Critic Reviews for Shoulders of Giants

Overall, a nice roguelike game for both single player and multiplayer experiences. It has some rough edges and does not shine under any specific aspect, yet it competent gameplay and lenghty adventure could keep you entertained for a long time.

With a bit of time, Moving Pieces Interactive might be able to smooth out the combat and improve the frame rate. Hopefully, the developers can inject some personality into the characters and maybe flesh out the lore and story too.

Playing Shoulders of Giants is a joy, especially after you unlock some impressive gear and really start to wreak havoc on invading evil forces. When you throw in the lovely environment-transforming visuals and take the fight online, you're left with a winning formula.

Shoulders of Giants is a wonderful surprise.  It’s a third-person action roguelike with a ton of heart.  Great gameplay, stylish graphics, satisfying progression, and a killer soundtrack combine to create a game I loved spending time with.  I know it’s great solo so as long as the co-op runs well this is a title you and your friends won’t want to miss.

Shoulder of Giants is a fun roguelike with tons of customization, immersive planets, and fluid melee combat. It does struggle with world-building and dialogue, and some weapons aren't as fun to use, but there's a lot of fun to be had if you're looking to spend a few hours exploring alien worlds.
