I used to play this as a free trial on my old desktop, it came with those crappy windows games. I think i would have spent about 600 hours on it back then.

Isometric action-RPG dungeon crawler. A bridge between Diablo and Torchlight. Everything we have in the Torchlight we have because of this smooth project... And Fate itself is based mostly on the Diablo Hellfire best patterns.

If you're familiar with the Torchlight (and I guess you are), then you'll know everything the Fate got from the first sight.
Cartoon-styled graphics. Mild music, yet reminiscent to Matt Uelmen tracks. Very basic RPG elements but rich grinding system, making you constantly looking for more power-ups and new guns, which will be bigger and brighter... And many-many randomly generated levels (over 2 millions, and that's not a joke). Basically, you can keep playing in the Fate year by year and still be far from its depth (that's what Diablo 3 is only dreaming to be).

Comparing FATE to all other "Diablo killers" and especially Diablo 3 itself may not be the best idea, though. While generally all those games, would that be the Diablo itself, Titan quest, Sacred (etc.) - have some story on the plate, you can't say same thing about FATE. It is so random in every point, that even the main quest is not stable, and will be procedurally generated and different for any player. You'll not get any background there but only the very basic: you have a town with some folks, half of them will be traders or item randomizers, while other half will be sending you on some irrelevant quests. And all the quests in the game will be like "reach the level X and kill the monster Z" or "Bring me an item Y from level X".

Now, the main question: should you buy it? Yes.

Point one: it is good for any dungeon crawler fan. Hardly FATE can take your heart now, with all new titles like Van Helsing or Bastion (or dozens of others), but still it provides a very solid gameplay. A lot of challenge awaits!
Point two: even if you are not so deep in dungeon crawlers, but making numbers on Steam (would that be score of games in possession or achievement statistics, or both) - it is a good buy (especially with discount, of course). To make a gold on achievements, you'll probably need less than 5-6 hours.
Finally, this game has very high valued cards, so you have a good chance to buy the game and even make some money back on top of it!

Overall, it's not a hit or something you can't live without, but it's a very good pick. My mark 7.5/10

This is personally one my favorite games of all time.
Fighting mechanics are great and summoning minions is actually very helpful unlike some games.
The designs for each floor and the enemies were all worked on very well (for the time) plus the endless gameplay is actually endless, but very difficult.
