    I find this one a steal for the five bucks I spent on it!

    Rated on June 05, 2008 by TrevCubsOr21

    You know this game was actually pretty cool! I picked it up at a local Game Crazy for just five bucks! The game didnt have a case, and I had never heard of it, but I still bought it, and have had some...

    Offering a healthy dose of the time-tested RPG formula, Darkstone doesn't disappoint... and it doesn't blow you away.

    Rated on December 22, 2004 by bypedd

    Darkstone is by no means the latest and greatest in terms of RPG offerings. But the appeal of a solid, hack-n-slash game can too easily be underestimated. Created in the style of Diablo and Diablo ...

    Just like Diablo but without Diablo's flaws

    Though I never played the PC version, I assume this one can't measure up given the PS limitations.

    Being a fan of RPGs since I rapped my paws around an NES controller and played all the 8-bit greats this game flew off the shelf at me when I original seen it. Another game hitting at a very poor time...

    If you're a Diablo addict, you'll love this game.

    Rated on July 18, 2007 by garey017

    If you like Diablo, you'll like Darkstone. But it doesn't really bring anything new to the table. The gameplay, characters, NPD's, levels, etc... all are just like Diablo's. Even the music in certa...

    Darkstone is a classic that was lost in the vast history of gaming. I really think they should make a sequel.

    Rated on February 26, 2006 by Crazy_Doomsday

    Darkstone...ah, the memories. A lost classic, a burned out soul, an empty clip tossed on the ground of gaming history. This is one of those games that never made it all the way. It had it...that exper...

    It intended to be a 3-D Diablo for the PlayStation, it ended up being a $9.99 disappointment.

    Rated on October 21, 2005 by Donkeljohn

    While Diablo (for the PC) was an amazing game despite faux 3-D graphics and satanic overtones, Darkstone was a pale imitation with true 3-D graphics that almost justified the time and money by followi...

    this - loading screens = one good game

    Rated on November 17, 2008 by Mavestino

    To start off, this game is much better than its gamespot score portrays. If you look past the graphics, which hardly make a difference in gameplay, and endure the long loading screens for each area, t...

    A decent RPG game.

    Rated on May 17, 2006 by Juno54

    Darkstone is an RPG for the PS1. Your job is to go around and do all these quests to lead you closer to the evil Drac (a dragon). The game allows you to select from a few classes, some of the most sta...
