    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.

    Overall, Dice Legacy is a fun stress machine that borrows the better parts of other genres. While it doesn’t always do everything well or necessarily telegraph its harder ideas ahead of time, it can be a tense thrill when you get further than you have before. Never before have dice been featured in a game where they’re the biggest thing that matters. If you like rolling dice then I compel you to check out this mash up. Just be ready for the challenge ahead of you.

    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.

    Dice Legacy has some very good ideas, as well as an innovative gameplay based on dices, without knocking you out with questions of probability and risk calculation. But without being too complex, this game turns out to be very demanding, and it will even challenge city builder regulars, since it requires to manage many tasks and problems in real time, leaving little room for error. Finally, the fact that its lifespan is based only on more difficult variants of the same story may quickly tire players, since it does not offer other maps, nor varied scenarios, nor easy access to the dices from previous games.

    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.

    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.
