Über das Spiel

Darkest Dungeon ist ein anspruchsvolles, rundenbasiertes Gothic-Rollenspiel mit Roguelike-Elementen, bei dem es um die psychologischen Belastungen bei Abenteuern geht.

Rekrutiere und trainiere eine Gruppe zusammengewürfelter Helden und führe sie durch düstere Wälder, vergessene Labyrinthe, Gruftruinen und mehr. Dabei musst du dich nicht nur unvorstellbaren Gegnern stellen, sondern dich auch mit Stress, Hunger, Seuchen und der allgegenwärtigen Dunkelheit auseinandersetzen. Entdecke rätselhafte Geheimnisse und lass deine Helden in einem innovativen, strategischen, rundenbasierten Kampfsystem gegen eine Vielfalt furchterregender Monster antreten.

  • Das Qualensystem – Du kämpfst nicht nur gegen Monster, sondern gegen Stress, Paranoia, Masochismus, Angst, Wahn und viele andere Ticks, die sich auf das Spiel auswirken!
  • Einzigartige, von Hand gezeichnete Grafiken im Federkielstil.
  • Innovative, rundenbasierte Kämpfe gegen eine Vielzahl teuflischer Monster.
  • Vierzehn (Tendenz steigend!) spielbare Heldenklassen, darunter Seuchendoktorin, Barbarin und der Aussätzige!
  • Lagere, um Wunden zu heilen oder motivierende Reden zu schwingen.
  • Schicke deine erschöpften, kriegsneurotischen Charaktere in die Dorftaverne oder ins Kloster, damit sie sich von der Anspannung und den Strapazen erholen können.
  • Klassische Funktionen von Computer-Rollenspielen und Roguelikes – darunter eine sinnvolle Permadeath-Funktion, prozedural generierte Dungeons und ein unglaublich hoher Wiederspielwert.

Darkest Dungeon ist ein 2D Dungeon Crawler mit einem exorbitant hohen Schwierigkeitsgrad.

Man führt eine Gruppe von Abenteurern in thematisch verschiedene Arten von Dungeons um die dortigen Monster oder Banditen zu besiegen und am Ende die Bossgegner der Dungeons zu erledigen. Dabei sammelt man neue Ausrüstung und Erfahrung um die Abenteurer zu verbessern.

Die Abenteurer gliedern sich dabei in viele verschiedene Klassen auf, welche alle über einzigartige Fähigkeiten verfügen. Dadurch bekommt das Spiel eine taktische Tiefe, die richtige Kombination kann über Sieg oder Niederlage entscheiden, und Niederlagen sind ein großer Teil des Spiels. Man wird schnell von der Übermacht an Gegnern überrannt und die Abenteuere sterben gerade am Anfang wie die Fliegen.

Der Startpunkt der Abenteuer ist ein Dorf, welches man nach und nach ausbauen kann um z.B. neue Fähigkeiten für die Abenteurer zu entwickeln oder diesen Möglichkeiten zur Entspannung zur Verfügung zu stellen. Diese sind auch sehr notwendig, das Spiel enthält nämlich eine Stressmechanik, je verstörender die Geschehnisse für die Abenteuer sind, desto höher ist der Stress. Ist er zu hoch können die Abenteurer durchdrehen und Psychosen bekommen.

Die ganze Atmosphäre ist sehr dunkel und brutal gehalten, man bekommt ein Gefühl der Aussichtslosigkeit der eigenen Anstrengungen während man von Raum zu Raum wandert und nur darauf hofft nicht in Stücke gerissen zu werden.

Zusammenfassend:

*Pro*

Grafik: Schöne 2D Grafik mit viel Liebe zum Detail, auch das Charakter- und Monsterdesign ist stimmig

Musik: Atmosphärisch und stimmig für die jeweilige Umgebung

Spielmechanik: Viel Auswahl an Charakteren, taktische Tiefe und viele Fähigkeiten.

Kampfsystem: Rundenbasiert mit genug Zeit für strategische Entscheidungen.

Preis-Leistung: Für das Geld bekommt man viel Spiel.


*Contra*

Schwierigkeitsgrad: Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist sehr hoch, was gerade den Einstieg frustrierend macht.

Spielsystem: Das Spiel ist sehr repetitiv, man macht im Grunde immer und immer wieder das gleiche.

Zusammenfassend ein sehr spannendes und forderndes Spiel, welches Langzeitspaß liefert, wenn man mal den Kniff raus hat.

Read carefully as im gonna make an effort the first time to write a long review because this game deserves it and there are no words for it so lets get started.

First of all i wanna say i never played any game like this or was into games like this, had multiples friends that owned this game with lots of hours on it so i got interested.

Im the Type of guy that buys games, installed them straight away but some or most i play later when i got time or more into it and so was it with DD. I bought it and installed it but didnt touch it for a while coz on some games im always going like this try em out befor bed for like and hour and if i like it ill keep playing it and if i dont i will deintall or play them even later. So there was an evening where i said im gonna try out DD for like couple of mins or max and hour to see how it is and how it goes and man was that a mistake. It was 1am and instead of trying it out for a short time i ended up playing it for like 5 hours straight till 6 am coz this game sucked me in and really got me hooked.

Let me tell you what i love most, the game itself looks nice, all the different weapons and Items, all the different heroes you can choose, how you can Upgrade your Village and the love hate relationship with the RNG.

RNG is a bitch in this game but thats what makes it most interesting coz on one hand u wanna plan shit and go on tactical but on the other hand u gotta be sometimes making quick decisions or go parkour or just pure luck. I know there is DD 2 on the way and i read all the comments and discussions on the forums from the Cry babies that complain RNG is not fair and too hard and they shouldnt do it like that in DD 2.

