    Despite its obvious low budget I’ve already devoted 60 hours to Warhammer Quest – first on iOS, and now on PC. The atmosphere of the Old World recreated by Rodeo Games does not cease to delight me. [03/2014, p.80]

    An entertaining, tactical dungeon crawler with a lot of different classes and a steady supply of items. The cash shop is mildly annoying though, thankfully you don’t really need it.

    A truly old style dungeon crawler that has the merit of slavishly reproduce the mechanics of now unobtainable board game, managing to be fulfilling despite an inescapable simplicity. The main flaw resides in the direct porting from iOS: for the PC version was reasonable to expect some optimization.

    Warhammer Quest is a great digital port of a classic tabletop dungeon crawl. Unfortunately the extra content should be open to everyone. Feel safe to invest only for a full package at a solid discount and you will enjoy many epic adventures of old school awesomeness.

    No, WQ isn’t setting any new major trends in the tactics genre, but it’s a great universe both for those who love Warhammer and for those who just enjoy high fantasy.

    Ultimately, Warhammer Quest is an enjoyable experience, a fun little time waster that delivers slices of dungeon action at an easily digestible pace. But it does so at a price point for content it just doesn't justify.

    Even if I still see the iOS version a good game, Warhammer Quest on PC should had offered a lot more complexity instead of the simple point & click decisions that doesn't allow you to really immerse into the game.

    Warhammer Quest is an old school boardgame-tablet-port RPG that fails to enhance itself for a platform that requires a bit more both in terms of gameplay and aesthetics. If a light RPG adventure is what you are after then Warhammer Quest is a sure bet, but if you're looking for something on par with what the PC market offers nowadays then definitely look elsewhere.

    The game is a very poor (and expensive) porting of the title already available on iOS. Some quests and random events are well-written, but the gameplay is too repetitive and gets tedious quickly.

    It's a lame conversion from the iPad version, so you'd better stick with the mobile one.

    Warhammer Quest is a competent example of a digital board game but in trying to sand its sharp edges and ensure that it's accessible to all, Rodeo has oversimplified the already slight source material.

    There is no accounting for this Quest’s missing element – company. Even bad games can be fun alongside the right sort of people.

    There is fun to be had in five minute bursts as a distraction from doing work, but then that’s what I bought the phone version for. Don’t buy it. And there’s no multiplayer either, in case you were wondering.

    You fight through ugly visuals and repetitive battles just to find yourself in the overpriced real currency store.

    Wherever you go in Warhammer Quest, you will find nothing but repetitive dungeons and battles. The original board game was fun because you played it with live people, and it simply doesn’t work as a pure single-player experience.

    PLEASE NOTE: most of the reviews for the original iOS version are from many years ago, before microtransactions were implemented.

    There is a good game here, which recreates an old board game. Worth an 8 or 9 (a 10 if you could actually see the dice rolls) and the production values are high

    Though the game gets a 1, why? The microtransactions. This is a "dungeon crawl" game were you hunt for gold and loot. Most of the characters are paid DLC. Most of the loot you get is for those DLC characters. They are very expensive to buy INDIVIDUALLY. The gold rewards are dropped at a dismal rate. So there is a "gold store" where you buy gold with real money to speed things up. Yes, almost like a facebook game.

    There are also game breaking weapons you can buy, so you never have any challenge with the game.

    The whole point of the game is to dungeon crawl, survive the challange and find loot and gold (that is the board game in its entirety) Yet this video game version allows you to buy stuff from the start so you can skip all that, leaving you with a hollow game because there is nothing else to do. As stated, the gold drops for those who dont spend real money to progress has been designed so its a very slow progress. Gold is used for everything, from buying items to levelling your characters.

    iOS users also get shafted, as they need to spend about $50 to unlock everything compared to the PC users who get a "deluxe" edition which has everything included for about $30, although still with the gold store microtransactions. There is also a basic version on PC, where you need to buy everything individually like the iOS. $30 itself is on the high-end for such a title ($50 is just ridiculous)

    It is a horrible system, one which abuses it's customers and anyone defending it is guilty of ruining gaming.

    The developers have also stated some of the sleaziest PR talk you can imagine such as:
    "Some customers prepurchased the game expecting to buy in-game gold"
    and
    "We can't remove the gold store, as it would break the game"

    They are not catering to fans of the board game, they are not catering to gamers, they are catering to that "facebook game" personality type. Shame on this developer.

    I'm also seconding the opinion that sleezy microtransactions have ruined the game. Whether its $15 or free, this is a bad game and continuesI'm also seconding the opinion that sleezy microtransactions have ruined the game. Whether its $15 or free, this is a bad game and continues the precedent of companies selling incomplete games and expecting consumers to pay outrageous sums to purchase content that should have been included in the original purchase.

    With any luck niche games will stop this practice in the next few years.

    Micro-transactions ruin yet another franchise. Absolute trash. This isn't a game...it is a cash shop. Words that come to mind thinkingMicro-transactions ruin yet another franchise. Absolute trash. This isn't a game...it is a cash shop. Words that come to mind thinking about this game: puss, vomit, feces, and toenail fungus. If you by this game, you hurt gaming in general, and yourself specifically. Full Review »
