Depths of Peril - Review @ Games Radar

by Dhruin, 2008-05-07 00:36:57

A Kieren Gillen review of Depths of Peril from PC Gamer UK has been reprinted at Games Radar.  This is probably the biggest coverage the game has seen and with a score of 8/10, should generate some interest:

Oh, and those quests? They’re generated by the world too, and the Covenants’ successes and failures feed back into them. A monstrous hero arises in the wasteland. There’s a quest to kill him. If no one does, he may gather a band of monsters to him. And then he leads to an uprising, leading to more baddies in the area. If left untouched for long enough, they’re going to storm the village. NPCs can be captured and kidnapped - generating more quests and... well, it’s Diablo meets STALKER - and that’s a STALKER that’s far more alive than GSC’s world ended up being. If you win, you can generate a whole new world for your tougher party to have a crack at.

...and Kieron fleshes out the article with more comments at Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
