Immortal: Unchained only wants to feed on big brands such as Bloodborne, Dark Souls or The Surge. But the developers couldn't understand what makes these titles so special and entertaining. The Xbox One version is pulled down by technical problems. We recommend the title for two out of ten points. It would be better for you to wait a few months for a better hardcore action RPG.

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 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.

There's room for a direct-to-TV rip of the Dark Souls formula, but at a current asking price of $50, Immortal: Unchained is impossible to recommend.

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 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 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.

It wants to be Dark Souls with guns, but gameplay is so repetitive and boring, you will be probably ennuied soon.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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 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 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.

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