    Dead Mage were truly ambitious in targeting one of the most epic game franchises of our generation as their primary influence, something that sounds on paper like a losing proposition from the get-go. But when all is said and done, the defining elements of Garshasp are not its flaws, but the areas where it actually succeeds. Make no mistake: Garshasp is a God of War clone.

    Despite not very positive critics I was considering the game from release date, because I liked the art style and Persian setting. And even though it's not masterpiece in any way, it still is not that bad at all. I was affraid of camera style and difficulty in depth orientation, but it's pretty well done and no problems here occured. Combat feels like it should, combos are both effectiveDespite not very positive critics I was considering the game from release date, because I liked the art style and Persian setting.

Combat feels like it should, combos are both effective and efficient, slight RPG elements are welcome, etc. etc. But what I find the most interesting on the Garshasp is it's visual presentation. I absolutely love the style, atmosphere and environment. It's one of the most beautiful indie games I've ever seen (it reminds me of Zeno Clash in some way). Expand

    The game has some bugs, and the camera angles are sometimes annoying so the controls. However for the first try of the developers the game is good and the art is great. It was really enjoyable to play it, I think Dead Mage has a great future. Finally, I don't regret spending my money on this title.

    If it weren't for technical issues, such as the troubled controls and occassional coughs from the graphical engine, Garshasp could have been a decent copy of games like God of War, which we rarely see on the PC. But the game is filled with beginners mistake, and feels like a developer's first attempt at making a game, which is exactly what it is.

    Garshasp: The Monster Slayer has nothing to keep you playing for hours. The camera sucks, the fights are boring and there is not enough story.

    Garshasp falls short of genre standards in nearly every way, and its shortcomings are too numerous to compensate for. [Sept 2011, p.75]
