The Dark Eye - Demonicon est un JDR-action palpitant se déroulant dans l'univers incroyablement populaire de « L'Oeil noir », un univers médiéval-fantastique d'une grande richesse déjà très apprécié par de nombreux joueurs.

The Dark Eye - Demonicon raconte l'histoire tragique d'un frère et d'une soeur pris dans les forces sinistres d'un monde livré à la cruauté et la dépravation. Leur amour est une bénédiction autant qu'une malédiction. Faces aux pires dangers et aux tentations démoniaques, ils doivent affronter des décisions morales extrêmement difficiles. Leur destin commun et leurs choix détermineront l'avenir du continent tout entier. Sur leur chemin vers la paix et la liberté se dresseront des hordes de démons, et seul le combat et la magie leur permettront de s'affranchir des ténèbres.

  • Un JDR-action à la 3e personne mélangeant des combos brutaux et des magies époustouflantes
  • Une histoire riche et captivante avec de nombreux rebondissements, des conflits impressionnants et des choix moraux
  • Des combats remplis d'action avec des réflexes fulgurants et des stratégies poussées
  • Un système de magies unique : chaque talent confère des puissances mystiques dévastatrices qui changent l'apparence du joueur
  • Un système d'artisanat complet permettant de créer des potions, des lames empoisonnées et des armures enchantées

Demonicon...
-The story is mediocre...but enjoyable and good for what its worth
-The combat is mediocre...easy and simple
-The character customisation is mediocre...but still,well done
-The invetory is mediocre...console like list of gear
-The graphics of the game is mediocre...but it is not ugly
-The animations are mediocre...all of animation is mediocre, (2D cutscenes where well done)
-The voice acting is mediocre...it shines here and there for few NPC's
-The gameplay is mediocre...it really is

So yeah, overall it is a pretty mediocre game.
Although I myself am a mediocre guy so for some reason, I liked this game.
It was nice to go back to the Dark Eye universe,back to Aventuria.
Still longing for a proper Drakensang game.

I can recommend this game to those who have no high expectations,and can lower it a bit...to that mediocre level to be precise. This ARPG can deliver some fine playing hours,it has some good moments.
It was OK for me.
Giving it a mediocre thumbs up. :)

UNACCEPTABLE, UNPLAYABLE, BROKEN!! On my MSI laptop if I move the cursor near the bottom of the screen, the system switches out of the game and into the Steam app, and I have to click on the game icon to get back into the game. With other games this is a minor annoyance.

But Demonicon causes a total hard system crash if one leaves the game and then tries to resume or alt-tab back into it. CTL-ALT-DEL doesn't work. The only solution is to power down and reboot. Hard crashes can damage the directory.

I've looked at the discussion area, and others have encountered the same problem. Not worth my time!

A nice ambitious game, that wished to be many things; it does not exceed every expectations in any, but it still is quite enjoyable.
For instance, its graphics appearence is outdated, and the fact that you cannot save whenever you want is extremely out of place in an RPG; however, the RPG component is not the only one - we should call it an action-RPG, with scarce focus on equip, with stats and abilities that are used and developed more like a hack-and-slash than a pure RPG and generally feel less important than your dodging abilities. Your character cannot be personalised, the story is quite linear, the world clearly has its lore, but you never get really sucked into it.
All of this said, the story keeps you interested long enough, the style is challenging without being frustrating, and the Dark Eye's world has a lot of potential that has been scarcely exploited in games, so it feels like a breath of fresh air. If you can accept its limitations, it is a game you will enjoy.

Positives:

-Dialogues, cinematics and cutscenes
-Character development
-Decision making (affecting story as it unfolds)
-Skill levelling system
-Slot abilities (endurance), passive abilities and gift (mana) abilities
-Upgradable weapons (barely)
-Linear story

Negatives:

-Poorly written
-Clunky mechanics
-Repetitive combat
-Terrible character animation, movement and expression (all very important to a story driven RPG!)
-Linear story

Conclusion: I would recommend this game both on sale and to RPG enthusiasts who play an expanse of games. If you have been grounded in modern day, open world story RPGs such as The Witcher, Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls etc. Then chances are you will not enjoy this. When playing this game I felt as if it was from last decade. Every aspect of this game is lacking intuition and innovation, there is no replayibility factor. So why am I giving this game a thumbs up? It still managed to provide me with several hours of entertainment, which is an achievement considering its flaws and I got it as part of a bundle. Worth.

