Dungeon Keeper is a strategy game where instead of being the hero, you are the evil villain. The goal is to build and manage your dungeon, while at the same time defending it from the heroes (good guys) and defeating the heroes and other dungeon keepers. I think for its time it had quite a unique form of gameplay, in that you controlled the whole game platform by using 'the hand' with your mouse. The hand would pick up creatures and drop them in different parts of your dungeon, it would slap creatures to make them work harder, it would be used to build structures, it lays traps, and it cast spells as well. The building and managing of the dungeon ... Read the complete review

Dungeon Keeper gives you the task of turning a green and pleasant land into a dank and dark living hell. There are about twenty lands to conquer, and you go about this by building a dungeon under each one, fighting off the local villagers and other dungeon keepers and finally disposing of the Lord of the Land in a cruel and painful manner. Still, them's the breaks. Despite the name, Dungeon Keeper is fairly similar to the other games in EA's Theme series. It has a lot in common with Theme Hospital - both games require you to build rooms, and keep the occupants of your complex happy - both use thought bubbles to tell you what your staff/creatures are ...

Dungeon Keeper is an excellent, very playable and very addictive game. Basically you have to build dungeons, build bigger and better dungeons and beat the opposition (other dungeon keepers). This involves using your 'Imps' to dig and then make different types of rooms (ie. Lair, Hatchery, etc) you also need to atract as many different creatures to your dungeon as possible, different creatures posses different powers. You can even take control of creatures and imp's using a first person perspective view. The graphics and sound effects in this game are excellent. The playabliliy and addictiveness is superb. Keys features of the game: a) Good ... Read the complete review

This game turned the normal scenario on its head and gained novelty value on top of good gameplay for a reward. In this game you represent the evil bad guy trying to defend your evil machinations from the interferance of goodie adventurers who venture into your dungeon lair. The main interface itself is simple enough to use that you don't need to undertake a crash course in game operation before you can begin. The tutorial games quickly show you the basics of the game and prepare you for the fun ahead. The game itself is basically akin to most 'God-sims' whereby you are a superior being given control of minions to acheive your objectives. ... Read the complete review

Dungeon Keeper starts off with a great FMV intro in which a noble-looking knight charges headlong past rows of skeletons into a forebidding looking dungeon to do battle with the horrors that lie waiting within- it reminds very strongly of the intro to the classic 80s kids' gameshow Knightmare, only with lots more blood and an excellent heavy metal soundtrack. The game itself is an interesting take on the real-time strategy genre, casting you as the guardian of a dungeon filled with various grotesque monsters, your task being to mine seams of gold to fill your treasury with riches both to entice goody-goody heroes into your realm and also to allow you to build ...
