Stranger of Sword City is not for the faint of heart. Players who aren't willing to die and slowly come to grips with its systems as they struggle against its infinite difficulty spikes need not apply. Having said that, Revisited presents a more palatable and fully realised vision of an already standout dungeon crawler.

Over the past several years, DRPG developer Experience has become one of the leaders of the genre. With titles like Stranger of Sword City Revisited it's easy to see why. The original game was already quite good, so Experience took all of the feedback to heart to craft a thoroughly enhanced version. The changes make the adventure more accessible, yet at the same time they don't push away fans of the original; in fact, there are now more options to consider and new challenges to overcome. All in all, while Escario is a pretty lousy vacation destination for working on that tan, it's still a thoroughly fantastic city to spend a lot of time in.
