Should I play The Wizards - Dark Times: Brotherhood in 2024?

The Good

From the reviews, it seems that the game had potential, with the promise of new content and excitement for players. However, due to the various technical issues and lack of developer support, this aspect of the game was ultimately overshadowed by the negative experiences.

The Bad

The red flags are many and overwhelming. The Index Controller issue has been persisting for nearly half a year with no solution in sight, leaving many players unable to play the game at all. The devs’ lack of responsiveness and apparent disinterest in addressing these problems is disheartening. It’s clear that the game has become a shell of itself, leaving players frustrated and eager for change.

Verdict

Based on these reviews, it’s hard to recommend The Wizards: Dark Times: Brotherhood in its current state. The game’s inability to function properly, combined with the devs’ apparent disinterest in fixing the issues, makes it a hard sell. Until the developer addresses the fundamental problems and shows clear dedication to improving the game, it’s best to hold off on purchasing this title.
