    Likewise, the graphics are cute, and full of fun little flourishes; it may start out looking like your standard retro indie game, but when your knight who can't see in 3D turns around to reveal that (s)he is flat, or when your knight with blurry vision sees everything in his or her immediate vicinity with a big blur around them, it's hard not to be charmed.

    With great gameplay, challenging enemy encounters, and well put together RPG elements you should grab this game.

    There's hardly something wrong in the Playstation consoles version of Rogue Legacy: this is still the same, excellent roguelite rpg seen last year on PC. But now you get to play it at 60 fps and on the go, thanks to the cross buy option.

    Cellar Door Games' Rogue Legacy is inherently hardcore and unapologetically retro. It's a game that should be marred by repetition, yet its careful blend of genres features such great variety and personality it's near impossible to stop playing.

    Rogue Legacy is a frightfully fun twist on Castlevania, but the nature of its RPG backbone can turn the adventure into a bit of a grind.

    That Rogue Legacy got a lousy port is particularly damning, because the game is otherwise perfectly suited to the handheld, with an average round lasting no more than ten minutes but with depth encouraging much longer sessions if possible.

    Fun but flawed, Rogue Legacy falls somewhat short of its lofty aspirations. But you can't fault the developers for aiming high.

    Perfect game. Runs perfectly on the Vita and the gameplay of doing a 10 minute run works great for on the go. Cross save is transparentPerfect game. Runs perfectly on the Vita and the gameplay of doing a 10 minute run works great for on the go. Cross save is transparent without manually uploading it. Controls are nailed. Best Vita game ever.

    I've died more times in the past hour than my entire play through of Dark Souls 2. Brutal, sinister, and flat out unpredictable, Rogue LegacyI've died more times in the past hour than my entire play through of Dark Souls 2. Brutal, sinister, and flat out unpredictable, Rogue Legacy sounds like it should be un-fun. But the more I yell "THAT'S BULL****" the more I find myself charming up to its unfair mechanics and homages (one of my "heirs" is/was "Lady Shanoa"). The pick up and play style is a perfect fit for the Vita, and the ever present just-one-more-run syndrome will kick in over and over again while you die, laugh, swear, and forgive. Borrowing the procedurally generated structure of roguelikes, while taking the Metroidvania formula and running with it, it is near perfect. Worth every penny. The inclusion of cross-buy and cross-save are just icing on the cake. Full Review »

    Divertido y adictivo por igual juego de plataformas. 9/10

    Me duró 26h pasármelo (llegar al boss final) pero cuando te lo pasas no acaba la historia. El castillo, que es el lugar donde transcurre el juego, cambia y se vuelve más complicado con enemigos más difíciles y mini-boses especiales que antes no había.

    El sistema de elegir 3 personajes (hijos) diferentes cada vez que empiezas una partida, con sus habilidades y defectos, hace que le juego sea aún más extenso y poco repetitivo.

    Las diferentes runas de habilidades hacen que a parte de querer pasarte el juego quieras conseguir monedas para desbloquearlas y ganar nuevos ''poderes''.

    No va a cambiar a historia de los videojuegos, ni es el primero en su estilo, por eso no se lleva un 10, pero si lo calificaría como uno de los mejores juegos de plataformas de los últimos 10 años.
