Eternity: The Last Unicorn
Top Critic Average
If it means having to play Eternity to save them, you're better off letting that last Unicorn go extinct.
Eternity The Last Unicorn is a hot mess of a game with old school graphics and game mechanics that feels more dated than a launch title from the original PS1.
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.
A game that might have had retro appeal, had it been a game released about 10 or 20 years ago. As a modern release it seems far too dated to compete with similar titles.
Eternity: The Last Unicorn is a very simple game. Its story attracts only the ones who are interested in the Norse Mythology. The gameplay mechanics present some critical problems and its presentation can not be considered part of the eighth generation games.

Eternity: The Last Unicorn is a very good action RPG with Challenging combat and beautiful art design. It made me to play over 20 hours to complete every challenge and obtain upgrades and hidden items. it is a very good game for gamers who love to explore every bit of the world and return again and again to the previous locations for obtaining items and powers they couldn't get before. Camera is the biggest problem of the game, but in the end, Eternity: The Last Unicorn is a valuable game that worth your time and money.

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.
There’s just an overall lack of polish to the combat system, storytelling, and flow of gameplay that belies any goodwill I might have carried into this experience.
Whatever it was, I really wish they had taken more time with their game; to truly get a feel for what people enjoyed about games like God of War, Dark Souls, and even Jade Empire. Unfortunately, until the game’s shortcomings are taken care of, I just can’t recommend this one and believe me, in the 15 hours I spent playing it, I really wanted to like it, but just couldn’t do so.
