Din's Curse Reviewed

The Netbook Gamer 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.

From the review:

Two things about quests take this game from just an average action-oriented dungeon romp and turn it into one of my favorite and most-played games so far this year: the sheer amount of quests, and the consequences linked to just about every one.
When you enter town, you will meet up with Din, and there are also a number of other main characters such as the warmaster, alchemist, and others who will give you quests. These can be to gather items, quell an uprising, seek revenge for a misdeed, or even rescue someone trapped below.
You have limits on how many quests you can take at once, which is actually a good thing Ö let me explain. Soldak has created a living world in Dinís Curse, meaning it exists whether or not you are actively doing anything. So unlike shooter games where a low-level enemyís entire existence consists of waiting inside a small room for you to arrive and kill him, in Dinís Curse that boss monster getting riled up on Level 6 of the dungeon gets more and more angry and agitated the longer he is there surrounded by his minions.
In most games you load up on quests and take them on as a matter of convenience, but in Dinís Curse if you are picking herbs for the alchemist after the warmaster told you about that uprising on Level 6, you will eventually start getting in-game messages that the uprising has erupted on Level 6 and that a town attack is imminent. If you still donít heed this message and just think ĎIíll just finish collecting these herbs then go save the towní, chances are half the town will be lying dead by the time you reach the surface Ė possibly even the alchemist who requested the herbs!
