The game is still on my 'to play sometime this year' list buried in my backlog, but to be frank, that sounds exactly like Diablo. And what's the problem with that?

Take Diablo, strip out all occult theme and over-the-top gore, make it even more repetitive (i.e. four 1-hour long levels in a row trudging through the exact same background graphics and exact same enemies), then toss in very generic and boring enemies and atmosphere.

Classic.

Dark Void was surprisingly positive, for the most part.

While I can agree with some of his complaints (poor UI, lots of the same enemies), I completely disagree with his overall opinion.  I played the whole game single player and enjoyed the hell out of it.  In fact, I'm still playing the Zombie Island and awaiting the next expansion.
