"Despite its rough edges, The Dark Lord is a welcome continuation of the series, and the entertaining gameplay has been bolstered enough to easily warrant a second attempt at becoming the lord of the underworld." [ - Worth Playing ]
Dungeons: The Dark Lord is the sequel to Dungeons, the game where the more evil you are, the better! There are a slew of exciting new features, including four-player multiplayer in four modes! Along with the addition of multiplayer modes such as Deathmatch and King of the Hill, there’s now the ability to play as some of the game’s popular bosses (Minos, The Dungeon Lord, the Zombie King and more) in multiplayer, along with the addition of an extensive single-player campaign, a new dungeon setting and 25 new prestige gimmicks.
Four multiplayer modes for up to four players: Deathmatch, King of the Hill, Piñata and Survival
Entirely new, fully scripted and voiced single-player campaign
New dungeon setting (ice crystal cave) with new graphics, unique prestige gimmicks and a new boss monster
Playable bosses in multiplayer modes (Minos, Zombie King, Calypso and Dungeon Lord)
Various dungeon graphics sets and inventories are now available
New set of skills specifically for multiplayer modes
I'm not a big fan of the Dungeon series. They feel like graphically impressive but otherwise shallow Dungeon Keeper games. But this middle child has a lot more depth and creativity than the two main games. The multiplayer modes are entertaining, the game still looks amazing, the bosses are challenging but fun, and it's just fun to play. It won't blow your mind, but it's worthwhile.
