Essentially speaking, you’re once again playing an indie platformer where the main aspect of gameplay is leading a clumsy robot who climbs these giant plants by only using his hands, which can generally become very frustrating after a few mistakes that aren’t entirely your fault, but that of the controls.
The game is unforgiving and it doesn’t put up with the player’s nonsense, but it respects the player enough and doesn’t tire him out with its own. Adding to all that is a visual identity that’s a tribute to the 8bit era, but not in a “corny” way, a lively yet borderline aggressive color palette, and adrenalin pumping background music that’s never distracting.
The frustrating chain of trial and error will bring about a swift choice to give up on this strange platformer, more so because the game suffers from a serious case of incompleteness, reflected in multiple glitches and falls through the textures. Add to that sometimes unpredictable command behavior and we get a complete package, ready to be avoided while we dedicate our time to something else.
Something that everyone should try, especially if you're an admirer of fighting games, but not much more than that. This is not a game you'll tell stories about for a long time, so spend a few hours on it, and elegantly forget about it after you're done. The sea of "just above average" is huge and Mother Russia is just about drowning in it.
We've all been waiting for the fourth sequel of what is rightfully considered one of the best, if not THE best PC games of all time. How to reach the level of DeusEx is a question that Edios from Montreal yet again failed to answer perfectly.
Legion is a complete success and only now we see that WoD actually made sense even if some players didn’t like it in the end. WoD was a prologue for the incoming invasion and now it’s up to heroes of Azeroth to organize and save the world from destruction yet again. For Azeroth!
While the old players will probably relive the moments of happiness they hoped for, God Eater 2: Rage Burst probably won’t attract many new fans. Even if it’s great, it’s definitely not for everyone. So we warmly recommend if it’s even possible, let someone who already played the first game lead you into this world first, instead of risking less than a mediocre impression of, deep down, one very good title.
