Legend of Grimrock - Reviews @ RPS, TotalBiscuit, Elder Geek

Rock, Paper, Shotgun has a Wot I Think for Grimrock and it seems they really enjoyed it. Looks like Almost Human might have an indie hit on their hands:

But overwhelmingly it’s a superb experience, characters levelling up at a perfect rate, agonising choices about which skill to improve becoming like knife wounds when you struggle to find the right type of weapon – the game is so cleverly sparing in its distribution of everything, so something as simple as finding a mace can feel like a mad victory. And talking of which, there are few games where I’ve felt so elated at figuring out a puzzle that I’ve punched my arms in the air and declared to the house, “I’m so brilliant at games!” Along with all this, it does a splendid job of creating a creepy atmosphere, and a deep sense of weirdness. Also, it understands the need to carry skulls.

There are also video reviews by TotalBiscuit and Elder Geek.