I HOPE THEY IGNORE ALL THE CRY BABIES THAT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE RNG AND KEEP IT EXACTLY LIKE THAT IN DD 2.

And last this game is worth owning anywhere. My Girlfriend got a Nintendo Switch and she bought me DD on there so i can play it anywhere now. This game is so much worth buying

and

for all that are easy triggered, got no nervs to get wiped, start over, losing heroes etc go ahead and still buy it u might take some breaks inbetween, u might delete some gamefiles and start over again but you will come back and back and back and back.

This game tortured my soul, face and mental state, keyboard and my neighbours wish for a quiet surrounding. This game comes with a high difficult and challenging concept. The moment you get greedy or overly confident is the moment the game punishs you with a couple of critical hits in a row, misses from your party or just some random encounters which seals your demise. I deinstalled this game 4 times and played it on playstation, ps vita and PC. The lovely game design and art pulled me back back everytime. Especially when the reward of success is so good. But once again, when you get too comfortable, the game will punish you. I wasted 1 keyboard and a good relationship to my neighbours while raging about an supposed easy win, which got spoiled by an unfair parade of critical strikes and lost my entire squad who I personalized with names and outfit. I was so happy to finally finished this and I will not come back for another 3 years until i grave more suffering.

You can absolutely entirely utterly annihilate everything with your best party
and it can be other way around too
RNG in this game can just sent your best party into oblivion at any given moment

if you think your party is in bad shape and shouldn't go on just retreat
it's better to fail the quest than get your team wipe out and lost everything

This game isn't fair at some point but hey .... it's just like real life

R.I.P
-Legend vestal,met their end against a gibbering prophet
(Rookie mistake underestimate prophet damage...)

-Legend vestal,bled out
(enemy crit her 2 times without a chance to heal her ....fricking bullshit)

-Legend vestal,was slain by a vile hag witch
(try to all in and it work but at what cost...)

-Legend Crusader,was slain by a vile Collected Highwayman
(my party was already in bad shape and fail to retreat in the first turn. the rest got out)

A Lovecraft-inspired 2D roguelike dungeon crawler with permadeath and randomized loot.

Darkest Dungeon can run on absolutely any toaster, but thanks to the gorgeous art style it is still very pleasing to the eye.

The game is highly moddable which is why even after all these years it has a very active and helpful modding community.

All in all it's a fantastic game - tough as nails while still being fair, and has quite challenging mechanics while still being pretty easy to pick up. Which you should definitely do - pick it up!

Ruin has come to our family...

You remember our venerable house, opulent and imperial, gazing proudly from its stoic perch above the moor?

I lived all my years in that ancient, rumor-shadowed manor, fattened by decadence and luxury, and yet I began to tire of conventional extravagance.

Singular, unsettling tales suggested the mansion itself was a gateway to some fabulous, unnamable power. With relic and ritual I meant every effort towards the excavation and recovery of those long buried secrets, exhausting what remained of our family fortune on swarthy workmen and sturdy shovels. At last, in the salt-soaked cracks beneath the lowest foundation, we unearthed that damnable portal of antediluvian evil.

Our every step unsettled the ancient earth. Hideous, rotten aggressors assailed us from the shadows. We drew what strength we could from our companionship, but we were in the realm of death and madness! In the end, I alone, fled, laughing and wailing, through those blackened arcades of antiquity, until consciousness failed me...

You remember our venerable house, opulent and imperial? It is a festering abomination! I beg you, return home, claim your birthright, and deliver our family from the ravenous, clutching shadows...

Of the Darkest Dungeon...

This game it has a dark souls feel, You hate it but you love at the same time.
Keep in mind it is RNG game but it's addictive

Story!
Well If you're that gamer that likes rich story telling games this games make a decent job but keep in mind it requires grinding but in my opinion that makes it fun but everyone is different, The story it's not bad at all, I was impressed when I finish it.

I love this game, It's unique but if you have anger issues please don't play it.

A difficult yet fun game, hard to learn initially but once you get the hang of it, it's one of the most rewarding games out there. However it's not for most casual players as even on Radiant mode it's still a very challenging experience, and one that will test how will you deal with stress both irl and and in-game, even for the most experienced players.

CoC is kinda shit tho, don't get it unless you really like the base game, because if you don't the dlc won't do much to help.

Saw there was a free weekend happening. So why the hell not right? See what all the hype's about.

5 hours later I just had to purchase it.

It's a beautifully crafted game, top notch sounds and action. Every dungeon room felt like it could be my last.

But when I made it out of it alive, it felt great. Give it a try! It might just be your cup of tea. I didn't think it would be mine at first, but here I am now.

After a point, the game doesn't give you enough resources to handle both stress and HP management. Sometimes you get stuck in a hole that goes something like this:
- low funds
- lots of stressed heroes
- not enough skills that heal stress
- not enough money to heal all stressed heroes
- need to complete missions to earn money
- barely enough money to fund a mission
- if you don't complete a mission you don't get enough money to heal stressed heroes
- after a point you can't retreat from certain battles and so you lose full teams of heroes
- you lose the dead heroes' trinkets
- you lack the power to complete missions because you can't combat the RNG without good trinkets
- you can't afford to upgrade heroes b/c you lack funds and therefore can't survive missions
- your heroes are stressed
- you are stressed
- you abandon a run after many hours because it's just not fun anymore
- you uninstall the game
- you reinstall the game a few months later
- you repeat the same process

This game can have a real love/hate relationship. At times, it can be enjoyable and entertaining to play. You can overcome dire odds and feel triumphant and accomplished. Or perhaps you formulate the optimal team that can cakewalk through any dungeon without much resistance. Majority, it is an absolute RNG nightmare. Sure, there are numbers, statistics, and other allotted figures that can help pad your attributes for your characters. However, at times, you can raise your party's average dodge over eighty (Gravedigger with 100+) with your foes with severe penalties to accuracy (roughly -30 on all), and quite literally all your people will still get critically hit and brought to Death's Door. Only to be picked off one-by-one via DoT's or enemies with a speed of four outpacing your people with speeds of seven or higher.

