About this game
- Replay value and creating Skill Builds.
- With an old school Diablo like feel but with a more modern asthetic.
- Sounds just like it says in that you need to survive against waves of enemies, modding can definitely expand on this.
- Open World PVP.
- But eventually the combat of Grim Dawn becomes fast paced and as brutal as the world around you.
- Really satisfying combat, compelling classes and systems, fully realized world, and most importantly, controller support.
- The only other game to do it as well was the original Dark Souls.
- The story is well written, detailed, interesting oh and of course very dark twisted and Grim.
- When I go to sleep at night after playing this game I dream about skill trees and equipment sets.
- The skill trees feel like fun, meaningful upgrades.
- Skills are fun to use and the multiclass system adds additional depth to character creation.
- I play mostly co-op on LAN and it runs smoothly with very little lag.
- The game offers at present 5 different classes, of which you can combine any 2 of them to create hybrid classes.
- The skill system is very in-depth but still easy to understand and the possibilities of different builds are very enormous.
- The spiritual successor of Titan Quest.
- The character progression rivals Path of Exile’s and is better in some aspects.
- The sound effects or combat sound fantastic and the game is really quite large.
- All in all, it’s an interesting universe that manages to put a somewhat new spin on the overused post apocalyptic and dark fantasy settings.
- Though I expect the game to be finished either early or middle of next year – the pace is relatively slow due to having a small team.
- The graphics, sound, abilities, combat, inventory management all fantastic.
- Peep this if you like Diablo 1 and 2, Titan Quest, Baldur’s Gate, or Torchlight 2.
- You can easily tell as most of the UI also looks very similar in both structure and art style as Titan Quest.
- It’s carefully crafted in many ways, without being as limited as diablo 3 yet not as free as sacred 2.
