    Dungeons 2 is a colorful strategy game like Dungeon Keeper. The charming style and the mix of running ominous dungeons and raiding the world makes Dungeons 2 a solid game. The terrible jokes during the campaign however, do not do the atmosphere in this game good.

    Maybe Dungeons 2 plays a little safe by ditching some of the more intriguing aspects of the previous game (I still think the idea of using overconfident adventurers as a form of drainable resource is a fantastically twisted conceit that could have been fleshed out further) in favour of going back to the roots of the dungeon management genre, but it’s hard to criticise Realmforge too much for that when the game is this enjoyable.

    Dungeons 2 lack some deep in the RTS part, but compensate it with a good dungeon building section.

    The basic substance of Dungeons 2 is really good. You can tell that the developers had good ideas and have invested a lot of heart and soul into their baby.

    Dungeons 2 is a most successful RTS/management game than its lackluster predecessor, but is not yet able to approach to the same levels of Dungeon Keeper (and after all it was obvious). This Realmforge Studios hybrid works in the management part (funny and quite deep), but loses points when it tries to be Warcraft III and offers too simplistic RTS sections with little personality.

    An attempt to resurrect the old classic succeeds in capturing its atmosphere. The game is ruined unfortunately by its poor strategic part and (sometimes) an embarrassing humor. [Issue#253]

    If you enjoy strategy games and on top of that have fond memories of Dungeon Keeper you should definitely buy Dungeons II. [07/2015, p.50]

This is a properly fun game! I love the narrator, the silly names (the naming-staff must have had a ball coming up with some of the names) and the nudges in virtually every direction to other famous games and the jokes. I found it to be a game that's both easy to learn and easy to love, but harder to master. But if you didn't have to think, and sometimes rethink, your strategies it would be rather boring. Expand

    La primavera toca las cálidas llanuras nuevamente, posando sus suaves rayos sobre las delicadas flores y acariciandolas dulcemente con ligerasLa primavera toca las cálidas llanuras nuevamente, posando sus suaves rayos sobre las delicadas flores y acariciandolas dulcemente con ligeras brisas mientras los unicornios pastan a sus anchas. Los reinos de la tierra media... quiero decir de este mundo de fantasía nada inspirado en otros como WoW, SDLA, entre otros... están en paz desde hace mucho tiempo. Pero Sauron, digo... el que no quiere ser nombrado... mierda, el Mal Absoluto, ha llegado para acabar con toda la asquerosa bonanza instaurada desde hace mucho en la región.

    En resumidas cuentas, esta es la historia de Dungeons 2, donde manejaremos en esta ocasión al mal para destruir el bien haya donde enviamos a nuestra horda compuesta por orcos, trolls, Nagas y Duendes. Su manera cómica de romper la cuarta pared, introduciendo un montón de coñás y guiños referentes principalmente a sagas de fantasía, son simplemente divertidisimas.

    Referente a la jugabilidad tiene dos apartados a simple vista, un """Tower Defender""", el cual será una mazmorra donde extraer recursos, reclutar unidades, entrenarlas, investigar mejoras... todo ello ampliando cual Gnomoria (lógicamente, obviando las diferencias). Los enemigos pueden llegar desde distintas entradas, y les podremos hacer caminos con trampas (de aquí lo de Tower Defender).
    Si utilizamos las entradas, nuestras tropas irán al mundo exterior, donde las manejaremos cual RTS.
    Pero tiene un fallo destacable, y es que las investigaciones, mejoras y demás tardan demasiado en hacerse, siendo que para conseguir todo/lo indispensable en una partida, vas a tardar bastante, alargando una partida más allá de la hora. Un claro ejemplo de esto son las dos últimas misiones, durando alrededor de dos horas cada una. Como dato, la campaña dura 10 horas más o menos.

    Aplaudir el doblaje al Español, me parece maravilloso y muy necesario para un juego que depende tanto de una buena narración.

    Lo único que me da pena es no haberlo conocido antes, pues, al igual que muchos otros, acabo de conocer esta saga por que HumbleBundle la ha regalado (imagino que para promocionar el próximo lanzamiento de la tercer parte).

    Por aquí han captado a un futuro comprador. No hace falta decir que recomiendo el juego sin dudarlo, ya no solo para los amantes de la estrategia, sino también para aquellos de la fantasía por todos los guiños presentes.

Game is very entertaining, but it seems unfinished on the technical side. For example to send the orcs outside the dungeon I needed to press many times on the dungeon door until I got the exact point. Same to grab stuff with the hand. It becomes annoying after some time. The worst part is path finding. I have all my minions running towards a wall when they should be mining. Patch resolved pathfinding so now the game is playable . Still crashes now and then and auto save is hit or miss. Upgrading from 6 to 7 Expand

    Mais c’est surtout l’interface qui irrite le plus : peu claire et mal présentée, rapidement bordélique au fur et à mesure que les salles et unités peuplent le donjon qu’on aménage tant bien que mal. La méthode de contrôle à la « ZQSD » nécessite à chaque fois d’activer le clavier azerty, car par défaut le jeu démarre en qwerty : on se demande pourquoi, vu que c’est développé par un studio allemand ?!… (à moins que les claviers allemands soient en qwerty ?).

    L’autre méthode de contrôle en mode STR ne permet pas de dézoomer suffisamment, ce qui nuit considérablement à la vue d’ensemble et partant à toute tentative de gestion efficace. Globalement, il faut résoudre les situations comme le jeu l’a prévu, sinon ça ne marche pas et vous échouez systématiquement. Déjà qu’on se débat régulièrement avec l’interface ratée, c’est donc pas gagné ! En outre, l’humour volontiers idiot, pour ne pas dire mongolito, s’avère usant et très énervant à la longue et la voix narquoise du narrateur nous les casse franchement.

    Enfin, un mot sur la version DVD du jeu qui nécessite une connexion pour bénéficier des mises-à-jour (et de créer un compte chez Kalypso) : le lanceur télécharge la màj, puis réinstalle le jeu sans qu’on puisse intervenir dans son répértoire par défaut, ignorant totalement notre répertoire d’installation initial… (qui se trouvait sur un autre disque dur !). Impossible de le remettre à sa place, sinon le jeu marche pas et retélécharge le patch et se réinstalle toujours dans son répertoire par défaut : oui, c’est vraiment des baltringues, chez Kalypso !