My advice: Do not be too invested in the numbers of the game. They truly mean nothing. They are farcical and misleading. If you can come to terms with that (despite them being rather prominent with everything) you should be able to enjoy it.

Hi kids, do you like violence?
Do you consider yourself masochistic?
Do you strive toward making bad mistakes and blaming God (or RNG Jesus) for it?
Have you ever found yourself in an abyss only to know desperation waits for you when you walk out of it?
Did the fleeting sensation of failure haunt you, making you know that no matter what you do, in the end, it will be in vain?

Then may you allow Darkest Dungeon in your life. It will bring all of the above, but it will be fun!

My actual playtime is more than 300h. In this 300+h, I've beaten the game few times, broken 1 keyboard, possibly tried to summon Cthulhu to help me... and I still haven't tried one of DLC expansions (which is not necessary to use this game to its fullest). Yet, I am still here.

Genre of the game says it all.
Rogue-like, Dungeon Crawling, Turn Based, (semi)RPG, strategy. I used to enjoy each of these genres, but little did I know was that one day, they will all be combined into masterpiece. Some will keep pointing fingers on RNG, and they may or may not be right. Sure, there are sometimes some luck-based stuff, but overall, you'll be challenged to go beyond normal strategising ways.

Soundtrack / FX is sometimes bone chilling (literally), Narrator that leads you through your quest will creep into your real life (I often use his quote irl with friends), Lovecraftian beautiful/horrific design.

If you are into this kind of genres, this is a must-have in your library.

p.s. Remember two things.
1) Overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.
2) Never get attached to characters. Its like Game of Thrones, you get attached, they die.

Darkest Dungeon is a game about bringing despair and frustration to us, the player, although luck may help you or instantly destroy you, it is a game where even luck can't beat skill (unless you have a character that has full hp and receive a critical hits that leads to death door then die next turn, then it's just bad luck).
At first, you may think luck helps you win, but after some time and with the right composition, luck is but trivial unless, fate is against you. The music is great, fitting the atmosphere of each location. In any event that leads to a demise of said one, one must know when to cut his loss and learn from it, as more time passes, the less reliant you will be on random crits/deal enough damage to kill an enemy, although it is helpful, knowing what to have and how to beat certain enemy with a flawless victory is the key of this game, only fools will bring a Raw damage team against an enemy that has high damage reduction but low resistance of damage on time.

This game presents a fun challenge to those willing to endure hardship, with a satisfactory payoff.
You will lose heroes, you will lose teams, you will lose, and the autosave function ensures that.
That said, the most insidious mechanic isn't the autosave function; it's the ability to name your heroes that you'll inevitably lose. You won't always lose, so long as you learn from your mistakes and prepare expeditions accordingly; Every expedition hangs on your understanding of mechanics, team composition, and inventory handling. RNG happens, and sometimes bad situations can't be avoided; but they can be mitigated and handled so far as your ability allows them to. The more you play, the better you get, and will complete expeditions into the depth with more ease. Not because it gets easy and doesn't level with yours, but because of your own understanding of the game itself develops.
It's nerve wracking, stressful, challenging and rewarding and if you're about that as much as I am you'll put hours into this game.

I made the mistake of naming all my goons after my friends. I have never experienced such raw emotion before. Please send help. My mind is worn, my body is weary, and my friends are giving me weird looks. They cannot fathom the horrors I have seen them face or the dangers I have seen them escape.

Darkest Dungeon is easily the best dungeon crawler I've ever played due to the depth of its mechanics and its creative and unique art style. Some reviewers are saying that its RNG is unfair, but in my opinion, this game is perfectly balanced. This game is absolutely not unfair -- it's just really hard. What keeps it fun after 600 hours is the sheer versatility of many of the hero classes and the different party combinations you can come up with. Your forethought and strategic thinking really pays off.

Like the game tells you in the beginning, it's about making the best of a bad situation. You will have to weigh whether to go for that final hit on a boss when your hero is at death's door and risk losing them permanently -- sometimes you will fail and be crushed, while other times you triumph. Your failures will teach you and make you resilient, while your victories will stay rewarding throughout the endgame. If you are on the fence, take the plunge into the Darkest Dungeon.

I really want to like this game. It has extremely good atmosphere and visceral feel, coupled with an appropriate art style - aesthetically it's fantastic. There's also nothing wrong with the core gameplay, albeit with a little too much emphasis on grinding for my taste. Classes are well-designed and well-balanced, mechanics broad enough to allow for multiple strategies.

Unfortunately, there just isn't any real sense of progression. That's not to say your characters don't progress - they do - but all progression is in the form of small, mundane numbers boosts such that functionality never changes. The abilities and strategies you're using in mission 3 will be the same ones you're using in mission 50. This, coupled with the game's focus on grinding, leads it to become repetitive far too quickly.

I want to like the game. I've tried twice now, each time putting in ~10 hours of gameplay. Unfortunately these design decisions, while good for balancing, lead me to inevitably get bored and wander off long before any kind of satisfying conclusion can be reached.

