Juggling sub-par game design with a host of technical issues on the Switch, Gods Will Fall is a painfully disappointing roguelike that plays more like a proof of concept than anything else. Fashioning gameplay around eight distinct playable characters who can all permanently die is certainly interesting and adds an inherent tension to the experience, but stiff controls, laughable enemy AI, and shallow combat do nothing but remind audiences that they can be playing something better. The fact DeepSilver would publish a title so blatantly unready for public consumption - let alone purchase - is frankly baffling. Gods Will Fall is as much a waste of time as it is money.

There are some clever ideas to be found within the world of Gods Will Fall, but they can't make up for the fact that it often feels like a tedious slog.

A charming top-down dungeon crawler without quite enough challenge or content. Gods Will Fall is worth grabbing on sale, even if you won't ever be worshipping it.

Gods Will Fall proved to be a game I wish I played sooner. While it fails to realise its full potential, it takes you on an unforgettable journey as you guide unsuspecting heroes against perilous odds. With satisfying combat, picturesque landscapes, and epic boss battles, Gods Will Fall is a gem of a dungeon crawler and one you won’t want to miss.

Sadly, this game is more on the no side, due to its price but mostly because of its overall faults such as the gameplay with unstable frames (especially on PS4) when more enemies are on the screen, unprecise inputs, mutiple bugs, repetition of same levels. Moreover, the level of difficulty becomes all the more easier as one progresses in the game, and the repetition of enemies and dungeons doesn’t push the player to want to replay the game.

Gods Will Fall is an entertaining bet from Manchester indie studio, Clever Beans. A fantasy roguelite rpg brings us a war story against the gods, in which we will have to handle 8 savior heroes. At first the game becomes interesting and has very well planned dungeons, witch with the time lacks of some technical aspects and can become repetitive. Other than that, it's a very nice game that can bring several hours of fun to roguelike fans.

While it has some positive elements that may still make it worth checking out, Gods Will Fall's procedurally generated difficulty hurts itself more than it really helps in the long run.

Gods Will Fall tries to reinterpret the roguelike genre and some ideas show that the theoretical potential to do so is there, but the problem is that the technical structure ruins any good intuition (such as faulty AI). On the Switch, the rough controls also increase frustration.
