Extinction Review Summary

WeakCritic Consensus

Early Thrills

Repetitive Action

Generic Fantasy World

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.

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

Extinction is a clumsy and frustrating game that struggles to put its potential to good use.

Extinction is a good blueprint for a more interesting game. I came in excited to slice up some giants, but after the fifth rote exercise I was kind of over it. There are some flashes of brilliance every now and then but the over-reliance on the core energy meter idea keeps it imprisoned in the depths of repetitive arcade territory.

Extinction suffers from bad narrative, innecesary missions and lack of general variety, but its fluid and fun mechanics and fantastic sense of movement, added to great visuals, creates a laudable product that we feel able to recommend.

A good idea (albeit not very original) that doesn't feel as good because of imprecise controls, a camera that constantly gets in the way and a gameplay system that becomes repetitive too son. If this doesn't bother you too much and if you've been looking for an action game that puts you against giant orcs, then Extinction will not disappoint you.
