Reviews Summary

Early Thrills
Repetitive Action
Generic Fantasy World

Summary: A shallow arcade action game, Extinction's core loop fails to satisfy on almost every level. Lackluster presentation and formulaic combos only add to the disappointment for players looking for a good riff on Attack on Titan.

Legend calls them the Ravenii, encroaching armies of bloodthirsty monsters standing 150 feet tall that threaten to destroy mankind. You are one of the world’s last Sentinels, a soldier named Avil equipped with the skills to battle the endless wave of Ravenii. Fight massive brutes and their minions across a sprawling countryside, defending cities and rescuing refugees torn from their homes. Swiftly define your strategy as hordes attack from the ground and air. Use a dynamic skill-based combat system to your advantage, tactically disarming and dismembering enemies to go in for the kill. This is no longer a war. It is an annihilation. And you are all that stands between humanity…and extinction.

Extinction is a sword-slinging, monster-decapitating action game that does a decent job of getting the blood pumping and reflexes twitching. The eye-catching, anime-inspired art will even give you some nice scenery to do it all in. It just never rises to be much more than that, and all the while it's inviting comparisons to other games that do. Extinction lands in that awkward position where, yeah, it's usually fun - but you're not really missing anything incredible by giving it a pass.

Impressive ogre battles and challenging, hectic missions, but I just wish there was a bit more to Extinction.

Fighting giant monsters should never be as dull and formulaic as this cheap and nasty attempt to remind you other better games… and anime.

The David vs. Goliath angle starts out strong, but ends up recycling the concept over and over
