When it's great, Daemon X Machina is a fast and frenetic mech action game with deep customisation options and a killer artistic direction that sets it apart from the rest. But when it's not, it's repetitive mission structure, nonsensical story and facile combat stop it from being the best it could be.

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

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.

Daemon X Machina delivers massive mecha-action in the style of Armored Core, that in fact sets no new impulses to the genre, has to fight with an actual interesting, but weak presented story and could scare off some new entrants with the loadout-mechanics, but actually plays very well and delivers enough inducement to play it beyond the story mode. Fans of Armored Core and mecha-action in general eventually find enough reasons for a buy.

Fans of Armored Core should look past my concerns, and give the game a go. People who want to take the controls of a mech and shred a bunch of underpowered foes will have a good time. The general public should probably give it some extra thought.

Daemon X Machina is the perfect meeting point between Armored Core and Zone of the Enders, offering a quick and exciting gaming system, without sacrificing a good dose of depth and customization.

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

Despite what Nintendo has tried to sold us, Daemon x Machina is a low budget game that have potential, but its lack of ambition is the reason for not being succesful.

Despite being weighed down by a certain repetitiveness (accentuated by the need to repeat missions several times to scrape together parts, equipment, and money) and although it has some technical limitations, Daemon X Machina represents a respectable demonstration of the mech genre that is able to satisfy the hunger for fans

Without reaching excellence, Daemon X Machina remains a breath of fresh air for Nintendo Switch.

Daemon X Machina does very well when it comes to action, while also delivering a strong customization and strategic experience when it comes to planning the next battle and managing resources. The game's plot could certainly have fared better but the overall gaming experience of Daemon X Machina will leave fans of action games overwhelmingly satisfied, especially those who enjoy a good amount of planning and customization.

Daemon X Machina goes beyond the expectations of a mech game with the Outer playing an integral part in tactics and combat.

Daemon X Machina is definitely a fun, adrenaline filled experience, and an impressive one at that. I've never delved into this kind of shooter before, but I would say that I have received a fantastic introduction into the genre with an impressive choice of customisation, satisfying gameplay, and intriguing plot, not to mention fantastic multiplayer... it makes me rather excited for the planned update to add competitive multiplayer modes. Though there are some improvements which could better the replayability further, such as including a scoring system to the missions, I still had a lot of fun playing the game, and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a decent mech shooter for the Nintendo Switch.

Daemon X Machina is fun, fast, with surgical controls, an extraordinary sense of growth and a huge customization of every aspect of the game. Not to mention the galvanizing and powerful sound; however, on the scale we also have sufficient graphics, albeit stylistically refined, and a style of play that requires so much dedication to be fully appreciated.

Daemon X Machina is a fun and frenetic mecha game with a hell of a lot going on. It occasionally gets too busy for its own good, but competently out-Anthems Anthem in terms of gameplay.

There’s nothing quite like it on the Switch that I’ve seen thus far, but I’m hoping Daemon X Machina will pave the way for more.
