Critic Reviews for Arkanoid: Eternal Battle

A decent reintepretation of an arcade classic that shines for the single-player Neo mode. Multiplayer options seem tacky and are not very convincing.

Review in Italian | Read full review

The marriage of Arkanoid with the Battle Royale concept is a welcome one and equally warmly received is the inclusion of the classic Arkanoid for older gamers or those who are inquisitive enough to reach back far into those halcyon days of arcade gaming. However, a distinct lack of modes and a seemingly lukewarm player base effectively cut the legs out from under Arkanoid: Eternal Battle's titular and marquee mode.

Outside of the online – which adopts a seasonal format and sees you unlocking new cosmetics as you work through the ranks – there’s a modernised version of single player Arkanoid which includes new power-ups and a combo system, as well as the 1986 original, both with online leaderboards. There’s also a rounds-based versus mode for four-person local multiplayer play. As a whole, the package is well executed, but with an asking price of £24.99/$29.99, it feels a little too light overall to overcome the sticker shock.

Arkanoid: Eternal Battle is saved in the corner thanks to a series of accessory modes that, between classicism and modernity, know how to pay tribute in a dignified way to a work that has made the history of the medium.

Akanoid is a legend that never dies, but its take on the battle royale formula is plagued by some inconsistencies that make the game not as compelling as it could have been.

Arkanoid Eternal Battle is an approachable game that delivers some timeless fun. But much like Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, it's another Taito arcade classic that's taken one step forward, two steps back. It brings less content to the table while asking for more money from the players. With online being something of a ghost town, I suggest waiting for a price reduction.

What feels like the foundation for something ideally more substantial lying in wait, Arkanoid – Eternal Battle can only muster up a competent, but unimaginative, spin on the Taito classic in Battle Royale form.

Arkanoid Eternal Battle mixes the classic brick-breaking formula with battle royale and turns out to be a pretty fun time. Trying to outlast 24 other players and take down a boss at the end is exhilarating and will have me jumping back in from time to time for more.
