Dice Legacy does have some interesting ideas under its belt, and I’m excited to keep exploring the various strategies and play styles that its robust tech tree has in store. I find the experience quite taxing with how much improvisation and compromise it demands, so I’m saving it for a time where I’m in the mood for careful, organised play. If the idea of a strategy game with an unusual twist piques your interest, Dice Legacy is a great game to pick up – on PC. As enjoyable as the game is, the poor optimisation means Switch owners would do well to look elsewhere.

If you have read this review up till now, I thank you, you will probably have guessed by reading the review that I am not about to give Dice Legacy a really high score. The UI and the game’s lack of a proper tutorial need a lot of improvements to receive a higher score than..

Dice Legacy is a cute quirky game. The basic mechanics, founded on randomness and dices, are just that, a quirk: the gameplay is, in the end, not that innovative, but the strategical experience is solid and makes for a good, if light on content, city builder-roguelike game.

I can't fault Dice Legacy's style, but this deckbuilding puzzle game disguised as a city builder is mostly an exercise in furious, tooth-grinding frustration.

Overall, Dice Legacy is a fun stress machine that borrows the better parts of other genres. While it doesn’t always do everything well or necessarily telegraph its harder ideas ahead of time, it can be a tense thrill when you get further than you have before. Never before have dice been featured in a game where they’re the biggest thing that matters. If you like rolling dice then I compel you to check out this mash up. Just be ready for the challenge ahead of you.

Under its air of small indie game, Dice Legacy offers us a fichtrement addictive home gameplay. Mechanics entirely focused on dice roll, and therefore, randomness, forcing us to think about each of our actions. With its challenge and atypical gameplay, there is no doubt that the app will delight players looking for experience off the beaten track.

Dice Legacy is a competent strategy/survival game with some neat and well-implemented ideas; the random element is there, but generally easy to handle, and good planning trumps sheer luck. However, it isn't particularly rich in content, and it might get grindy if you're aiming for the hardest difficulties.

Dice Legacy is an interesting take on city builders, but not every aspect of the game falls into place.

Dice Legacy tries to serve up a meaty roguelike/RTS hybrid, but the shallow, repetitive gameplay loop will leave you asking, "Where's the beef?"

It does not ask us as much complication as a Civilization or a Humankind. It also doesn't have as many options as a Theme-whatever. But of course, his strategy is very intense. The games are fast, direct and we will have to take into account millions of things when carrying out the mission of the scenario.