Can't neg review a game I got as part of a cheap bundle, however I will highlight that it is of another era. The gameplay dynamics such as combat system and menu navigation is set to reflect the lore of a preexisting universe and it's not awesome for new players.. That being said, it has merit as a highly technical game and what I saw of the storyline was impressive.

This was just "recommended" to me through Steam. How can I write a review if I obviously don't own it, since then it wouldn't show up as recommended, you ask?

Well I owned it and I wrote Steam support to delete this sorry excuse for a game from my account.
This is no good game for anyone, not for "Realms of Arcania/The Dark Eye/Das Schwarze Auge"-Fans since it is dumbed down that it hurts and also not for RPG-Fans in general, since it is badly written, the mechanics are no fun and there are many, many better alternatives available.

Other reviewers have put this better; but this isn't worth your time unless:
1) it's very, very discounted on sale (do not pay more than £4)
2) you don't mind mindless controller click X combat
3) You really want to play an incest simulator

This game is very entertaining if you take it without any prior experiences with adventure RPGs in mind. It feels as if your stuck in a closed storyline with the illusion of choice always present. However the game turns this into a positive towards the end, and builds you up into making careful yet definitive decisions that influence each summary of the type of person and world you are creating for the future. The mechanics weren't the best, a bit clunky for sure. However the storyline is rich in real life problems saturated with just the right amount of demonic lore to keep you wondering why America is not voting Bernie Sanders.

I got "Demonicon" as part of a bundle a while back and played several hours of the game. At first, I was a bit drawn to it because I felt that it might have a style somewhat similar to The Witcher, and while that's true to a degree, it's also a very different type of game in many ways too.

For one thing, this is part of "The Dark Eye" universe, and so it's an RPG system that many won't be very familiar with, although other games in that universe do exist outside of the German market (where Dark Eye is most popular).

However, while this game may not be something you should compare to a AAA title like The Witcher 2, it does have its merits:

PROS:
*A unique, well-delivered story
*Lots of side-quests
*A moral choice-based system with definite outcomes
*A living world
*Decent (but not great) voice-acting
*Decent graphics

CONS:
*Slow-paced at times
*Clunky Combat System
*Clunky Controls in places
*Buggy
*Unbalanced Difficulty in places

In my opinion, the game isn't quite worth the full $19.99 asking price, but if you enjoy Western RPGs of this style, I'd recommend picking it up at a good Steam sale or as part of a bundle!

I tend to personally emphasize distinct character and originality of writing in my gaming immersion, even if game-play and user inter-face are of course far from irrelevant. Push comes to shove, I'd still take something bit flawed and interesting; than mechanically perfect but bland.

What I like about Demonicon is that you get a sense of a greater gameworld, lore and back-story, this being part of "Dark Eye" franchise not primarily published for PC. (Drakensang would be the other title I'm aware of)

Combat is not excessively tactical, but I was not bored, and found the levelling up and skills system fairly satisfying.

The story premise is interesting, and the voice acting was particularly excellent for a title that probably did not have enorous budget: recognize and like both lead actors a lot. Special thumbs up for making my in-game dad so insufferably illogical in his little schemes, and allowing reasonable amount of back-talk to the old geezer!

I think this title is worth a try for RPG fans whom do not mind action -RPG combat but enjoy a back-story.

The story is damn sick! I was about to stop playing it in the middle of the first chapter, but then it got better and more interesting. I liked the character progression and the fact that I had to take tough decisions. The gameplay is fine, but not very challenging even on the hard difficulty. Overall, not a bad game, but the Witcher is cheaper, more challenging and has a lot more content.

Oui en solde/bundle, non s'il est à prix fort.

Un jeu qui me laisse un petit goût de "ça pourrait être tellement mieux".