Ruin...Has come to our family. You remember our venerable house? Opulent and Imperial...Gazing proudly from its stoic perch above the moor. I lived all my years in that ancient, rumor shadowed manor. Fattened by decadence and luxury...And yet...I began to tire of, conventional extravagance. Singular unsettling tales suggest that the mansion itself was a gateway to some fabulous and unnamable power.

With relic and ritual...I bent every effort towards the excavation and recovery of those long buried secrets. Exhausting what remained of our family fortune on swarthy workmen and...sturdy shovels... At last beneath the lowest foundations we unearthed that damnable portal and antediluvian evil.

Our every step unsettled the ancient earth...but we were in a realm of death and madness...In the end...I alone fled laughing and wailing through those blackened arcades of antiquity...Until consciousness failed me...

You remember our venerable house? Opulent and Imperial...It is a festering abomination... I beg you...Return home, claim your birthright... And deliver our family from the ravenous...clutching shadows...of the Darkest Dungeon

The voice actor alone is enough reason to get this game. I got it on sale and i never expected to spend this much time on it, and planning to keep playing it. Its kept alive by its modding community and while its no where near the volume of some other modding communities its solid enough with custom classes, custom skins and many quality of life touch ups to the game.

The game is challenging it will kick you down and kick you while your down. It is merciless and punishing. So if that is your cup of tea, this is your type of game. If it's not well mods can help make things a little easier, however, the game will still do its best to kill you and potentially succeed.

That's really all i have to say for now, i want to get back to dungeon diving get the game if you see it on sale but know that it is well worth paying full price. (with &/or without) dlc.

Originally I bought and played this game back in 2018, I made it to exactly week 4 and was entirely shattered by the game. Then I stopped touching it, until just recently I decided to get back into it. Once I got over the impending doom of losing characters and valuable currency, I realized why I quit the game originally. I simply was too afraid to risk losing things, now, I just don't give a shit. It's nice to finally realize the entertainment in this game even though I still do suffer from existential dread with each new quest; fearing the day I lose the characters I invest a lot of gear and money into. Overall, fuck you Darkest Dungeon but you've brought out the sadomasochist in me and I'm absolutely enthralled with delving deeper into curious madness. Even though I'm late, definitely recommend. But Jesus fuck if I lose my top bounty hunter I'm going to blow my load

The game has a mechanic to stress the heroes, but you will be stressed too.
Very good game I highly recommend unless you have heart problems.
Also DLC's make it harder.

I tried to play this game 2-3 times since it was released. So my play time is more than steam shows. Yet i never had a will to finish as this games gradually gets harder and harder as you progress. Your heroes' being getting leveled up gives you false impression about you are getting stronger but as heroes levels up they can no longer be send to low level dungeons. Dungeons they are compatible are way harder than low level ones. You upgrade their armor and their weapon and their skills AND equip them with better trinkets and quirks JUST to send to the way deadlier dungeons where they can get critted %70 hp's they have. This feeling gives you all hours you spent to improve your heroes are just to become more miserable in high level dungeons.

Also as game progress - as dungeons gets deadlier - you have to pay attention to everything you do. You have to send specific heroes to specific dungeons and equip them with specific skills and quirks, because otherwise you have no chance against foes you encounter. The very first encounter you face in dungeon hits you so hard that makes you realise that expedition you think you'll be fine won't end in your favor. I can't calculate everything while playing. This obligation overwhelms me.

Believe it or not you make some emotional link with some of your heroes because you invest some time and gear and memories with them. They do good performances in earlier dungeons. So that makes you confident that one level higher dungeon won't be too bad. You think they get strong enough to brace upcoming difficulties. That is until you face your first encounter in champion level dungeon and then they die.

If steam asks me if i recommend this game to others? No i dont.

BUT if i was asked if this game was good, i certainly say this is a GOOD GAME because it does what it was programmed to do. This game is about making choices in bad situations. Graphics are good and your ancestor's comments as you play are awesome.

But i don't enjoy getting disappointed regularly playing game...

**Before reading this review, please keep in mind that this is MY opinion and shouldn't affect how other people view this game**

So, this review seems a bit overdue. I wasn't planning on playing over 100 hours of the game before making a review. I had originally planned to write it before, but my boyfriend encouraged me to wait until I beat the game or at least until I tried a serious run on the Darkest Dungeon. That is why it took me so long to write this.
I got this game as a gift from boyfriend a couple of years ago, though even before that I had already seen him play the game quite a bit, and I really enjoyed it. There was just something about the dark nature of the game that just drew me in, so I was so happy when I got this game. And with all the hours I have put into the game, there are definitely some aspects I like, feel mixed about, and don't like, which is why I am going to make a review on it. Just keep in mind, I haven't finished the game completely. The most I have done is to do a serious attempt on the Darkest Dungeon once, so with that in mind, don't think there will be anything regarding the ending.

