Dealspwn.com takes a conflicted but ultimately positive look at Legend Of Grimrock.
Dealspwn writes: " Legend Of Grimrock is a difficult game to score, and in many ways, the number is almost meaningless. Almost Human Games have succeeded perfectly in their remit: to create an authentic old-school dungeon crawler that brings the genre back to life without compromising the difficult, frequently infuriating gameplay in any way. Exceptionally-crafted puzzles and atmospheric visuals make for a compelling experience for those who enjoyed the likes of Dungeon Master back in the day, and players who crave a satisfying challenge in an increasingly patronising era. If you fall into either category, it deserves an immediate purchase.
But for many gamers, Legend Of Grimrock's rampant nostalgia, clunkiness and AI exploits will be a stark reminder of how far RPGs evolved over the late eighties and nineties. Indeed, you'll wonder exactly why we put up with these games in the first place." 8/10
