Acerca de este juego

The Dark Eye - Demonicon is a thrilling action-RPG set in the extraordinarily popular universe of “The Dark Eye”, a richly crafted fantasy world beloved by fantasy gamers across the globe.

The Dark Eye - Demonicon tells the tragic story of a brother and sister who become pawns of sinister forces in a world of cruelty and depravity. In this bleak yet magical world, their affection is both a blessing and a curse. Both are constantly threatened by mortal danger and demonic temptation, and must find a way through their tortured lives by facing serious moral decisions. Their common destiny will determine that of the entire continent, and will be decided by the choices they make. Hordes of fiends block their way to freedom and peace, and only through battle and magic they will truly become free of the darkness.

  • Powerful storytelling with an elaborate narrative rich with twists, as well as believable conflicts and ethical decision-making opportunities

this game starts off strong.
introduces you to the game and teaches you base mechanics such as skill point allocation, skills magic etc and has active blocking and throwing daggers etc, all in all a great start. then however once you leave the beggining area you get thrown into a desilate ugly town with reeeeeaaly boring narrative and lots i mean LOTS of it i spoke to all the boring people and SPOILER ALERT kept trying to stop the main characters sister having sex with him. thats right the first thing you have to do in the story is choose wether your going to bang your sister END OF SPOILER.
at this point id spent over an hour and a half talking crap doing fetch quests havnt progressed further.
as of now its a negative, but if i summon the inner strength to play it more it might supprise me

Me lo regalaron para reyes y no sabía ni siquiera que existía, así que pensé que sería un rpg más del montón. Pero estaba muy equivocado: nada más instalar el juego y ponerme a jugarlo, me quedé pegado hasta que me lo terminé.

No sabría decir a ciencia cierta que fué lo que me llamó del juego, pues hace mucho tiempo que lo jugué y me lo pasé. Recuerdo ciertas imágenes, como las que había entre los capítulos que eran muy bellas, con una narrativa que se sentía natural. El argumento era como una especie de mezcla entre el Diablo y el Castlevania (una combinación muy acertada) que convertía este RPG con toques oscuros en un buen juego.

Como no todo es bueno, también recuerdo que se podían hacer elecciones, pero lamentablemente no influían mucho en el juego (excepto las decisiones finales del juego, que varían el final que obtienes). Simplemente cambiaban un poco la cinemática de los capítulos y la historia que te narraba la voz en off.

Aún así, si te gustan los juegos tipo Skyrim, Dragon Age, Heroes of Might and Magic, etc., recomiendo dar una oportunidad al juego.

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.

Demonicon es un RPG de acción muy influenciado por juegos como "Dragon Age" o "The Witcher". Lo primero que notamos es que no podemos personalizar nuestro personaje ya sea en el aspecto físico como en el género, estas características están pre-fijadas y siempre será "Cairon" y siempre tendrá el mismo origen. En cuanto al rol puro, los skills y magias disponibles funcionan, y ayudan a dar dinámica a los combates, pero básicamente Cairon es un guerrero con ciertos poderes mágicos. No será un arquero, o un ladrón o un mago puro, espadas o hachas/mazas y una suerte de "estrella ninja" serán las únicas armas disponibles.
El combate es muy similar al de Dragon Age y al principio parece monótono, pero mejora muchísimo pasando la mitad del juego, donde la variedad de enemigos aumenta considerablemente. Algunas batallas son muy pochocleras, llenas de luces y efectos especiales que están muy bien.
Pero donde destaca Demonicon es en la historia, que al principio no engancha (más que nada debido a los gráficos con un acabado final desprolijo, sumado a algunas voces flojitas), pero rápidamente se vuelve más interesante y te invita a terminarlo. Lleno de decisiones que si bien no influyen mucho en el destino final de Cairon y su hermana Calandra, si cambian el camino transitado bastante y hacen que uno no pueda ver todo en un solo recorrido. Hay muchos detalles en la narración que estan muy bien cuidados como para darnos un buen grado de inmersión.
En definitiva creo que los amantes de los RPG y los juegos de accion lo van a disfrutar, pero hay que tener en cuenta que el precio base del juego es alto, vale $40? seguramente no, tiene algunos glichs y alguna cosa floja aquí y allá y la duración es corta para el género (unas 15/20 horas alcanzan para terminarlo en la dificultad normal), vale 10/12? si te gustan los RPG es más que probable que no te arrepientas de conseguirlo a ese valor.

