    Godfire is an ambitious iOS title that delivers a grand scale combat adventure for iOS that is graphically deluxe with somewhat simplified gameplay making it a should buy.

    Its visuals are easily top-tier, the story is intriguing and the combat system, while a bit monotonous, is still engaging (particularly with a controller). Most importantly, it’s fun, and I think it’s worth playing simply for the visuals and story. Regardless, assuming you can handle the combat and violence, I highly recommend picking up.

    Godfire knows what it wants to be and stylishly executes on it, unfortunately a difficulty curve tweaked to drive IAPs undermines its appeal.

    It doesn’t come as a surprise that Godfire isn’t God of War for mobile devices: however it’s a shame that Vivid Games focused only on some truly impressive graphics while forgetting just about everything else.

    The game features excellent graphics, but unfornunately this is one of the few good aspects we've found in Godfire. This game has an extremely repetitive and easy gameplay that doesn't help to keep our attention high for more than a few hours.

    Prometheus brought the fire of inspiration to mankind at the cost of his own freedom. It's a shame a spark didn't fall on Godfire.

    The game has some of the most gorgeous graphics I have ever seen on a mobile device. This is just pure awesomeness. I also like the mix of ancient and futuristic design.

    As for the game itself - it is similar to a movie summer blockbuster - out there to deliver fun and not much more. As I am a fan of juicy hack'&'slash - this is a game for me. Gameplaywise it is a mix between God of War (mainly due to the the setting) with Dark Souls - with all the gameplay and dying, especially on the higher difficulty levels. Game gives a challenge but beating the hard parts gives you satisfaction.

    Anybody who was expecting God of War because of the graphics should chill out - mobile devices have its limitations. It has to be playable without the physical controller. Here it is very playable.Although not as fast as GoW.

    I am also a fan of other game by the same developer - Real Boxing and with all the love and updates that game received I bet it will be the same with Godfire.

    As for the IAP - they are addition, more like DLC than a necessity. I see nothing wrong with that in a mobile game.
