Marvelous's mechfest looks beautiful and plays like a dream on PC, but it's held back by repetitive action.

If you love mecha and miss Armored Core as I do, Daemon x Machina is the game for you. It has some narrative issues, but the tight gameplay will keep you wanting more.

With non-stop action and a near limitless amount of customization. Daemon X Machina is a great mech game that now looks better than ever before.

A stomping, stylish mech game that's classy and clumsy in equal measure.

A gorgeous throwback hampered by uninspired mission design and over-indulgent storytelling.

The combat is a lot of fun and the visuals are dynamic and exciting, but repetitive missions and dire storytelling ruin what is otherwise a mechanically superior giant robot game.

An easy skip, even if you like mecha-infused action

Nintendo Switch gets a mech game with depth in both combat and worldbuilding.

I wanted to like Daemon X Machina, but as I played, I kept wondering how much more fun it might have been if the developers had zeroed in on some of the more enjoyable elements instead of providing so many customization options and wrapping everything in such a convoluted story.

Despite that, the sum total of my experience with Daemon X Machina is positive. The combat is amazing, the game is bright and colorful, the framerate mostly holds up in either docked or handheld mode, and the hangar is great to tinker around in, checking out all the different configurations of my mech. That's what I'm going to remember out of all of this, which is safe for me to say because most everything else in this game is pretty forgettable.
