A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The onscreen controls are very intuitive -- and the game's default difficulty is challenging, but not frustrating.

Violence

The game is a constant series of battles involving sword fights and spells. There is little blood in the actual game, though the opening cut scene does show a fair amount of gore when someone is bludgeoned to death with a mace by an ogre.

Sex

A statue in the background shows a topless woman in the Aztec style of carving, but it is a very crude representation and not something that is prominently featured.

Language
Consumerism

The very first thing players see on screen is an ad for another game on the PS3. A link from the main menu also takes players to a page listing other apps from the developer.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Dungeon Hunter 2 is a hack-and-slash role-playing game that borrows heavily from the M-rated Diablo series of video games but is less graphic. The game is more a series of battles against enemies than anything else. The thin plot-line of a story is mainly window dressing for the battles. For all the fighting, however, there's not a lot of blood, outside of a few cut scenes which can show gore. The game is heavy on up-front advertising, though and uses the Gameloft Live! opt-in feature, which allows players to connect to strangers, including the ability to text chat online with others.

Is it any good?

Diablo has spawned some really, really bad clones. Thankfully, Gameloft (which has made a business of cloning well-known titles for the app world) dodges that bullet with Dungeon Hunter 2. While it's nowhere as good as its source material, the game is less graphic. It is an enjoyable action/RPG with a fairly lengthy campaign, which you can play with others over local and online co-op. The game has an open world design, letting players travel and quest where they want, but suffers from some basic errors -- like the main character often gets stuck while walking about, the graphics are sub-par, and the price is really too high compared to other apps. It's far from perfect, but for RPG fans looking for an app alternative with a little depth, this one's worth the try -- especially if it's on sale.
