“The "spiritual successor" to Diablo 2 that fans have been pining about for years.”

“Blow for blow, this is one of the best ARPGs in years.”
8.7 – IGN

“Grim Dawn’s the action RPG I’ve enjoyed most in quite some time, and I’m very keen to try the later chapters as they’re released. More so than Torchlight 2, which was a bit too much of a sugar rush experience for me, and certainly more so than Diablo III”

  • Friendly and Enemy Factions - Earn favor with human factions to unlock additional quest lines, vendor discounts and special faction-based items and augments. Some neutral factions you can be turned into allies but aiding one will make the enemy of another. Hostile factions will remember your deeds and deepen their hatred of you, sending out large packs and elite heroes to hunt you down.

  • Reclaim Skill Points - The ability to pay to reclaim points alleviates the fear and frustration of having to make early, uninformed skill choices that could permanently gimp a character.

'If it bleeds, I can kill it‘
Jarvis when confronted with an Aetherial that possesses a human


A world on the brink of destruction, plagued by aetherial spirits, demons and insane cult members fighting for power, awaits a hero to stop these evil hordes - welcome to 'Grim Dawn‘.

To cut the whole story short: this game is among the best ARPGs that I have played to date and provides hours and hours of fun for fans of the genre and loot-grinding in general. It has a good amount of character customization (stat and skills points, the devotion system, active and passive abilities), an atmospheric world with a 'grim' style, some good lore and background information, a good amount of sidequests and secrets and of course: tons and tons of loot.

Important points in an ARPG

At first I want to focus on some main points that are my most important requirements for a loot based ARPG game:
  • The character creation should provide a good amount of variety and depth, there should be several different characters with lots of (viable) builds, even for endgame: Check!
  • A fast-paced fighting system with interestings skills and combinations and a quite tough difficulty curve for having some challenge: Check!
  • Loot! Lots and lots of interesting and varied loot plus crafting and augmentations (that awesome stuff you need to grind for several hours because your character REALLY needs those 25 extra points of DPS): Check!
  • An interesting world with lots of atmospheric areas and some interesting lore: Check!
  • Exploring the maps should feel worthwile and sidequests, secrets areas and mysterious stuff should await courageous adventurers: Check!
  • An acceptable length plus additional difficulties and a hardcore mode to provide some long-term motivation: Check!
  • A coop mode is always a great feature because every now and then it's more entertaining to grind for stuff with others: Check!

Gameplay, builds and all the other stuff

As usual in every ARPG you run around, killing hundreds and thousands of enemies while looting every stash and treasure that you see on the screen. The fights tend to be very fast-paced and require some fine-tuning in terms of skills and equipment in higher difficulties.
Grim Dawn does many things right. There are some visually very appealing areas, the soundtrack is fantastic, the atmosphere and style is splendid and there's a lot of stuff you can kill and loot aside from the main path.

One of the most important points in an ARPG is certainly the character itself. You play with him/her for quite some time and you should be able to develop everything in the way you prefer it to fit your playstyle. Luckily 'Grim Dawn' provides a good amount of character customization:
  • At first there's a dual class character system. You can combine two of the six classes to get one of the 15 available Masteries. This allows a lot of interesting options to specialize in different skills and mechanics and trying out new combinations is a lot of fun.
  • Stat Points: Physique, Cunning, Spirit. Those are the three stats where the stat points can be allocated to. Not very special though, that’s basic stuff.
  • Skill Points: the dual class systems gives you two skill trees with several levels and lots of passive and active abilities. That way you can specialize your character in different ways. Reallocating your points is possible though.
  • Devotion: There are lots of stars on the sky and they belong to a lot of different celestial powers. While exploring the world you can find devotion shrines and by cleaning or restoring them you can get points to spend in the devotion system, another layer of character customization. There are many different signs and options that provide lots and lots of passive abilities or even new active skills.
  • Equipment: It’s an ARPG so there’s a lot of equipment for sure. The common rarities (normal, magic, rare, legendary and epic stuff + set items) wait for fearless adventurers and skillfull heroes. Some epic and legendary items even grant your character new active and passive skills. Additional special attacks or even more passive or automatically proccing skills can make quite a difference when you face some nasty bosses and enemy hordes.
  • Augmentations and Crafting: Yes, you will grind a lot for several ingredients and recipes. It will annoy you. But you’ll do it nonetheless to improve your gear even further. Add some additional damage, get some more resistances or provide other usefulls points by adding augmentations to your equipment – never say no to additional positive stats. You’ll need them. Those bosses are not known for mercy.

