    We have loved Dice Legacy for its original concept and for how it performed in game. We did not expect it to work so well, given the conditions, but we are happy to have been proven wrong.

    Dice Legacy is a competent strategy/survival game with some neat and well-implemented ideas; the random element is there, but generally easy to handle, and good planning trumps sheer luck. However, it isn’t particularly rich in content, and it might get grindy if you’re aiming for the hardest difficulties.

    Overall, Dice Legacy is enjoyable as long as you enjoy a challenge. It has an unusual mix of gameplay that sets it apart from other games of this type. While the dice and some of your decisions add a random element to the game, it feels like Dice Legacy does have an idea of how it wants you to play the game. You don’t necessarily have the freedom to try a variety of strategies, if you want to succeed, that is. Perhaps that’s what makes it more of a survival game and less of a strategy game.

    Dice Legcay has a surprising concept and offers a tense and pleasant management experience, which during your first steps could put your nerves to the test. However, once the mechanics are assimilated, the progression is done in a fairly natural way, but does not manage to engage the player over time, Dice Legacy struggling to renew itself and contenting itself with offering constrained variants on the same card. , that only the most sensitive to the approach of the game will want to explore from cover to cover. There is nonetheless a game complete in its mechanics, quite original and enjoyable, which would however have gained by seeking more to renew itself.

    A smart, peculiar city builder that ends in a gruelling uphill battle against a rival city.

    Dice Legacy is an interesting take on city builders, but not every aspect of the game falls into place.

    Dice Legacy is just too shallow and too reminiscent of other, better games. It's just far too simplistic to have any kind of real replayability, and since your first playthrough will be done in four or five hours at most, that leaves little to play for. Sure, the game does try to extend its replay value by offering different starting conditions and rule restrictions to try to get you to play it again, but it's the same meta every time with no real variation. There's no shortage of good roguelikes out there. Crack those open instead. You'll have a lot more fun that way.

    This game is not one of the ones I usually play, but nevertheless it has engaged me a lot.
    The initial impact can be aggressive especially with the mechanics of winter, but once you understand how the game works it is a lot of fun to manage the various situations that arise.

    I recommend starting with the normal or better yet peaceful mode to calmly understand everything.

    Para los que somos fans de los juegos de tablero, decir que Dice Legacy es un juego de asignación de trabajadores/dados más o menos resumePara los que somos fans de los juegos de tablero, decir que Dice Legacy es un juego de asignación de trabajadores/dados más o menos resume todo lo que es la experiencia de este juego. Aunque hay algunas cosas propias del entorno digital, como el impacto del tiempo (aunque, desde el ultimo parche, se puede jugar con pausa activa), la mayoría de lo que haces es ir construyendo cosas, e ir asignando los distintos dados a cada una de las tareas. El loop básico de juego es ese, mientras avanzamos terreno camino de derrotar a los Otros. No hay tal cosa como una campaña, solo diversos escenarios que cambian un poco las cosas, y las diferencias entre personajes es relativamente menor. El resultado es que lo que el juego ofrece lo puedes disfrutar, en buena medida, en una única partida, lo cual reduce el interés en rejugarlo. Con el roadmap anunciado y la última expansión gratuita está claro que son conscientes de este problema y están trabajando activamente en corregirlo y darle más opciones y más rejugabilidad.

    Gráficamente el juego es discreto, como lo es también su aspecto sonoro. Discreto tirando a pobre. Y, al menos en mi experiencia, no me he encontrado con bugs de gravedad de ningun tipo, solo algunas cosas que eran poco legibles y que están trabajando en hacer más visibles.

    Por todo ello, no puedo decir que Dice Legacy sea un mal juego, pero tampoco es uno que os vaya probablemente a marcar. Un 6.
