So Legend of Grimrock is pretty great. And I've never really played any of those old school dungeon crawlers before. Bascially the kingdom of this world thinks that an appropriate pardon is to throw you into a mountain full of monsters and say if you survive you're free! Doesn't exactly seem fair now does it.
I'm enjoying it rather a lot, but I'm probably playing a bit more paranoid than I need to. The game isn't trying to kill me quite around every corner so I should probably give it a bit of slack. That isn't to say there aren't traps and places where skeleton legionaries don't come out of walls to stab you. Just that they're a bit more dispersed than I've given them credit for.
The combat ends up being pretty tactical and methodical because every one of your weapons has a pretty significant cooldown and the enemies attack a lot faster, so you're often going to be moving up to an enemy doing your attacks and then repositioning. That of course leads to situations where you're out numbered and you're essentially just trying to funnel them into a corridoor to hit them one at a time or dragging a slow enemy out into an open area so you can move around and just hit him at all angles while he's too slow to attack you.
Anyway apoligies for the echoiness of the video, something went wrong when I was recording it. I'm looking into changing my recording setup so if you have any recommendations for microphones/headsets let me know. I'm pretty sure that it was only an issue because I'm an idiot rather than something being wrong with my equipment. Off topic. You should get Legend of Grimrock, it's a cool game.www.grimrock.net
