    Despite a recent update that fixed that control issues that plagued its initial launch, The Relic remains a sub-par title that lacks both realistic animations and a sense of enjoyment that would compel us to keep playing.

    Despite having a long, rich history supporting the Action-RPG, The Relic strikes out on its own and manages to get lost in the wilderness in the process; hold off on this one till updates address its core gameplay.

    Although its control problems do much to limit its appeal, The Relic equally suffers from a clich├ęd plot, samey combat and uninspiring gameplay.

    As for the game, well, it's god-awful.
