  • Summary: A blend of third-person action and procedural dungeon-delving. Oh, and perma-death. Adventure alone or with up to 3 friends in a magical deathtrap that reconstructs itself each time you play. Will you find the exit, or die trying?

    After the relentless grimdark of FROM Software's stellar Souls and Bloodborne offerings, Necropolis feels like a breath of fresh (fetid, really) air. Hellbent on not taking itself too seriously and offering solid roguelike, dungeon crawler mechanics underpinned by a finely tuned combat system, Necropolis is not a game you want to be sleeping on.

    I enjoyed Necropolis enough to try and keep playing to get the full experience, but I myself never got past Level 2 out of 10. And there is no option to adjust the difficulty, so it ends up being a grind just to survive. Perhaps that’s what some people want out of a game, but for me, I want to feel like I’m getting some sort of progress, and constant permadeath doesn’t quite do it for me.

    The PS4 version of Necropolis is spoilt by the lazy conversion of the PC edition, with a weak combat system and a bad optimization.

    A pretty mediocre clone of Dark Souls. Bad level design, even worse controls and some technical issues, make Necropolis a completely forgettable game.

    Would you prefer a tenacious coach who encourages you to do better or an obstinate teacher who seems aroused by failure? Necropolis expects its audience to compose the latter. No one needs their games to be nurturing or complimentary, but the decency to spotlight meaningful content and abandon waste is a manner Necropolis could stand to learn.

    Necropolis feels like an amalgamation of 'Dark Souls,' dungeon crawlers, and roguelikes. Sadly, it also seems to miss the mark on what is enjoyable about those games. The combat lacks variety, the randomized dungeon wasn't fun to explore, and technical issues keep it from ever feeling fair. If anything, it suffers from trying to do too much. When combined with the shocking exclusion of online matchmaking for cooperative play, I simply can't recommend it.

    This game is a desaster! Don't bother to waste ANY of your money or time on it. Everything is in a state of Beta or even worse. It stuttersThis game is a desaster! Don't bother to waste ANY of your money or time on it. Everything is in a state of Beta or even worse. It stutters regularly from time to time, the entire engine feels so bold and clonky, it's a nightmare to just look around. For the super-simple grafics, it doesn't even bother to run on 60 fps, no, you have to be bothered with 30 fps. The "combat" is a joke, even so the way you dash. If anyone mentioned this to be a dark souls kinda, it is not! Absolutely not! No wonder those days are rarely trial-versions availalbe... you'd exactly know what kinda crap you'd get!

    What in gods name was this supposed to be?! It's an unfinished, broken piece of s$%&!