So, let's begin with the review!
(Also, just for the record, this will probably be a long review, so bear with me)

Things I like about the game:
1. The different characters one can play as (and all the combinations for teams): So, one thing I really liked from the beginning was just how many different classes there were and how many different builds one could make. I feel like it gives you the ability to put your own style of gaming into the team you create. If you want a more damage dealing team, you can do it. If you wanna focus on evasion, you can do that too. And the amount of different styles is so fun. Whether it be damage, stress, glass cannon, evasion, prot, etc. It's just really fun to tinker around with them, and seeing what combination works best.
2. The Narrator: Oh my god. I think most people who have played this game (Or well, at least the people I have known who also have this game) have commented on the narrator and his quotes. And honestly, that just makes the game so much more entertaining. Like, that voice and those lines just...have a way of sticking on you. To the point, my boyfriend, a friend of ours, and I just sometimes quote the narrator out of nowhere. So yes, I had to add that as something I like xD
3. The music: So, I am usually the type of person who let's the music speak for the game in a lot of cases and Darkest Dungeon is no exception to that. Though there are many occasions I don't play with music in this game (for whatever reason), I do really like the music in the game. I think it speaks a lot about what is going on in the game, especially when it comes to all the stress and darkness that is occurring.
4. The enemies/bosses (how diverse they can be): Now, while I was thinking of putting this in the mixed section of this review (because some enemies can just be absolutely tedious to deal with), I just love how original the designs are. Like, especially when one goes into the harder dungeons, I like how disturbing the enemies look and it's just so....amazing. The bosses are also pretty cool in regards to their looks (though some of them can be extremely annoying to face, which comes from me who swore to defeat all bosses before going into the Darkest Dungeon).
5. How the dungeons map change every time you go in: I don't think I need to explain this much further. I just feel it adds a sense of difference each time you go into a dungeon.
6. The mods: To be honest, this is the first game I have ever played while using mods, and oh my god. Do they add to the experience. So, when I first saw my boyfriend play Darkest Dungeon for me, I didn't know he was using mods (since a lot of the character just blend in so well with the entire game). This got me into using some of those mods, as well. And I will tell you, it makes such a difference. The mods that fit in so well with the game that you don't even realize they are mods and just the different types of characters that are added with those mods is just so fun and amazing.

Now, that I've mentioned some of the things I like, time to bring up things I am more mixed about.
1. The difficulty: Now, I wasn't really certain on where to put this, as it is something that adds a lot of charm to the game and a lot of satisfaction when one succeeds. However, there are just some things that I find just...so difficult that it makes me go crazy. Now I played this game on Radiant, and you would think, it would be a walk in park. It isn't and I knew that. But just seeing some of the things my boyfriend has experienced in harder difficulties, and what I experienced in the Darkest Dungeon (and that's excluding what I have faced in regular dungeons) and it's like....How's one supposed to beat that? So yeah, I needed to put this in mixed feelings.
2. How certain items you interact with can do barely any good: So, for people who have played this, it's hard not to mention the different items you can interact with on your way through a dungeon. And while I am not against putting both good and bad items in the game, I will say that some items...it's like there isn't even a point to interact with them cause all they do is bad. Like, with other items, there are percentages and it's up to you if you want to take the risk or not of interacting with them, but then there are just some that immediately you should steer clear from. And it's...a very mixed feeling I have on that.
3. The length of some dungeons: You know, I won't go into too much detail on this. All I will say, is that (1) I am just happy that I can choose what type of dungeon I can go through (from short to long) and (2) I think I have only done a long run in a dungeon once, because I felt it was so tedious to do the long ones. Like I am okay with camping once, camping more than that....ehhh. Yeah.
4. The inventory size: Oh boy, I am surprised this didn't end up on the dislike side of this review. But you know, it's very mixed. On one side, I can kind of understand why the inventory is so small (especially on a game where supplies should feel a bit more limited), it can get kind of annoying at times. Like sometimes I just wish that as you progressed, you could get more inventory size. But, overall, it's nothing too bad that it ruins my experience.

And those are the things I feel mixed about. When it comes to things I dislike about the game, I couldn't really think of any except well...the collector! Because he just annoys me, especially when he pops out of nowhere to ruin my run) and well, sometimes the whole equipping trinkets and upgrading gear can get quite tedious, but that's just more because I forget to do it (and my bf and our friend wonder how I am able to progress without doing that).

Overall, I really love this game. Despite it's downfalls and things I feel mixed about, I really love this game and would even go so far as to say it is one of my favorite games right now. There's just soo much to do and so many hours you can put into this game. It's so fun! I would recommend it to anybody who likes these dark types of games with turn-based strategy. And well, that's all I have to say for this review.

PS: It took me a bit over an hour to write this, so there are probably some things I forgot, but overall this review gives my point of view on the game as well as I possibly could.

A dungeon crawler that hurts so good !!!
Darkest Dungeon is at its best when the chips are down, serious, this game is unforgiving.
There's always a strand of hope, however slender, to pull yourself out of the darkness, and it's worth fighting through it.
Take your time to learn the game and you will see that there is alot to discover.
For me .... same addiction as The Binding Of Isaac, one more run .... just one more...

I played this game for an hour upon purchase in 2017. Moved on as it didn't catch me.

2021 a streamer I watched began playing it so I picked it up again. At first I didn't know if I liked or hated it. I then decided it was both. After 100 hours I like it far, far more than I dislike it.

Extremely difficult/challenging, but lots of decisions to make. Infrastructure, buffs, debuffs, skills, weapons/armour. Interesting setting, good story, and lots and lots of playtime involved.

I had 4 characters on Level 5. It was challenging and fun but in the end it was too challanging.
Several times i ran out of money, which can lead in to a dead end, where you just can´t afford to buy crucial items for the dungeons or heal up your characters in town. You realy have to know where and how to spend your money best and thats learned with trial and error which can be just painfull.

I started a second game from scratch, this time I knew how to spend the money and money was no problem anymore.
But the overall difficulty of the game makes it painfull to play in the end for me. Its just to difficult.
Healing up you best group can take up to three rounds in town, often two rounds. In these waiting rounds you just throw some garbage group in the dungeons, and hope they return the money you spend for them. Healing them back up later is just wasting money, so they die like flyes until your main group is healed up.

