Critic Reviews for Echo Generation

There’s a lot I like about Echo Generation. The adolescent youth in sci-fi suburbia story is really charming and aided thoroughly by the game’s gorgeous voxel visuals and delicious soundtrack. There were definitely some parts held down by archaic design decisions, such as the utter lack of a hint system or direction and the need to grind experience, especially on new party members. However, Echo Generation also has a lot of fun tried and true RPG design to it as well. All-in-all, it makes for a game where the good journey, music, and combat will likely overcome most of the distracting missteps you may come across.

Echo Generation may frustrate some players with puzzles with their unorthodox solutions and backtracking. If you can get past those parts, you will find a fun, quirky, and sometimes dark RPG that will keep you guessing just what supernatural or extra-terrestrial being you will be fighting next. If you're a fan of old-school RPGs that deviate from the norm, like Earthbound and Paper Mario, I highly recommend checking out Echo Generation.

Beautiful, funny, and full of heart, Echo Generation is uncompromising in its aims and successful at accomplishing what it sets out to do, even if people without a certain fondness for adventure games and turn-based RPGs might be a bit turned off by its focus.

Voxel-rich graphics. A high-spirited Stranger Things vibe. Clever turn-based quick-time-event combat. But also dopey dialogue, endless fetch-questing, and weirdly placed grind. Echo Generation looks great, tastes half-baked.

Echo Generation is a gorgeous turn-based adventure game with an awesome retro vibe. It doesn’t always live up to the adventure it promises, with combat sometimes feeling too lengthy or repetitive, and it’s not always clear what you should be doing, but if you’re browsing that Xbox Game Pass library and wondering what to try next, or if you’re looking for something that captures that sense of childhood adventure, you should give Echo Generation a try.

‎Echo Generation turned out to be an experience that surprised me for good, thanks to the evil it did to me. This is a title that thanks to its very beautiful aesthetics and its simple narrative, initially makes us believe that we are facing a half casual and relaxed experience, which does not take long to show its sharp teeth.‎

Playing Echo Generation conveys a chiaroscuro of sensations. You are impressed by the beautiful graphics, a very inspired soundtrack and an effective and creative turn-based combat system. On the other hand, however, the numerous structural limitations of a product that with a few more tricks could have proved even more brilliant than it turns out to be in practice do not go unnoticed.

Although Echo Generation might seem unassuming at first, it is packed with depth and interesting ideas. The distinctive combat stops the action from getting stale, making it more involving and exciting than many other turn-based adventure games. The compelling story and host of charming characters help to push everything along, with a few twists and turns along the way. Anyone who is a fan of turn-based adventure games could do a lot worse than trying out Echo Generation.
