Review: Sword of the Stars: The Pit is fun, but plays by the rules a little too much - GameZone

GameZone: " Roguelikes such as FTL and The Binding of Isaac manage to encapsulate a lot of the charm that was so prevalent in the genre to begin with. At the same time, these experiences feel fresh because they incorporate gameplay elements that aren’t seen in these types of games too often. FTL is particularly interesting, as it is one of the deepest experiences you could possibly hope for, as far as roguelikes are concerned, thanks to its many gameplay systems. Sword of the Stars: The Pit also relies on micromanagement and varying mechanics to a degree, and while it may not be as robust an experience as the two aforementioned titles, it’s still a lot of fun and deserves to be played by roguelike buffs." (PC, Sword of the Stars: The Pit) 7.5/10
