Anybody have anything to say about Risk of Rain? I love Binding of Isaac and FTL, this is supposed to be similar in the "rogue-like" fashion. Seems to have generally favorable reviews from what little I've seen.
not particularly super fun imho, but its ok for a while.. im not a fan of timed games tho, and thats a main part of it
also, your ability to survive and thrive is generally predicated randomly by which loot drops show up.. also the gameplay is sorta meh, with not a lot of variety to it
its fairly difficult btw, even on easy mode .. and the only thing that saves between games is the unlocks
Thanks for the info, but I pulled the trigger and bought it...and really like it! While what you said is true, I like random gameplay (that can be overcome by pure skill), which so far I find to be the case. Good drops obviously help, but you can overcome bad ones with enough tactics/strategy (at least to level 3).
So, Risk of Rain is really good, if you like Contra + BoI type gameplay. It is hard, though.
