Culdcept Saga is, with or without dice, absolutely brilliant, and the kind of game I can see myself playing for a very long time into the future. It successfully takes a couple of different approaches to traditional board and card games, and fuses them into something that you can spend a lot of time learning to master, and feeling really good about yourself as you do.
I highly recommend you get Culdcept Revolt on Nintendo 3DS, and I very much look forward to playing a sequel soon!
All in all, Culdcept Revolt is great title for the 3DS. With a sufficient single player campaign, local and online play and plenty of cards to unlock, there is loads to do to keep you coming back for more. If your a fan of board/card games, strategy, or just a bit curious, this game is definitely worth checking out.
Even with its faults, Culdcept Revolt is one of the most addictive 3DS games that I've ever played.
Culpcet Revolt celebrates its 20th anniversary by arriving to Nintendo 3DS with a great quality game that will be a true experience for the fans of the saga and the RPG genre.

Despite its intimidating outer layer, Culdcept Revolt is something of a hidden gem that deserves the attention of anyone with an interest in card collecting, strategy, or even just board games in general. It's wildly addictive, and boasts a robust single player component as well as both local and online multiplayer to satisfy any craving for its unique, genre-blending mechanics. While Revolt's unflinching dedication to these core mechanics does hurt its story somewhat through repetition, new players will be welcomed by a wonderfully-implemented tutorial, while returning cepters have plenty of new tweaks and features to check out. It demands patience, and a lot of luck, but if you like the sound of a monster-fighting twist on Monopoly then you should take the hand you're dealt and check this one out.
I'd say that if you are someone interested in card battling games, or are looking for another in their collecting, Culdcept revolt is definitely worth a shot.
Seasoned card battlers and intrigued newcomers alike should be interested in Culdcept Revolt. Its complexity and customisability makes it one of the most replayable games in the 3DS' library, even just in single-player, while its accessible online play and well-crafted tutorial make it a perfect jumping-on point. More than just a card gaming simulator, there's plenty of care and attention poured into this; its wealth of cards and malleable multiplayer make it a genuinely viable alternative to traditional tabletop games.
The changes made in Culdcept Revolt seem very minor, but they improve the flow of matches considerably by speeding up matches and getting to the exciting parts faster. For those who haven't played Culdcept before, the improved presentation and explanations in the single-player Quest make this a great point to try it out.
Coming from someone who has spent many years playing board and card games, Culdcept Revolt does an excellent job at delivering that experience in a unique way. The constant stream of new cards and maps that are unlocked throughout the game keeps it fresh and helps with the story's pacing. As I play past the 30 hour mark, I just hope I don't have to wait another ten years for a new Culdcept title in the West.