Il n'y a pas que du mauvais mais des defauts tout de même... Une certaine lourdeur dans le gameplay, surtout pour les combats (syndrome risen, un peu galère au début puis bien plus facile au fil de la montée), ou certains deplacements de zone en zone.
L'animation des personnages n'est pas extraordinaire, surtout des visages. Mais les graphismes ne sont pas mauvais dans l'ensemble
Des quetes optionnelles qui n'apportent pas grand chose (si j'avais à le refaire, j'en ignorerai une partie, mais vu je n'aurai jamais envie de le recommencer...)

On a une interaction sur le monde mais de façon limitéé (même si bien entendu tous les événements dramatiques sont inéluctables), c'est à dire que l'on choisit nos favoris dans certains conflits d'ambiance, d'épargner ou de tuer certaines personnes.

Le jeu se fait tranquillement pour l'histoire et a une durée de vie pas négligeable. Mais ne donne pas envie de remettre le couvert non plus.

Pro - Action rpg with well-drawn cutscenes and a decent choice system.
Con - As someone who absolutely loved Mars: War Logs (a similar low-budget arpg) I just cannot recommend Demonimicon. It's lack of budget is much more pronounced, which dampens almost every aspect of the game - graphics, gameplay, and storytelling.

After playing other games from this developer like Mars War Logs, which I did enjoy, I fought through the negative feedback and thought, maybe this game just isnt for everyone! Unfortunately this game wasn't what I was hoping for. The fighting mechanics are slow, clunky and extremely repetitive. I probably could've played the game with a macro, 'swing, swing, swing...' The story was okay at best. It had nothing that excited or really made you want to play more thinking what's next?

Frankly I'm shocked I played this game to completion, I dont recommend playing it as it might just sit in your library forever.

This game is special. Yes the gameplay is not as smooth as someone might hope but its a lot of fun for everyone who likes the dark eye. LVL up might be a bit complicated and the combat can be challenging (I prefer playing this game with gamepad - much easier) but everyone who loves RPGs and doesn't expect fancy graphics wont be disappointed. Sad enough we wont ever see a sequel. And the brother/sister subject is a long shot but also something fresh I've never encountered before in a videogame.

This was really a tough one.

I wanted to like this game, i really did, i just could not bring myself recommend this game to anyone.

The first major flaw which i found to be HUGE was the improper loading, crashing and glitching of the game. If i wanted to load the game sometimes i would have to start the launcher three seperate times, using task manager to close the unresponsive instances inbetween. MAJOR pain in the rear. To make matters worse, sometimes the game would just decide to crash, just randomly. The only saving grace there is that the saves are frequent................but..................

The save file is singular, and by that i mean that any progress you make will overwrite your current save. That means if you screw up and pick the wrong choice, go into an area that advances the plot before finishing a side quest etc, you are stuck. The game will have overwritten with the furthest progress and you will have to start the game over to fix it. Not exactly something you like to see in an RPG were supposedly your decisions could effect how the story unfolds................but about that one................

Your choices dont matter. You are given the illusion of control of the characters destiny. The only things that will chance are slightly different cut scenes and your fetch quests will be given by either faction A or faction B. It just felt weak.

In terms of gameplay, there is some fun to be had there. The ice spells and the demon aura were quite good for stunning opponents and speeding your attacks. I found the Fire and Poison spells to be worthless, fire spell is point blank so you will get stabbed 100% of the time before the spell goes off and the poison spell burns through your magic wayyyyyyyy too fast. The attacking was done by simple chaining of your attack button (X for me since i used a 360 controller), the higher your chain the more magic you get back to refreeze your enemies. It got bland after about 15 hours in, which is not bad considering the whole game took me 18 hours and i did almost everything there was to do in a single play through.

The money in the game quickly becomes absolutely pointless. The only thing you will use it for is to buy potions and enchantments for your armor. The enchantments also get pointless as you get the "Final" set of armor at the end of chapter 3 (There are 5 chapters). I put silver enchantments in the armor because they were the best enchantments i had at that point in the game. Then in the next two chapters you get gold enchantments..............but no armor...........whatsoever. Since enchantments are permanent.............ya i was kinda screwed at that point.

