    A blood soaked, stylish-beyond-reckoning testament to the art and alchemy of flawless video game design. The Crimson Court provides a substantial addition to one of the greatest, most obsessive tests of gaming character ever created. Indispensable.

    With The Crimson Court, I feel like Red Hook is taking us even deeper into Lovecraftian parentage, not just in expanding its supernatural mythos and pantheons, but also by delving deeper into the sense of tragedy, the sorrow of fragile mortality that must be a part of all horror.

    All the additions to the base game, from the new hero, to the ultra creepy Mosquito Vampires, are glorious, and in the end, add a fantastic amount of good content to an already great game. Ten dollars earns you an easy 30+ hours re-exploring the Ancestor’s Homestead, and while I am loathe to make value calls, this one is so easy that not making it feels wrong. If you have not picked this up yet, stop wasting time. The Countess calls…

    If you’re new to the dungeon or it's been a long time since you ventured into its depths, do yourself a favor and get your sea legs ready before wading into the bloody pools of The Crimson Court. If you’re an experienced delver looking for a new challenge, then by all means, step into the moonlight and find out what the night has in store for you.

    The Crimson Court offers a dense, well-made addition that enriches an already excellent title with fresh content, playability and balanced difficulty. The bloodthirsty monsters, the masochist hero, the giant epic dungeon, and the pile of new difficulties to keep all chars alive and sane are well worth the price.

    Highly recommended, but only if you feel in harmony with the Philosopher's philosophy.

    While I do love how seamlessly the new content has been integrated into the game, it might need a bit of balancing before it becomes truly fun and engaging to play. As it stands, The Crimson Court feels too much like an unfair beginner’s trap which continues to punish players with devastating consequences that you can’t plan for.