So much for the character customization. With two classes you can try out really interesting combinations. Should your Soldier class get some magic power as well by choosing the Arcanist and becoming a Battlemage? Or should he fight with the skills of a Nightblade, annihilating enemies with two weapons at once as a Blademaster? Your choice.

The character system is backed up by an interesting world with lots of secret areas, side quests and neat little stuff to explore and a very good atmosphere throughout the whole game.
There are also several factions that you can side with and some of them (and some sidequests as well) require some simple decisions as well: choose option A and Side B will hate you or the other way around. Nothing too special but it adds some replay value.

The story itself is (typically for the genre) solid but nothing more. The lore and the background information however are quite interesting (yes, I actually read the little journey entries) and increase the atmosphere of this mad world even more.


Of course there’s some shadow as well. The game is not always working completely stable, I had approximately 10 crashes in the hours I spent so far (funny: most of them while closing the game), though the last update reduced the amount of crashes a lot. As usual you need to grind quite a bit for upgrade materials and reputation points, the dialogue windows are somewhat ugly and… yeah that’s it.

That’s all I can think of at the moment. Compared to the game‘s positive aspects it can be ignored easily.


Whenever I start the game I play more than intended at first. Every time.
That’s a quite good sign, as the game is a lot of fun and combines several advantages of amazing ARPGs of the past while providing some neat little comfort functions (e.g. show only loot of a particular rarity or higher) and requires the player to actually read and listen to dialogues and journal entires – there are no quest markers on the world map (only on the mini map when you are close to them) and that’s perfectly fine and encourages to run through areas again.

Overall 'Grim Dawn' is among the best ARPGs that I have played so far and in combination with the mod support, the regular updates and the co-op mode it provides fun for a looong time.
Sure, there are some rough edges that could use some more polishing (.e.g the dialogue windows needs getting used to, I think it's ugly) but even now I’d gladly rate it 9 out of 10 points as it provides nearly everything that you seek in an ARPG.

Okay, that was enough talk. Time to grind! Only 16 more chipped claws to craft that little necklace. Sweet!

I recommend this title, only to true ARPG fans, with some very strong caveats. While I have had a lot of fun (and frustration) playing Grim Dawn, it's unforgivable weakness is in its late game balance.

Obviously GD draws a lot of comparisons to Diablo 2 and 3. While it is better in some regards, worse in others, as those titles, it simply does not have their longevity. I've clocked in just over 2,000 hours in Diablo 3. I have around 10% that time in GD, and I feel that I've taken it as far as I can go.

