Lets try this one more time. I triple checked no broken constants now, should work just fine in game and out.

Waking up today was my biggest misstake. What a failed day.

After playing trough the normal mode i'd say for 59 cents it's alright. It's a fun little side game you can play once in a while with some Diablo 2 nostalgia attached to it. The only sad thing is that the lat 3 acts and 50% of the classes are locked behind dlc which would cost you about an additional 6 Bucks. Sadly the game also has plenty of bugs like as necromancer your summons getting stuck in non accesible areas even npcs get stuck once in a while. Also the game crashed when trying to close. Anyway: For 59 cents? Sure why not. For 5.99+DLC? No.

TL;DR
+ the game is ok
- the dev have/had a questionable update and pr policy
- the 0 tolerance against cheaters Dev ended up getting VACed
- followed by cencorship and banning people in the forums without giving real reasons or explanations*

*to be fair, he tried to explain himself but I still have no sufficient reason
But please read the whole review, to unterstand my standpoint. (WoT inc.)

another user about this game: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198012878741/recommended/269210/


DISCLAIMER: My english sucks. sry, but I had to write this review ;)
I owned this game for a long time, the summer sale reminded me to write a review about it.
Not only have I played this game, but I also spent hours in the forums and got to know the dev behind the game.

positive
First I have to say, that i like this kind of games. The first hours where really fun to play and back then, new updates where coming from time to time. (atleast in the beginning)
Later the game was a bit of an grind, but many gameplay mechanics have changed since, so maybe this isn't true anymore. There where new and creative ideas and the community and devs seemed very nice at first.

negative
Now to the negative part and why I wouldn't recommend this game.
First thing are the updates. Now It seems like they are updating this game again, but before they had a slightly different update policy.
Back then they concentrated more on releasing DLC and didn't cared much about fixing major bugs. The last time I played this game they wheren't caring about bugfixes at all.

This isn't the most significant point and probably I would even have given this game a good rating but here is the reason why I didn't:

the dev(s)
At first he seemed very nice (back then it was mostly VeXoriaN, who replied in the forums).
I had a few discussions on the forum. One was about anti cheat and how they handle it.
In the veginning, everyone seemed very objective and logic, but after some times, things got heated up.

People where constantly swearing at each other (=toxic community (atleast in my eyes))

The dev was always talking about how he is 100% against cheaters. And how strict he's about it.
And then.., once there came the day where, the dev got VAC banned.

After that, his behaviour drastically changed.

1. He immediately switched the dev account for the game so none would see the ban.
2. He deleted many threads and re created them with the new account to get the old one out of the system
And also to hide his and other peoples old discussions about cheating.
3. He closed (nearly) all threads, so no one could comment about the incident without going off-topic
4. When creating threads about it, with completeley objective, non offensive posts, he cencored (/deleted) them right away
5. Even threads, asking about the cencorship got deleted in minutes
6. He even banned people (including me) from the forums for demonstrably no reason.*
And even after a Steam-Moderator asked him to atleast add a reason to the ban, he only gave a short insufficient answer, not answering any questions.

Hopefully you can now understand better why i can't recommend this game.
Hopefully this review doesn't get deleted in seconds. (Back then, they did all to keep their reputation up.)




For the ones, really interested in the accounts, here you go.

I think I'm not hurting any of these rules.
These accounts are/where dev accounts. They are more the public representation of the company than their 'private' user-accounts.
So posting them shouldn't be a problem.


conclusion
I finally want to close this. This review is my summary of the whole topic and how I think about it.
Other people, other pinions..

However, in spite of all that, they still are nice game(s), keep it up Vex :)

I stopped playing the game when I got to the point where tiny invisible pellets that I could not see among all of the gore dealt a trillion damage to you. I wouldn't be giving this game a negative review if those things were actually visible and not so damn cheap. Completely ruined the gaming experience for me time after time after time after time.

What makes it even worse it is something they can't even fix, I'm not joking, the damage bug is like hard baked into the code, so when you gain super high health the enemies damage is upped as well, to an unimaginable amount, which is something they have been proven not able to fix. They still haven't been able to fix placing projectiles above all the sprites so that you can see them. Devs need to go back to school and learn Game Maker all over again.

This game has potential, yes. And initially, I really liked it.

So it is quite sad to see that so much potential is simply wasted by such a sloppy bug and change management.
Taking into account that the developer team is quite small I can live with some minor bugs.

What I cannot accept, however, is the amount of serious, unnerving bugs which occur although the game has been released in January 2014.

There seems to be no "stable branch" and "nightly branch" support for this game like e.g. Starbound offers.

