This first episode "Iron From Ice" was eye-opening and intense. It sets the scene from start to a very "oh my goodness" finish. If this is how the following episodes are going to be--I cannot wait for the rest! I highly recommend this for any fan and this is for fans.
Overall, I was pleased with my experience with Lords of the Fallen and I do recommend it. Especially if you don't mind getting a bit frustrated at some boss fights. It's definitely a fun game and has earned its right to stand on its own merits. If you enjoy a challenge, this is the game for you.
If you're looking for a game that's different and enjoy paranormal lore, then I would recommend this to try out. I'm not disappointed on spending the money on launch day to play it. I certainly knew to expect something different and for that, Square Enix doesn't disappoint. A visually stunning game with wonderful writing.
