Average User Score: 4.3Jul 6, 2012Bought it this evening and played through the lengthy tutorials and a couple of games. I should say upfront that I haven't played Dungeon Twister the board game, but I'm familiar with similar games and mechanics. The game introduces concepts well throughout the tutorial, which is lengthy because of the complicated nature of the ruleset and the different moves of the characters. It's great value for a complete version of a board game (along the same lines as xbox live Catan or Ticket to Ride). There's no offline multiplayer which is really unfortunate and easily the biggest negative.
It's far too early to tell if the AI holds up to a lot of repeat plays, but it's a faithful recreation of the original game at its core. Hopefully there'll be a decent following online which will make it absolutely worthwhile. IGN's very low score seems unfair when you consider the low price. It's a real shame that it's the most visible review and I hope it gets some better coverage over the next few days. The game does look and sound pretty crappy. I've been muting the music and picking something else to have in the background. The graphics aren't great either, but at least the colour scheme and models are easy to differentiate so there's no confusion about what's actually going on. This is a game for anyone who likes deep strategy and isn't scared off by an initially steep learning curve. It will take a couple of hours to understand the rules, but once you do the game is very intuitive. I love that excellent modern board games are getting console conversions. For the price you are getting a unique game for a very low price.… Expand
