Fire an array of weapons on each mighty mech arm, or smash enemy units with your massive fists when they stray too close. You’ll need quick reflexes to react to flying and ground foes attacking in never-ending waves, but you’ll need tactics too: each high-tech HUMNX enemy has a different vulnerability.

Seek revenge… or deliverance Choose to be Gabriel or Gabby Walker, experienced combat ace, Archangel test pilot, and last best hope of The Free.

The newly-forged mech AI, M1KL, experiences the world linked to your mind, seeing what you see, feeling what you feel. Together you’ll face overwhelming odds in a desperate battle to deliver this single Archangel prototype mech to the secret resistance facility Deep Mountain. Do you have what it takes to become the people’s deliverance?

Archangel is a game that shows a lot of promise from Skydance Interactive. There's flaws with checkpoints and lip syncing, but the game's presentation on the whole is great and none of that matters when you're piloting the mech. You feel incredibly powerful as you easily brush aside smaller tanks and drones, while battling with larger enemies feel like a proper fight.

The story is cliche, the gameplay is simplistic, and the entire package just doesn't come together in any significant way. Still, the game does look good and when the action is hitting it hits well. If you just want a new action shooter for PSVR this won't disappoint too much.

There's a lot of potential with Archangel, but when so much potential is unrealized, then the end product loses its luster. Archangel is exactly that, starting off with a bang and tapering off too quickly to maintain its level of initial intrigue.
