Din's Curse Reviewed

GameZone has posted a new review of Soldak Entertainment's Din's Curse, the company's recently released action RPG. In Din's Curse players take the role of an adventurer cursed to walk the lands in a quest for redemption. The game features 141 possible class combinations, an infinite number of dynamically generated towns, and a game world directly impacted by player choices. GameZone gave Din's Curse a score of 8 out of 10.

From the review:

The class sets themselves are standard fare; thereís the heavy-hitting warrior, the stealthy thief, and so on. However, Dinís Curse spices up the playing field with class combinations, so youíre able to develop the sneaky abilities of the thief and combine them with say, the magical talents of the wizard. Admittedly, stealthy moves offer great potential when combined with all sorts of things. Those in doubt need only try wheedling their way into the middle of a crowd of unsuspecting baddies, then blasting them with some horrific spell or other. Each subclass can be further developed with a number of skills, either gradually or by hoarding points until you can afford that one awesome feat youíre dying to try out. Dinís Curse boasts around 140 potential combinations, and experimenting with each one will no doubt extend the gameís somewhat lean campaign.

One major feature of Dinís Curse is the randomization of the world. Whether you have access to a particular villager for a quest, or the layout of a specific dungeon area, is really dependent upon whatever random content the game generates. While possibly intimidating for genre newcomers, most players should not find this sufficient cause for panic. To begin with, youíre still exerting considerable control over your characterís actions Ė the game even offers you a difficulty setting for each area, if you decide you want to fight an easier or tougher group of enemies. More importantly, the random elements keep the game from become too stale and predictable. Youíre not certain when the game will go from calm to messy in the blink of an eye, and much like the real world, there is really no telling what the game world is going throw at your next.
