    Dismissing Lords of the Fallen like just a Souls clone would be a huge error: Tomasz Gop's new game manages to conquer its own identity, proving to be a very good game favored by a top tier artistic and graphics compartment. With a wider and more varied world and a lengthier experience, it would have been perfect.

    Beautiful, challenging, brutal. A serious contender to Dark Souls and Darksiders.

    Definitely inspired by the Souls games, Lords of the Fallen still has enough brutal majesty to stand on its own. [Issue#255, p.66]

    Lords of the Fallen copies, but it does so from great sources in a mostly competent fashion, and adds in a few neat systems of its own.

    Lords of the Fallen is a very good game, but its struggle to escape the shadow of the better games that preceded it colors every minute of the experience.

    What it is is a challenging fantasy game with a good sense of progression that is entertaining to play, even if it's got no chance of being remembered as a classic like Demon's Souls and Dark Souls are.

    I couldn’t recommend a purchase of Lords of the Fallen. However, if you are a fan of the masochistic hack-and-slash action RPG genre and wouldn’t mind a change of scenery, or always wanted to try a Souls title but found their barrier to entry a bit daunting, this might be worth a hire to blitz through the campaign one or two times with a few different builds.

It's true that this game is in the same genre as the Souls game, but it also brings its own feel and flavor, and that's much appreciated. This is a very challenging game, but it's also incredibly satisfying once you learn how to defeat a foe. It also has amazing graphics, much better than the Souls games. I look forward to the sequel.

    Good game & a solid entry to compete against Dark Souls.

    This game is far from a Souls clone, although it plays somewhat similarly to the Souls games, it has no issue with establishing it's own identity and can easily hold it's own within the gaming world.

    Solid combat mechanics, sometimes ruined by shifty camera angles, good looking world that really could have benefited from being much larger than it was and a decent progression system that for your first run through, will see you bring to life a strong and unique build to tackle the games fair few bosses.

    The game does have it's issues though, as stated before, the camera seems to play up on occasion, making fights somewhat awkward to due tight corridors or being too close to a boss. The world looks great but, there isn't enough of it to explore and once you hit NG+, you may find yourself no longer struggling with enemies that once gave you trouble, you'll end up obliterating them.

    In essence, the challenge almost strips itself from the game and becomes a power fantasy. That ruined some of the replay value for me and I found myself not enjoying the subsequent play-throughs as much.

    All in all, this game is a solid entry into the ARPG market and a decent contender for Dark Souls. If you're a fan of Dark Souls, you'll feel right at home here. If you're not a fan? This game is far more accessible than it's rival and is a good place to start.

I have abandoned it twice in frustration because I am just not having any fun. I am very surprised that everyone else seems to love this game so much when for one thing the camera is the worst I have ever seen. That is not the only issue, there is no fun in exploring as you are constantly pounced on by multiple powerful enemies that take forever to defeat and drain all your resources. The boss fights go on forever but were not fun or challenging just annoying. I did not want to give up on it as it was a full priced game and one that I was really looking forward to so I came back to it to give it another chance and hung in there for several hours but finally had to surrender to the fact that this is not fun for me. Others seem to love it so make your own choice but I would recommend borrowing it from a friend or waiting for a sale. Expand

    Whats the point of putting a super hard boss you need to fight in the first 10 mins of the game. 3 hits and your dead, you have no health, youWhats the point of putting a super hard boss you need to fight in the first 10 mins of the game. 3 hits and your dead, you have no health, you do no damage to him, Just stupid, there's a reason every other game slowly progresses you to hard and hard stages, it's called common sense.
