Like all of the previous titles in the series, Dungeon Hunter 4 is a fantastic action RPG, which whilst having an aged, even dated formula, still managed to provide enough fun for the majority of gamers to keep coming back to it for more. Not only does it have great action, but many of the side quests and environments are designed quite nicely as well, providing the game with a real sense of reality. The story is that of an orphan who has to travel across several planes of existence to fight off the dungeon monster threat once and for all, although unfortunately this means that he's also forced to put up with living with his cousin, who isn't too pleased about his job.
The first thing you'll notice when you start playing the game is that the storyline is very different to the rest of the games in the series; it takes a completely unexpected turn, and while some people may view it as a negative, I personally find it captivating and exciting. There are a number of things that make Dungeon Hunter 4 stands out from the rest of the games in the series, and the main one is the excellent level design, which manages to combine traditional style action with some truly innovative concepts and game play. It also has a great voice cast, composed of a variety of Hollywood actors including Lance Armstrong, Tom Cruise, David Hasselhoff, and Ed Harris.
This leads me to my next point, which is that much of the success of this action RPG has come from its popularity on the mobile platform, where millions of people have been enjoying it on a daily basis. If you were to look at the number of downloads that are available for this title, you would quickly realise that a large proportion of them are being played on mobile devices. Given this background, it is clear that the developers at gameloft have really hit the nail on the head when creating an addictive free-to-play title such as this, which will go down a winner with fans of this genre.
