The new game Dungeons from Kalypso Media starts in a pretty intriguing way — you are an all powerful Dungeon Lord named Deimos and have a powerful demoness, Calypso, as your girlfriend. Of course, demons being demons, she betrays you, takes over your...

From a game design viewpoint, nostalgia can be a tricky needle to thread. By paying homage to a classic title, games can combine those grand old memories with fresh new ideas to create truly enjoyable experiences. Or, if the title fails to live up to...

It's no big secret that Dungeons was marketed as the heir apparent to the Dungeon Keeper series. The look of the game in screenshots, the trailers and even the taglines ("Be Evil and Feel Good" vs. "Evil is Good") are so similar, it's hard not to...

Dungeons allows players to create their own personal hell, fill it full of do-gooders, and torture them. You will find a game that plays like a couple of great gaming franchises rolled into one, but the package is very enjoyable. Good graphics and...

Dungeons is a fun but deceptively shallow Sim-RPG-thing that would have benefitted from pushing the envelope for either genre a little more. The creativity of its premise is never fully fleshed out but offers moments of genuinely unique fun. Although...

There once was a time when geeks like us got all giggly and hot-and-bothered by the idea of being the villain instead of the hero. Dungeon Keeper accomplished that effect. Then we got Overlord, and most recently Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!...

Dungeons is a good-natured send-up of role-playing games, and a surprisingly enjoyable strategy/RPG hybrid that borrows from both theme park games and hack-and-slash dungeon crawlers.During Dungeons' tutorial, your assistant explains that being a...

Dungeons does have it's shortcomings, as mentioned before the game can get quite repetitive with having your dungeon lord race through the dungeon going after every hero. The game also lacks direct control over the monsters that you place and has...

Dungeons has deliberately made a concerted effort to win over the Dungeon Keeper fan base, but its 'battery farm' style of gameplay and limited control options mean that it ends up being a pale imitation of that milestone game....

If you're a sim or strategy fan Dungeons shouldn't be completely overlooked. It's far from an original premise but a game of this type has been missing from the scene for a decade now and is sorely missed. But consider saving yourself from tarnished...

Some of you reading this review are no doubt fans of Bullfrog’s Dungeon Keeper, a game that even cursory research suggests that Kalypso’s Dungeons is clearly paying homage to. Sadly, I have no experience with that game and can only relate my...

I’ve spent a good amount of my in-game life wandering through caves, crypts, and dungeons full of goblins and ogres and animated skeletons. Why? Well, there’s gold down there – lots of gold. Equipment too. There are swords and shields and mithril...

Before we start, let's make one thing absolutely clear about Dungeons: If you're hoping for another Dungeon Keeper, then you're going to be disappointed. Dungeons is not that game. Oh sure, visually it's got Bullfrog written all over it, and there are...

Вы когда-нибудь хотели почувствовать себя беспощадным тираном? Властелином подземелий и королем тьмы, о котором рассказывают страшные-престрашные сказки, пугая непослушных детей на ночь? В Dungeons вы проделаете долгий путь от хилого изгоя до могучего...

International Review By Eurogamer on 30

Som brugere af Eurogamer's forum vil have opdaget, er jeg stor fan a Peter Molyneux. Udvikleren, der med sit firma Bullfrog stod bag en række opfindsomme udgivelser tilbage i halvfemserne, står for mig som lidt af et geni, og har med sin idé rigdom...
