  1. Demon Stone is absolutely relentless. [Jan 2005, p.81]
  2. A solid action-adventure game that offers the exhilaration of participating in a series of intense and large-scaled melee conflicts.

    My main objection to Demon Stone is its length. The game is MUCH too short.
  4. Who can argue with this level of artistry? [Jan 2005, p.67]

    In fact, it's one of those rare pieces of software that can make up for its gameplay mishaps because of its strong visceral appeal, joining the ranks of games like "Luigi's Mansion," "The Getaway," and "Clock Tower 3."
  6. One of those titles that fans of D&D might wish was a bit deeper and a lot longer. As an action title, it's decently presented, albeit repetitive, and has a creative control scheme, although not fully implemented.
  7. The camera angles are poor to the extent that Demon Stone plays almost like a side-scrolling game, progressing slowly and mundanely from one cluster of enemies to the next.

    The game looks and plays very much like ea's 'the two towers' & 'return of the king'. In fact, most of the enemies The game looks and plays very much like ea's 'the two towers' & 'return of the king'. In fact, most of the enemies could easily pass as lord of the rings characters (mostly orcs). But unlike the LOTR titles, the gameplay here feels awkward. Lining up with the enemy you want to hack and slash is needlessly difficult. It's because of the touchy controls and camera that somehow makes depth difficult to guage. Eventhough the actual graphics are strong, the animation is not. It looks good in screenshots, but not so good in motion. Demon Stone has some elements of a great game, but it's not the complete package. Expand

    This only difference between this and "LOTR: Return of the King" is that "Return of the King" is actually fun.
