Reviews for Dungeons: Gold Edition

A questionable clone, a mini-cousin, instead of mini-me.

This review is based on the experience of the game, and not a comparison to it's supposed inspiration, the legendary Dungeon Keeper series. As mentioned in the title, the game is a questionable cousin to Dungeon Keeper, at least once removed, at best. While the spirit leans close to it's inspiration, the direction takes it to another family tree. While the game bases itself on being an RTS/RPG, it in truth is a 95% RPG with a very small sliver of RTS components. The amount of dungeon micromanaging is left to placing 'summoning circles' for beasts, and setting up an incredibly small pool of rooms, consisting of furniture you place directly into the dungeon. The room-building is bland at best. The remainder of the micromanaging goes to decorating the halls with lamps and decorations, used to raise various atmosphere levels. The main part of the game, the RPG component is devoted to drawing in heroes and getting them lost in your lair by pulling them in with monsters, leaving them alive as long as possible in order to max-out their enjoyment and bring it to a climax, when you can butcher them in order to squeeze it out of them like juice. A very interesting idea, but the execution causes it to fall as flat as Marie Antoinette's heart-rate after the guillotine. The game is like a cologne-sniffing card at a shopping mall. You can take it and rub it on you, but you are going to walk away wanting more of the original. If you are on the market for a dungeon-crawling RPG with a role-reversal, this is the game for you. If you crave a Dungeon Keeper remake, you'd better delve deeper into the halls.

Game isnt terrible

This game is often mistaken as a possible sequel to the well loved Dungeon Keeper games, although I can say that it has its similarities, but this game is substantially different. Instead of keeping a dungeon full of creatures, you need to lure heroes into your Dungeon, and keep them happy, then use your minions to kill them..The happier the hero when they die, the better rewards you reap.

This game is set at quite a fair price, it definitely doesn't compare to other games in it's genre, but it still isn't the worst.

Not bad

In the first look, this game resembles the famous classic Dungeon Keeper, but it is very different, maybe this can be disappointment but the game is still fun, the goal is prepare traps to kill the heroes that enter to your dungeon, you have many ways to do and in every level the difficulty will increase, also the maps are varied to avoid repetition.

This gold edition offers all the content from the original game and the expansion, so you can play the full experience, for this price is a very good deal if you want to try something different in a RTS.
