I tried out a new game called "Din's Curse" for the Mac/PC. I haven't totally finished it yet, but it's interesting. You choose your class, and go on quests for townspeople and the God Din. It's reminiscent of both Diablo and Titan Quest.
Story: The story isn't all that great. You just have to keep on doing quests to rebuild your reputation as a good person because you weren't very nice in your previous life. It's not very interesting. 5/10
Graphics/MusicThe graphics are pretty good. They're what you might expect out of a game like Warcraft. The music is nothing special. The places sound like dungeons, there are spooky noises, weird monster sounds. 7/10
World: The world is very interactive- you can cause cave ins in dungeons, people will actually die, monsters can attack and destroy the town that you're in and people come and go as they please. Money comes in three forms: Copper Pieces (CP), Silver Pieces (SP) and Gold Pieces (GP). 100 CP = 1 SP, 100 SP = 1 GP. It's simple to learn, and similar to Dungeons and Dragons money. The things that you find in the dungeons sometimes need to be identified. Your armour needs to be repaired. That's similar to Diablo. 9/10
Controls/Gameplay:The controls are easy to learn: Attack with a click, use hotkeys for skills, etc.
The quests are somewhat repetitive: Go kill the monster, fetch this, kill so many people on level 5 of the dungeon, etc. They provide some fun.
The class selection part of the game is really cool. You can choose to become a weapon specialist, a wizard, etc, or you can choose to be a hybrid. (This part really reminds me pf TQ.) The skill trees are neat- you can get any skill at any time regardless of level, as long as you can pay for it. Skills cost both Skill Points and Money. I didn't like that.
There are also different modes of play, such as Poverty, Honourable Death, etc. These make things harder for the hero. The hero can be male or female. The places that you travel to are randomly generated, so you won't go to the same place twice. 9.5/10
I would recommend that you try this game before you buy it to see if you like it. The game is enjoyable to play. Some parts are humourous, while others are just a bit boring. Click here to go to the website to take a closer look at it.
