The Technomancer is the equivalent of a cheesy 90's sci-fi action flick mashup; think Steven Seagal's Under Siege meets Jesse Ventura's Abraxas: Guardian of the Universe all set in the dusty red planet of yesteryear's classics like Total Recall or Dune. For as grand as that sounds, fans of past Spiders titles may be a bit disappointed in the lack of varied gameplay between titles. Others that are new to the universe may be a bit let down by the lack of depth, yet carried along by a decent supporting cast, an interesting and fun if trope-y story, and stellar world-building. While Technomancer may not be deep, overly fulfilling, or entirely sophisticated, it does contain an abundance of charm. Charm not unlike your favorite campy films of years gone by.
With a unique cast of characters, shared gear, an emphasis on crafting for gear upgrades, and a deep and complex combat system The Technomancer is a surprising newcomer in a genre that is normally populated with games featuring mages, dragons, castles and the like.
Spiders Studio has escaped its own shadow with The Technomancer. While the game is not perfect, and isn't a match for the kings of the genre llike Mass Effect of The Witcher, it still can be enjoyable.

Although almost every aspect has been done in more depth elsewhere, its narrower scope allows the game to stand up well as a title for players to just sit back and enjoy without being overwhelmed like the big budget titles have the propensity to do.
Rough around the edges, but still a fun romp for those looking for varied RPG settings.

. The story is enjoyable enough to push forward but it’s not going be something you look back on fondly in a few weeks. The Technomancer‘s plot and characters are just not that interesting.
The Technomancer is a formidable recommendation to players searching for engrossing adventure and gameplay, despite its rough edges and odd technical eccentricities.
The Technomancer is an overwhelmingly average title, filled with questionable design choices, and agonizingly painful, roller coaster-like difficulty.
The Technomancer presents a decent story line that's hard to enjoy as it's hidden behind an average world and cumbersome combat.
At its heart, The Technomancer is an inspiring attempt at what open world action RPGs can be. It doesn’t always succeed at what it tries to do, but its ambition often makes up for its missteps.
