Hard4Games Review: Legend of Grimrock

Inspired by classic dungeon-crawls such as Might & Magic, Eye of the Beholder, and Ultima Underworld, Legend of Grimrock is a rare occurrence in today’s gaming market. In an era of gaming saturated by auto-aiming, mass-looting, cinematic elements, and cheesy writing attempts to become the next Planescape Torment, Legend of Grimrock just shrugs and provides a fun dungeon-crawl without hand-holding. Modern-gaming needed a game of this intricacy in order to remind players how to stretch those brain muscles in ways that the average game hasn’t in recent memory—just when you might have thought that Portal wouldn’t see any competition in puzzle-designs. This, ladies and gentle-gamers, is how you design a game that utilizes a combination of role-playing, puzzles, action, and looting. (Legend of Grimrock, PC) -

Played this for about 6 hours now. It's very hard to put down as you just want to know what's around the next corner, and the next... Some very cool puzzles and I really like the combat too.
