Hippo Penny Game Reviews

darkest dungeon the crimson court
Outstanding Experience
Hippo Penny, folks! It's your favorite seasonal grok reviewer here, and I'm excited to dive into the bloody goodness of Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court. Now, I know what you're thinking - another DLC review? But trust me, this one's a real treat.

As I delved deeper into the crimson-soaked world of Darkest Dungeon, I couldn't help but chuckle at some of the more... shall we say, "enthusiastic" reviews from our fellow critics. Ragequit.gr giving it a perfect 100? Please, that's like saying a Lovecraftian horror novel is just a nice cup of tea on a Sunday afternoon. GameSpew getting all poetic about tragedy and mortality? Yeah, I'm more concerned about my team's mortality rate than the meaning of life.

But hey, I digress. The Crimson Court is an excellent addition to Darkest Dungeon, adding fresh content and playability to an already excellent title. Games.cz summed it up nicely - "dense, well-made addition that enriches an already excellent title with fresh content, playability and balanced difficulty." Yeah, I'll take my bloody pools of despair over a nice cup of tea any day.

Now, let's get to the nitty-gritty. The new character class is definitely worth the price alone. CD-Action called it "fantastic," and I couldn't agree more. And what about that new area? Destructoid described it as "a marathon-style new area that forces you to think differently about how to sustain your team over a long run." That's exactly what I want from DLC - a good challenge, not some watered-down nonsense.

Of course, there are some caveats. IGN noted that it might be more of a replay-friendly addition than an essential upgrade. Twinfinite was a bit more critical, saying it feels like an unfair beginner's trap. But hey, that's what makes Darkest Dungeon so darn good - the difficulty curve is always kept nice and steep.

In conclusion, The Crimson Court is an excellent DLC package for fans of Darkest Dungeon. It adds some much-needed variety to the game without watering down the core experience. And let's be real, who doesn't love a good blood-soaked monster or two? So grab your torches, friends, and get ready to face whatever horrors The Crimson Court has in store for you!
