    If you thought that on Nintendo’s handheld you’ll get a decent funracer that shows the quality of its’ 360 or PS3 siblings, go look somewhere else.

    While the team deserves praise for the unusual scenario and the equally weird name, the game itself is not as different as it wants to make you believe.

    It was a futile idea to release this on the PC. It just shows you the difference between an entertaining, but meaningless mobile spacetrip and a full-fledged space opera à la Elite. In this case almost everything is missing.

    While the core in theory is as charming and captivating as it was on Wii the technical shortcomings make this story a very short-lived tale.

    The concept is interesting, the execution is frustrating. The journey through the pixelated limbo for videogame heroes sparks your curiosity, but what remains is a lukewarm collection of quiz- and minigames.

    While the concept still works on the console the greatest horror lies in the technical execution, which is really terrifying with its frame drops, lowres textures and meager sound design.

    In times of The Witcher or Dark Souls this is hard to bear. The dialogue is below daily soap standards, the fighting system as superficial as any, visuals are outdated. This is gruesome.

    It could have been an alternative to Mario Kart. But without online play and balancing issues this one decent fun racer becomes a frustrating racer.

    It could have been a decent game, if the fighting system would be more refined, if the AI would react better. Like this it is little more than a tech demo to show the immense power of CryEngine 3. And as this, it is very powerful.

    It might look like its big brethren, but this is an uninspired light version of everything that made the franchise successful.

    So this is what it looks like if Compile Heart looks at Dynasty Warriors and Monster Hunter and tries to put it into the Gamindustri universe. If it wouldn’t be for the sort of interesting team battles and the nurturing of the characters this would be a total failure.

    Good idea, bad delivery. Unfortunately the very interesting story premise is not enough to fuel this pixel platformer.

    Rare, what happened to you. Once you brought us gems like GoldenEye, Conker or Donkey Kong Country. And now? Now you bring us… This…

    It has its moments. But there are too few and they are not spectacular enough. The one-dimensional action seems even more inappropriate on the big screen. It just is not interesting.
    • 60 Metascore

    If you ignore the slight framerate problems, this is the first impressive showing of the visual capabilities, an interesting taste of what is to expect in the new generation. Unfortunately the mechanics suffer – up to the point where the game gets plain boring.

    I hardly identified with the protagonist in any other game as much as I did here: I just want to leave this godforsaken, boring and ugly place as much as he does.

    I was thinking long and hard if I should ignore this game or trash it. But in the end it cost me too much time and too much nerves. It starts well: The presentation reminds you of Blizzard and I like the idea of slow paced progress. But when it comes to balance or rather: lack thereof it shows you how far Whale Rock Games actually is from Blizzard.

    How to fall asleep – that would be a more suitable title. Or: Uncle Kovac’s island hopping for stressed out zombie tourists… You will stumble over the occasional good idea. But good execution should mean more to development than another way to dismember the undead.

    While the mech construction is almost decent the action is far from it. Visually and mechanically this is bottom tier.

    Mythic said they want to treat the source with respect. They said, that the ultimate rpg series returns. But is is a slap in the face at the latest when you are invited to watch a trailer for FIFA. The paywall come later and are not as evident as in Dungeon Keeper, but nonetheless this is fantasy fastfood that result in aversion instead of immersion.

    Good ideas, frustrating result. While the concept is ambitious, the clumsy controls ruin the fun.

    At its content core, this a beautiful conversion of a very polarizing game. But with more technical problems than expected for the first time this game also feels very old.

    With its focus on lackluster hack&slay fights and an interesting but totally underutilized narrative Gladiolus’ solo adventure doesn’t seem to fit into the big FF15 picture.
    • 58 Metascore

    It is hard to associate this dungeon crawler with the once fearsome name it carries. This is a bland hack&slay with little variation and even less horror.

    Despite nice visuals Defenders of Ardania has no chance of competing with games like Defense Grid, Sol Survivor or Anomaly. The balancing is below par, you hardly need any tactics and the interface is just poor.

    The battle system is catastrophic. Otherwise the 4X-system works. Which makes the ugly and confusing military confrontations even more annoying.
    • 58 Metascore

    It has its moments, but they are too few so in the end the real horror lies in the monotonous game design.

    I haven’t been this disappointed with a Nintendo game since Wii Music. Superficial tech demos camouflaged as mini games. If at all, the fun is very short-lived.

    For educational purposes or as an installation in a museum this could be interesting. But as a a game it is disappointing. [Tested with Oculus Rift and Vive]

    There are zombies? Really? I don’t care. I’d rather die than to stay on the beautiful island Panai where all I can do is participate in a boring fight for survival, filled with collectable overkill and horrible quest design.
