The gameplay of Diablo (2), the art asthetic of Starcraft (2) and the plot of Dead Space (1). You are a space hero, responding to a distress signal from a space mining ship because... well, it's not really explained, you just are. Anyway you find out in short order that some kind of space plague has turned everyone into space zombies and you pretty much have to kill them all.
This game is actually better looking that I expected, but unfortunately it falls flat in terms of gameplay, which is sadly rather bland. The level up and equipment systems are both very basic and uninteresting. Left-click is used for move, attack, interact, and pickup, which can be problematic if you mis-click, and some of the pickups, particularly ikarium, which serves as the 'gold' of this game, is actually quite tiny to click on.
Overall an average game. Could be good for a few hours of fun on a train for instance. But if you're looking for a good ARPG and have an internet connection I would recommend Path of Exile instead, which is pretty much better all-around.
