    It's derivative, only has three zones, and doesn't have much to offer besides its combat, but Godfall will be enjoyable to anyone who just wants a well-tuned, good-looking action RPG to slash their way through.

    Godfall currently feels very familiar: it unashamedly borrows the loot system that made Destiny and Borderlands great, attempting to mix it with hardcore Souls-like melee combat. In the first few hours, this makes the game feel a little dull. But the core mechanics feel well built and could act as a stable base for the game’s more interesting character building and co-op dynamics, of which I’ve currently only scratched the surface.

    Godfall is another Anthem, although, due to its intense combat system it could have been so much more.

    Godfall can be an enjoyable and lovely gear-based action game while it lasts, but the repetition of its missions wears thin before the end of its campaign, and even thinner in the endgame afterward. Its combat is packed full of decisions to make and a healthy mix of familiar and genuinely novel mechanics, but its Valorplate suits aren’t as mechanically diverse as they initially seem on their gorgeous exteriors. With neither an interesting story nor a deep pool of varied content, all the choice Godfall offers doesn’t amount to much more than a bit of brief and shallow fun.

    The combat feels good, but that doesn't stop it from being an aggressively mediocre game that lifted most of its gameplay ideas from better titles. Play those instead.

    A visually stunning game, Godfall suffers from repetitive combat and a lackluster story that is forgettable after the first hour. In an industry with so many Dark Souls-style games, this is not one to spend time on.

    Godfall is an astonishing next-gen tech demo. Which is, honestly, the only positive trait of the game. Apart from that, it just delivers 10 hours of repetitive hack and slash gameplay and a tedious story worth a third grader. [Issue#308]

    Fantastic game, so much fun with a friend. Combat is great. Has some problems for sure. Definitely worth getting but if you are not a fan ofFantastic game, so much fun with a friend. Combat is great. Has some problems for sure. Definitely worth getting but if you are not a fan of looter genre wait for a sale. Reviews below 5 point are just a joke. Don't take it seriously. I'm sure this game will be %80-85 positive when it come to Steam, like Ryse: Son of Rome did. Expand

    This game feels well built to me, the combats fluid, the art/graphics inspiring and it looks and feels like a true next gen game! I'm a looterThis game feels well built to me, the combats fluid, the art/graphics inspiring and it looks and feels like a true next gen game! I'm a looter shooter and action RPG kind of guy, and if you are too this is for you! That being said it could use a jump and being able to block mid move/move like dark souls would help! I think the game will only get better as time goes on, we could also use a world map, just a few quality of life updates would make this a better game than it is! But i think it's a solid and fun/beautiful hacker slasher looter RPG! I can feel the old destiny, 2 crew, in this, they have basically hit the mark of my expectations and exceeded them at the same time! Definitely worth a try, if you're into this sort of game! It could do with matchmaking for the 3 player aspect of the game (you can only invite friends from your friends list to your game) But overall an enjoyable shiony experience so far! I just earned a third valor plate, i really like the art designs in this game! Expand

It is being treated harshly , I believe because it was hyped and because it is light on content . If this game had been a 45 dollar game it would treated better I believe. The combat is fantastic, the graphics are fantastic , the voice acting is good with buttery voices , the story is just a excuse for the game and that is fine in a looter action game . I seen some claim the story is bad . It isn't bad it is just basic and used only to create a reason to play which works. I cannot tell you what the story of path of exile was for example and nobody bashes that game . The loot system is good enough , could be better as it is no diablo 2 but could be much worse as it is no anthem either . This game is the epitome of basic fun. Definitely wait for the expansion or price drop if you aren't dying to play a game right now . When you consider remnant is only 37 dollars it is hard to defend the 60 dollar price here . But on a weekend sale? Hell yah and don't let any body tell you different. I have been having fun and that is why we game .. period . But I do feel like I over paid for this fun and that sums up godfall . . Expand

    graphics good, combat is good but evade and parry need work due to how long it takes to swing wpns. story line is trash cinematics are trash.graphics good, combat is good but evade and parry need work due to how long it takes to swing wpns. story line is trash cinematics are trash. would pay only 20 for this game strictly because its a slash and looter rinse repeat and know that for what it is. really let down by the lack of content could have at least had a couple more objectives during matches beside recycling the same 3, makes me think of lack of creativity on dev parts all around. just do yourself a favor and wait for big sale or just ignore this game. also i have put in 17 hours of play hoping it would get better and it was a wasted 17 hours Expand

    Very blank and shallow. It was clear on the very first time I saw the gameplay on YT.

    The game is as fun as staring at a ceiling.

    Can rate the game as "1" as it's just starts and I hadn't caught a single crash during the full-campaign playthrough (11 hours). Though thereCan rate the game as "1" as it's just starts and I hadn't caught a single crash during the full-campaign playthrough (11 hours). Though there are bugs and glitches, some are really annoying: when you kill the boss and follow-up quest just doesn't start, so you have to abandon a mission and repeat from the beginning. Everything else is a disaster.

    1. Storyline - there's none. Go kill bad guys, go grind boring missions to get "quest items" to open bad guys locations, repeat x10. I think there are smth like ~70 maximum sentences overall been written to tell you the whole story, though it's enough - there's no story. At least your average school essay "How I spent my summer on lockdown" would be much more interesting.
    2. Graphics - It's acceptable, could be better, but it is what it is.
    3. Looting/Crafting - totally useless. And it's a disaster for an ARPG game, especially if you like minmaxing your gear and stats. There's no need in crafting valorplates, you can finish the campaign with a starting one on "hard" difficulty. Life stones, charms, banners - don't even bother. Take any from the floor - equip and repeat the mapping.
    4. Skills - oh god why? The most basic skill tree ever. You can max out anything - you still don't need anything besides dodge lvl 1 and nothern techniques lvl 1. Resistances, spirit, vitality, might? Don't even bother. Re-roll is for free, you can't ruin anything.
    5. Combat system - lol. Thrash mobs are thrash, they are just there for slowing down your mapping experience. "Location bosses" and "Act bosses" are mostly mannequins, it takes ~30 seconds to learn the attack pattern while dodging around. Not a Souls experience. Not even close.

    TL;DR take Destiny and Souls gameplay, make it as boring as you can, cut off everything, don't bother with storyline at all, sell it with full price AAA project.

    Go better buy smth else or just watch TV.
