The game allows you to be one of 3 classes including a Warrior, Wizard or a Monk which kind of mixes both worlds. I chose to create a warrior figuring I would hack and slash my way with style and you start out with a brief story line about two twin brothers, one imprisoned (your character) and the other ruling and corrupted to evil. The story line is fairly generic and nothing special about the initial quests which all involve “kill X number of this” or “go here” type of missions.
The game however is still very fun to play and there is no auto combat, you need to tap to make each attack and you can either control your characters movement with a little stick on the left of the screen or change the control method to click anywhere to move your character to that location.
I found moving with the stick with my left index finger while using my right index finger for attacks and special abilities was the most comfortable configuration. I also enjoyed the various equipment that dropped as well as appreciated the auto-equip which ensures the most powerful of each item is selected and equipped instantly which saves you time and from having to read the description and item stats from each item.
After gaining enough experience you have options on which abilities to increase when you level up as well as to increase or add new skills for your character. These include a few combat skills which you have to trigger by click on the action button, or passive skills which constantly add benefit to your character.
Overall if you are a fan of Dungeon Siege, Diablo, Sacred 2 and other types of Action RPG games where there is lots of fighting, exploring and collecting various armor and weapons with various abilities and benefits then Dungeon Hunter 2 is a good choice for the iPad and won’t disappoint.
