    I can certainly think of worse ways to spend your time, but that list would pale in comparison to the staggeringly long catalogue of better ways.

    Hunted: The Demon's Forge suffers from an identity crisis. It can't quite figure out if it is a thirdperson shooter or a action RPG. The combat tendens towards being boring and the level design is less than inspirational. Some of the side quests are good, but that's just not enough for this game.

    Gears Of War meets Diablo turns out not to be a classic pairing after all, or at least not when it comes to this low rent hotchpotch of other people's ideas.

    As a resurrection of the dungeon crawler genre as it wants to appear, Hunted: The Demon's Forge just is another FPS without any real subtleties. It's a shame since its world is fine and action globally ok, but some camera issues, a poor story, some clunky gameplay and outdated production values clearly undermine the fun.

    A real lazy effort where the much-hyped co-op doesn't do squat.

    This game is like a gears of war in a fantasy setting. It is very fast paced. The coop has a lot of elements that make it different from other coop games. Full Review »

    I have No idea why there are so many 10s for this game, while Hunted is not a bad game, it definitley is NOT a 10

    me and my brother played
    half the day and made it to chapter 2, I also messed around with the level editor until I learned what I could do with it

    The game plays fine once you've figured out the controls and what each character is meant for
    If you have a buddy great, if not the A.I. takes over and that's fine the A.I. has not let me down yet

    Hunted is a very linear game which is fine so long as its a long game and from what I can tell it should be but if thats a huge problem then you should get Hunted, not even the level editer will save you here

    What I did not like the varity of monsters, while we have not gone very far into the game ( I hope) there have only been about 4 different types Spiders, swords guys, shield n sword guys, and armor guys

    The cover system hardly works the way I would like it to, which is exactly when I don't want it, causing my brother to die while I tried to run for a potion to save him only to be forced into cover when I run past a rock

    Hunted, even at its easiest seeting Hunted can be difficult thanks to its health system forcing you to die over and over again to figure out how to get past some parts
    ex. walk down the stairs and get sniped (k we know there's snipers)
    Die again (k we know where they are now)
    Die again (gotta kill these other guys that pop up to kill the snipers)
    Die again (both of us have to kill the other guys then the snipers)
    Made it, low hp, no potions
    O hi theres two big guys now

    Overall the game has many flaws but none of them are truly game breaking, once (or if) you make it over that first hump of frustration you and your buddy (or A.I.) will find some enjoyment with the game

    I'd reccomend you rent Hunted first to see if its your thing, if not you saved yourself some money

    Finally a good cooperative rpg/hack n slash experience. Coop works amazing and the specific character abilities made it interesting and necessary for teamwork through every part of the game so far. Controls are great and make dodging and pulling off abilities in a jam easy. Graphics are not the best but are not any worse than Dragon Age. If you are looking for a fun and entertaining cooperative rpg then this game is the ticket. Good job inXile Full Review »
