Earth's Dawn could be a far better game than it is if it were just a bit more focused and refined. A lot of issues with the game could have been fixed by just making the missions something you could do in each level at your own pace without loading them separately one at a time from the main menu. The level design lends itself to Metroidvania-like gameplay, but the missions themselves just drop you into the map and tell you exactly where to go and what to do, versus just letting you roam freely and do as you wish completing missions along the way.Even with its flaws, I think many people will enjoy Earth's Dawn, but I don't expect it to be a hit or even a cult classic. If anything those starved for something similar to Odin's Sphere or an RPG-style beat 'em-up might get some enjoyment out of it, while most will find the repetition a bit too much.

Earth's Dawn is the perfect example of a videogame with good ideas. It is entertaining, however, it does not achieve the goal to become a big installment in the genre. It is good, but not great.

Interesting but repetitive action/adventure that could have been much better with a little bit of imagination on its missions and combat system.

On paper, it’s a generic story but as the game goes on it serves to be just interesting enough to make it give the player some extra drive.
