The only significant difference to Darkest Dungeon on the PlayStation 4 (which comes with both cross-buy and cross-save for the Vita version enabled) is that the controls take some getting used to. For instance, in order to navigate the inventory you have to hold L1 and use the right stick; holding R1 instead and using the stick goes into the character status screens. It feels like a control layout that, once I’ve internalized it, would let me access everything quickly and easily – but there’s going to be a lot of learning involved before I get to that point. Until then, clicking the left side of the touchpad brings up the controls list when I forget which button does what. That quick-access cheat sheet seems to suggest I’m not the only person struggling to get a grip on them.

Non era facile condensare nei pochissimi tasti di un pad (o di una portatile) un'esperienza di gioco nata appositamente per essere goduta con l'accoppiata mouse e tastiera. Se la versione maggiore non ha dato alcun problema sotto questo punto di vista, diverso discorso deve esser fatto per la piccola di casa Sony in cui la mappatura dei comandi, pur pensata con un certo criterio, finisce con esser poco intuitiva e un tantino farraginosa. Per questo motivo - e solo per questo - vi consigliamo di sottrarre mezzo punto dalla votazione in calce. Darkest Dungeon, comunque, rimane un acquisto assolutamente consigliato senza se e senza ma. Il binomio Cross buy/cross save e la sottotitolazione in lingua italiana, poi, completa un'offerta ludica imperdibile. Se non lo recuperate, prima o poi, vi meritate di trascorrere una nottata tra gli orrori del Dedalo.

Auch auf der PlayStation 4 und PS Vita springt der morbide Funke so schnell über, dass man in Darkest Dungeon versinkt. Zwar muss man sich an die im Vergleich zum PC fummeligere Steuerung des voll belegten Gamepads gewöhnen, aber wenn man die erstmal verinnerlicht hat, kommt man kaum aus diesen Verliesen raus, die euch grafisch und inhaltlich dasselbe Abenteuer bieten - allerdings haben die Red Hook Studios einige kleine Boni wie neue Artefakte, Ereignisse sowie leichte grafische Zusätze zum Konsolenstart integriert. Mal abgesehen davon, dass ein Sprecher noch nie so stimmungsvoll ein Spiel kommentiert hat wie Wayne June: Dieses Taktik-Rollenspiel hat ein klasse Artdesign, das düstere Fantasy und Horror à la Lovecraft vereint.

Darkest Dungeon has found itself high up in my games of the year list, and I’ll be playing it for a long time to come. An ungodly combination of Fire Emblem and Dark Souls, it delights in making you suffer, but every small step forwards feels like a massive achievement. It’s not for everyone, but if you enjoy the darkness and feel up to the challenge, you can’t do much better than enter the Darkest Dungeon. Just make sure that all your affairs are in order and that you have written a will, because once you’re in, you might not make it back out…

A fantastically well designed and presented roguelike, that makes your heroes’ mental health just as important as their physical well-being.

Darkest Dungeon can be quite inventive and interesting at its best, but these highs aren’t held for very long. Still, this is a solid turn-based RPG with a great gimmick.
