ScreenRant checked out the action RPG Warhammer: Chaosbane:

Warhammer: Chaosbane Review - Diablo Without A Cause

Warhammer: Chaosbane tries to bring the Diablo formula to the Old World, but a fresh coat of paint can't cover the problems with the game.

Warhammer: Chaosbane is a hack and slash action RPG that takes place in the world of the Warhammer tabletop miniature game. The game takes the tried and true formula of slaying countless monsters in order to steal their treasure and transplants it to the world of Warhammer, but can a shift of setting help Warhammer: Chaosbane stand out from the competition?

It's impossible to talk about Warhammer: Chaosbane without mentioning the fact that it's heavily inspired by the Diablo series. Warhammer: Chaosbane is essentially a less ambitious and much shorter version of one of the Diablo games, with little incentive to keep playing once the brief story campaign is over.

[...]

Warhammer: Chaosbane might be of interest to those who are fans of the franchise, or to those who are looking for a simpler version of Diablo, but there just isn't enough interesting content in Warhammer: Chaosbane to recommend it to anyone else.

Score: 2.5/5

I agree with this review and yet, I find I'm actually enjoying the game (I'm a big fan of ARPG's though, so that might have something to do with it).

However, the one big thing that angers me the most about this game is the price. It's really outrageously overpriced! This is a $20 game at most.

And to add insult to injury, you don't get the full game at purchase. If you want things like pets, then that'll cost you extra. Greedy practices like this really offend me.

But apart from that, the game isn't that bad (it's not that good either, but I find myself constantly going back to it).

But if ever a game could benefit from the modding community, it's this one. I think the developers made a big mistake by not supporting mods.

Still, if they continue to support and patch the game (and add some more content) then this could turn out to be a nice little time waster. But that price has got to come down!

Just shows how much might and power that Blizzard franchise still has all over the "Gaming" world. Even so long after the initial launch.
