Kinda fun but also kinda mediocre

This game has a well-earned terrible reputation. At launch, it was night unplayable. But, after a number of updates, the glitches and game-breaking issues have largely been resolved. What's left is a moderately enjoyable dungeon crawler with big ambitions and a mediocre execution.
