingly fun and simple game, and very nostalgic to me and I'm sure a lot of other people that grew up with this game. It has tons of weapons, multiple skills to learn, and a great system to build your character towards a desired style. If you want to be a wizard, upgrade magic and the multiple magic skill perks. If you want to be a warrior, you can upgrade the type of weapon you want to use as well as your strength and dexterity. Tons of different ways to play it that will keep it interesting despite the very simplistic gameplay. Get it! Expand

    Obedobie is a moron. Plain and simple. This is, for a low-priced WildTangent PC game, an excellent play. Now it's no Bioware or Bethesda game, that's for sure, however it is playable, and for a good period of time, enjoyable. One thing to note. Years before it was paraded before the gaming community in a high end 360 game, Fate implemented the same weapon generating system that Borderlands uses. It has thousands maybe, tens of thousands, of weapons. Expand
