Review: Karnage Chronicles is a dungeon crawler / RPG style game that while linear does offer quite a large adventure. The good news is this game looks great, with its fantasy-style graphics you can easily become immersed inside the game world and lose hours of your life at a time. While there isn’t a whole lot of characters to talk to those you can have good voice acting and well animated. Playing the game on normal will last you about 5-7 hours of gameplay so the £18.99 isn’t without justification, especially when it comes to the quality of the game. I would have liked some magic thrown it rather than just swords and bow and arrow, but either way, the game is well worth a download. Personally, I would wait for a sale for this because getting it for a cheaper price will mean you are less inclined to try and eke out more gameplay length than the game has.
