If we were to evaluate exclusively the ultra Age combat system we would not hesitate to say that it is a small pearl. Unfortunately, however, we find ourselves having to consider the entire package and it is therefore impossible not to take into account the serious problems of this production, ranging from level design to the graphic sector, passing through some very questionable gameplay choices.

Ultra Age is a graphically dated action game, but it has a combat system that can offer an interesting rate and level of challenge.

Ultra Age is a really fun fast-paced action game that shouldn’t be missed by fans of the genre. It may be lacking in certain areas but makes up for it with its addictively satisfying combat mechanics. The game will take about 6-7 hours to complete, so it is not the longest and there isn’t much replay value. But the visuals are amazing and a real testament to what indie developers are capable of at the moment.

I suppose most players’ enjoyment from Ultra Age will be tied to whether or not they find the game’s shortcomings intention, or unintentional; charming or breaking. I am writing this review from the point of view that Ultra Age is an intentional throwback to early PS2 third person action games. The look and tone is hilarious and non-sensical, but the gameplay is tight. So if you’re looking for something similar to a Devil May Cry, but thought Onechanbara was terrible, Ultra Age might be what you’re looking for. It plays better than something like Deadly Premonition, but doesn’t have quite the intentional derp of Metal Wolf Chaos. I’d say it sits nicely in the realm of something like God Hand. And if this is just a poorly presented game, it fooled me, and is still tons of fun to play.

Ultra Age is a solid indie hack-and-slash effort that delivers some fast-paced combat and a handful of unique mechanics to keep its battles interesting. It may have some ropey voice-acting, the graphics have predictably been dialled back on Switch and there's the occasional frame rate wobble here and there, but overall this is a surprisingly decent budget effort that's well worth taking a look at if you're hankering for some Devil May Cry-style action.

Ultra Age, considering its limitations, is a good action game that suffers from its excessive and unfulfilled ambition at some points. Combat is its best quality, therefore, it is recommended for those who like the genre and can accept an option with a lower budget.

I had a blast with Ultra Age and will continue to play this long after this review is written and posted. Even though its narrative is a little thin in its 15+ hour runtime, it truly is the stylish and adrenaline pumping combat that keeps you coming back for more and elevates Ultra Age to the tier of great Switch titles.

Ultra Age certainly offers a unique experience, making it a great addition to the action genre. The elaborate look and the frantic combat are its biggest highlights. Even so, the impression is that the game is not fully exploiting its potential, which can be corrected in a possible sequel.

As it stands Ultra Age is one of the most impressive small-scale 3D action games you can get a hold of.

Ultra Age executes a very fun and engaging combat system with bosses that were unique and great to fight. However, introducing so many combat mechanics with its many swords and never using them during boss fights is a major letdown. The story was basic and the dynamic of Age and Helvis never grew over the journey in the many boxed-in levels. Thus, I can not recommend this game since the only enjoyment to be found is in its combat. But the game never felt boring, and it shows the clear ambitions that weren’t executed well by two indie studios. While I won’t remember the journey Age and Helvis went through in the years to come, I will remember the fun I had with its combat.
