Sword of the Necromancer
The development team clearly understands how important is to ground players into a narrative. But they need to make sure that there's deeper integration between the world and the gameplay to create a successful rogue-lite. Right now Sword of the Necromancer is like one of its monsters, intriguing at first but quickly dropped when it no longer seems useful.
There is a soul in Sword of the Necromancer, it is clearly a game made with love and care. Unfortunately though, gameplay feels very limited and repetitive especially when compared with other, far better games. Its not really engaging to play, which is the most important aspect of a video game.

Although Sword of the Necromancer has some exciting ideas, they never fully pay off. Be sure to check out some gameplay footage first to get a feel of what this roguelike has to offer.
As a dungeon-crawling roguelike, Sword of the Necromancer is quite predictable for the genre despite its clever resurrection mechanic.
Sword of the Necromancer offers some new ideas, however they are just so minor that the game just doesn't stand out from its competition at all.

Sword of the Necromancer is a solid Rogue-Lite action RPG title that has a clever resurrection mechanic, but otherwise doesn’t do much new and different. That said, what Sword of the Necromancer does, it does pretty well and makes it one of the more enjoyable enters into the genre.
Even though this roguelike RPG isn’t above average, it does a great and welcome job in how it normalises the relationship between its main characters.
Sword Of The Necromancer wastes its one gimmick.
For a game that is so focused on telling a compelling story, the use of roguelike mechanics in Sword of Necromancer not only feels out of place but also drags the game down to a point which only the most invested or stubborn ones will reach the ending.

If you are looking for a 2D dungeon crawler with some rogue-lite options, Sword of the Necromancer might just scratch that itch, but for me the legend didn't quite live up to what I had hoped.
