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.

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem attempts to stand out with deep, free-form character creation, but it has far too many problems with all of its underlying systems.

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

Once its major bugs are resolved, Wolcen's clever ideas could let it compete with the heavyweights of the action RPG genre. For now, though, too much of the mayhem is caused by bugs to recommend it.

A mountain of issues gets in the way of the gratuitous monster murder and engaging customisation.

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 can be as fun as it is visually stunning. It has some brilliant ideas in terms of character development and feels great once you in a fight. But it also has a lot of technical and balancing issues that may prove that it needed more time before release.

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem has all the tools thanks to ARPGs that came before it. Sadly, its online mode has had a litany of issues, the controls could use some tweaks, the loot pool isn't as deep as you could imagine, character skills need some rebalancing, and a slew of shortcomings lead to a questionable launch after four years of development. Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem can surely reach the cream of the crop among ARPGs with more improvements, but it's going to take time.

Wolcen could have been a contender in the ARPG arena, but it can't get out of it's own way for more than two seconds. Perhaps in time WOLCEN Studio will patch everything up and allow the game to shine as it deserves, but right now the game fights you at every turn. Wolcen is game that is as fun as it is frustrating. I like Wolcen; I simply wish I could love it.
