    Hunted: The Demon's Forge

    Poor gameplay designs and execution hamper an otherwise ambitious melding of Gears of War with fantasy hack n slash RPG.

    You've heard it, I've just said it, the best comparison that you can draw to Hunted the Demon's Forge is to that of Gears of War. Sure Hunted has a nice fantasy RPG veneer but the cover mechanics, roadie run, mantling an... Read Full Review
