Children of Morta is both a masterpiece in art and world design and a great video game. offering an emotional story, Children of Morta show how a family fights darkness together and it's gameplay reminds me of games like Diablo 2 where I couldn't stop fighting and clicking. if you enjoy action RPG games or just simply video games, Children of Morta is a must play.

Besides some difficulty issues with the two-player mode and the melee characters, it’s a pretty great game. Plus the spirit you rescue at the end of the first area looks like a giant floating vagina, so what more could you want?

Like Seraph before it, part of the enjoyment with Children of Morta lies not just in cleverly rampaging through wave after wave of foe, but also in the relief of surviving the ordeal through a measured balance of skill and strategy.
