Ankama Games' DOFUS has been one of those games that has quietly met with success over the years of its life, even spawning WAKFU recently. We take a look at DOFUS and see how it measures up in our latest review. Read on! Played DOFUS? Let us know what -you- think in the comments.
I can't say enough about how impressive and charming are Dofus' visuals. The game sports cute, colorful character models and environments that manage to be reminiscent of fantasy anime archetypes while still presenting a unique and distinct style. I tend to be pretty glowy over Ankama Games' art styles across their various media, and while I know that the anime-inspired graphics aren't quite everyone's cup of tea, there can be no doubt that the attention to detail and lovingly crafted environments in Dofus are delightful. The game's sounds and music are likewise nice, although there isn't any voice acting or range of crazy sound effects outside of the clamor of battle. Dofus' music is just as charming as its visuals, and can be sometimes wistful, other times rousing, although the game could use a bit more variety here.
