Din's Curse Reviewed

Fidgit 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.

From the review:

Furthermore, Rotskinner had set up a darkness machine in level three, which limits my visibility. Since this was making it difficult to get around, I had to return to level three and root it out, while more and more powerful assassins attacked the town. Later, an earthquake machine on level seven started causing random damage around the level from falling debris. I had to split my time between making progress on other quests and backtracking to tear down Rotskinner's machines, which affected town as well. And the attacks in town kept getting more powerful. He was slaughtering townsfolk, which hurt my reputation stat, and knocked me backwards from the cool gifts you get when you fill the reputation bar. He even managed to kill the warmaster who had given me quests! I had no way to turn in the quests and free up slots for additional quests until I enlisted the steward's help to rescue a new warmaster from inside the dungeon. I was laboring under a series of cascading failures. Eventually, Katosfalls was lost.

Unlike most games, regardless of the genre, Din's Curse has a dynamic world, even in ways other than what I've discussed above. I'll leave you to discover some of these ways. Each town will be different. When an NPC says do this quick or something might happen, whatever that something is, it will probably happen if you don't do something about it. When an NPC says hurry, he really does mean it. Here is a genuine sense of urgency and stakes. The game world will change depending on when you arrive, what you do, what you don't do, and even what the monsters do. And it's a real thrill to discover those dynamics, leveling up your characters and gathering loot as you go.
