Finally Necropolis is live on Steam, a few days now, and I couldn’t be happier not only that we have our hands on it but also that we are going to present you a full review of the title! But what is this game? Is it worth the hype? Should you pick it up right now or wait for it? Stick around and you will find out now. Let’s start by mentioning a few things about the game itself. NECROPOLIS combines third-person action with Rogue-lite dungeon-delving for a game that’s fast-paced and addictive, yet diabolically hardcore.
You play as a nameless adventurer attempting to escape a living, magical dungeon that reconstructs itself each time you play, with only one way out - down. Craft, equip, explore, and fight to stay alive as you delve deeper and face ever-greater threats in the twisting halls and endless chasms of the NECROPOLIS. Have no doubt, you’re going to die - often! - but you’ll improve your combat skills, available upgrades, and dungeon know-how with every playthrough, bringing you one step closer to the exit. (Warning: “Just one more time” mindset can be addicting.) The very first aspect that really surprised me is the graphics and in general the art work of the title.
They are really sharp, unique and create an amazing atmosphere for even the most demanding players. The dungeons are dark, cruel and mostly unforgiving. Don’t expect an easy playthrough. The title also offers procedurally-generated dungeons with every death. Death is only a new beginning in Necropolis and every time a new challenge and adventure awaits. Moreover, the game is better with friends. You can play with up to 4 players online. Furthermore, there are a lot of different enemies that will challenge you during your journey like hoardmen and gemeaters.
I should also not forget to mention that each new dungeon is littered with powerful weapons, armor, and upgrades to wield against your foes. There is crafting as well. As far as the negative aspects are concerned, I found the price to be really high concerning the content of the game despite its replay value. Moreover, there is lack of items and content. Sometimes you even find the same old enemies despite that the dungeon is changing.
To sum up, the game despite its negatives looks and feels really amazing. I totally recommend it and I can tell that the devs have spend a great amount of time creating a fun title for even the most demanding players.
