What signs does the new action brawler take from foreign reviewers? Today, a new action fighting game from the world of Dungeons & Dragons from the developers of the Tuque Games studio will be released. You can look forward to our review in the near future, but in the meantime, you can look at the verdicts of foreign reviewers below.
Eurogamer Italy: Dark Alliance is an action fighting game with RPG elements. Icewind Dale has never looked so stunning. The game has a rapid decline and the fights are satisfactory. (80%)
Shacknews: Dungeons & Dragons: The Dark Alliance brings solid D&D adventures with thrilling battles and lots of monsters to defeat. Although my experience was somewhat weakened by game crashes and some minor bugs, it definitely didn't spoil the game as a whole. Dark Alliance fits well into the pantheon of Dungeons and Dragons. (70%)
Attack of the Fanboy: The Tuque Games are really lucky, as none of the mistakes contained in the Dark Alliance can destroy the final experience of this action RPG. It is a solid cooperative dungeon crawler using the cult environment and lore D&D. You'll have to get used to the fights for a while, and putting together a party is more complicated than it should be, the Dark Alliance remains a fun adventure from start to finish. (70%)
Windows Central: Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is a decent action brawler if you are looking for easy fun while chatting with friends on Discord. If you expect more depth of the story or fighting mechanisms from the game, you will probably be disappointed. (60%)
GAMES.CH: Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is not a bad game, but it's also a long way from the good. It will probably be a bit better if you play it in cooperative mode with friends, which we haven't been able to try yet. But we are sure that even then nothing will change on the average qualities of this title. (60%)
PCGamesN: The humorous concept of the Dungeons & Dragons story is not enough to balance faint battles, slow control, and dubious hitboxes of enemies. (50%)
Checkpoint Gaming: Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is not a bad game, but at the moment it seems untouched. Insufficient character development, plot, and world-building are likely to discourage die-hard D&D fans. As far as fans of multiplayer action games are concerned, the core of the title is relatively solid, but the insufficient technical processing, repetitive structure, and uninteresting loot system are likely to discourage this group of players after a while of playing. Let's hope that over time, thanks to patches and additional content, you will be able to fine-tune the experience and make it brisk fantasy hack and slash multiplayer fun. Just before playing, make sure you don't forget to take at least one friend to the party. (50%)
The Gamer: There is a tendency to recommend bad games to the most loyal fans, but I think Dungeons & Dragons fans will hate this game even more than newcomers. The salvation is that the Dark Alliance is part of the Game Pass, so it doesn't have to cost you anything to buy it. The game has potential, I just would not expect it to show in the near future. (40%)
PC Invasion: A boring and cumbersome action game plagued by poor design and technical problems. In addition, it is also generally below average and uninspired. (35%)
Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance will be released today for a budget price (CZK 999 in Xzone ) on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S. It will be available on Xbox and PC through an Xbox Game Pass subscription.
