  1. It’s considerably derivative and it doesn’t bother with experimental gameplay or ideas.
  2. An enjoyable brew of lush graphics, solid voice-acting, and fun gaming that once again reminds me why I'm still hacking and slashing 20 years down the road. [March 2005, p.66]
  3. A small evolutionary step above what Stormfront did with The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and players who appreciate that brand of brute-force, hack-and-slash gameplay should find in it a great-looking and enjoyable, if somewhat familiar, experience.
  4. But at around 7 or 8 hours and with no multiplayer or real longevity beyond playing on Hard difficulty, it's just as well that the game has a budget price tag.
  5. 70
    Demon Stone deserves 75% because it’s not the best hack and slash game out there, probably because it’s a measly port that they probably threw together at the last minute.
  6. The game is also rather short, which is both good and bad; it's bad because… well, because *I* say it's bad; and good, because you'll get sick of that linear hack-and-slash action.
  7. The "Serious Sam" of the "D&D" genre: fast, brutal, and ultimately a teeny bit dull. [Apr 2005, p.100]
  8. 65
    A solid hack-n-slash game that will appeal to fans of the genre, though it'll wear thin quickly.
  9. 60
    There's a decent plot, and the game's fantastic graphics really make you feel like you're in Faerûn. And for a brawler, it's a very playable game. However, compared to other games, it's more like an interactive movie.
  10. The incessant clicking is reminiscent of, but nearly as gratifying as, using a retractable ballpoint pen. [Apr 2005, p.86]
  11. If you want a game with good fight mechanics that stands up well on the PC, you should get "Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within." If you want a standard shoddy port of a console game, you should get this. It's fun, but it doesn't belong.

    While unskippable cut scenes and repetition keep this title from being great, it's still worth a quick play through. There were many momentsWhile unskippable cut scenes and repetition keep this title from being great, it's still worth a quick play through. There were many moments of true epic-ness throughout the game's 10 mission campaign that left me just interested enough to put up with the average-ness of everything else. Full Review »
