A fun concept and diverting combat don't make up for how slight and repetitive Slayer Shock is.
Despite the scrappiness, there is something special about this oddball Buffy-alike.
Slayer Shock has more ideas than it has means of executing on them
If Slayer Shock is to have a long afterlife, it will come not from binging, but from slow, careful forays into its Hellmouth.
It's a game with gameplay so rough, breaking the game feels easier and more interesting than actually trying to play it as intended. Ultimately, it's a shame that a game with an idea so promising ends up not only lacklustre, but thoroughly disappointing. Minor Key Games has done better than this, and hopefully, they will do better than this again. Slayer Shock, however, will have to remain as a faux-Early Access oddity of a game.