But then you try to fight again with your healed up main group and then they just get their ass handed to them immediatley. Sometimes you eat severel critical damage hits from enemys plus fear points wich means to heal them up again for several rounds........it just got to a point where I just gave up.

This game does not respect the time you put into it. A lot of diehard fans will swear to you otherwise, that you're just not doing it right.. Just save your time and don't bother with this one. Even once you accept that it's not the dungeon crawler you thought it was, the unforgiving 'random' numbers that are overwhelmingly stacked against you will ruin many runs and force you to start all over again after losing incredibly important heroes, trinkets etc that you spend hours upon hours grinding to achieve any measurable progress. It's a shame, because other than the mechanics at play the game is convincingly charming with excellent art, sound, music etc. But do not be fooled, it's a complete waste of time, even with mods the game's entire routine of built-in setbacks completely sours what would otherwise be a really engrossing game. Do not - I repeat - do not listen to fans of this game. They are most likely going to be absolute bootlicking fanboys about the game knowledge required to win and argue the merits of 'learning' to enjoy the masochistic nature of the setbacks - these people are losers with far too much free time on their hands, and that is coming from an adult who still finds 60+ hours a week to play games.

This game will not reward you, at all, under any circumstances, and involves far too much punishment/time wasting to be considered a reasonable way to spend time.. According to my time played, I *used* to be a fan. Fuck this game forever.

It's addicting and good. Sometimes it's kinda hard and you just have bad luck and some of your characters end up dying because of that, but it feels rewarding when you start beating quests because you are finally understanding the mechanics of the game, so don't give up once you start playing it for the first time.

Darkest Dungeon is a great game, atmospheric and in many ways unique. But if it were a little shorter and more varied, it would be even better.

Pros: a unique concept of the psychological state and stress resistance of characters; deep survival mechanics; difficult battles; verified atmosphere; excellent visual style and soundtrack.
Cons: the game is protracted and gradually becomes monotonous.

In a clever yet blunt twist of the obvious, Darkest Dungeon takes the number one complaint about rogue-likes, which is how stressful they are, and makes that the entire central focus point of the game. You'd think then that the entire experience revolves around a dark, Banksy-like satire of difficulty and death, and while that is partially correct, Darkest Dungeon actively encourages you to NOT let your party dissolve into madness.

This, of course, puts the pressure on you, the player, to make and manage a small force of fighters that you have the responsibility of keeping alive and healthy. Imagine those gacha games where you have a bunch of unique characters at your disposal, but if they all actually mattered and never come back if you lose them. Plus, there are always more heroes to recruit at your own free will if you want to throw more people at a wall to fight and die.

The gimmick here is that while you're actively trying to purge some heresy, you're not working with some immortal main protagonists that reappear after loading a checkpoint. You're sending what are essentially normal people at impossible odds, and that's what makes the prospect of winning all the more satisfying. Clearing a dungeon without losing anyone is a rewarding experience, thus making the journey with these characters a worthwhile one given the time.

tl;dr: It's fun, but stressful, but rewarding. Not for everyone, but certainly not for nobody, and there's a reason that the reviews stand in it's favor.

Darkest dungeon is not hard in the conventional sense, but rather by being extremely hard to learn, because every mistake has dire consequences, and the emotion of losing characters always gets in the way of learning and understanding what went wrong.
Many people believe that the problem with the game is RNG, however I would say that the most brutal part of the game is that you're punished for not knowing things you could have never known. If that bothers you the only solution is to use the wiki, which I recommend for all players to use when handling curios, but most people won't want to spoil what the bosses do.

Darkest Dungeon will have you Raise up fresh faced adventurers full of hopes and dreams of glory and victory... and you watch them fall apart and die in both mind and body.

My advice is don't get attached to your heroes. because they will die.

This game is great mechanically as a dungeon exploration game and has great modding to make it even better... but this game is not for those who rage quit when the going gets tough, because it will get tough.
Your strong heroes will exit that dungeon as broken eggshells (if they are lucky) which you'll need to heal and put back together just so you can send them back out again.

[h1]????Introduction[/h1]
Darkest Dungeon (referred to as DD from now on) is a turn-based rogue-lite with a huge emphasis on difficulty, along with a crude and dark atmosphere surrounding it. Unlike a lot of other RPGs, DD forces players out of their comfort zone and makes them feel at the mercy of every battle they encounter. Your heroes will die, but death isn’t the end.

[h1]✔️Pros[/h1]
• A diverse roster of heroes to choose from
• Each area has unique enemies
• Amazing atmosphere and narration that really nails the dark and gritty feel to the game
• Knowledge is power, enemies have specific attacks and weaknesses, bosses have unique mechanics you’ll have to overcome
• Combat is very tactile and strategy based, every move matters
• The stakes are always high

[h1]❌Cons[/h1]
• Permanent progression doesn’t help you much when exploring dungeons
• There’s a big difficulty spike when going from Veteran to Champion dungeons
• Mistakes will cost you dearly, setting you back in your progress to defeat the Darkest Dungeon

[h1]????In-Depth Analysis[/h1]
[h3]The Hamlet… It’s yours now[/h3]
DD is made up of two stages, the Hamlet, where you treat and upgrade your heroes, and exploring the twisted depths of the dungeons. In the Hamlet you can recruit heroes into your roster, upgrade their skills, weapons and treat their stress levels to ensure they don’t go insane. This is where your main form of progression will be, upgrading buildings allows you to purchase more trinkets, relieve more stress from heroes, upgrade their weapons, armour and so on. It's a slow form of progression, which unfortunately, you never really feel whilst exploring the dungeons, it's only there to help treat your heroes faster and gain new skills.

