    Daggerdale, as these things go, isn't bad, and you do get a lot of game for your money here, particularly if you go through it cooperatively. There are never quite enough co-op dungeon crawlers on the market, and while this isn't a particularly pretty or intuitive one, it allows you to kill a whole boatload of monsters while stealing all their money to spend on ways to improve your ability to kill entire boatloads of slightly tougher monsters, and that's pretty much all you need out of this kind of game.

    It's really hard to resist and not dub this game as "Buggerdale". Surprisingly, there are moments when it plays even better than its full-priced rivals. [August 2011, p.107]

    Cooperative dungeon crawler based on Dungeons & Dragons rules might sound like RPG heaven. But it is not for so many reasons – and that's a real shame and pity. [July 2011]

    By the time you reach the end boss, complete with compulsory quick-time events, you'll be glad it's over.

    Dungeons And Dragons: Daggerdale barely has any memorable features to it, as it is nothing more than a generic dungeon crawler. This is worsened by the repetitive missions and a lack of checkpoints. The decent controls and the co-op add a little enjoyment, but cannot save this game from disaster.

    Slow, clunky, and prone to glitchiness, playing Daggerdale feels like a sentence to an actual dungeon.

    A game that's functional in the strictest sense of the word, but still ugly and uninspiring.

The control for the PC version is surprisingly good played with a 360 gamepad. It's not complicated or hard, but it is good and easy fun. Reminiscent of Gauntlet, Dynasty Warriors, State of Emergency, but a little more finesse. It's priced accordingly, expectations may ruin a decent little game. Expand

    Daggerdale is not as bad as people say here, it's not a great or a superb game, but it's a fair game.

    Lower your expectation greatly, then prepare to still be disappointed. It's a linear game that tries not to be. Run around in circles in theLower your expectation greatly, then prepare to still be disappointed. It's a linear game that tries not to be. Run around in circles in the same small area doing quests while you "level up" meeting various NPCs that all look exactly the same having you doing completely uninspired repetitive tasks. Graphics are good, controls are good, game play and story are bad. It's like taking the bad parts of three different games and putting them in a blender and having to drink the results. Most games have a big bad evil guy at the end you have to beat. This game has a big bad evil guy trying to charge you money to play it. Expand
