Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem's lack of polish detracts from the great hack-and-slash ARPG found at its core.

All in all, as a Diablo fan you really can't go wrong with Wolcen. Yes, the game still has its quirks and the online mode also has to settle down a bit. But it looks beautiful and both the skill system and the fights know how to please. And for a price of around 30 euros you have a lot for your money. So despite the problems, I can only recommend Wolcen - Lords of Mayhem.

After a somewhat bumpy start and some patches that were quickly pushed in, Wolcen finally seems to be running steadily. Our first impression of having a Diablo clone in front of us has hardened due to the background story with gods and demons, but visually as well as roleplaying technology, the title offers significantly more depth of detail. The free character development makes it easy to experiment with different classes, especially since no decision has to be final.

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem nearly turned out as the game I expected. I love my freedom in developing and mastering my own character. Boss fights are epic and the world generally good. There are bugs, however, that shouldn't be in the game. Difficulty ranges from far too easy to too hard in comparison - the boss fights are good but you're not prepared after many too easy passages. I had a lot of fun with Wolcen and think it's a good game. When the developers hold their word, it could turn out great in the future.

Wolcen is a decent action RPG with a few issues that hold it back from greatness.

There may never have been so promising a game so completely destroyed by launch bugs as Wolcen.

For now Wolcen is a solid ARPG, but it can be even greater. The question is: will Wolcen Studio take that opportunity?

Despite the game have a great combat feeling and create tons of fun on looting, it's such a pity that Wolcen: lords of mayhem remians buggy and broken. After a four-year development, the game still looks like being in ALPHA test, obviously, not everyone can stand it.

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem deserves your attention and patience. You can clearly see the passion, commitment and a fresh look on the hack’n’slash genre. Right now the game is a well-made evolution of old ideas but it has a chance to become one of the best if the developers deliver all the promised content. Despite many technical issues, Wolcen is worth your time. The game is simply too much fun!
