I bought Grim Dawn hoping that it was going to be something like Diablo or Dungeon Siege or maybe even Titan Quest. Turns out that Grim Dawn is better than any of those games. Here’s a few reasons why.
- The loot is better, much much better
- Graphics are excellent
- A lot of thought has been put into the storyline
- Tons of monsters to slay
- The map is huge
- Character progression is phenomenal
Grim Dawn is described as an Action Role Playing Games, it’s also described as a Hack And Slash Looter, but neither of those terms really tell you how good it is.
While it’s true that it’s a hack and slash, it’s so much more than that, mainly because of the great story line and the fantastic character progression. Have a look at the video below for some game play.
As of today over 14,000 people have given the game a positive review on steam, with a lot of people getting over 1000 hours out of the game, before even leaving a review.
Here’s a quick selection of some of the reviews:
- Did you play Diablo 1 & 2 until it was time to catch the bus to school in the morning, and then read the Diablo guidebook during classes? Grim Dawn is for you.
- Game is fantastic. Especially if you love Diablo II
- A hack and slash looter with a pretty good story line, great variety of play styles, and good replay value in difficulty modes and loot generation.
The class system makes for some really different play styles (combos of two classes, distribute points where you like) plus general perks you can choose from as you discover shrines.
Sunk a lot of hours into it so far, looking forward to the expansion.
Personally, what I enjoy about Grim Dawn the most is the character progression and being able to combine any of the six distinct classes to create a new class.
There are hundreds of items skills and you can have over 250 skills which are granted by using items and equipment add-ons. There are hundreds and hundreds of items, some are common, some are rare and some are magical. There are over 20,000 magical combos.
And the great thing is, none of it feels overwhelming.
So far the game includes over 35 quests with a bunch of lore notes added in for good measure, 75 in total. There’s talk of DLC coming out soon, I can’t wait!
