The graphics are beautiful for a tablet.
Also cool that your equipped gear levels up as you use it. Helps reduce grindiness.

There's actually a story in this too, with good voice acting and cutscenes. Feels more like a proper RPG than DH5
The loot is what I would be draw to so how is it? Color coded or what?

EDIT: Also is the loot dropped by enemies or just at the end of the level you see what you got?

Hah,is not it funny that this game has pretty much exact same combat like in Eisenhorn - Xenos (to be honest it's more like in that Batman game from Gameloft which was pulled not a long while ago)?I'm not derailing this thread,just notice that this even works on iPad 2.

What is most interesting to me is that Gameloft seems to be getting a lot less fame over these games even compared to some indie titles on the forums.I just think a lot less people are playing/trying Gameloft games now.I remember how big of a deal Asphalt 8 was back in the day and games such as MC4 and others and now some of these new Gameloft games pass very much under the radar.It's not that this game is bad or anything,it's just that it's nothing different.

IMHO it's because of what Gameloft did ie. their greedy freemium pay2win paywall games. I remember playing Dungeon hunter 1 and 2, and their platformer that looked like Kirby. They were awesome premium games. Then DH3 came out, and became free and arena based. Graphics were beautiful but aside from that, everything sucked. Then DH4, with your oh so small inventory and their super-powered-but-for-sale items in there taking up space ie. you got a 50DPS sword, and in your inventory is a 600DPS sword. But if you want them, you have to pay up. Then you'll get to this paywall, an absurd boss with a wave of adds that's way off the difficulty curve. Unless you buy the big sword, you'll almost never beat the boss. After that, I generally stayed away from anything Gameloft.

Why does every Gameloft thread need to devolve into a discussion about F2P or Pay2Win or all that? Usually these comments are made by people who haven't even played the game.
Play the game, talk about the game.

I'm not saying your opinions are invalid or anything, but there's a General Game Discussion forum for a reason. That's the place for this conversation.

Most of us can't even try the game because it's region locked. However, it's been a long while since I played a Gameoft game that I enjoyed for more than a couple days(newer releases, their old premium games were great). Hit that paywall and I'm done every time.
