    A blast from the past that stands up to and exceeds modern gaming standards. A genre worth revisiting.

    Old school Dungeon Crawler that harks back to the wonderful delights of Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder.

    Legends of Grimrock, what the hell is that? My first thought as I clicked on the link. To my utter surprise this appeared to be a leap back in time to the wonderful dungeon exploration days of Dungeon...

    Nostalgic, grid-based, dungeon romp with decent graphics.

    Rated on April 21, 2012 by PooManChu69

    In the official forums, this game is called a clone of 'Dungeon Master.' Admittedly, I have never played that game, but 'Legend of Grimrock' does remind me of dungeon crawling in the 'Phantasy Star'...

    A game this good for $15?! Unbelievable! Wizardry, Dungeon Master, and Eye of the Beholder for the 21st century!

    I started playing computer games right about the time Wizardry I came out on PC, way back in the early 80's. Wizardry spawned a generation of dungeon-crawling RPGs that died out in the early to mid 90...

    Rewarding blast from the past with modern wrapping

    Rated on April 18, 2012 by Blue_Tomato

    I love RPGs, but one of my recurring issues with modern role playing games is how they focus more and more on the wrapping, and less and less on the game elements. The tendency seems to be to take mor...

    An homage to a classic which is destined to become a classic in its own right.

    OK, so when I first heard about Legend Of Grimrock I was skeptic in how this was going to play. But not anymore! The moment you start it up and are staring at the main menu it immediately brings you b...

    Legend of Grimmrock mixes the fun of the good old time dungeon crawlers with the excitement of real-time controls, the good feel of rune-magic, a new way of using a team and a evolving environment tha...
