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 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.

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.

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.

And although there are many deficiencies, balance and design problems in this game, developers manage to keep the users' attention due to the well-designed atmosphere, strong opponents and the Souls concept, where battles with dangerous enemies are filled with adrenaline.

This has to be one of the more original Dark Souls-like games available, and anyone looking for a fresh take on the formula will be able to find enjoyment in Immortal: Unchained as long as they are willing to overlook a fair lack of polish.

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!

A solid game in need of some better balancing, Immortal can be unfair but it’s still worth a play for Souls fans.

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.

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

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 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.

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.

Toadman Interactive's new Souls-like Immortal: Unchained throws firearms into the increasingly predictable genre of gloomy action-RPGs.

Strangely enough, I like quite a few elements of Immortal: Unchained; the deeper focus on story is personally welcomed, even if admittedly it got a little confusing at times, and the level design is honestly some of the best I've seen in a Soulslike experience that didn't come from From themselves.

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 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.

The addition of guns to the "souls" formula and a Sci-Fi setting make for an interesting concept on paper, but poor enemy AI, clunky menus, repetitive combat and very poorly designed levels result in an experience that's more frustrating than fun.

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