The story starts out with good potential in the prologue and builds well in chapter 1 and 2 (chapter 2 was very well done). After that............meh...........just meh. Chapter 3 went in a direction i just did not care about and chapter 4 and 5 were just absolute crap. It felt like some other games i played where they started out with plenty of money and good ideas and then got rushed and had to wrap it up quickly and on a budget.

The bottom line is, i just will not recommend this game to any individual period. Between the software problems, weak story and mediocre gameplay, i just dont see anyone getting very much enjoyment out of this game.

Demonicon is an interesting RPG and, before going into details about it, I would recommend it if on sales. However it has some serious flaws, particularly for a relatively recent RPG and one based on a rather rich tabletop system.

The Pros:
* great story and interesting characters as well as moral quandaries. The game design goes out of its way to make you think about every choice and decision. It doesn't hesitate to go into seriously unconfortable territory right from the start.
* decent visuals, if not the most moder ones. The monsters are quite elaborate and NPC's look good, if not fantastic.
* enemy AI (at least for bosses) is hard to beat on normal mode and you will reload. Often.
* the character stats and development make sense and you need to make careful choices, especially at early stages.
* As expected for the porting of such a venerable tabletop RPG, the background is rich and you get the feeling of being part of a much wider world, as it should.

The Cons:
* the UI is not great. Although you can remap keys, the game system forces you into using key combos which is a big no-no in my book. And of course completely unnecessary.
* Invisible walls and "fake doors". This is a level design flaw but also a game flaw as the characters may not jump or crouch. Unacceptable for a modern RPG. It is completely immersion breaking and really a shame for a game with such an interesting world.
* Terrible dialogue system. Like in Fallout4, it doesn't really matter what you say and in any case, you don't know what you'll say before your character blurts it out. Very annoying.
* The combat system is interesting but suffers greatly from the above mentioned UI issue.

All in all, it is still a nice little game. Not worth buying full price, but certainly a good sales buy. Also don't buy it if you don't like fixed point saves. Seriously. Not only the game has no other option to save it but some of this saves are extremely far apart so you'll have to replay entire levels or areas forever.

Demonicon is not a great game. But it is not a bad a game. Dont think this is Dragon Age, The Witcher, or TES. All in all I beat the game in 13 hours and had fun playing it.

The graphics are dated with dull environments and the cut scenes reminded me of Dragon Age: Origins back when I played it on the PS3. The biggest gripe of Demonicon for me was the stiff and ugly character models. The story starts out very awkard and may turn some people away. If you can stick with it, it does get better but overall is still medicore. Demonicon has most of your rpg elements, leaving out any crafting system but allows you to brew potions. You do not have a level but gain AP and GP to spread into your abilities that effects everything from your fighting stats to being able to haggle merchants and fast talk to "influence" the conversation. You also have a total of 24 skills that you can unlock, 12 being melee based and 12 being magic based. Combat and bosses were very easy for me, but were still fun feeling like a hack and slash with four melee skills and four magic skills on hand during the fight.

Through my play I had no bugs, glitches, or problems. I was able to max the game out at 1080 on a dated system without any optimization issues.

I recommend this game if you are an RPG fan that can overlook the graphics and not expect an AAA title if you can find it on sell, I honestly do not know how they are still selling Demonicon for $19.99

Bonjour @ tous,

voici mon évaluation de Demonicon. Pour information, j'ai terminé à fond ce jeu à deux reprises.

Bon, dans un premier temps, il faut que vous sachiez que même si ce jeu s'inspire du jeux de rôles sur "papier et dés" "l'eil Noir", il n'en garde dans cet opus informatique guère que la mythologie du jeu. En effet, rien ne se passe en Aventurie (Pays où se situaient les aventres du jeu de rôle de l'Oeil Noir), en fait il ne reste du jeu éponyme que la théologie : les dieux et leurs interractions mutuelles en version exacerbée.

Sinon, il s'agit d'un RPG à la troisiéme personne, trés linéaire dans le sens où vous n'avez pas d'autres choix que de suivre l'intrigue principale et ses quêtes annexes, quels que soient vos choix. Ici, on n'est pas dans Skyrim.

