Din's Curse Demon War First Impressions

Rampant Games has posted a Quick Take review of Demon War, the recently released expansion for Soldak Entertainment's action RPG, Din's Curse. Demon War expands the number of class combinations to 196, introduces the new Demon Hunter class, and adds a variety of new creatures, quests, environments and modifiers to the main game.

From the review:

I canít say I fully understand everything going on in the towns after just a few hours of play of Demon War. The end effect has been that the towns are a lot busier and the NPCs play a much bigger role in whatís going on. Iíve seen married townsfolk get divorces, get so hungry or destitute that they start stealing from other NPCs. Iíve even had one woman in town become so grieved over the death of a loved one (even though I avenged the murder) that she turn traitor, poisoned the water supply (spiking the cost of water & drink in town), and when discovered fled into the dungeon to join forces with the bad guys. And then I was sent to go kill her. All in a dayís work.

You have a lot more options to interact with the NPCs, including donating money to them, inspecting their gear, and challenging them to a fight (I havenít tried that one yetÖ I only fight them when they turn hostile). Iíve explored some of their dialog a little more, as it seems their dialog gives some indication as to their motivations and state. The game can get pretty chaotic, so itís hard to keep track of what everyone is doing in town. But you can see the NPCs now walking around doing their activities. Apparently some of the more adventurous types, if they decide you arenít doing enough, may take up sword and armor and head down into the dungeon to complete your quests for you!
