Grimrock Map Reviews

Post by SolitaryDrake » Wed Oct 09, 2013 10:50 pm

Hello ladies, gentlemen, and those undecided. With my experience in playing Grimrock maps, I have decided that I will try my hand at giving sort of proper reviews of maps. These will be going up every Wednesday, and the link to the playlist can be found just below this sentence.

Reviews Playlist:

Reviews List:

Cows on Wheels, by Peeba:
Review - Steam Page - Tombs of Winterfell DEMO, by Leki:
Review - Steam Page - Prison Ward, by Wagna:
Review - Steam Page - Eye of the Dragon, by Drakkan:
Review- NexusMod Page - I'll be updating this thread every week with whatever map I've decided to look at, so be sure to check back regularly. Or, alternatively, you could just subscribe to my youtube channel for daily gaming updates.

If you know of any maps you think I should review, feel free to post them below. I'll be more than happy to look at them. Thank you all for taking the few moments to read this, and hopefully you'll enjoy my new series.

Well this one :) :viewtopic.php?f=14&t=5219
(But it won't be done for nearly two months ~or more; even then... it's WID, but something to keep an eye on.)

The original is actually the next on my list of full play-throughs, so even if I can't quite get to the new one yet, something related to it will be available to view soon.

Seeing as you've played so many custom maps will you be reviewing any that you've already done?

given that you have so many completed maybe just the best of the those.

I might, but the play-throughs themselves sort of serve as an extended look at the maps, so I wouldn't hold my breath for it. I decided to do this to cover more Grimrock, so I doubt I'll jump into it by going over things I've already done.

My second Grimrock review is now live, and can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AujtHFboVRE

I intended to cover this last week, but I was rather ill, so I got around to it this week instead. This map is fantastic, and I greatly look forward to its full release. Highly Recommended.

My fourth review is up and can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5fzYVkRacw

I must say that despite my many complains in this review, I do not in fact hate this map. It simply has a level of difficulty that I'm uncomfortable with.

My fifth review is up and can be found here: [One Room Round Robin] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snruDqIDXnA

Its a bit short because this one is incredibly difficult to talk about, but I really enjoyed it.