Vous partez de rien et au final vous arrivez à pas grand chose d'un point de vue financier. D'un point de vue spirituel, c'est différent car vous allez pouvoir créer une nouvelle religion, rien que ça.

Choisissez bien vos interractions.

Non : je plaisante. Á ce moment précis, ce que vous aurez pu faire auparavant n'aura que peu d'incidence. Créez votre propre culte, et quoi qu'il en soit, envoyez le sur le monde, comme s'il avait encore besoin de ça, aprés avoir subit une déferlante du chaos et les actions de membres émergeants de l'espèce humaine pour reprendre en main la maigre population survivante ; dont vous faites partie au final. En clair, vous vous rendrez-compte que vous ne valez guère mieux que ceux que vous combattez.

En résumé, il s'agit d'un jeu à la troisiéme personne, dans un univers sombre, si ce n'est à l'agonie, et dont la finalité est de prolonger la soufrance des rares survivants de ce monde. Il se déroule dans une ambiance chaotique, où aucune loi ne prévaut, le fait de tuer quelqu'un n'a aucune incidence sur l'avenir (sauf peut-être sur celui du machabé et de sa famille) ; la seule règle étant de SURVIVIRE, coûte que coûte. Á n'importe quel prix. Même à celui de la vie d'autrui.

Rien à voir avec "L'Oeil Noir", si ce n'est les cultes.

Jeu interressant, mais pas si l'on a un "bon fond" (du genre à jouer des personnages "bons" dans "Baldur's Gate"). Dans ce cas, il laisse une certaine "amertume" une fois terminé.

Moineau.

Demonicon is a 3rd person action RPG. You follow the story of a brother and sister, which takes place in the Dark Eye universe, who find out they have special gifts when their blood was mixed. You only play as the brother leveling up through action points and gift points you earn through battles. You can level up main stats like strength and vitality, skills like lockpicking, medicine, and speech or combat skills with the action points you earn. The gift points go towards your gift skills which are like magic powers.

Combat in the game is ok. You have one mainattack besides the combat and gift skills. When attacking you need to time the button pressing right to continue your combo attack. Enemies can become bothersome or annoying sometimes when you go to attack and they keep hitting you and stopping your action. Controls did feel a little sluggish and slow when attacking. You do have a dodge roll which helps a little but your character seems to move slower than everyone else.

Graphics look to be from something 10 years ago which isn't bad just not up to par with some games today. Plus it doesn't matter how a game looks if you enjoy it. Sounds were pretty generic and sometimes annoying. There are some parts in town when you are running around and NPC dialog got load and cluttered when it seemed like 10 people are trying to talk over one another.

Characters were pretty interesting and funny. You can choose different ways to go in the game and I chose mainly the good side of things. What was weird though was in some conversations it seemed like my character was rude and evil even though I would pick the better dialog route. The story overall wasn't bad and get me interested to see how it all panned out in the end. You could even do another playthrough to see where other actions would take you.

There were some issue with the game though. Framerate issues were a problem throughout the game. No matter where I put the settings I would drop as low as 15 frames sometimes which made for some rough video. I also would see pop in at times and screen tearing. I even had the game crash on me about 5 times when I was more than halfway though the game.

Despite these flaws the game was still fun and intriguing. I liked some of the characters and even had some laughs here and there. It also has replay value if you'd like to see where the different choices would take you. If you can get the game on sale than pick it up and enjoy your time.

After playing other games from this developer like Mars War Logs, which I did enjoy, I fought through the negative feedback and thought, maybe this game just isnt for everyone! Unfortunately this game wasn't what I was hoping for. The fighting mechanics are slow, clunky and extremely repetitive. I probably could've played the game with a macro, 'swing, swing, swing...' The story was okay at best. It had nothing that excited or really made you want to play more thinking what's next?

Frankly I'm shocked I played this game to completion, I dont recommend playing it as it might just sit in your library forever.

