Critic Reviews for Scathe

Scathe has everything you can expect from a DOOM/DOOM Eternal emulator, but it has several structural flaws that make it a hellish FPS in which you shoot well but you don't have much fun.

Scathe is a serviceable shooter with a few nice touches, but there's little to set it apart from other Doom-likes.

Scathe is definitely not flawless. The bosses aren't great, optimization could use some work, and the music, while good, lacks variety. But traversing the infernal labirint and slaughtering dozens of demons is good fun, the guns feel satysfying to use, and the game definitely knows how to keep you on your toes.

You're trapped in a maze-like Hell in Scathe, but while the shooting is solid, the rest of the game may put you into a haze.

I appreciate what Scathe was clearly aspiring to be, but it doesn't reach those aspirations. Its sprawling, directionless levels were no substitute for a more tailored experience with a difficulty curve and intended order of obtaining new weapons and spells. Flooding the stages with enemies and hazards that appear out of thin air felt unfair more often than not, and the lives system and scarce health pick-ups only slowed down what is intended to be a fast-paced experience. If you enjoy DOOM and FPS's inspired by it and want to play it co-op with your friends, there is some enjoyment to be had, but there are better-designed co-op shooters on the market that are more deserving your time.

Scathe has a lot of clever and interesting ideas. Unfortunately, it's the execution that lets it down. Somewhere underneath the agonizingly-slow progression, pointless plot, and a visual mess as a result of its desire to also be a bullet hell, Scathe is a game with potential that's sadly never reached.

While the gameplay concept of a labyrinthine shooter holds some promise, the gunplay is flat and mowing through enemies is extremely tedious. On top of this, graphics and some technical issues make Scathe feel rather rough around the edges.

Scathe is a good first-person shooter for anyone who loves the genre and appreciates a challenge. The story is good enough and the combat feels visceral. Moving through the same rooms can become repetitive but the FPS mechanics are good enough to keep players engaged.
