  • Steam achievements.
  • Fun to play.
  • Difficult but rewarding gameplay.
  • Cache point where it acts like a bonfire, Level up, respawn enemies etc.
  • Earn “souls”from enemies and level up your stats.
  • When you die you lose your “souls” but can go back and claim them with your next life just like in Dark Souls.
  • Multiple enemy tpes from tanks to fast ninja movers.
  • Decent soundtrack.
  • Interesting lore.
  • Dash button to traverse small gaps.
  • Combat is tight, Like in Dark Souls you have to learn the enemy pattern and counter.
  • Very atmospheric and the levels look really good.

Cons:

  • Minimal graphic options.
  • Movement is all done with the left stick meaning it can cause issues like you walking backwards and not looking the right way.
  • Reading some of the pop up is difficult.
  • The game is quite short and can be clocked in a few hours.
  • Hit detection sometimes feels a little bit off.
  • No proper stagger animations.
  • Very much a cut down Dark Souls.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
