<A href="http://pc.gamezone.com">GameZone</a> has posted <a href="http://pc.gamezone.com/gzreviews/r21419.htm">their review</a> of <a href="http://www.dungeonlords.com">Dungeon Lords</a>. They gave it <b>7.6</b> on their <b>10 point</b> scale.
<br>
<blockquote>The combination of customizable character advancement and creation, involving dungeons, and the variety of combat available to players makes Dungeon Lords a breath of fresh air into the dungeon-crawl genre. The fast-paced combat system is a little different from previous RPG games like Dungeon Lords and it takes a little getting used to. <u>Fans of the FPS genre will find it easy to slip into combat without feeling out of place</u>. Unlike other games that will only appeal to fans of the basic "type," Dungeon Lords will attract the interest of many different styles of gamers. Grab your gear and get ready because the dungeon is waiting. </blockquote>

I just wanted to beat <b>Vault Dweller</b> to pointing out the irony of this versus all the reviews of <a href="http://www.vampire-bloodlines.com">Bloodlines</a>, which has a highly similar combat system.

Let me see.. Dungeon Lords is a combat focused RPG, and you just said it's combat sucks. *fart* I'll pass.

At least that site didn't mark Bloodlines down and then give Dung Lords a high score.

maybe the reviewers at gamezone didn't have a hot topic or otherwise weren't able to be goth's in high school so now they hate vampire games. Or they could have just known some faggy ass vampyre larpers.

I do not think so.


"Bloodlines, which has a highly similar combat system."

There is no similarity. (except it is real-time)
