Critic Reviews for Praey for the Gods
Praey for the Gods is another showcase of what a small team can accomplish when a far larger team won't. While the controls can be occasionally floaty, the pure enjoyment of tackling these puzzle monsters is an absolute joy. Don't sleep on this one – it's worth your time.
Praey for the Gods excels in some aspects but is hampered by a number of tedious mechanics. The boss battles are truly impressive in terms of design and execution and will please fans of SOTC. However, the dated controls make traversal and combat cumbersome. In an attempt to broaden the gameplay, No Matter Studios has added a survival system that is detrimental to the enjoyment. This, along with other needless mechanics, hampers the game. Rather than a tailored, focused adventure, the Praey for the Gods combines too many elements that make this a convoluted experience.
The survival mechanics feel remarkably similar to Breath of the Wild, with item management and weapon degradation taking centre stage. These are reasonably well implemented, but are at odds with the otherwise minimal nature of the game. The devs would have perhaps been wise to focus more on polishing up the boss battles, as these are the true stars of the show.
It is never pleasant to assign an insufficiency, even more so if at the debut of a tiny team that with so much passion faces the market for the first time. Unfortunately, however, Praey for the Gods ends up crushed under the weight of his own ambitions, victim of a fluctuating and problematic realization: even avoiding in any way the direct comparison with his illustrious points of reference, the action-adventure of No Matter Studios is difficult to recommend.
