    If you'd clone Diablo, then at least copy the good parts!!

    Like what I've said, this is a rip-off from the famous Diablo game. Instead of choosing a particular hero class, you get to control a bunch of all-time classical Japanese warriors like Ninjas, Samurai...

    This game isn't horrible, but I couldn't recommend this game to anyone.

    I really was not too impressed with Throne of Darkness. It's not that bad of game, and it did keep me entertained for a few hours, yet it does nothing to make me want to play it again. Throne of...

    Under the Shadow of Diablo

    Please do not let this game fool you because it is similar to Diablo. It's good, but nowhere near as good as Diablo.

    This game is HARD. It also sucks very bad most of the time. It's very disappointing. The graphics have a nice 2d feel to it, but when you put on armor or weapons on your characters, nothing really cha...

    A Diablo clone offering some new takes on the well known formula

    Rated on June 04, 2006 by grantcorp

    Throne of Darkness plays much like Diablo but has some new takes on the gameplay, mainly by making you head honcho over a team of seven warriors, out of which up to four can be present on the screen a...

    The time I spent playing this game speaks for itself.

    Overlooked and highly underrated.

    Rated on July 12, 2011 by zer0_Sygnal

    When I bought Throne of Darkness many years ago, I had never heard of it. Infact, I found it in a bargain bin. I happened to have a little extra cash, so I took a gamble. But I love Japanese culture a...
