Moonfall Ultimate - Official Announcement Trailer
The result of merging together Diablo and Golden Axe should have been brilliant. It's a shame then that Moonfall Ultimate falls a long way short of that expectation. With more of a focus on explosive arcade combat this could have been a fun diversion, as it stands however there's far too many frustrating issues to see you to the end of its limited run time.
Moonfall Ultimate is a 2D hack and slash that draws inspiration from a wide variety of games, including several not necessarily of its genre. Unfortunately it doesn't manage to reach an even remotely comparable level to any of them, and despite a decent plot, Moonfall Ultimate has very little to go for it when it comes to gameplay mechanics, combat experience and overall involvement of the player.

Like so many action-RPGs before it, Moonfall Ultimate is driven by the minutia of its combat model, but considering battles often rely on one attack (regardless of weapon) and a handful of special moves, you're left feeling oddly unempowered and frustratingly disconnected. There's your usual mix of quests to undertake, various medieval-style locations to explore and loot to collect, but none of it ever offers an interpretation you haven't seen done better elsewhere; while the game calls upon the likes of Golden Axe and Dungeons & Dragons for inspiration, it never hits the same heights. A serviceable experience, but one that won't linger in the memory for long.
