Genre: Action, role-playing
Circle of Doom sees you playing as one of four characters, each with their own weapons and skills. I'm not sure why, but you seem to be fighting hordes of a lizard army. Storyline wise, I don't know what to tell you - so instead, you are just going to have to accept that things must happen for a reason and move on!
Gameplay is split into the good and the bad. The good includes the customisable weapons and clothes; there is a good RPG feel to it here. The bad includes the horrifically dull button-mashing fights - don't dare to stray from the path, you'd only be disappointed!
Graphics are okay, nothing overwhelming though. Enemy AI is all but non-existent; you literally hack and slash your way through the levels in a straight line, until you reach the end.
I know I seem to be concentrating on the bad, but I should say that the game has something; it reminded me of Golden Axe, and that is never a bad thing.
Replay Value 1/5
