Eastern Exorcist Critic Reviews

Eastern Exorcist is an enjoyable 2D hack 'n' slasher that feels slick and fluid, but doesn't do quite enough to stand out from the crowd

As it stands right now, Eastern Exorcist is an excellent work in progress. It certainly isn't without its share of issues but most of them can be fixed in subsequent updates. I recommend at least giving it a look if you enjoy a good challenge.

Don’t need a proton pack to bust ghosts or religious text to banish demons, just put them to the sword instead.

Eastern Exorcist thus far is equal parts impressive and flawed. I appreciate the innovation in gameplay and how solidly it’s implemented. I also praise its beautiful 2D visual aesthetics with its hand painted style. This act’s story and characters seem like an afterthought, however, and leave too much to be desired. The game so far only taked about 5-7 hours to complete, however, paired with the current price tag of 16.99USD is a tough purchase to justify. The developer’s comment that the price may increase as development continues only hurts, especially those on the fence. So as the game stands as of this publication, I would rate this a 3 out 5. Since this is an early access title with supposed new characters, new adventures, and new combat Arts to look forward to, then I would be willing to reexamine. However, the second act and any further additions must pull off much needed improvements across the board; story, characters, improvements to Arts; if I were to consider a higher score in the future. For now, Eastern Exorcist is a bundle of potential facing an uphill battle and in desperate need to prove itself.