I was born from the depths of the demon realm, fought monsters, demons, warriors and even my own kin to build my powers and seek the truth of my existence. Along the way I chose which people I would help, what alliances I would form, who I would trust and whom I would betray via conversation trees and my actions throughout my story. With every monster I killed I became more powerful by upgrading my skills, abilities and magic. What powers I upgraded determined how I interacted with the medieval style fantasy world I existed in. Upgrade my healing abilities and not only did potions work better on me but I was able to heal others on my journey. Upgrade my plant knowledge and more potions became available to me to be crafted, for healing, buffing and to poison my enemy. I was able to choose which magical attacks would best fit my play style and upgrade them accordingly to wreak havoc on my foes and seek vengeance, love, sex or various truths of the day.

Demonicon was an above average action RPG overall. It did everything an RPG is supposed to do well enough and has lots of flexibility in character creation, an enjoyable story that you get to sway here and there with meaningful choices, and solid if unspectacular graphics and voice work. I really enjoyed Demonicon more than most RPG’s I have played, the “Dark Eye” universe was new to me and I enjoyed exploring it and the character development choices and powers really made me feel like I was evolving into a demonic weapon, very satisfying experience and very underrated game.

This is a really fun game. I'm not even sure what else I can say about it I've enjoyed the game and will continue to do so until I beat it. It's worth playing for sure.

~Edit~

Having just beat the game, On normal mode I can honestly say this is a game worth playing. Choices between right and wrong, good and evil, will change the story, A very strange and different kind of story line. Reply ability without a doubt. I highly recommend this game to anyone that enjoys RPG's such as Dragon Age, Mass Effect and so on. The game is just filled with story plots and twist, side quest and more. Build your character how you would see it being and see the difference between a solidly build warrior and a carefully crafted mage. It really was a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Good luck.

Audio was cringeworthy, game glitched at first boss, enemies spawn out of no-where, and the abilities get cut off if you get hit, so... hard to play (even on easy mode).
Not really worth your time.

This was really a tough one.

I wanted to like this game, i really did, i just could not bring myself recommend this game to anyone.

The first major flaw which i found to be HUGE was the improper loading, crashing and glitching of the game. If i wanted to load the game sometimes i would have to start the launcher three seperate times, using task manager to close the unresponsive instances inbetween. MAJOR pain in the rear. To make matters worse, sometimes the game would just decide to crash, just randomly. The only saving grace there is that the saves are frequent................but..................

The save file is singular, and by that i mean that any progress you make will overwrite your current save. That means if you screw up and pick the wrong choice, go into an area that advances the plot before finishing a side quest etc, you are stuck. The game will have overwritten with the furthest progress and you will have to start the game over to fix it. Not exactly something you like to see in an RPG were supposedly your decisions could effect how the story unfolds................but about that one................

Your choices dont matter. You are given the illusion of control of the characters destiny. The only things that will chance are slightly different cut scenes and your fetch quests will be given by either faction A or faction B. It just felt weak.

In terms of gameplay, there is some fun to be had there. The ice spells and the demon aura were quite good for stunning opponents and speeding your attacks. I found the Fire and Poison spells to be worthless, fire spell is point blank so you will get stabbed 100% of the time before the spell goes off and the poison spell burns through your magic wayyyyyyyy too fast. The attacking was done by simple chaining of your attack button (X for me since i used a 360 controller), the higher your chain the more magic you get back to refreeze your enemies. It got bland after about 15 hours in, which is not bad considering the whole game took me 18 hours and i did almost everything there was to do in a single play through.

The money in the game quickly becomes absolutely pointless. The only thing you will use it for is to buy potions and enchantments for your armor. The enchantments also get pointless as you get the "Final" set of armor at the end of chapter 3 (There are 5 chapters). I put silver enchantments in the armor because they were the best enchantments i had at that point in the game. Then in the next two chapters you get gold enchantments..............but no armor...........whatsoever. Since enchantments are permanent.............ya i was kinda screwed at that point.

The story starts out with good potential in the prologue and builds well in chapter 1 and 2 (chapter 2 was very well done). After that............meh...........just meh. Chapter 3 went in a direction i just did not care about and chapter 4 and 5 were just absolute crap. It felt like some other games i played where they started out with plenty of money and good ideas and then got rushed and had to wrap it up quickly and on a budget.

