Critic Reviews for Okhlos
As much as I enjoy the tone of Okhlos and its silly but well-informed take on Greek mythology, its repetitive format and simplistic gameplay hook aren't an engaging combination. I'd like to see every little goofy reference it has to offer, but the motivation to push through the grind just isn't there.
Seriously, can somebody check on me because one of two things has happened – Either I’ve gone insane and these are just the ramblings of a mad man or I’ve finally found a game that lets me release all of that stored up violent, face rolling, nerdy man-rage from all of the rage-inducing games I’ve been playing recently. Thankfully it’s the latter of the two and the irony of it all is that I’ve have found solace in a game called Okhlos, a rogue-like indie “angry mob” strategy game. Okhlos is set in mythological ancient Greece, a land ruled by the all-powerful, take no crap, Gods of Olympus! One vile act of carnage leads to another and the gods do not seem to care for the well-being of the citizens of Greece...
Despite its flaws, Okhlos is still a blast. A game like this thrives in small bursts, and making this a rogue-like was the perfect way to present it. There are no blanket statements I can make about Okhlos except that it’s all about destruction. How you choose to play, haphazard or with more finesse is up to you. You may not sink a million hours into it, but there’s enough game here to make you feel satisfied and coming back every now and again.
