Critic Reviews for Achilles: Legends Untold
The Greek Myths have been plundered by video game developers to such a degree it's hard to conceive that a fresh take could be even possible. Remarkably, Achilles: Legends Untold offers just that. This action-adventure might be a little rough around the edges, but that arguably adds to its charm. If you can put up with some nasty difficulty spikes then you'll find a remarkable world of myths and legends to explore.
Achilles: Legends Untold is a serviceable indie Soulslike experience with an isometric camera angle that doesn't introduce anything revolutionary. Don't be fooled by the Diablo-esque visual style either, because this is not a dungeon crawling looter. There's no doubt that the game is in a much better state than it was in Early Access, but it still suffers from some core issues with its gameplay mechanics.
Achilles: Legends Untold is a good mix between RPGs with hack and slash action like Diablo and souls-likes in which every checkpoint is an achievement. The wide range of weapons, each with unique characteristics and combat styles, invite experimentation even to just see the animations of the protagonist as he crushes, kills and rips apart enemies. The story set in Greek mythology could only be interesting, and the fights are fun, even if some enemies appear out of the blue due to the absence of zoom. There are no classes - Achilles is Achilles! - but quite different builds can be created.

Achilles: Legends Untold is a safe and standard hack-and-slash dungeon crawler. Its ancient Greek setting and attractive environments help it stand out a bit, but on the whole it’s a formulaic game. The Soulslike mechanics aren’t especially well developed but represent a small element of originality. If fans of the genre can look past the lackluster missions, script and acting, they’ll probably enjoy the action.
Achilles: Legends Untold is a game that knows what it wants to be and achieves it perfectly. It's an ideal mix between the Diablo formula, with an isometric perspective and a very similar way of playing, and the souls genre, with a fairly aggressive but fair difficulty and with a fair and careful learning curve. In addition, whenever you die, you will lose those experience points and have a chance to recover them.

Achilles: Legends Untold feels like there were several great ideas thrown together but were ultimately let down by poor execution. The game has some interesting aspects, like fusing Souls-styled gameplay with a loot-focused action RPG gameplay loop, but the combat never really feels satisfying and the setting is little more than an excuse to get you out there to kill things.