The bottom line is, i just will not recommend this game to any individual period. Between the software problems, weak story and mediocre gameplay, i just dont see anyone getting very much enjoyment out of this game.

Je reposte mon avis ici :
"Apres avoir avancé dans le jeu, je remonte la note. Je me régale en fait sur ce RPG qui paie pas de mine. Ce qui compte avant tout dans un jeu pour moi est le scénario et je le trouve assez poussé avec de bons dialogues explicatifs du contexte, en tout cas bien plus interressant que celui de "Skyrim". C'est sur que les graphismes sont tres loin de rivaliser mais on s'y fait vite et finalement . Au niveau des combats, il y a de la difficulté en tout cas en mode "difficile" et ca fait plaisir de nos jours. En plus, je viens d'arriver au chapitre 2 (il y en a 5) et je me demandais quand le premier chapitre allait finir, donc une bonne durée de vie j'imagine.
Bref, je trouve désolant que ce RPG n'est toujours pas de test sur le site et que le forum soit déserté. On peut pourtant pas dire qu'on croule sur les sorties "rpg" ces temps ci. Donc, je conseille vraiment à tous les fans de "rpg" qui ne jurent pas que par les "mondes ouverts" et les graphismes de se le procurer au plus vite."

Demonicon est un exellent jeu de rôle quui n'a rien à envier à Skyrim et autres blockbuster du genre.
C'est vrai qu'au niveau des animation, il reste largement perfectible. Les graphismes sont agréables et l'immersion totale pour qui sait faire fit de quelques details de gameplay parfois agaçant. (rien de dramatique.)
Inconditionnel de jeu de rôle, foncez, vous ne serez pas déçu, c'est assuré. Bon jeu à tous.

> +/-20h de jeu sans se prendre la tête
> scénario linéaire

> On pourfend des zombies et des démons
> Thème "Sauvez la princesse"
> Même si le jeu est en ANGLAIS, il y a heureusement des sous-titres et le jeu reste sympa pour passer le temps
+ L'évolution se fait en plaçant judicieusement ses points d'expérience
+ Les choix on une incidence sur le jeu
- Côté graphisme, pour un jeu sorti en 2013, on est proche de "The Witcher" qui est sorti en 2008...

Un peu en ♥♥♥♥♥♥ techniquement, Demonicon reste un Action RPG sympathique dans l'univers de l'Oeil Noir. Les combats sont quand même un peu saoulants, surtout au début quand le héros est faible (il va falloir apprendre à faire des roulades dans tous les sens !), mais lorsque le héros a débloqué certaines combinaisons de pouvoirs, ils deviennent une formalité.

A essayer pour ceux qui aiment ce genre de jeu, à mi chemin entre l'action et le RPG. Notons que les compétences sociales ont leur utilité, et que le joueur sera amené à faire quelques choix.

Demonicon souffle le chaud et le froid. Les amateurs de la licence apprécieront l'effort réalisé par les développeurs pour leur proposer une expérience proche de ce qu'ils sont en droit d'attendre en jouant à l'Oeil Noir tout en attirant les joueurs novices en simplifiant ces règles. L'histoire est bonne et les quêtes intéressantes et matures ne mettent pas forcément en avant les combats et heureusement. Ces derniers ne sont pas jouissifs et nous sommes loin de ce que nous avait proposé le récent Mars : War Logs. Le bestiaire est quant à lui quelconque. Bien évidemment Demonicon déçoit au niveau de ses graphismes, mais il devrait tout de même pouvoir tirer son épingle du jeu grâce à sa direction artistique particulièrement sombre.

"Demonicon, c’est un jeu raté. Néanmoins, il est amusant à parcourir et si vous faites réellement abstraction de son beau millier de défauts, vous aurez une petite dizaine de qualités qui valent le coup d’oeil. Une histoire bien écrite et adulte, des talents amusants à faire progresser… Et c’est tout. C’est peu et surtout, beaucoup trop décevant de la part d’un titre qui, s’il n’a clairement pas le budget d’une grosse production, aurais au moins du avoir le droit à une finition un peu plus aboutie."
