Not so bad

The site blows out of proportion the nudity and violence in this game. The "Gore hit" is laughable. No explicit nudity is shown and the sexual themes are light.

While you might not have heard of it, this role-playing game (RPG) is lots of fun, and will make gamers think of classic adventures with its dungeon focused gameplay. Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk features a lot of standard features RPG fans will recognize, such as winding maze-like dungeons, puzzles, collectibles, secrets, and turn-based fantasy combat. As such, it'll likely remind seasoned gamers of classics like Wizardry, The Lands of Lore, and The Bard's Tale. In fact, there's a ton of variety in the dungeons and you're approach to them -- such as shrinking down in size to battle evil plants or tackling huge dirt-covered trolls, which require different tactics to take down successfully. You can use magic to break down walls, study the map to uncover secret passages, and spend as much (or little) time you like customizing your huge party of puppets.

As you get deeper into the game, you'll unlock more slots to drop fighters into, and balancing out your party once you find a winning combination is vital (friendly party members fight stronger together, too). Some bosses are quite challenging, but they can be gratifyingly defeated through trial and error. There's a lot of depth here, and if the game gets too tough, you can decrease its difficulty, too. While the mature storyline may not be everyone's cup of tea -- some of the sexual dialog, imagery and moaning sounds felt out of place for this game -- and the presentation isn't as impressive as it could have been -- there's a lot to like here. From the story to the dungeons, Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk is a surprisingly good game for fans of the genre.
