  Jumping on this once split-screen is patched in. Loved Return of the King on the Cube!

  The original Dark Alliance was my favorite game for a long time. This was a day 1 buy for me, but I’m waiting for my buddy to get his copy so we can play together!

  Just like the original, gotta play with someone else!

  Didn’t know this will get Splitscreen. Definitely a reason to consider. I’d love a d&d game on PlayStation that gives pen&paper players campaigns to play through as well as as a make your own tale system where the dungeonmaster has a wide range of prefabricated and editable game elements. The choice to swap between turn based or action oriented would be nice too. You got similar systems like that for PC, but a really fleshed out one for PlayStation would be amazing!

  Bought this on an impulse without knowing anything about it, besides third person fantasy – and am loving it. I saw some bad reviews online but if you take it as a cheap (£30) button mash dungeon crawler then its great. Really nice graphics on ps5, very smooth, and feels similar to God of War in terms of combat. Only played solo so far, the elf and the dwarf – very different styles of play, one fast and stabby, one slow and hammer smashy- both enjoyable. Not overly challenge, but after a day at work it’s a welcome brain reset game.

  Not sure if this has been fixed yet, but when I played the game, cross gen play was unavailable.

  Love the world, but I’m waiting for a deep sale. Way too many issues that need fixing. It is sad, as I love to play games in worlds that I have read books from.

  Nothing about enemy AI? Nearly every other review I’ve come across mentions enemies that will basically stand dumbfounded until dead, especially dinging them from a mild distance with Cattie-Brie, even resuming conversations between arrow strikes.

  I’m confused. Many have reported massive performance issues with this game. Runs smoothly?!

  Been playing on GamePass. It’s no masterpiece but fun enough for a hack n slash fix. Not sure about PS5 but runs smoothly on my Series X.

  A very nice game from a small studio, it has some issues that must be fixed but overal it will give you a good time with a good multiplayer. Didn’t know it will be patched for split sceen, this is awesome….

  I was expecting this to score lower, as it certainly has the looks of being a bit naff… isn’t loot mostly tied to the endgame, which I hear is just a bit of a slog?

  Enjoyed it much more as a co-op game than Solo. Definitely play it Co-op before passing judgement.

  I did PC GamePass so no risk trying it out (maybe wait for a sale). But I’ll keep it installed for now.

  @Agramonte agreed, solo has some issues with the AI, co op is the way to go till they patched it, from the developers in pach notes they are aware of the AI problem in solo, so a patch will be on the way. I played the game almost 40 ours till now and i only had 1 or 2 disconnects in multiplayer, way better than outriders at the start imo.

  I was so hyped for this game, the trailers and gameplay previews seemed promising…after playing for a bit on gamepass…what a mediocre mess. Seems archaic in almost everything…

  Watch the skillup review on this before buying! It is a buggy buggy buggy mess with some of the worst AI in years.

  Was going to do the $1 3 month trial of Gamepass to play this w/ my kid if either of our old PCs will play it.

  Aren’t PS articles required to complain about this being included on GP or was that a 1 shot since Sony made MLB The Show?

  Played an hour last night and can see why they wanted it on gamepass as this game isn’t going to sell well naturally

  Well this is certainly one of the more generous critiques. This game is being savaged almost across the board; and I think rightly so. Cheaper price point or not, this is a real botch-job of a game. Having it on GP was the perfect opportunity to confirm my worst fears.

  Needs polish but gameplay and loot/progression system is fun and intricate. Online was janky and enemies would bounce around. Will wait for some updates and jump back in with some friends.

  Somehow, Stuart Gipp was a reporter for World Weekly News in his past life and is a complete embarrassment to video game journalists everywhere. D & D DA is a complete debacle and buggier than a mosquito convention. Exactly what game was you playing or did you even play the game?

  @rjejr well yesterday the internet collectively took the piss out of Sony fanboys moaning about gamepass so maybe they’ve not yet recovered…

  £1 for 3 months though…

  … You’ve got to love PushSquare’s reviews.. for games getting 4 or below they give 7, for games that are 7+, they get 4s.. I’ve never known such a consistently inconsistent review site.. brilliant stuff!

  Wow a 7!? LOL Didn’t see that coming! That’s really generous. I did not enjoy this at all, but to each their own I guess.

  @Bleachedsmiles those fanboys that preach about GamePass every single time aren’t any better, so spared me the BS. And look, here you are doing the same (joke or not, you are still promoting the damn thing). I’m sure MS is glad to see guys like yourself promoting their services for free.

  @Bleachedsmiles I noticed GP making the rounds on twitter yesterday but I didn’t really get into it.

  Played this game on Gamepass the other day. It’s not bad but feels very unpolished. Combat feels stiff and the camera movement is something I expect from a PS2 game. In fact the game just felt like a rough PS2 game. It’s not bad but definitely could use some more development time.

  The game is broken trash, watch Skill Up’s review on youtube. How this gets a 7 on here lmao.

  Everyone complaining that this got a 7 should remember that this is an opinion!

  hey guys is the game enjoyable in solo as i intend to play it on my own? I’m so interested in this one but i fear it’s too hard or difficult to play solo as it was designed for co-op?

  @Tatarimokke DO NOT play this game solo. It is a miserable experience. I tried it for a couple hours and wanted to cry. I can barely recommend this game at all but if you really want to give it a go, please do it in multiplayer. Even basic mobs are literal sponges.

  Morning all, firstly I know reviews are a matter of opinion and everyone likes different things…..HOWEVER I have played this on Game Pass and its a complete mess. Terrible AI, bugs, just so many things wrong with it. Just be warned, watch the Skill Up/ACG reviews for a good summary.

  @suikoden nooooo… I simply take their reviews as a complete opposite – so this game is an ‘avoid’ for me (and I should know I have it on Game Pass and it’s so full of bugs…) I mean BUGS… LOTS OF BUGS… and it’s BLAND… oh God, it’s BLAND… you’ve seen everything you need to see after about 30 minutes… rinse and repeat… but of course in the PushSquare world this warrants a 7!!! xD (meanwhile in the rest of the world it’s getting SLAMMED)

  @OneManDroid

  as said in my other post i played it on gamepass and i felt ripped off!

  i agree its getting more and more commmon with push square and even nintendo life that scores are completely out of whack.

  certain reviewers whom i know if they hate a game i will like it and if they like it, it will be trash.

  @rpg2000 I’m sure they are. But value should be applauded. On the other hand I’m sure Sony are delighted every time a fanboy defends £70 games. I know I’d much rather Sony take notice of Gamepass trending than a defence for a price hike.

  Either way, the joke only works if the setups there…Sony fanboys wearing their tin foil hats claiming conspiracy over everyone who praises gamepass being in Microsofts pocket was the perfect set up…and now you’re mad that it’s free advertising. Just like singing loud and proud that Xbox has no games…then crying when they buy studios and have exclusives. They make themselves the punchline.

  @rpg2000 damn calmate, are you really calling someone a fanboy for liking gamepass.

  @Lyonjak those are 2 great review channels, truly worth a recommendation.

  @AFCC I don’t know which gameplay vids you’ve watched but I figured this would be what it turned out to be after seeing some of IGN’s videos about it, given that you can’t really trust them regarding difficulty. But still the AI is just plain broke. Glad it’s a gamepass game so they got the money they needed to perhaps make a better game next time around, but I know for a fact that I wouldn’t have played it else.

  @Cherip-the-Ripper I dunno I saw it on youtube but it wasn’t IGN for sure.
