Din's Curse Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Gaming Nexus has posted a new review of Soldak Entertainment's Din's Curse. In the game 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. Gaming Nexus gave the game a B- letter grade.

From the review:

The quests themselves are gained from the various townsfolk (and the hulking Din himself) who stand around topside. Failure to complete a quest often leads to a loss of reputation, the possible loss of townsfolk, and eventually the destruction of the town itself. In addition, some quests can be failed even if they are not accepted from the quest-givers, so the tactic of lingering on one quest at a time is a poor one. In fact, if played like the traditional action-RPG, in which one methodically clears level after level, the town will soon be in flames. Quests goals are randomly sprinkled throughout the multi-level dungeons, with targets often buried deep within the underworld. Much of my time was spent racing past hordes of foes to find my way to deeper levels before my time ran out.

And the monsters don't just hang out meekly by, waiting to be killed. Each dungeon has a boss monster, who takes an active role in the town's demise. Occasionally warning notices will be given, indicating that an uprising is taking place on a given level, or that a particular monster is getting uppity. Wait too long, and these monsters will take to the streets of the town itself, wreaking havoc on the townsfolk. I found the monsters that made it to town to be quite a handful to deal with, and if I took too long getting back to town to the rescue, half or more of the townsfolk (including vendors and precious quest-givers) lay bleeding at my feet. The pace of the quests is quite fun and exciting, and really drives the game to a completely new action RPG feel.
