Some dmods are innovative in very obvious ways, some are innovative in very subtle ways. This one is both...

Style: 9
Exceedingly well decorated and scripted, with a number of new graphics. In particular, the new Dink pics are awesome, especially the one for death. On the downside, the cutscenes are long and verbose. In general, there's way too much talking, although Dink's character has been well chiseled.

Gameplay: 9
The Forest of the Ancients is an exceptionaly well-made area (though it could stand having more stuff to do: I prefer the FIAT dungeons to it, for example), and the pillbug ghosts are very cool. Also, the bosses are good (a little stale now, but this was made in 2001). The pointless RPG tasks have been well implemented, and show a fair amount of innovation (the fish quest, the fireplace thingy). No new enemies or magic though (besides one-time stuff.) Really, the main problem in this department is that the game is to short to do any really good gameplay sequences (outside of the final battle.)

Story: 9
The story is good but somewhat confusing... and this is a dmod that leans heavily on developing story. Somehow it bothers me that the agent of Dink's resurrection is Martridge... Martridge can resurrect people?

Overall: 9.0
