Push past its one-note campaign and Last Epoch is an impressive, time-bending action RPG that combines rich customization with modern action.

A versatile build system allows for experiments with deep skill trees and unusual crafting mechanics - but after the initial excitement of creating those builds, momentum fades.

With its emphasis on crafting and trading rather than action, Last Epoch puts the cart before the horse.

I'm hoping 11th Hour has more in store for Last Epoch's future as well. There's a strong foundation to build on, both from narrative and combat perspectives, and more than that, I just want an excuse to spend more time in Last Epoch.

Last Epoch is a great ARPG and while it's still a bit rough in certain areas and with some roughness to be smoothed out in the various game systems and subsystems, it combines admirably the immediacy of Diablo IV and the depth of Path of Exile.

Last Epoch is a compelling, addictive, and above all creative ARPG that more than deserves its place in the genre.

Last Epoch is a worthy mid-point ARPG that has fun with its fantasy time travelling world, and makes crafting and building towards percentage point increases actually rewarding. Even fun!

Last Epoch delivers an innovative ARPG experience with exceptional build customization and accessible crafting, bolstered by its refreshing time travel mechanic. However, a weak narrative, limited character customization, and a repetitive endgame loop somewhat hold it back.

Last Epoch is a hack and slash isometric RPG that is graphically well made but above all accessible to a non-hardcore audience. You progress without great difficulty and dying does not involve any particular penalties as seen in soulslikes. The few and trivial starting classes can generate thousands of different builds thanks to specializations, crafting, perks and talents to be assigned in the skill tree. History, as always, plays a marginal role, but the introduction of time travel makes it interesting to wander through the same regions in various eras. Handling the Endgame will determine long-term success, but at the moment it's an RPG worth checking out.

Last Epoch straddles the midpoint between familiar accessibility and depth. There is plenty enough character customization to reward experimentation and repeated play. The basic, addictive ARPG loop is compelling, even if the narrative is a bit muddled. Once past the first few overly familiar hours, Last Epoch starts to really come into its own as an excellent hack-and-slash with lots of potential and staying power.

Last Epoch is truly the perfect middle ground between Diablo 4 and Path of Exile, but this feature is not enough to make it a masterpiece of action RPGs.

All in all, Last Epoch has grown to become the APRG game for ARPG fans with a very passionate dev team. This can be seen in the moment to moment crunchy gameplay, endless stash tabs, and sort button for every inventory. If you’re a fan of ARPGs, then you have nothing to lose and everything to gain from giving this gem a try.

Last Epoch is an ARPG that puts mechanics first, and does so with a resounding sense of class identity. Its player-friendly design ensures you have all the tools you need for the job, and rivals such as Diablo 4 and Path of Exile 2 would do well to pay attention to some of its smartest innovations.

Last Epoch's few flaws come from it being the first project by an indie team. These include long loading times for maps, server overloads causing wait times to log in, and missing translations and some bugs. But beyond these issues, the game is very rich and extremely fun, reminding me of the excitement of playing Diablo-like games for the first time.

Last Epoch offers a middle ground between its contemporaries in the action RPG genre, offering players plenty of deep character customization options while still managing to stay understandable and approachable. While its story might feel meandering, the endgame content is plenty fun on its own, and its dungeons are some of the most fun bits of content in the entire game.

Last Epoch is a very high quality product, that is clearly the reward of many years of hard work and dedication. Despite not being at the finish line yet, this title in early access far exceeds many in its genre on multiple fronts. It’s a wonderful and full package, and it’s exciting to realize there’s more yet to come. Development is clearly active, releasing a major patch between writing this review and publishing it. I have no qualms recommending it to fans of action RPGs, you will find much to enjoy in this title. There’s no doubt in my mind i’ll keep coming back to try new classes, and new builds. And i’ll definitely get the damn squirrel helmet! So if you’re a fan of this style of game, it’s time kick some dinosaurs in the teeth whilst you journey to the ends of time itself.

Eleventh Hour Games proves with Lost Epoch that greatness can be attained through perseverance, passion, and a clear vision. From the get-go, the game stands shoulder to shoulder with the best in the ARPG genre. It offers hours of high-quality entertainment, featuring deep character progression, diverse gameplay systems, and plenty of fun and challenge. Lost Epoch delivers everything you'd expect from this type of game and more.

All in all, Last Epoch is a decent experience, but nothing more. We particularly appreciate the customization of our characters' abilities and the management of the numerous upgrade systems. On the other hand, the game never manages to shake off the impression of déjà vu it leaves us with. The insipid narrative and its generic bestiary, but above all the game's inability to make us feel competent and powerful, mar our desire to play again. Both in the short and long term.

Last Epoch is an impressive aRPG that features a web of interconnected systems and activities. The game's time in Steam Early Access served its purpose and, rough launch and some rougher edges notwithstanding, it delivers a smooth and enjoyable experience. Not as simple as Diablo 4, and not as complex as Path of Exile, Last Epoch has something for everyone, from the casual dungeon divers to the minmax lovers ready to chase that elusive stat.
