Overall, Immortal: Unchained is a very good game in my opinion. It has a great mix of difficulty, RPG, and a story that will make me want to continue playing this game until I have beaten it. I have spent several hours in the game and love the level design and the gameplay itself. The game itself comes in at $49.99 USD and is now available on PC through Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Immortal: Unchained takes the Souls formula and applies a sci-fi setting with an interesting focus on ranged combat rather than the genre's usual melee spotlight. Unfortunately it's let down by numerous bad design decisions, and a major lack of polish throughout, alongside plenty of frustrating elements. It's not a terrible game, it's just not a great one either.

Immortal: Unchained is a bold experiment that paid off in the end. Besides some small technical issues and a sometimes terrible aim tracking mechanic you'll get a solid Third-Person-Shooter with the Souslike elements we know and love integrated. The depth and fascination of Dark Souls is mostly missing but this game has potential to create and fill a new niche in the Action RPG Genre.

Immortal Unchained joins the family created by From Software and does so with the intention of considering something capable of offering us a unique nature: combat by means of firearms. An interesting title, capable of frustrating the most experienced and that has good ideas, although not all are well executed. If you like challenges, don't hesitate to give it a try.

A rather humdrum, err, Hyper Light Drifter clone, that falls just short of being one of the best RPGs of 2018.

Immortal: Unchained is an intriguing premise ' the concept of a sci-fi soulslike based on firearms ' ultimately turned into one of the worst video games in years: a game that's uninspired, ill-conceived and at times completely broken. Do yourself a favor and stay away from a frustrating experience that simply isn't worth your time and money.

Immortal: Unchained isn't inherently an awful game, but it has very little going in its favour. Its level design is one shining beacon among a sea of bang average gameplay, unacceptable technical flaws, and a combat system that does little to distinguish itself from its inspirations. Those enamoured with the Souls formula may discover something to like, but they'll have to sort through a mountain of mediocrity to find it.

Immortal: Unchained is a fun and challenging third-person action RPG Souls-like on PS4 that you're going to enjoy if you're a fan of this new genre. There is no difficulty setting so all players need to be on high alert as they explore each area, so that death is not as frequent and you can start to build up a powerhouse with the bits you collect to upgrade the Prisoner so that you can save the universe!

Ultimately, Immortal: Unchained serves to highlight one thing above all else. Every frustrating aspect of the Dark Souls experience is tolerated and even praised by its fans because the underlying combat system is so fantastically well-realised.

Immortal Unchained takes elements of From Software titles and successfully incorporates them into a sci-fi shooter. Unfortunately, the other aspects of the game are not as well thought out or executed, leaving one to wonder what could have been. If you're a Souls fan, who also enjoys the occasional shooter, definitely check out Immortal Unchained and absolutely pick it up when it's on sale. At $45 USD this game is a slightly overpriced.

Immortal Unchained is a bad third-person shooter and a boring Souls-like. Its execution is poor enough to make you realize that Dark Souls-with-guns isn't actually as cool as it sounds.

After playing Immortal Unchained for over 35 hours, i must say that it is one of my best experience of a souls-like game. Developers of the game are so brave that took a risk to create a shooter based on Souls elements and rules, and it is a start for "shooter souls-like" games, but the first one is always the most important one. despite of many issues in technical, difficulty balance and boss fight design, Immortal Unchained is fun enough to entertain a veteran souls-fan for over 35 hours. But the most important point about playing Immortal Unchained is that "if you want to see the real potential of Immortal Unchained and feel the points that i spoke about, you must play it 3-4 hours at least, because in the first 1-2 hours, the game felt some weird, but after 3-4 hours, it shows you its depth, little by little. You can't judge a game with 40 hours content, based on its first hour and give it a 4!!

Immortal: Unchained tries to survive in a futuristic Dark Souls universe but it dies trying due to its terrible attempt to be hard and its problems when we try to manage the histamine bar.

Despite not having its own identity, Immortal Unchained offers exactly what it proposes in its playable aspect. Any fan of 'Dark Souls'- like games will appreciate this game for its level design and fine tuned difficulty, despite its technical shortcomings.

Immortal: Unchained could have been an original take on the soulslike genre, but it's too buggy and imperfect to be a fully enjoyable mix of action RPG and shooter mechanics.

Immortal: Unchained has a long way to go and though this may have been its full release, it really should still be in Beta as they tweak the engine to provide some semblance of the promised third-person shooter/hardcore action-RPG.

Immortal: Unchained got an essence of Dark Souls, it manages to capture this magnificent horror-mystic atmosphere. But the game's so undercooked that it's hard to recommend it to anyone right now.

Immortal: Unchained is a reasonable game. It brings graphics presentation that does not impress and an uninteresting story. The gameplay mechanics similar to the Souls franchise end up catching your attention, but the technical problems ruin the game experience.

An ambitious venture for a low-budget indie studio, but one that manages to stand out in the crowd despite its flaws.
