Critic Reviews for Despot's Game: Dystopian Army Builder

This game is a great time, with a couple minor caveats. If you don’t mind the random, roguelike nature of the combat, then you’ll love it. If you’re playing on PC, you’ll love it even more. The writing is snappy, the action is fast-paced, and the character designs are terrific. I had a hard time grappling with the roguelike elements, however. There’s certain patience this sort of system demands of you, and I don’t have enough of it. On the other hand, if running experiments on hapless humans in dank dungeons appeals to you, take heart! Despot’s Game will be right up your alley.

Despot's Game is an unusual combination of genres that adds something fresh to the scene. It's fast-paced and enjoyable in short bursts, with upgrades that help keep things interesting. The randomized runs won't be for everyone, but they're fun while they last, despite a lackluster control scheme.

Despot's Game: Dystopian Battle Simulator captivates with its uncommon mechanics' mix and amuses with its appropriate meta-modern entries.

Despot’s Game: Dystopian Army Builder is a very interesting blending of genres that helps bring something new to auto battler games. However, its mixing brings far less to the rogue-lite genre, so fans of titles like Hades or Cult of the Lamb will only want to pick it up if they are big fans of auto battlers.

Despot’s Game is perfect for when you’re looking for something with strategy as well as a good laugh. While it’s not a game that will take up a lot of your time, it can be nice to poke your head into a couple of dungeons for an hour or so.

Despot’s Game: Dystopian Army Builder is a really fun if slightly flawed strategy game that I’m glad I decided to check out. While it’s not something I might recommend to most for a purchase it is definitely worth trying out on Game Pass if you are subscribed.

Despot's Game is a cruel rogue-lite set in a dystopian world. Search the labyrinthine world as you appease a sick voyeuristic monster. Command your army, set their formation, and watch each automated encounter. It is brutal, unfair, and guaranteed to make you scream.
