“Don’t get greedy.” Wiser words from my younger brother have never been more true. These are truly words to live by as unlike the Souls series that it takes inspiration from, Immortal Planet follows some of the tenants of the creator’s earlier title of Ronin which is a turned based platformer that involved plenty of thinking before committing to actions. How did that line of thought transfer over to an adventure hack and slash? Very well.
Immortal Planet is the devs love letter to Dark Souls and a must play for fans.
Immortal Planet manages to capture the elusive greatness of the Souls series from a new perspective.
I’ve made quite a few comparisons between Dark Souls and Immortal Planet in this review, and to be honest it’s been a little unfair – after all, Immortal Planet is a much smaller game by an even smaller team. It’s more of a bite-size edition of the game that manages to capture the feel of the Dark Souls series, but not the essence. That being said, fans of FROM Software’s much loved series will certainly have fun Immortal Planet. It’s far from perfect, but its satisfying combat mechanics and introduction of its own unique ideas certainly help it offer a thoroughly enjoyable take on Dark Souls’ tough as nails formula.
Immortal Planet is a game which needs more improvements before I can recommend people to play it. The idea behind the game is really promising. The artwork, sound effects...all in all this is NOT a bad game. What I'm trying to say is that it needs improvement before it can be called a good game. I sit in the middle right now. But if you like Souls-like games, and if you like challenges you should give it a try.
Get your controller out for this one, folks. It says recommended – I would check that in as mandatory. Take a breath, ease up on the button mashing, and follow the Old Man in our look at Immortal Planet. Currently available on Steam for the very reasonable price of 14.99 USD.
Immortal Planet is Dark Souls remade for isometric view. It can be difficult at times and requires plenty of kill, level up, die, repeat. If you need to relax after getting you lower back kicked in Dark Souls, Immortal Planet might be just for you.

The combat in Immortal Planet is so satisfying that it's a must-have for any Souls fan, especially if you want a retro take on the formula.
There are a few moments of frustration, but there are also times where it – dare I say it – surpasses Dark Souls in my mind. At the very least, it's a colourful, compelling, sci-fi Souls-like, and a great way to pass the time while waiting for FromSoftware's next announcement.
Immortal Planet is a decent game with a beautiful minimalistic art style and challenging battles, although it's unbalanced and confusing on many occasions.
