Review: Legend of Grimrock

25 Apr

As generations of videogame consoles come and go we see vast improvements in many categories: graphics get a huge overhaul, the complexities of gameplay increases, and entire genres are redone to take advantage of each new system’s capabilities. A few casualties are left behind in this transition  like the point-and-click adventure game, 2D platformers, and dungeon crawling role-playing games. However each generation has a select few titles that stubbornly stick to the old formula and emulate the magic of games past, which is the case with Legend of Grimrock for the PC. A difficult, retro style RPG, Legend of Grimrock challenges players to fight for their freedom and escape from Mount Grimrock or be left to rot like countless others.

    This game seems like a wicked throwback. I never played the PC games Legend of Grimrock is aping, but I do enjoy making graph paper maps of similar games.

      Well then I’d say this one is a good one to try for ya. I think I’d get a headache trying to make a map of the game’s levels.
