Overall, it certainly is a welcome blast to the past, and I can honestly say I would play more just like this one.
This is something that a few of us have hinted at in this thread, including me and something worth discussing a bit further... For all intents and purposes, Legend of Grimrock is Dungeon Master 2012. That's incredibly fresh right now because so many years have passed since the last good, similar dungeon crawler, least of all one this thoughtful and polished. With that said, part of what makes this game so special for us is that there have been so few examples of late that have gotten this right. More of this type of game, no matter how good, arguably would start to diminish the positive feelings with each new game released and we'd be in a similar situation as we were when this style of game took a commercial tumble.
In other words, Grimrock might have felt a bit less special and sold rather less well had there been other games approximately as good and in this style out already. I know I'm less interested in another Grimrock-type game, no matter who it's from, simply because this one is already so good. To put it simply, now that this has been accomplished (and I'm looking forward to add-ons/expansions), time for me to be impressed by another re-imagining of a great classic game style...
