Critic Reviews for NECROPOLIS: BRUTAL EDITION
Necropolis: Brutal Edition is a combat-based rogue-lite game that features some interesting ideas — like a procedural Dark Souls of sorts. Execution of those ideas, however, feels uneven and is hampered by the lack of a sense of purpose and clarity. A key trait for any roguelike is to provide you incentive to try, try again. Necropolis, however, feels like a stick that’s missing that enticing carrot to keep you coming back for more.
Necropolis had a somewhat awful start, with a product that was repetitive, buggy, and very rough around the edges. The problem is that, even after its recent Brutal Edition release, many of its flaws still persist. Repetitiveness and monotony, unrewarding challenge, bugs and glitches, an unfair for soloists focus on co-operative play, and still no way to re-map the controls. Ultimately, this is simply not worth the price-tag.
While definitely a step in the right direction, Necropolis Brutal Edition still has areas that could benefit from improvement. The Brutal Edition alongside the continued support did (and will hopefully continue doing) quite a bit for bettering the Necropolis experience. However, it will most likely take some more time before Necropolis becomes a full-on recommendation.
