Eternity: The Last Unicorn is a less-than-magical mix of misplaced PS1-era nostalgia and shallow Dark Souls mimicry. Nearly everything about the game, from its fixed camera angles, to its clunky combat, to its copious backtracking is broken or irritating in some way. If challenge is all you're looking for in a game, perhaps Eternity: The Last Unicorn is for you. Everyone else will likely find it as fun as a sharpened horn to the eye.
Eternity: The Last Unicorn is not a great game. It's a game that takes from Norse mythology, but doesn't really go deep enough to make you feel like you're on a viking adventure. You can't skip the cut scenes, the camera is the hardest boss in the game, and it just doesn't live up to the games it emulates. I like you Eternity, I just wanted better.
Eternity is a misfire. It's such a pity to see a project that had such good intentions fall to the wayside, but it's hard to share the feeling that for a new developer, making its first game, Eternity is an overreach in just about every way. I'm sure we'll see something much more refined and mature next time around.
