    The world has been laid waste to the Demonic Rhogar Legion and our only hope is the convict Harkyn. Slay the minions of the Legion where every slice of your sword counts as life or death. Lords Of The Fallen is a Dark Souls inspired action RPG where your weapons, armor, magic, offense and defense are your strategy.

    Conclusion:
    Lords Of The Fallen runs fairly well even with and older "staging" version of Wine and DXVK. The outside areas slow down the frame rate a bit and maybe a few flickering textures, but other than that, it looks beautiful! I have heard the Steam version doesn't run at all in Wine, so stick with the GOG version for now.

    Nice game but game control with mouse is very slow. When I fight first boss hi hit me few times and I cannot hit him because camera rotate to slow and I can't point to him. Playing with ps3 pad also sucks.

    Yes, I noticed the same thing. I thought it was meant to be like that for realism?
    I have a hard time turning around and facing the boss after dodging a hit. So frustrating.
