  • Summary: Each time you die, your child will succeed you. Every child is unique. One child might be colorblind, another might have tourettes-- they could even be a dwarf.

    That's OK, because no one is perfect, and you don't have to be perfect to win this game. But you do have to be pretty darn good
    Each time you die, your child will succeed you. Every child is unique. One child might be colorblind, another might have tourettes-- they could even be a dwarf.

    That's OK, because no one is perfect, and you don't have to be perfect to win this game. But you do have to be pretty darn good because this game is HARD. Fortunately, every time you die all the gold you've collected can be used to upgrade you manor, giving your next child a step up in life and another chance at vanquishing evil.

    Rogue Legacy mixes up genres and, through some inspired design choices, brings out the best in both. A deep and challenging game designed for small sessions and maximum satisfaction.

    Rogue Legacy is one of the best indies available on Xbox One, and you should do what you can to become a part of its family tree – its zany, amusing, dysfunctional family tree.

    As a game where the developers have stated it was inspired by Dark Souls, it’s safe to say Rogue Legacy won’t be for everyone. It’s a game where you are continuously pummelled into the ground until you get better or give up. Those that persevere though will be greatly rewarded.

    Rogue Legacy tests you with a gameplay experience that rewards patience and death.

    If you're looking for an old-school side-scrolling action game that's along the lines of Dark Souls in logic (but not necessarily tone), Rogue Legacy is a sweet addition to your library. It's hard as heck at times, but progress can eventually be felt for those who stick with it, and the retro-style presentation will be right at home with classic NES/SNES gamers.

    This game had me hooked from the beginning. The concept is pretty cool with the fact each generation has different traits. Some down sidesThis game had me hooked from the beginning. The concept is pretty cool with the fact each generation has different traits. Some down sides though are the games extreme difficulty. Some of the achievements are pretty impossible too. Other than that it's pretty great. Expand

My friends told me that it was good that was the only reason why I purchased it. But as soon as I started playing it I knew it was going to not be something I would like. It was very bland and boring and the quality is not very good. 4/10 Expand

It's very annoying to start all over again. Still every entering is different