First, what is not as good as D2 and D3, as well as some other ARPGs: Loot and balancing.
I have ran 4 different builds to the point I simply couldn't get any further. The difficulty settings of D3 is what allows for endless gameplay. In GD you start on Normal (with an optional Veteran difficulty that I honestly could not tell the difference except that there was less loot), then unlock Epic after completing the campaign, then unlock Ultimate after completing it on Epic. That's it, 3 difficulties, 3 times through the campaign, done. With level cap at 85, and no further options to continue playing, the game basically stops itself. However, of my 4 different builds, only one made it to the bitter end. And this is what I'm talking about balance here. What makes Epic and Ultimate more difficult is primarily the reduction of your resistances. So basically, you just die more often, xp becomes a grind, common minions often one-hit you out of nowhere, and some bosses (the trapped-in-a-box, no-retreat bosses) are simply unbeatable without the right build and very specific resistances. All that wouldn't be so bad, IF the game's claim that more difficult = better loot. But in over 200 hours of playing, I can tell you that it's just not true. If anything, I consistently got less good loot, but lots more junk loot. In every case, I was using the same equipment for 20 or more levels at a time for lack of getting anything better. Obviously, this is untenable when the monsters level with you. And the best gear I had was purchased, not looted. Over the course of 4 builds to Ultimate, up to levels 65 and 75 on average, I accumulated a sum total of 9 Legendary items, mostly unusable because of high requirements, or simply not as good as the epic items I already had from 20 levels ago. What this means is that I got rich, with just over 3 million iron bits on my final character, but with nothing worthwhile to spend it on. So yes, GD is miserly with the good loot. Not a good feature when we all know that ARPGs are all about the loot. Even after the latest patch, I did a test run from middle to late Ultimate, and only got one legendary; the same gun that the Warden drops every time. Well I already had 3, thanks anyway. One could put the loot, or lack thereof, down to bad luck, but after 4 playthroughs, I can reasonably claim it's the system.

Now, what makes GD better than D3: Character builds and skills.
In D3 you get what you get as far as skills, they will be the same skills every time, they unlock at certain levels and at higher levels you can choose between them. That's it. This is the weakest point of D3. It sucks. GD has taken a step back with skills, more in line with D2, and allowed you to choose skills, then build on those preferred skills. And the passive skill tree is actually a constellation of skills that unlock new abilities or new attributes that you can then attach to whatever skill you prefer. This system allows for a high level of customization and control in your build, and is where GD really shines. Other good qualities are the lore, which is enough to keep you reading the notes, and the faction system. Factions are probably the best innovation to set GD apart from others in the genre.

One other detractor worth mentioning: Performance.
Even on lower settings, with reduced resolution, I constantly got lags and hitches, little micro-freezes. The gameworld is graphically nice, nothing extreme, so I think the problem is with distant LODs. It's as if the engine is trying to render too much at full detail, even long distance views and off-screen terrain. And shadow rendering seems to be glitched. They only look normal on higher settings. At medium and lower settings, the shadows glitch in a frenzied flashing of black triangles. Also, the game almost always freezes on exit, requiring alt-tab-del and a system reboot. This is extremely irritating and almost unforgivable in modern games.

In summary, Grim Dawn is a ton of fun for the true ARPG fan. Just trying out the different builds and hybrid classes is what makes it worthwhile. However, the miserly loot system and terrible late game balance gives it a short shelf life. My hours in GD had many frustrating moments where I nearly quit for good. But the character options kept me coming back to try again... with the same results. Certainly, D3 had a much bigger budget and amounts to pure candy for the ARPG fan, while GD is grittier, tougher, less rewarding. D3 has longevity, you can literally play forever. But GD got the most crucial part right that D3 got wrong; the role-playing. And that has made it worth playing.

Bias: I am a dinosaur. I like to loot and smash things.

This is probably one of my favorite games I have played this past year. Graphics, story and action were all very interesting and intense. I will admit I have placed 30+ hours in the game, I still enjoy playing it - still have not finished it completely on solo. I do have a second character I did start with a friend, which took a bunch of those hours as well.

The game allows for different builds of characters, which can allow for replay-ability with different formats - with melee based, assassin-esque based, mage based characters. Cool feature is the ability to play as a dual class. Which allows for different combos and sets. There is an ability to respec as well via an NPC if you decide to reformat, so you can choose a different format if you find you are having issues.

There are wide range of merchants that usually have the best stuff if you are able to friend a town, faction to the max. You can also hit certain areas again for possible drops, to help improve your weapons and armors. In addition, there are different gems to upgrade abilities of weapons - from shooting fireballs or causing poison damage.

