Gamers Temple on Shadowflare

Gamer's Temple took off their gloves and wrote up a rather painful review of ShadowFlare, the Japanese hack and slasher which is available for download for $14.95 on their website. As implied, the review isn't good at all, saying it's basically a poor man's Diablo and slapping a 62% on it. Well, read for yourself:


While the game has its charm, it is definitely not on par with Diablo or the genre's other leading games. The graphics are a few years behind the times, and there is not a large variety of enemies in the game. The enemy AI is competent enough, but the pathfinding for your hero has some problems. Your character will try to take the direct route to the point you click, even if there is an obstacle in the way. The game is also too challenging at the beginning, mostly because it is impossible to find new weapons and armor early on. Couple this with the fact that you can only save the game while exiting, and you might have to replay the first part of the game a few times.​

Eh.. I debated on wether or not I should bother posting this at all since it sounds like one of those arcade games that calls itself an RPG, but I have a soft spot for the independent developers out there.
