The game is very addictive, the graphics are really vibrant and great despite its post-apocalyptic backdrop. The missions offer a nice variety and can be replayed to get better ranks. The crafting system is simple and fun. The gameplay is solid and very entertaining. After reading my Earth’s Dawn review you’ve surely realized this is a must-have on PS4, so be sure to download it today!
This is like if you took Earth Defense Force, Starship Troopers and Guardian Heroes and tossed them into a blender. A wonderfully action packaged game, tons of fun combat and a vast customization system, Earth's Dawn is well worth the price of admission.
Earth’s Dawn is a stylish action RPG with a few noticeable flaws that prevent it from achieving greatness. Its complex skill tree, exhilarating boss fights and in-depth crafting mechanics will keep some players busy for a long time, but others may be discouraged by the game’s repetitiveness and annoying difficulty spikes.
Earth’s Dawn isn’t as a good as Odin Sphere, or even at the same level. It doesn’t have to be though. This is clearly a more budget focused title and it shows. All things considered, it’s one of the more fun and addicting games I’ve played this year, and surprisingly so. A game I almost didn’t give a second glance, and here I was being pulled away from other huge heavy holiday games. It offers a lot of content to work through, and for the price, players could do much worse this year.
A competent 2D hack and slash with a great manga aesthetic and a deep crafting system. It's not going to blow you away, but there are hours of content to get through if you get hooked on the gameplay. Otherwise, you might find the repetition a little grating by the end of the game.
Whilst there's a lot of enjoyment to be found from carving the aliens into tiny pieces, the campaign offers nothing of real consequence. Earth's Dawn feels like a game that could have been improved using permadeath or more significant time management implementation. Instead, we've got a fun, if disposable beat ‘em up.
Earth’s Dawn is a good Side Scrolling Brawler. With the freedom to evolve your character as you see fit for the missions ahead, the mission based structure can be useful even if it is repetitive allowing you to quickly go in and out of missions in order to obtain materials for new gear or to simply waste time for the next large scaled mission.
Earth's Dawn is a solid little title with a few minor niggles that hold it back from being a great title. On the surface, the game appears quite simple and yet the combat, skills and crafting make for quite a deep and intriguing game with many gameplay and combat possibilities.
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.

There is plenty to like about the combat in Earth’s Dawn, but the game doesn’t manage to reach its full potential. A boring story gives players very little reason to care about what they are doing or reason to progress, and the game ultimately becomes monotonous due to this. Those who enjoyed Odin Sphere will find an intriguing game here, just one that isn’t nearly as special or polished.
The foundations of a fast-paced and well worked action RPG are alive and well in this post-apocalyptic wasteland, but Earth's Dawn is let down by repetition and difficulty spikes. If you can stomach the negatives and keep chipping away at the release's robust progression systems, you'll find an impressive amount of depth and enjoyment to be had in forging your super solider – but you'll never quite shake the feeling that this could and should have been a better game than it is.
Interesting but repetitive action/adventure that could have been much better with a little bit of imagination on its missions and combat system.

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 a poor man's Odin Sphere, but a decade too late. Crafting and upgrading might help elevate spirits throughout your playthrough, but the combat and execution prevents Earth's Dawn from being anything special.
Earth's Dawn has an unusual visual style and an enjoyable role-playing system, though a boring plot, poorly developed characters and a hundred of silly side quests reducing all efforts to zero. It is a good game for killing your time, but the developers forgot to release a portable version, with which its short sessions would be much more appreciated.

A game which offers a lot of depth for player choice, but poor execution makes all the effort feel pointless. Earth's Dawn tries to make up for its lack of content with too much repetitive gameplay.
