Darkest Dungeon is a captivating roguelike oozing with gothic atmosphere. Its art style is evocative and its animation is fluid. The game mechanics are deep and engaging, with meaningful decisions to make at every turn. The sound design is immersive and effectively sets the tone, ranging from eerie silences to bone-chilling screeches.

Hard but super fun. The visuals are amazing to look at and the characters are all equally unique and cool.

Can be frustratingly hard at times but that can also make it super rewarding when you make it.

Not your typical dungeon crawler. I've had around 200 hours on this game and i've never been so addicted. Though it's mostly for people who want a punishing challenge, I've also had fun playing casually.
  • Great immersive game.
  • grim aesthetic and unique art work
  • challenging bosses and punishing system
  • Not good for those who rage easily
Great game, I have a lot of fun with it. It has an interesting story, unusual graphics, great pool of characters and creative gameplay. Although there aren't many different areas, they don't bore. I recommend the game.

Very addictive and fun to play. If you find yourself overly frustrated, remember you can always even the odds with some handy text file editing. At the end of the day as long as it's single player and not hurting anyone, having fun is up to however you want to tailor your own experience.

  • No microtransactions

  • Can be frustrating at times depending on RNG
I wont waste time saying that you should buy this game for what reasons, because you already know, This game is not for all players for a LOT of reasons: repetitive, art style or too hard; but thats ok because the game is supposed to be like that. Its a roguelike game where you work your way to the end trying to make the best out of the worst situations, a way to maybe make you like more the game is to search in the internet for the background story of each character and then maybe you will be more attached to the game.

OR SIMPLELY USE MODS FROM THE WORKSHOP!
  • Roguelike
  • Shady comic art style
  • Narrator makes everything great
  • repetitive
cant stop playing it, something that ive been waiting for such a long time, its not a typical rpg, but definitely you will like it ! Very good quality product for a reasonable price. A must for rpg fans!
  • innovative
  • sound
  • a bit old graphics
DD is an old school turn-based RPG that gives you thrilling vibes. The stress system changes your perception of adventurers going on suicide mission. Plus, you enter different dungeons rogue-like generated. I recommand only for those who like that kind of game.
  • Roguelike
  • Can be repetitive for some
La verdad que es para mi gusto uno de los mejores juegos de mazmorras por turnos que he visto, una estética exquisita, un sistema de turnos y posiciones acorde y muy táctico y un control del nivel de peligrosidad sublime, es cruel y precioso a la vez.
  • Una atmósfera bestial
  • Por turnos y con muchas horas de juego
  • Toques de humor muy bien enlazados
  • Poco inventario
love this game a ton its really great and is worth dumping a bit of money on to just grind and grind.
watch out for the wicked tough backlash from overconfidence though

loool

boss creatures just sneaking around in the dark

Gioco veramente interessante con una grafica e un atmosfera coinvolgente.
Da la possibilità a un ampio numero di risvolti del gameplay e presenta commenti anche divertenti.
Ottimo gioco per chi ama il genere.
  • grafica
  • gameplay
  • in alcuni casi troppo difficoltoso
This game is just awesome. Really punitive but like they say: "Make the better of a bad situation". Cute graphics, cool gameplay and last long enough.

So this game is really worth the price, even more if it's in promotion. (Like always on this site btw)
  • Gameplay
  • Graphics
  • Confidence surges as the ennemy crumbles
  • No capslock on french language? :D
Addictive like hell, but probably the best game I played in a long time.
It is hardcore and you will be frustrated a lot but I come back all the time.
And funnily although on the surface it seems very repetitive, I enjoy EVERY SINGLE minute playing it!
  • Everything
  • I have no more life
Un roguelike RPG davvero coinvolgente, con un comparto audio davvero unico ed una difficoltà del gameplay non indifferente. Ottima la gestione del roster eroi... Da giocare assolutamente, sopratutto per gli amanti del genere :)
