Darkstone User Reviews
I believe there are a few types of games that come onto the market:
Firstly the guaranteed money earners - big name sequels. They've already done the hard yards and have the budget to improve on their original success - Warcraft 3, Age of Mythology. Then there are new games which are truly innovative, such as The Sims - an idea nobody had thought of before. Then there are the B-class ripoffs of big name games. Since the big boys like Command & Conquer, Diablo and Doom made their mark all those years ago, The majority of games have fallen into this category to some exte...
Darkstone isn't a bad game, it's just that the Playstation port is a bit of a cop-out. When playing Darkstone it is so painfully and conspicuously a *port* that it is impossible to shake the feeling that something isn't quite right with it. It plays like a PC RPG that has been gutted to fit into the console format and all of the things that make RPGs so expansive on the PC were missing in the ported version.
The town you begin the adventure in is lifeless and shallow with only a few stores and virtually no NPC interaction. The world beyond the town is broken up into self-contained areas eac...
Blizzard's 1997 smash PC hit Diablo took the gaming community by storm, creating one of the most popular game franchises of all time. In an effort to cash in on the success of the Diablo formula, Delphine Software Interactive has released Darkstone for the PlayStation. While it may not have originally been planned for the bargain bin, Darkstone has a retail price of just under $10, making what would otherwise be an unremarkable title reasonably attractive to prospective game shoppers.
Most good RPGs have a strong foundation in character generation and advancement. Darkstone lets you take on ...
Great replay value, multiple character classes, unlockable bonus features, excellent music and sound.The bad:
Even though I like to refer to Darkstone as "Poor Man's Diablo", it's nevertheless a very fun and addictive game.
Darkstone allows for RPG-caliber gameplay time, because players won't be finishing this game in a week before they forget about it. With the wide array of missions and difficulty levels, it promises more entertainment value than the ten dollars most people have probably spent on it from the Bargain Bin.
The music is well-composed, and doesn't end up getting on your nerves because it's actually instrumental and atmospheric as opposed to the irritating twang of synthesized back...
A challenging RPG/Adventure game, that's for sure! The battle plan is a no brainer, but it makes that up for being difficult. To master Dark Stone, you will have to level up a lot, because bosses aren't what I would exactly call easy.The bad:
The voice acting is obnoxious. The limitations to item holding. The amount of memory blocks Dark Stone takes up. The music is a little flat. And the sound effects aren't the best either.Summary:
But let's face the facts. Dark Stone isn't a bad game at all, and it is worthy of an RPG/Adventure game. Sure, it won't revolutionalize the way games are, but it is a game RPG fans should look into. Also, this game will probably only speak to the hardcore RPG gamers. Still, if you are interested, it doesn't hurt to check it out.
