Driven Out Indie Game Reveal Trailer
Cinematic animations are integrated beautifully with Driven Out's precise controls, but the game lacks polish when it comes to making you feel positive about progress. Still, its short challenges are great testing grounds for your sword skills and combat is clean, especially against the larger bosses.
The core gameplay of Driven Out proves solid and satisfying, and is enhanced by some super nostalgic retro sensibilities. Yet, the combat just seems a touch too slow on your part and imbalanced in favor of your AI opponents, which tends to make it tough to stick with the basic, somewhat repetitive gameplay in the long run.