I personally, have nothing to complain about the game. I personally wish I had more time to play.
I would give the game a 10/10, as it is one of my favorite games from this year.
I do hope they create a sequel or even extend the universe more.

This is not Diablo 3 and it is its best point ever.

D3 where everything is streamlined, you are garantee to have loots for your class and chances for dropping lengedaries are fairly reccurent. Grim Dawn doesn't do that.

It's back to the roots of Diablo2 where you WILL collect tons of crap but suddenly get super excited that you droped a specific loot. You will hoard tons of stuff for your other characters "just in case".

Also, a point I love above all, I don't freaking have to be connected to Internet to play. It helps for Steam Cloud save, but it's by far not mandatory. You won't have game server crash on you because it's unstable, you won't have your instance suddenly go poof while playing because the lag spike.

This is a game for the ppl who liked D2 and disliked what D3 had become.

Plus, multiclassing is quite fun, there are 5 classes and you can mix and match 2 of them. Wanna play a summoner tanker ? Go ahead ! A master of the arcane shamanist ? Sure ! Is all build optimal ? Nope but still you can go and have good 'ol fun with them.

There are games that are too boring to finish, some your glad when you finally finish them and the best ones you are sad when you finish them. This one is the latter.
With so many Diablo type games out, I did not expect alot from this one. I was wrong. It offers so many ways to customize your character. The story is good and the game play is excellent.

Grim Dawn has all the best elements of an old-school aRPG game, with some new mechanics to keep it fresh. There is never a slow, dull, or boring moment with plenty of content from the Main Quest Line to numerous side quests. The environment is interesting, the classes are fairly archetypal but with a fresh spin, and the hunt for loot keeps you hungry for progression. The character class customization is one of the best, the system allows for dual classing which creates a hybrid class, this allows for a multitude of build designs. The pace is great and there's enough play diversity to offer plenty of replayability, it's a great mix of challenge and depth. In addition to the main and side questing there is a faction system. There are several factions with their own interests in the Grim Dawn world as you develop reputation with them they will offer special faction related bounty quests. Grim Dawn has a robust crafting system and it is always a rush when you discover a rare blueprint for an item. Grim Dawn is a great game and I highly recommend it.

An Action RPG
+ The gameplay is a ton of fun, espeically if you are a fan of ARPGs like Diablo, Path of Exile, etc. TONS of enemies to slaughter, challenging bosses to face, dungeons to explore, loot to find, and an epic journey to complete.
+ A very dark and gruesome atmosphere that really helps to emerse you into the world. Lots of demonic / satanic themes.
+ While having co-op features, Grim Dawn is primarily a single player focused game which to me is a good thing. Everything seems to scale around your level as you progress, and every battle seems to be scaled well in difficulty.
+ An OVERLOAD of content. You can easily invest 50 hours+ and still crave more! Feels fresh from start to finish.
+ The game is very challenging, especially if you choose to play on Veteran difficulty early on. This makes your enitre playthrough feel very rewarding from start to finish.
+ Lots of hidden areas and secret dungeons / bosses
+ At no point did it ever feel like a "Grind" even while playing on Veteran difficulty.
+ There is weight to every attack, and enemies will literally go flying back, dismembered, with loads of gore.
+ Large enemy variety which keeps the game interesting. Seems like every area / cave has something new waiting for you to slay.

- The story...unfortunetely falls short. It's almost not even worth paying attention to once you get a few hours in. (probably due to a lack of cutscenes / story moments)
- You can not reset master points. You can easily screw up your build if you invest too many points in mastery over your skills.
- Just a small note, but instead of gold the currency in the game is "iron"... personally...this just did not feel as rewarding
- For the most part, you only use one or two combat skills throughout the game as it's typically a waste of points to invest in others until late game especially considering you must level them up far enough to be worth while.

This is a highly recommended game. I love all the aspects of this game except for one flaw I'm having, The wireless 360 controller has a problem mantaining it's sticky keybindings. Don't know if this just my issue or a bug in controller options.
But overall this game is well mantained and lots of fun and grinding of course.

