Victory Fanfare: The Good, Bad, and Ugly of ROGUE LEGACY

Rogue Legacy is a game that interested me almost immediately. The fact that the castle would change every time you played seemed so awesome and something only a few games have ever done (I could totally be wrong about this). I loved all the aspects of this game and was so excited to start playing it. Once I did, I discovered so much more than what I was expecting.

The Good:
Like I was saying up there, I really dig the always changing castle. But, if you like a specific layout of the castle, you can acquire the architect and keep it the way you last played it. It’s not without a hefty fee, of course, but a fair price when you’ve got a layout down.

The RPG elements of this game are also cool. I never have much time to play RPGs anymore due to being an adult and having a social life, plus a job, so this seemed great to me! You know, until you really get down to the game.

The Bad:
What I thought was going to be a fun, quick game made me quickly realize I will spend days, weeks, maybe even months, to fully progress. Like I was saying about having a social life and a job, and you know, just being an adult, I don’t have the time I’d love to put into this game. It was clear to me that I’d have to put in way more time than I thought and actually have.

The Ugly:
There’s really not much ugly in this game. Beautifully designed with a fun soundtrack… Or uh, song? Like I said, no time guys and I’ve only progressed so far. No, I have not yet beat it, when I do I will properly review this game, you know…in the year 2020.
