So basically just play Hades if co-op isn't important.

So in my opinion this game is a lot of fun especially with a friend you can play Co-Op with. I agree that there is currently not endless potential for replayability however what do you expect from a 10€ game (currently on Sale). For now I had 8 hours of fun with a friend and we managed to play through this game atleast twice.

Same here, but If i’d paid retail and not got it in the humble bundle i’d be disappointed on the lack of content for price

Paid 9 euros for this during the sale, and i feel like i should have paid 5 or less. Moment to moment gameplay isn't great, replay value is meh, can't be played solo and the ai is, of course, trash. Gameplay wise It feels like they wanted to make something like diablo but also a moba, and failed at both in the process. It looks nice, but too much work has to be done to make it good, not impossible, but i'm not holding my breath for it. Wouldn't buy again if i could go back. Not in its current state anyway.

If only this was a review in 3 minutes, not 11 seconds of completely redundant intros, a review, and 18 seconds of credits and end cards in 3 minutes.

Been following the 3D artist on Artistation. The character models are pretty cool. Kind of shame the gameplay ruins that by having a distant isometric camera.

I think I know whom you're referring to. It's the artist that did fanart for Halo and Marathon, right?

Semi disagree actually. The game has a fairly different feel based on which character you pick. The runs do vary based on which perks you find. Sure the maps don't really change, but content is hardly mapping in a roguelike, it is all about the combat experience. And I absolutely know for certain you didn't put much time into actually playing the game, because, though I am biased because I like it a lot, there is no way you can say the experience doesn't change. Each run is like passing a test, where you unlock the next difficulty level. Of which there are 10. And to state that ascension 4 is not a meaningful change compared to normal is ludicrous. (That's as far as I've gotten in 2 days, I can only imagine how much it changes by ascension 10).The difficulty isn't a flat stat change either, and urges you to pick up other characters, other perks, adopt other playstyles, until you stumble upon an "op" build and it's an absolute blast. I'm not saying the game will never get boring. I'm saying I've had 10 hours of co-op fun for 10 euros(it's 50% off the first week), and I bet there's a good 20 more before I start to feel bored.

@hi im justin I have 230 hours in the game and I'm not bored yet. The aforementioned Ascension difficulty that has been added at full release forces you to think outside of the box to deal with changing problems due to random affixes like -100% resistance on the highest hp survivor or 55% reduced sight so you have to play way more careful because you dont know whats hiding in the shadows (also elite zombies rregenerate health while you cant see them). Just to name a few affixes. Having all of the curiosities unlocked provides you with a lot of options to pick and choose your playstyle. Also... what hes saying about the time to unlock items is simply wrong. IF you are actively looking for chests to open you can get A LOT more than he is claiming here. The amount of dredium ingots you get also scales with difficulty level. I do agree that the boss fight is fairly straight forward. Although that also gets a lot harder on higher Ascension levels when it starts throwing 5 elite revenants + the boss + hordes of normal zombies at you. I'm having a massive blast playing Darksburg.

Once there was "Dead Island: Epidemic" - one can say that Darksburg has similar vibes. The problem with this one is that people are expecting different kind of game. In Darksburg you play on limited number of maps, and indeed tasks are more or less same things over and over, but I'd say that's by design. The games is build around relatively short runs (about 1h - it could be shorter for my taste), jungling around with skill modifications and trying not to die during attempts on harder levels. I mean, it's not game that you play to "complete it", it's more like doing one od two runs from time to time (like casual playing some online game like Dota or Overwatch). You succeed or fail, gain some progress in unlocking passive perks and try again another day.

@Bril Haha that's the correct answer I was falling asleep when I commented idk why the hell I said enter the gungeon

Something like Heroes of Hammerwatch? Would recommend that one as a whole. Otherwise, there's Diablo, Torchlight, Path of Exile. Maybe even Lords of the Fallen. Both Torchlight 1 and 2, as well as Lords of the Fallen, are on sale currently at humblebundle. Path of Exile is free to play. And Diablo 3 has a starter edition that lets you play to the end of Act 1.

Maybe enter the gungeon? Top down coop games are all the rage lately so depends on what you're looking for I guess.

I'm trying to figure out why these are less fun than zero punctuation, I think it's the mild, calm monotone of every one of them, and not enough dick jokes obviously

@mirkinza athnar What is funny is that the 3 minute reviews are actually my second favorite thing on this channel it's just that this reviewer I agree sounds very IGN-y

@mirkinza athnar sure, but I don't think we should encourage others to try to be like Yahtzee. they should go for their own type of fun cuz I feel like any reviewer that looks to be more like Yahtzee is going to end up a shittier copy

Fat discount on 50% right now, so might be worth picking up for 10 dorrarz.

@Kajnake Yea, risk of rain 2 is most likely better, but i've already completed that game, got all achievements and got over 300 hours played, so we gotta find something else.

This game seems like it has a lot of potential. Maybe it was released too early since it seems to suffer from a lack of variety and replayability. Still seems worth checking out at some point, but I'll probably wait for now.
