    "This game fits the bill if you are looking for a game where you're just killing hordes of mobs. I am going to keep looking for something else with more depth to it though."

    #2Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a self-contained re-boot of the Castlevania series, and thus not canon to the previous games. The game follows the epic quest of Gabriel Belmont who seeks revenge.

    "Anyone who enjoyed the original Castlevania games will also surely enjoy this one. Even those who are new to the series can find this game easy to pick up, and its story will surely keep you entertained for numerous hours on end. If you love dark games with a hint of spook and mystery, give this one a purchase and be glad you did."

    "I've heard mixed reviews of Thief. I couldn't play it myself because my computer didn't have a good enough GPU, but I've heard the original games were very good, and the new one was good too. However, it released around the same time as Dishonored, which was a very similar, fantastic game, so Thief didn't get much of a chance to shine."

    "Path of Exile is great fighting game and it's perfect for people like me who enjoy getting revenge on those who have wronged you. Because that's pretty much the point of the game, build up your character and get some justice. It's good mix of fighting and exploring, and the customization features are fantastic."

    "This game has both, fantasy and superior gameplay all in one. I particularly liked the graphics in this game, it was dark and gloomy at times but it all connected to the story line. It has its challenging levels while others were quite easy. So it has a variety of difficulty. "

    "I just tried this game for the first time a few weeks ago. It was much better than I thought it would be. If you are into dark fantasy games I think you would really like this. The gameplay is smooth and easy. It is hard but not too hard to where you get frustrated."

    "Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor could be one of the best games with dark fantasy on Steam, but there's too many things wrong with it. First, the story is subpar for an AAA studio. The story is cluttered with useless dialogue that has nothing to do with the story. Second, the game is a buggy mess. Good luck trying to play more than 15 minutes at a time without it crashing."

    "Trine is a pretty solid dark fantasy game. It is a new take on the old platformer games. There are classes to switch between and you will need to use all of them to get through the game. The mechanics are pretty solid and the animations are good. Pretty good game overall."
