Is the game worth it?

9 posts in this topic

I recently got the game for free from someone and I'm wondering if it's any fun to play through it, I kept hearing bad things about the game.

It’s not horrible. It’s very similar to Dark Souls if you are into those games. However, I’ve tried playing it twice and just couldn’t get into it past 5 hours or so. It’s got pretty solid mechanics and is different enough from Dark Souls to be an interesting game. But unlike with Dark souls, every time I died I was more annoyed than anything else. And the frame rate (on a PS4 Pro) was more detrimental to this game and I don’t normally care about frame rate. Their later game, The Surge, was much more well executed. This one was just too bland for my taste.

Thank you! I'll probably give it a try to see if I like it or not

I enjoyed it, and considering you've got it free then it's definitely worth a go :)

It's a clunky souls clone has 3 classes with decent line up of weapons and bosses.

 

 1st run is abit hard, narrow halways an a fair bit of back tracking

 

Story is abit loose. Its been bout 5 years since i played it. An i can't remember anything aside from a guy name Andreas? And being an exilem

 

Game has 3 endings and ng++ (optional) to have a character with basicly all 3 class perks

 

* game start. Warrior theif cleric

Ng+ add one of the remaining 2

Ng++ add final role card 

 

 

 Ng+ or ng++ would be req. To plat. Some bosses drop orange (legendary) rolls of there weapon depending on how ya beat them

 

I.e. 0 armor / damage taken +60 seconds to kill

 

Kill w element

Kill w.o blocking/using sheild

Destory adds

 Ect..

 

 Its fun to mix up the gauntlet you get. Your "ranged weapon"  modded mine into a flimsy grenade launcher.

 

 

 All n all its a ok title.

If you're going into it thinking its Dark Souls III then you will be severely disappointment. But as a free game, It's not horrible.

 

As mentioned above though, it is really really clunky.

As someone who loves Dark Souls, Demon's Souls, Bloodborne and The Surge and kinda liked Sekiro I have to say: No, not worth it at all!

Completed every Soulslike game multiple times, except Sekiro, and I can honestly say that I really enjoyed my first playthrough. But unfortunately there's so much backtracking and it's often unclear where to go, and the world is really far too linear and dull to encourage exploring or multiple playthroughs. If you liked the bulky armors in the Souls franchise (like Onion Knight and Smough), tanking and possibly even fat-rolling, then it's at least worth giving a shot.
