Description: Shadows in the Darkness is a multiplayer VR roguelite, allowing up to four players to explore randomly generated dungeons, fight a variety of monsters, and loot their way to victory. Enchant powerful weapons, chug down mysterious potions, and reach the 21st floor of these darkest dungeons.
Review: I personally like my dungeon crawler games so I was more than happy to dive into ‘Shadows in the Darkness’. As far as I know, this is the first VR multiplayer dungeon crawler so that is a nice bonus (it’s just a shame there are no other players to play against). This then leaves you playing against the AI and sadly they are not very intelligent at all and the game just turns into a slugfest. The game itself is not the best dungeon game at all and is even missing the basics like a map button, nor does it look much cop. I just feel asking £3.99 for this game (given the lack of online players) is just too much and I would wait for a sale. It’s more than playable and you will enjoy looking for loot, but there are better games out there.
