    Unepic manages to successfully fill the gap between today and classic video games of the past as The Maze of Galious.

    Unepic is another little gem in the indie world. Definitely difficult, his retrò style is delightful, and absolutely irresistible for old school games fan. An epic game, that's for sure.

    Wii U gets a challenging game, fun, addictive and full of surprises, that becomes one of its best downloadable titles.

    A challenging and funny retro adventure in classic MetroidVania style.
  5. 80
    Unepic is a solid game that holds up very well throughout. It offers up a stiff challenge, while maintaining a sound sense of humour, and will go down especially well with those of us that remember (or still play) all-night Dungeons & Dragons sessions.

    Unepic won't save Wii U neither Nintendo, but it can represent a really interesting precedent in this much criticized console's struggle to survival.

    This isn't a game suitable for all palates: due to its difficulty and peculiarity, the title is highly recommended to all the fans of Metroidvania-like games, and in general to those who are looking for a challenge and want to do keep their hands well trained while waiting for Dark Souls 2.

    Unepic may not stand out as one of the more original titles in the genre but it does what it sets out to do very well, offering plenty of addictive exploration, challenging combat and fairly in-depth character customisation.

    A fine conversion of one of the best indie games released so far in PC years ago. Decent use of the GamePad capabilities, sharp graphics and nice new touches.

    With much to explore and so many ways of storming the castle’s inhabitants, Unepic is a fun and well-designed challenge for those who enjoy platformers and yon hefty olde RPG feel. Its tight and rewarding core makes it a quest that can be enjoyed along with, or even in spite of, its cheekier sense of humour.

    UnEpic comes to Wii U basically unchanged, but with a couple of interesting new features. By the way, it's still a blast for all the metroidvania fans.
  12. Requires a forgiving gamer to see it from start to end. [March 2014, p.78]

    Its sharp wit and bevy of nerd-culture references offset the frustration that arises from an unrelentingly challenging dungeon crawler.
  14. Feb 3, 2014
    It can be quite frustratingly difficult at times, and the constant geeky references to everything from Star Wars to the worlds of Gary Gygax may not sit well with everyone – one particular misfiring side quest involving bureaucrats may be enough to turn off some gamers – but for those who enjoy old school platform action, this generously sized Spanish-crafted effort will be manna from heaven.
  15. Jan 27, 2014
    This individual effort by the name of Unepic triggers a craving for exploration in an action-platform and adventure style, akin to the early Castlevania games. There are shortcomings and points which require a greater polishing, but the elements are all here to become an instant hit with its audience.

    Unepic is a standard dungeon crawler with standard combat, enhanced by its goofy characters and story. If you’re in the mood for a game that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and don’t mine the occasional weed/D&D/Star Wars joke, then Unepic might be for you. However, if you’re looking for an engrossing RPG with deep mechanics, your time is likely best spent elsewhere.
  17. Feb 25, 2014
    It is a work with a satisfying narrative projection, based on good moments of humor, right battle system and fully adjusted to the GamePad Wii U.
  18. 50
    In the end, it's all right there in the title. There's nothing here to elevate it above mediocrity.

    Unepic is a perfectly serviceable platform-RPG, but Unremarkable might have been a more apposite title.

    An excellent game, bought the PC version. Saw it released on the Wii-U and picked it up. I'm putting a lot more time into the Wii-U version. I find the inventory on the gamepad easier to work with, especially when shifting between weapons. Unepic does a good job of mixing classic RPG, Questing, Platforming and Crafting. The game play is more on the casual side with lots of humor (teen/adult) in the mix. Full Review »

    Unepic is about as far from actually being, erm, unepic as you can possibly imagine. Having released here in the UK only a few short days ago, I perhaps unsurprisingly couldn't find much in the way of reliable reviews through the usual channels, but having been genuinely intrigued by it's backstory and eShop trailer, I decided to take a punt on Unepic anyway. And long story short, I'm absolutely thrilled that I did, because this game is really rather special.

    I'll endeavour to leave more detailed impressions once I've finished the game, and experienced at least two of it's three different endings. In the meantime however, I just wanted to write a line or two for those still on the fence as whether to grab this one or not. Well, as you might have guessed, my advice on the matter is overwhelmingly straightforward -- if you're a fan of 2D metroidvania-style games, platformers, RPG's, adventures, exploration, or just plain old addictive gameplay, then this ones a no-brainer, and you should jump right into Unepic with confidence. Yep, this one is an absolute belter!

    Hope this helps!

    Game is funny and really fun. Can't wait for a sequel. Was super surprised at how good it was. I think it was just released to the tacos store so I'm going to get it there too, it's that good. Full Review »
