With its well executed timeloop concept, Lemnis Gate could be the sleeper shooter of 2021.
Lemnis Gate is intoxicating. Lemnis Gate is excruciating. Lemnis Gate is both these things. It's also a unique, compelling, strategic shooter, but one that might be too far ahead of its time.
An intriguing concept for a multiplayer shooter that ultimately fails to excite, where you're more creatively constrained than you might initially think.
Lemnis Gate's incredibly innovative turn-based FPS concept makes it something truly unique and the potential sleeper hit of the year.
Lemnis Gate is a game at odds with itself. Its well-executed time loop mechanics could potentially appeal beyond the usual hardcore shooter crowd, but the game's matchmaking shortcomings and lack of single-player content will keep that wider audience at arm's length. Lemnis Gate is fun, but it feels like a concept that needed more resources to fully realize its promise. That said, if you are a dedicated shooter fan looking for something a little different, you may find yourself doing the time warp again (and again and again).
Even if you are not a fan of competitive multiplayer, Lemnis Gate is worth checking out due to its highly original mechanics, tactical sandbox abilities and fluid shooter action.
Lemnis Gate is a different multiplayer shooter, and as such, everyone may not like it for having something atypical and that at first seems complicated. Personally, I think you should give it a try and try if you really like it. In addition, its inclusion in the well-known Xbox Game Pass service, makes it easier to find out if we are really interested. This impressive service gives us the opportunity to try games without any fear, because if you do not like it you delete it and try another.

A game that will test your trigger finger as well as your strategic planning, Lemnis Gate is a refreshing entry into the competitive shooter market, forming a solid foundation full of promise and subtle charm.
My expectations for Lemnis Gate were big, but my curiosity was even better. After all, how could it mix two genres so different in a fun and remarkable game? The answer was laudable, as can be checked in this timing strategy FPS with good gameplay, beautiful graphics and unique mechanics. There are some things that can be improved upon, especially when it comes to the online and balancing, but it's already a recommended option for your library and it may make the most out of its potential in the future.

Lemnis Gate firing on all cylinders can be a delightfully cerebral experience, its time loop concept and diverse character roster paving the way for some truly spectacular moment-to-moment gameplay. It’s just a pity then that at launch, the majority of the player base, at least outside of the higher ranks, seem unwilling to embrace the whacky concept. Given time, though, once a core of dedicated fans develops, Lemnis Gate has the potential to provide a truly novel alternative take on the hero shooter genre.
