What Gamespot Users have to say about FATE

  • Review Score:8.5

    A charming fantasy hack-n-slash that is surprisingly addictive and crawling with content.

    I first played this game when I got it as a demo on my first computer years ago, and since then I've been 'hooked', in the sense that I can come back to this game and get something new out of it every time. ~ There is ... Read Full Review

    Cheap - addictive - fun - high replayability

    Fate is a mindless action RPG in the Diablo mold. It doesn't make any pretense of having a serious plot or any real character or story depth. It is only an "RPG" because you gain levels and experience. However, it set... Read Full Review

    Getting closer to the NetHack ideal.

    Way back in the earliest days of computer gaming there was this game called "NetHack". Based on an even older game named "Rouge, it was an almost infinite random dungeon crawl with ASCII graphics (your character was repr... Read Full Review

    Great Monster bashing fun!

    Although the game lacks an assortment of different locales( towns,lands and so forth) to visit it still makes up for it in good old monster bashing fun. It does get a bit dry returning to the same town and talking to th... Read Full Review

    Too much like Diablo

    Good Things: Graphics Bad Things: It's way too similar to Diablo 2. After playing for about 10 minutes, I realized that it's gameplay was just like Diablo. Now if you never played Diablo 2 before, you won't unders... Read Full Review

    It's Diablo 1, but better.

    Fate gets a lot of gruff because many people malign it for being a Diablo clone. To be fair, it is a Diablo clone, but it's a Diablo clone done right. To those that haven't played any offering in the Diablo franchise... Read Full Review
