    But there are not really any views to admire, as they are isometric.

    Maybe, but dungeon crawlers aren't one of those. LoG and MMX were very successful, and I say it again, they play in a unique way and I wouldn't call them outdated.

    There is a place for all kinds of games. Before playing LoG in 2012, I had NEVER played a grid based dungeon crawler before. I ended up loving LoG and it was my GOTY 2012.