Lo bueno:

- Una historia bien hecha, con un “lore” y contexto muy sólidos e interesantes ("The Dark Eye" tiene una historia rica detrás en el mundo de los RPG e incluso hay una muy buena cantidad de videojuegos basados en esa IP). Por momentos recuerda un poco a los Hijos de Bhaal y Baldur's Gate, incluso la hermana pelirroja y la relación con el personaje principal pueden traer a la mente a la vieja y querida Imoen. En fin, buena historia que vale la pena ser jugada.
- Combate bien logrado y árbol de skills original.
- Linda banda sonora.

Lo malo:
- NO ESTA EN ESPAÑOL -.-
- Algún acabado de los gráficos (por ejemplo, el personaje se la pasa tocando palancas para abrir puertas y demás y esa acción no cuenta con animación alguna). También suele haber algún que otro glich grafico medio molesto. Si bien en batalla los gráficos cumplen muy bien, un mod HD oficial no vendría mal para darle más vida al mundo de Demonicon, así como viene tenemos escenarios lindos y otros flojitos.
- Cero personalización del personaje, poca variedad de armas y armaduras.
- Si bien la historia se pone buena y mucho mejor hacia el final, el propio final es muy poco satisfactorio para con el jugador, no tanto porque haya o no final feliz, sino porque el desenlace a grandes rasgos es uno y da igual que hayas hecho para llegar hasta allí, lo que estaba destinado a pasar… pasa, inevitablemente.

En resumen:
Demonicon tiene muchas cosas que no le pueden faltar a un juego de rol, batallas épicas, distintos caminos que tomar, personajes bien desarrollados, puzles de todo tipo y un trasfondo extenso y sólido, pero carece de la personalizacion que caracteriza al género y tiene un final inevitable que le quita peso a las decisiones que hayamos tomado. Gráficamente tiene muy buenos momentos y otros horrendos, pero lo compensa con una historia interesante y que va ganando en ritmo conforme avanzamos por el título. A $40 no me animo a recomendarlo, pero con un 66%/75% off y si el género te gusta, no te vas a sentir estafado para nada.

Antes de comenzar esta recomendación tengo que aclarar que opino que 40 dólares este juego no vale la pena porque hay juegos mejores por menos dinero en el mismo género, con los mismos puntos fuertes y sin sus puntos débiles. Sin embargo, esta contraindicación desaparece cuando podemos comprarlo por algo tipo 12.50.

Demonicon no te da la mejor primera impresión cuando comenzás a jugarlo. Tiene unas animaciones francamente horribles, gráficamente no brilla, y las voces de los personajes dan gracia la mayor parte del tiempo.
Es como que los developers querían hacer un juego con todos los chiches pero no tenían muchos fondos, así que arrancaron a recortar y esto es lo que les quedó.

Pese a todo esto me parece que Demonicon es un juego recomendable porque la historia te engancha y te dan ganas de terminarlo para saber lo que va a pasar. El combate (bastante importante en un action RPG) es llevadero y tiene una sensación de peso, aunque no es nada del otro mundo y no puede compararse al de Kingdoms of Amalur por ejemplo.
La forma en la que nuestro personaje mejora sus poderes y habilidades es muy interesante y funciona, algo que no siempre se puede decir en este tipo de juego.
Lamentablemente lo único que se puede hacer para cambiar la apariencia de nuestro personaje es cambiarle la armadura, no hay ningún tipo de opción para cambiarle la cara, pelo, bigotes, etc (menos aún la posibilidad de jugar como una mujer)
En un juego como The Witcher esto no es muy importante, pero acá no había nada que nos forzara a tener que tomar este camino. Hablando de The Witcher, aquí también deberemos tomar decisiones entre diferentes puntos de vista que no son ni blancos ni negros, pero las consecuencias nunca serán tan drásticas como en la gran saga del mutante albino.
Demonicon no es open world, pero tampoco es necesario, porque podremos meter unas 15 o 20 horas de juego sin dramas y sin aburrirnos demasiado (al final hay un área con mucho backtracking innecesario, pero es la excepción y no la regla)

En conclusión, si te gustan los RPG en los que lo importante es la historia y no te molesta que su nivel gráfico sea relativamente pobre comprá Demonicon. Eso sí, esperá a una oferta porque a 40 dólares hay mejores cosas.

PD: Por favor no me agreguen para preguntarme cosas, no tengo nada que ver con la gente que hizo este juego y no me gusta recibir invitaciones de desconocidos.

