Accessible yet challenging.
Compelling sense of progression.
Good balance of nostalgia and modern design.
Randomized character traits add diversity and a silly appeal.
Progeny approach to the dying a lot aspect of roguelikes is brilliant.
Solid platforming action.
Sense of humor.
Exploring is fun.
No real variety in melee weaponry.
Some may be turned off by the high level of difficulty early game.
Character designs look too similar.

This combination - and some wonderful detailing in the enemy design - ultimately saves the whole thing from that sense of emptiness that can set in during the middle of a loot-grinding adventure where you feel you've seen a good proportion of what the game offers and now you're just trying to raise your stats and plough on to the end.80

With no fat on its bones but plenty of wit and tons of variety despite its simple nature, Rogue Legacy is an apparently effortless combo of platforming and role-playing.80

Even when its bosses lay defeated, the game continues to heap tons of gameplay onto your PC with a more difficult New Game Plus mode and more secrets to find. It's no wonder why so many generations of heroes spent years exploring this castle, because it's easily worth you spending many hours with it.85

Despite the occasional control annoyance and underdeveloped trait system, this is a fantastic game that I am going to spend many more hours with to continue building my legacy.87

If you miss the old simple style of gameplay and just want to have fun for a few hours with a challenging yet simple game with a great sense of progress for both short and long gameplay sessions. This is the game for you.75

When we write the narratives of our own lives, one natural inclination is to view it as a story with a concrete beginning and end. Legacy is a compelling exploration of what happens when we add a “To Be Continued…” after the final act.80

You really can’t afford to not pick up this unbelievable package, I also highly recommend picking up the soundtrack because it is also well worth it.90

Rogue Legacy can be an addictive game, with FTL a distant cousin in terms of overall experience, and although I have seen about 90 characters die before my eyes, I still have more castle secrets to uncover.80

Rogue Legacy passer definitivt ikke for alle, og jeg vil ikke anbefale det til spillere som blir fort frustrerte. Dersom du er ute etter en utfordring er dette perfekt.90

Superbly designed and balanced, this game rides the line of frustration and fun to deliver that one-more-go feel that will have every barbarian king and queen roaring a battle cry, then gearing up to take on that ancient evil one more time.84
