Stonekeep is one of the first games to apply a first-person shooter interface to the realm of fantasy role-playing, as the gamer takes the role of a classic medieval hero who must use both sword and sorcery to make his way through winding catacombs full of animated skeletons and terrible monsters.
The first-person perspective helps to allow the player to assume the role of the lead character, as a few well-placed mouse-clicks wield the hero's mighty sword to dispatch evil ghouls and goblins that seem to be standing right in front of him.
While the dungeons are well stocked with enemies, puzzle solving is a significant aspect of gameplay as well, as the hero may need to disarm traps or use found items to escape from one area to the next. The game comes with a 138-page novella that establishes the hero character and his place in the storyline. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
