Honest Gamers writes: "Even though I love dungeoncrawlers, I was initially skeptical. I thought The Dark Spire was just going to be a quick time-killer until the next big thing. However, contrary to word-of-mouth, this isn't a Wizardry-style journey. It certainly pays homage to its legendary predecessor, but its wicked sense of humor and creepy atmosphere lend the adventure a personality all its own. The Dark Spire is an artistic, engrossing RPG that achieves immersion via intense exploration, puzzle-solving, and surprisingly addictive level-grinding. It's an experience, but more importantly, it is game".