Vale la pena y mucho, sobre todo si te gustan los verdaderos juegos de ROL , en los que los atributos tienen verdaderamente la capacidad de marcar la diferencia en la historia principal, regateo, elocuencia, estudio, destreza, etc el combate es muy fluido cuando luchas con varios enemigos a la vez, tal vez se podria mejorar un poco el sistema que diferencia el guerrero, mago, picaro... Aun asi merece la pena jugarlo, la historia esta bastante bien, y los caminos a elegir...no es totalmente lineal... le doy un 8/10
---------------------------------------------------------------000-----------------------------------------------------------

Worth much , especially if you like real games of ROL , in which the attributes truly have the ability to make a difference in the main story , bargaining , eloquence, study skills , etc. The combat is very fluid when fights with multiple enemies at once , perhaps could be improved a little the system differentiates warrior, mage , rogue ... Still worth playing , the story is pretty good , and paths to choose ... no is completely linear ... I give it a 8/10

Is the game worth $40? Hell no? Is the game worth around $10? Well that depends. Many gamers today aren't willing to invest into games that provide a mediocre experience. They only want to play games that are highly recieved. Gone are the days of going to the store and just picking out a game because the cover art looked cool. With reviews everywhere, gamers are more wary of their purchases. So I will say this, the game will not woo you. It will most likely be a forgettable experience. The controls are somewhat clunky and the animations are subpar. But is it worth your time? I say yes. Games like this reach towards the stars and fail poetically due to a lack of budget. IF you are looking for a decent Action RPG with an OK story to pass time, then I reccommend this game. If you only concern yourself with the highest quality of game out there, then I suggest you move along.

I've given this game a 'Yes' recommendation, but only if you can find it going really cheap in a deal or a sale somewhere.

So - Demonicon. It's not the worst game you'll ever play, but it's not terribly well designed, and it's kind of 'obvious' that it worked to a budget, which is a shame because it's got some nice visuals and as an RPG it manages to hit some of the right notes. It's got a lot of obvious bugs and half-finished elements, it's kind of clunky, and the story isn't amazing, and isn't really developed entirely well. I think the game tries to rely too much on the background The Dark Eye lore, which will appeal only to fans of that pen & paper RPG. The first couple of areas as well are a bit cumbersome, and it's not really that enjoyable a game to begin with.

But eventually, after about 10 hours or so, maybe? Towards the latter half of the second hub, suddenly you get a sense of... moorishness. By this time Cairon should have some better abilities & equipment, and should be levelled up to a point where he's actually slightly ahead of the curve for that area. This makes the fighting easier (but not boring), which stops some of the sluggish battles you may have had before this. Keep on top of things and this advantage can last you the rest of the game, and all in all it makes you feel like a little bit of a badass.

As an example, in a later hub section, I found myself confronted by three or four demons in armour, wielding some pretty nasty looking weapons. I was preparing myself mentally for long and difficult fight, and I ran at the first one and did that stabby move that's kind of like what Brad Pitt does in the movie Troy. The demon knight fell instantly - recovering from my momentary surprise, I repeated the move on the others, and then the fight was over. I felt like a total BOSS, and that's something that this game is kind of good at, especially in the later half.

So – all in all, if you find it cheap and are willing to put up with a rather poor start, this is one of those one-shots that can entertain you for a while. I finished the game in 26 hours, so it’s not short by any means, but it’s fairly linear for an ‘RPG’ so the story can only go on for so long.

For more information, especially about the specific mechanics of the game, check out my full review at Strategy Informer: http://www.strategyinformer.com/pc/darkeyedemonicon/reviews.html

Demonicon reminded me a bit of Dragon Age 2 because of its repetitive and dull environments. But it's a game that's understandable, a game that anyone can play. It's actually fairly good for an action RPG. Until it becomes very repetitive as far as the quests are concerned.

The character and skill upgrade systems are refreshing. They aren't perfect, but at least they allow for a lot of customization, even if half of these upgrades aren't used all that much. You earn AP by finishing quests, killing enemies, you name it. These points can then be spend on upgrades. Each skill requires 4 blocks of points before it is entirely upgraded and there are about 10 skills in total. You can also spend these points on stats like strength and you also unlock a magic system early on that uses GP which can be earned pretty much the same way, but you have to use magic while doing things.

Quests consist of kill and fetch quests and halfway through the game this becomes rather repetitive. This is also thanks to the not-all-that-exciting combat, which is real-time, by the way.
The graphics are sharp and pretty good, but the framerate drops in villages and I have no idea why. The villages aren't overly crowded and there aren't any spectacular visual effects in it either. Weird. Otherwise, the game runs well.

The voice acting isn't all that bad, even if some of the voices don't match the personalities of the characters. But then again, this is no AAA title so if we take that into account it isn't all that bad.
Demonicon didn't disappoint me because I didn't really have any expectations so if you feel the same way give it a try. But if you want a quality RPG that isn't too repetitive look further.