Vexorian says (quote):

"We have sat down to read the most "helpful" reviews which are mostly negative since there have been problems in the game. We really worked hard and took action to fix all those, and have managed to iron them out! "

Some bugs I found in yesterday's build :
- coins have the same value (1 Gold)
- characters in multiplayer get mixed up
- game terminates to main screen without explanation
- there are numerous issues regarding synchronization of multiplayer games (e.g. in crypts when solving the puzzles with movable pillars, when entering dungeons, etc.).
- mutliplayer has been taken offline due to bug fixing / testing today


So, IMHO the problems have not been ironed out at all. I wonder why such a patch is even released where it certainly could not have been tested throughly. I cannot shake the feeling that paying customers are treated as pre-alpha testers.

It is really sad, because many good ideas have found their way into this game already.

Sorry, but all things considered I have to give this a "thumbs down".
Maybe my opinion will change when the game has finally become more stable.

I liked this game a lot, and it would be one of my go to games to play around and have fun in; i even learned everything necessary to play with my friends online: then they added a new mechanic, mana. Having a mana bar instead of just cooldowns on abilities made all the characters i had fun playing nearly useless. Even now characters that are focused around abilities are terrible in comparison to the ones who have passive damage after x amount of attacks. It makes the game a lot less fun, and variety is almost non-existant. If there was a way to go back to what it was i would in a heart beat.

Disclaimer: I purchased this game using my own funds, and I do not write a review on a game that I have not paid for myself, because I believe they should be fair and unbiased. I don't believe you can get that unless you invest your own funds and support developers, and provide a personal sense of "value".

This is a great rogue-like hack and slash title that is sure to waste some free time. If you are a fan of Diablo, World of Warcraft, Torchlight, The Binding of Isaac, Fate, Legend of Zelda and many others, you will have some fun with this, as you can see elements of each game brought into this in their own unique ways. You have skills and talents to level up to further make your character unique, as you progress through various acts, all with unique background layouts that are quite fun. The comments your character makes from time to time are fun, and in 3 hours didn't get old or too overused to detract from gameplay. It has relics you collect that further enhance your skills as you play, all with unique effects. And hey - Trading Cards! Achievements!

I originally bought this game on sale for $2 and with that being said, is probably where the price point should be. The DLC is also way overpriced for the content that it delivers. While I fully appreciate the time and effort and creativity that these developers put into this game (and they *are* active), I experienced quite a few glitches with online play in just 3 hours. I also found the UI to be a bit un-intuitive, and it takes a short while to figure out how things work. But once you do, play progresses rather smoothly.

There are quite a few regular glitches (that they are currently working on), but I really feel it has earned its very positive rating. It really does have quite a bit going for it!

I can't speak much for single player play, as my experience thus far has solely been multiplayer, and aside from the glitches, I would recommend this game on sale. It has its own unique charm and blend of so many elements, the fun it provides was well worth the $2 I spent. When the bugs get worked out, and the price of the DLC drops to maybe $.99 each, I might put some more time into it. Honestly, we may just play it again a little more tomorrow....it was pretty fun.

At $5.99 I would not purchase this game in its current state. Once all the bugs are worked out, and if the DLC gets included into that price, it would be a solid buy. If you catch it on sale, though, it will be a much better value.

The game is pretty fine and has nice potential. Altough I have a few gripes with the devs. Multiplayer is fairly unpolished, with some bugs in different forms, but single player and local coop are significantly better. I am annoyed at some changes in some updates. For example, replacing the paladin's tri-hammer skill with a nearly useless single hammer skill. This is one of my biggest gripes as the paladin has been and still is one of my favourite classes but it is so annoying to use holy hammer and remember how awesome the skill used to be. Regardless I reccomend this game to any looking for a nice single/ local coop hack n slash game.

Game is a lot of fun. Can't go wrong for the price.

The DLC is a bit over priced for what it's worth, and without it you're basically playing the "Demo" of the game.


The game is far too heavily reliant on gear though, which is a shame. I went from having a +15, to +86, to a +2000 damage weapon within 10 levels, kind of explosively exponential growth.

The game is still trying to find itself long after it has released. I want to love this game but I feel like it's shifting around too much and pushing the 'extra' content which I am not sure I want to pay up for. The gameplay can get quite monotonous at times, there's not too much of a shake-up of playstyle. It's so close to being brilliant and yet never completely hooks me.

Some helpful review over there, I promise.
Black Ops 3 is worth 60 euros.
Hero Siege is worth 0.59 euros. On sale.
Let's think about it.
It means that you can get 101 copies of Hero Siege for 60 euros.
Now let me ask you, would you rather BO3 or 101 copies of Hero Siege?
The decision is pretty much made for you.