[h3]Heroes Diversity[/h3]
In order to traverse these dungeons, you need a group of heroes willing enough to explore the darkest depths. There’s a lot of diversity when it comes to heroes that you choose to recruit, each has a specific role to play. There isn’t such a thing as a ‘bad hero’ as everyone offers something unique to the team. But there is such a thing as a bad team, you need to pick who you bring along wisely as a bad team can lead to their demise. You can’t brute force your way through the game by bringing only damage dealers, you require a well-balanced team that can support whatever situation you might find yourself in.

Unlike traditional RPGs, it's crucial that you understand that the heroes in your roster are expendable. They can be cast away if maintaining their stress, quirks and / or diseases become too expensive. The game teaches this to you early on with level zero heroes that can be easily replaced by new arrivals in your coach. Admittedly, it might take a little while to get into this sadistic mindset, but the sooner you stop getting attached to ‘powerful’ heroes in your team, the better. You need to prioritise keeping your higher level heroes well rested and letting go of lower levels that aren’t worth the investment.

[h3]Nobody's Perfect[/h3]
Whilst traversing such gritty and dark dungeons, your heroes will naturally develop both positive and negative quirks (mostly negative) either during the dungeons by being too curious, or when you finish a dungeon. Most of the time, these are out of your control, they become annoyances that you’ll either learn to deal with or remove for a cost. These can range from increasing/decreasing your heroes stats, making them steal loot for themselves, only allowing them to relieve stress in certain areas, making them believe they’re possessed by demons and so on. It's left up to you whether it's worth keeping the hero despite their flaws, or cast them away and start fresh. This makes every hero unique, even if you have the same two classes, you need to figure out if the positive quirks outweigh the negative ones.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2695524407

[h3]Harrowing Dungeons[/h3]
There are four different areas to explore when choosing which dungeon to traverse, each area brings new threats and unique enemies that have different strengths and weaknesses. In order to survive you need to exploit their weaknesses as much as possible. Some enemies are more susceptible to the bleeding status effect than others, so figuring this out for each area is vital to making each journey as easy as possible.

Dungeon difficulty is determined by your heroes level, higher level heroes will refuse to fight in lower level dungeons. This forces you to balance out everyone's level in your roster, it’s no good having a single team at level five if the rest are at level two. It’s a clever way the game stops players from rushing and makes sure that you take care of your heroes. On the other hand, this strings out the game to be longer than you would expect, and even longer if your heroes die. You might feel comfortable traversing the lower level dungeons, however, as you progress to veteran and champion dungeons, you’ll soon be put back in your place, with uncertainty as to what enemies you’ll encounter and how to deal with them the most efficient way possible.

[h3]Fight… or Die Trying[/h3]
Combat has a large emphasis on positioning, both for your heroes and the enemies you’ll encounter. Every attack can only be used if you are in the correct position, and can only hit enemies in certain positions. For example, melee attacks usually require the hero to be in the first or second position and can only be used on the first or second position on the enemies side. This is why it's extremely valuable to have a varied team that can deal damage to all four positions. You might be wondering why they would ever leave their preferred position(s) in the first place, but there are some enemies that move heroes back and forth. You can always move back to your original position within a move or two, but that wastes precious turns that you might not always have when battling fierce foes. On the other hand, you can also mess with enemies by pulling them into positions they don't prefer which will force them to use weaker attacks.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2695500268

Along with maintaining health during combat, stress is also a concern for your party members. Some enemies have attacks that purely focus on inflicting stress rather than dealing damage. Mitigating stress is probably more important than maintaining health since it's difficult to reduce stress when inside dungeons. That being said, a hero with zero health isn’t good for anyone, so managing both of these is crucial to your hero's survival and longevity. When you reach 100 stress the hero will be inflicted either positively or negatively (mostly negative though), this will cause them to act recklessly and make them do actions by themselves, depending on the infliction. This can range from passing their turn, attacking their party members, stressing out the other party members, attacking by themselves and so on. It's a downward spiral that, if left untreated, will cause other party members to become more stressed and be inflicted as well.

[h1]????Closing Thoughts[/h1]
DD is a brutally difficult game, it turns the genre on its head by making the heroes you recruit nothing special. They are replaceable, and they can die. The combat is thought-provoking, every attack has a chance to miss, and it's up to you whether it's worth taking the risk. Admittedly, the progression is slow, and killing a level six hero can be extremely detrimental to completing the game which might turn a lot of people off. However, it's part of the game that you’ll learn to accept and cope with.

My Crusader started cracking up from the stress and became abusive. She started verbally and physically abusing the rest of the party and took particular exception with my Man-At-Arms. She would constantly belittle him in and out of combat. During one fight she screamed at him and bashed him in the back of the head stunning him for a round. Her abuse was so intense my Man-At-Arms became so stressed out he had a breakdown. Once madness seeped into the party there wasn't anything I could do to stop it overwhelming them. First the Crusader then the MAA then my healer... She started becoming paranoid irrational, cutting herself and the other party members. She would refuse to heal anyone or randomly out of turn heal one of them out of turn. During the fight with the Necromancer the infighting became so bad they were doing almost as much damage to themselves as the enemies were. I failed fleeing the fight 2 times and succeeded on the 3rd. In the hall outside the Necromancer's room 3 of them had heart attacks and dropped dead. The only survivor was my Arbalest but she was seriously damaged by the experience. 10/10

It's a love-hate relationship with Darkest Dungeon, you always need to be prepared as things may not go the way you expected, and the game will not be there to hold your hand when problems arise.

