Review in 100 words — Legend of Grimrock

Legend of Grimrock is a dungeon-crawler in the vein of beloved 90s classic Eye of the Beholder. You control a party of four adventurers around the prison mountain of Grimrock, and the game is laced with atmosphere to indulge your dungeon exploring urges. It has major faults though, especially… spiders! They’re tough, boring to fight, and there are too many of them. Your character choices don’t include any elves, dwarves, orcs — none of the RPG staples. And dungeon crawlers should be set underground — the inside-a-mountain setting of Grimrock makes the game feel less claustrophobic than it should.
