I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities. I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good). I haven't...
I didn't like his one that much at all, in all honesty. They changed too much of it for me to really like. The graphics are a lot nicer than the first one, but again, they changed too much. For instance:
The Imps don't work as fast as they used to, kind of annoying really, even if you slapped them, they don't do a good fast job as they did in the first one
I also didn't like that they changed how the monsters looked either, or the fact that most monsters are "stunned" when dropped. Wtf kinda crap is that?! They certainly didn't do that in the first one! That's just plain annoying. It's why I didn't really play DK2 all that much. It annoyed me too much. I'm rating this one a C+, all it really has going for it is the better graphics and a few other little things.