[Rating: 74/100]

I bought this game at a pretty hefty discount before it was released after watching trailers and reading previews. I like the game quite a bit, not at all disappointed with the purchase. I played it pretty consistently until I finished it. Overall I'd rate it a 80/100

The story is dark, set in a world plagued by demons and monsters after some sort of cataclysmic magical apocalypse. The decisions you make have very real consequences both for those close to your character and for the city where you spend most of your time.

The game system works well - clearly heavily influenced by the Witcher 2. The combat is pretty good, but slightly rough around the edges.

So should you buy this game? Depends on how much you like RPG's with dark stories, and whether or not you are willing to excuse the combat for not being as good as Witcher 2, Skyrim, Dragon Age or KOTOR 1&2.

Finally I'd like to address the "incest" thing. Clearly people were not paying attention as your character is not actually a blood relative of the possible romantic interest.

The Dark Eye Demonicon is a third person action-RPG set within The Dark Eye series, a German tabletop role-playing game that outsells Dungeons & Dragons in the German market. You play as Cairon, a young man who suddenly acquires demonic powers when his blood is mixed with the blood of his sister. Some people begin to take an interest in you, and events unfold from there. It is a fairly straightforward tale, with plenty of twists and turns that are less than shocking along the way. But it is an interesting story, and it features one of the most often used tropes in role-playing games today: moral choices.At certain points throughout the story, you have to make choices that will affect how others will view you. Standard stuff, but the best part is that you will often have no idea how your choices will impact you in the future.As Cairon explores the world, he has a few methods with which he can dispatch his enemies. Attacking with your weapon and using whatever physical skills you have is the first method, alongside throwing weapons which he can use to attack enemies at a distance. And then there is magic, which is comprised of four spells with multiple unlockable variations for each spell. Both play well, and I used a mixture of the magic and the mundane as I journeyed through the game.Alongside your combat skills are your non-combat skills such as lock-picking and legend lore, which are used to acquire and unlock additional opportunities. If you upgrade your fast talking ability for example, you will be able to obtain greater rewards for quests or avoid fights entirely in some cases. But a key detail to all of this is the way in which you use experience, or in Demonicon, AP and GP. AP is used for physical oriented skills, non combat skills and primary stats, while GP is used to upgrade your magic abilities. This is an interesting feature, as you now have to choose between upgrading your skills and upgrading your stats when you obtain experience. In theory you could turn Cairon into the least capable warrior in all existence, but in practice you will have increased everything at least moderately by the end of the game. You’ll want to level up everything at least somewhat equally, but the non-traditional character progression forces one to make careful decisions as you progress through the game.If there is one major problem that I can pinpoint in Demonicon, it would be the technical issues that pop up time and again.Textures would pop in and out when I entered conversations, the camera would often move by itself to the worst possible place imaginable during a battle and plenty of other technical glitches and bugs occurred during the 19 hours I spent with the game.With Demonicon being far from flawless, I found myself wondering whether or not I enjoyed it enough to give it a positive recommendation. Honestly, I did. Despite its issues, The Dark Eye: Demonicon remains a fun adventure that, while lacking polish, is an enjoyable journey through The Dark Eye setting.

Neither a Triple A rpg nor does it have top notch gameplay but extremely well done game nevertheless.

The Plot:
The plot is quite interesting but may put off some people, personally i love it. Its not very deep and has a few plot holes but manages to pull through. The areas in the game also ain't that big. Standard RPG formula, main plot brings the player to different places where he/she can choose to clear side quests(basically made up of kill this, collect that). Within the main plot there are crossroads where you will have to make choices and side with either faction. Without spoiling much, these choices affect that portion or area of the story but not much towards the ending. I've completed the game on my first playthrough within roughly 20hrs, minus all the afk and crash and completed almost all side quests.

Combat/Skills/Stats/Crafting:
Combat is action based not very fluid and flashy(it is a bit dull) but still passable and entertaining. Quite a limited Skill/Magic and Stats system, a far cry from other Dark Eye games and other "single character" RPGs. Again, nothing that really impressed me. Technically you can almost max them if you do grind the side quests. Crafting is very simple but kinda pointless, you don't really need the potions/buffs unless on higher difficulty.

Graphics/Soundtrack:
Looks more like a pre-2010 graphics, it looks somewhat dated therefore do not expect much on the looks of the surroudings, characters and world itself. Soundtrack is decent.

Overall, i'd give it a 7/10. Plot and the backstory premise mainly the reason i play this game for.
