The Chosen - Review @ Worthplaying

Worthplaying has posted their review of Rebelmind's action RPG, The Chosen:Well of Souls, giving the inevitable comparison to Diablo and scoring it at 6.5/10:

The Chosen starts you on the outskirts of the town of Kamienec. The sky is dark, and the weather is rainy. Upon entering the town, a guard almost pops one into you — with an old-school musket, of course — while rambling about you being a demon spy, insisting you can shape-shift. Now is probably the best time to point out that The Chosen hired what seems to be the worse voice actors humanly possible...

    ...This brings us to the combat system of The Chosen. There is the typical bird's-eye view of your character, as well as a fixed camera on your position. Left-clicking somewhere will move you to that point, and left-clicking an enemy will attack him with your weapon, whether it's a sword or gun. Despite how simple it may be, the battle system has proven to be rather addictive throughout the years, in games like Diablo, Titan Quest and many more. On top of using the left mouse button as your main attack — you could complete the entire game running around and left-clicking — you can assign certain abilities to the right mouse button, such as the fireball spell for Monks. 

The Chosen: Well of Souls has simply been done better many times before. The game was very easy, thanks to the ability to click the B key to teleport back to the society headquarters, even when you're in danger...On the bright side, the game only costs $20, so it's easily worth the price of admission. If you're looking for a lesser-known RPG, or you're a huge fan of the action-RPG genre, pick up The Chosen: Well of Souls and enjoy a few hours of fun ... before the tedium sets in.
