Top Critic Average
Playing through this title feels like the result of some talented friends sitting around, talking about their dream game. While this could have resulted in a confusing gaggle of goofiness, Eternal Step is a worthy experience.
Despite its flaws, Eternal Step isn't a terrible little indie game if you're a fan of the roguelike genre. It has enough gameplay depth to keep things fresh, at least for a while. I recommend checking it out for yourself, and look forward to seeing what future updates bring.
Eternal Step is a strange case of having mixed concepts of very good and very lacklustre design. All things visually will hurt the eyes of many, from the unflattering and indecisive text, to the poor and flat creatures and environment. Luckily, things balance out thanks to good combat and gameplay structure. The soundtrack is memorable, and the constant struggle for equipment economy will make strategists prepare hard, as they and the many other brave heroes challenge the unforgiving Eternal Step.
