    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.

    Until I found this **** piece of **** A MICROTRANSACTION OF 70 POUNDS? At this point, it's not a microtransaction anymore, it's a megatransaction.
    Anyone who pays 70 pounds for a free to play game is literally, and I really do mean literally, retarded.

    Simply the worst money making scheme I have seen on the Android market yet. That the marketplace even allows microtransaction games of suchSimply the worst money making scheme I have seen on the Android market yet. That the marketplace even allows microtransaction games of such illicit nature is a testament to the corruption evident in today's game industry. That EA could openly create such an evisceration of a beloved franchise, and then proceed with malevolent intent to forge reviews (7000 positive reviews on the first day? Yeah right.) and expect additional money for DLC is far beyond human comprehension. The tutorial doesn't even complete. DLC is a component of game design, not a method to create a game by itself. Shame that what EA has essentially created is unwillingly a satire of the predicament that they themselves continue to stoke like a fire. I've seen spyware more subtle in asking for money. Expand
