Cut a blood-soaked path
Wolcen Studios brings you a hack and slash game that draws you straight into the thick of the actions.
Lord of Mayhem delivers as a role-playing game. While reminiscent of Diablo and Path of Exile, it improves on them by taking the graphics to another level. Wolcen has a well-developed combat system which synchronizes well with the gritty atmosphere.
The game has a great storyline taking you into the depths of the world, and as long as you stay on the single-player, it is good. Multiplayer, unfortunately suffers from some of the worst bugs that plague the system.
Unfortunately, the whole game is plagued by malfunctions. Fortunately, the studio has been making rapid improvements to the game. What still is a problem is the in-game economics. As the updates have come, it has constantly revamped the way goods are collected. Also, crafting items is quite rare in the game compared to PoE.
Where can you run this program?
You can run this on Windows 7 and later with at least 8 GB Ram.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes, while LoM has better graphics and great combat, Path of Exile is free to play and has an overall better system. Grim Dawn is another good option to compete with Wolcen as it has fewer bugs and was well received.
Overall, Wolcen has its strengths and weaknesses. While it does many things that are innovative and fun with battle mechanics, graphics, and storytelling, it has some major downsides. The bugs and economics could use some work, but the updates are consistent so that will hopefully change.
Should you download it?
Yes, if you are willing to spend the money and enjoy hack and slash, Wolcen: LoM is right for you.
