Legend of Grimrock Review | lvl30.com

When a player is asked about the classic “dungeon crawl” genre, they may have to take a visit to their attic and dust off some floppy discs. When it comes to the modern day dungeon crawl, it exists as a blended genre, usually with an action-RPG. The merging of both of these worlds can create a noxious experience that is awkwardly given with the label “game.”

Legends of Grimrock attempts to blur the line between classic and modern with its old-school feel and its modern graphics. That leaves one to wonder if Legends of Grimrock up to the challenge of attracting players that aren’t just around for the sweet taste of nostalgia. (Legend of Grimrock, PC) 7.5/10

I really enjoyed this game personally, definitely more than an 7.5. Then again, I'm probably also trapped in the past when it comes to these games.

I'm probably going to buy this game this week. Looks really good.

I think the game has great nostalgia factor. I enjoyed playing every minute of it. I am glad to see a classic dungeon crawler brought back and I think the developers did a good job with the game. Just a few bumps that they could make changes for to easily jump this game to an 8.5 or 9