There are plenty of unfair mechanics throughout the game that will slow down or even stop your progression (stop meaning loading up a new game), varying from diseases, your units taking your loot, and even getting bad quirks from curios, etc.

Darkest Dungeon is an extremely hard turn-based rogue-lite for players to master. So be it difficult I recommend this game to all kinds of gamers.

In the end, this game reminds me of her, enjoy your stay at the hamlet.

No es un juego para cualquier tipo de persona, los personajes son descartables y no te podes encariñar con los personajes ya que una vez que mueren recuperarlos cuesta muchisimo. Y es frustrante para varios, asi que sino te queres enfretar a ese tipo de reto no te lo recomiendo.
Otra mecanica que no me gusto es que vas a tener tus equipos mains, pero en ciertas situaciones vas a tener que llevar un equipo descartable simplemente para farmear tiempo o recursos, asi que sino tenes pasiencia para farmear tambien te patea.
Sacando esas 2 cosas cuando jugas con tus equipos es muy divertido probar composiciones, entender los campeones, las mazmorras estan bien hechas, todo el juego en general esta bueno.

Ok, to paraphrase is all, is it a good game? Almost. (with mods it becomes a yes).

Is it fun? It can be.

Now on to the review.

Look, this is actually a really well put together game as far as theme, atmosphere, and aesthetic goes. There are some great moments in the game play that really shine thru, like if you're back is against the wall and a hero pulls thru with a crazy crit heal/virtue kind of thing. The level and character design is amazingly detailed and unique, which really makes this game standout from similar roguelike titles.

However, the game simply ignores it's own mechanics way to much to be what I would consider a solid base game. Now, to caveat off that, there are plenty of mods that force the game to actually follow it own established design when it comes to probability, so you can experience the game without the 'random RNG bullshit' that it biasly pulls way to often.

Let me explain. In the base game, you can design groups that are ridiculously overpowered in SPD (aka initiative for you D and D people) and dodge. To the point that the numbers are stupid high (I've had individuals up into the low 40% on dodge, which is almost unreal in any other game outside on MMOs). I've also tested it with asinine levels of ACC (accuracy). By all accounts, statistically, you should steamroll everything at 'orange' level.

But that won't happen. Despite you stacking teams to 'hit first, hit hard, and avoid' the AI will simply ignore all that. It's gonna hit you. It's going to ignore your stats and abilities and basically just screw you over.

My results (tested at that almost 40 dodge rating across 300 encounters), should have given my group roughly 120 avoidances out of the controlled encounters. Granted this wasn't a completely controlled test environment due to me being unable to maintain enemy group composition but it should at least be close, I kept it at Weald only locations and ran at the veteran level. But nope. I got about 70% of that at a grand total of 81 dodges out of the statistically designed 120 I should have (give or take 5-15 for randomness). However, that's a pretty significant change.

To add to that, SPD is also not accurate. Despite having a workshop character (who was ridiculously broken in the SPD department for the whole group) enemies, almost 12-18 SPD level below him would go first. What's worse, those same enemies would sometimes totally ignore turns or go multiple times in one 'combat instance' despite, numerically, being much weaker than my party. It gets even worse with bosses, who can literally have four moves in one rotation. I have yet to experience any of my characters getting more than 'one move per turn'.

Look, I love the stress mechanic here. I like the idea of parties having to deal with the horrors (mentally) of what they face. I don't even mind that your characters have an almost 80% more likely chance of developing a negative virtue vs a positive. A little dark, sure, but it's not to debilitating as far as mechanics go (naturally depending on what you get slammed with).

But ability tracking, skill building should be within a 5-6% tolerance of the assigned numbers for balance and planning. There should never be a double digit difference between what the UI displays and what is actually happening in game. That prevents the player from planning accordingly or having any hope of adapting. Rogue-like should not translate to 'screw the player over continuously' simply because.

While you can circumvent a lot of the base game issues with the workshop (Heroes unchained, rebalancing, ect). I can't really recommend the original game.

Which is a shame really. Cause it is an interesting and unique idea, backed up by solid voice acting and presentation. But you have to give players a transparent and fair approach to gameplay mecahnics/decisions, not just throw statistics out the window to make a game 'hard'. It's what makes Dark Souls so good and unique. Yes it's difficult, but each boss has a pattern which can be learned and overcome. Random, off screen 'dice rolls' that totally break statistical probabilities isn't fun.

Honestly, this is super similar to Star Traders: Frontiers, except that Star Traders keeps the RNG within that 5-6% ratio. Which makes the game 'FEEL' better. Yeah, we all know life can screw you over, but statistics are statistics for a reason and they shouldn't just be arbitrary.

Do you like dark themes? Do you find Hard games incredibly fun? Do you feel like yelling at the characters you are playing when they lose all sanity and die of a heart attack? If any answers were yes then play this game.

In a dark story where all hope is lost you have to slowly take back the world one quest at a time. Heroes will die, quests will fail, and you will debate about rage quitting at times.
Such a lack of hope shows despair, as you grapple with the lack of sanity and question, is the world even worth saving? The monstrosities you face will fuel your nightmares as you come to terms with the horrors of this universe. One bad day could mean a whole party dead.

This game absorbs you into it and will make you want to continue. Get this game and feel the torment of the world crafted ever so expertly. Feel the oblivion.

A game I've been playing for hundred of hours over the course of six years and loved from the start.
Wayne's narration never gets old, and the inherent unfairness of this game allows me to get my ass kicked from time to time even as a seasoned veteran.

About time to give the positive review this game deserves, and that I never wrote before !
