    Dungeon Keeper’s pared-down reboot is fun on its own right, even if it's not quite the same creature as the excellent classic games it’s based on.

    Dungeon Keeper for iOS is a well-made mobile update of a classic.

    It's not Dungeon Keeper, but Dungeon Keeper has enough going for it that it's worth a punt.

    It's a huge shame, because Dungeon Keeper is such a great franchise. I vividly remember getting hooked on the original for the very first time, and hooking in non-strategy fans with its unique perspective and visual style. But you're getting none of that here, as you're instead presented with a hollow freemium shell of what once was.

    It could've been a chance to give a second life to an old classic, but EA got this all wrong. The managing side is poor, and a greedy microtransaction system ultimately spoils the fun.

    The tragedy of Dungeon Keeper is that every so often, it shows glimpses of what makes it great. You can see the classic game is in there somewhere: its genius, and what it could have been. But then the gates slam shut, as though the Dungeon Keeper himself is kept in a larger meta-dungeon, whose bean-counting overlord tells you to come back later, or maybe even tomorrow. Or pay up.

    Dungeon Keeper is not a video game, not any more. Instead it’s just a virtual beggar, constantly demanding your spare change and offering nothing in return.

    Ignore any and all positive comments. This is just as big a scam as those unwinnable tv games only morons play. Do not buy this game. Do notIgnore any and all positive comments. This is just as big a scam as those unwinnable tv games only morons play. Do not buy this game. Do not even download it. Don't ever come anywhere near an EA licensed game ever again in your life. Honestly, do yourself a huge favor. Anything EA touches is or will become pure garbage. Take a stand already softies. Hasn't it come far enough by now ? Sjeesh. Look at this **** filth. Expand

Worst thing about this is that they are using a name of a great past videogame trying to fool people to download it, as they did with rollercoaster tycoon mobile.
    This is not what gamers want: gamers want full games without any IAP, even if at a higher price. Stop this **** EA! You deserve this metacritic.