Did Diablo 3 took your lunch money and stomped on your childhood memories?

Look no further. This ARPG is the best I had played since old school Diablo 2. No Hello Kitty Island Adventures graphics (Diablo 3/Torchlight) but with a darker and serious yet unique gore art direction. I can't deal with cartoonish graphic that Blizzard seems to go for.

Moreover you can customise your character build as much as you want and not limited to Blizzards skill system that a 1year can design. The dual class as well as old school of skill and stat points are found in Grim Dawn. They further expand the customisation with Devotion points which you have to unlock and you can level the devotion skills and assign them to your minions or skill too!

Did I just mention minions? The minions in Grim Dawn are actually useful unlike Diablo 3's minion which seems to serve aesthetic purposes only since they just tear like paper.

Crafting system is quite simple yet purposeful (you can use your materials for crafting or imbued it into your gear) and I love that they gave you a lot of inventory space to hoard your loots. Character progression never seem to miss the mark. Even if you finish 'Normal' difficulty, there are other devotion skill points to be unlock on other difficulty modes. The amount of tender loving effects put into the game is amazing, I might have epilepsy with all the things going on sometime during a big fight.

Most ARPG seems to have the bread but missing the nutella topping, Grim Dawn delivers both. Definitely a well made game and you should give it a try.

The game is decent in single player although there are quite a few annoying bugs and the user interface is quite inconvenient at times. Overall it's a game with good ideas but that lacks a lot of polishing.

The experience in multiplayer is really bad though, both when playing co-op with friends or in public games. There are always connection issues, random display bugs (e.g. other players' character are not displayed but are still in the game) and even finding a multiplayer game is a tedious task. Mainly it's because of the UI that doesn't provide any kind of quick matchmaking and the game server filters are reset every time you start a multiplayer game.

The "matchmaker" server is actually down from time to time and the developers seem to be only aware of this when people report problems in the forums. And even then, if it happens on a Friday you can expect that nobody will fix this (or post any update) until the next Monday. :(

By far one of the top games I have ever played. I can see myself logging hundreds of hours on this as I already have 25 within two weeks of owning it and I am not the slightest bit bored or dissapointed. The gameplay is fantastic and like many others have said forms the perfect blend between many well known ARPGs. I have started up 3 different characters so far each of a different class and I enjoy playing each of them equally, theyre simply all a blast to play. The difficulty the game has to offer is great, currently I only have Veteran unlocked but my Buddy and I are going through the game on it and it creates some intense moments. The loot is varied and has in my opinion the best drop system I have seen in a game in a long time. What I mean is the rare items drop at just the right intervals, you dont need to spend hours farming to find good loot but that doesnt mean it drops so often that it takes the fun and excitement away. While I have not yet seen any of the top tier legendary items (they drop at 50 and my highest level is 35) I can say that the variety of loot and the unique skills / attributes you can find really make the games replay value shoot through the roof. Im constantly finding items that completely change or even define the build im working on and thats great. Overall, I am enjoying everything about this game, the story, the atmosphere, the gameplay, the multiplayer, the singleplayer, I literally cannot think of one flaw.

Shoutout to Lord Lulz for buying this game for me, best thing I've ever gotten for free

It's ok. It doesn't do anything wrong, but at the core it's a very generic loot based ARPG. Really, that's all. If you've ever played a loot based ARPG, you've played this game. After 6 hours I was just bored, it didn't seem to be evolving or adding new complexity or really doing anything.

The music is fine, but not memorable. The setting could have been interesting but is washed back in the bland execution. The story is a normal one (you were effected by great force now you are the 'strange one' who can use that great force).

Currently it costs 25$; for 10 more you could buy the 'utlimate' version of Diablo 3 with all the content. Or you could play path of exhile for free. If you're just bored with this two, and happen to love this style of game, then maybe it's for you. Otherwise...try those instead.
