  1. Very punishing death penalties and boring gameplay.

    Banking almost solely on the nostalgic value of its namesake, Nightmare of Druaga is an extremely average dungeon crawl that’s infested with problems that keep it from being entertaining in almost any way.
  3. So many other titles offer a richer, more fulfilling experience that it's hard to imagine why someone would want to tackle this anachronism. [Nov 2004, p.156]
  4. Sound is almost embarrassingly unremarkable.
  5. Anyone who has enjoyed any of the technical, aesthetic, and gameplay improvements of the past decade will probably want to pass this one up [Dec 2004, p.114]
