Goliath - Launch Trailer

May 24, 2016The game is compact and fun for the most part but I would have like to have seen a bit more focus on story and better controls. I would certainly recommend this game if you like survival games like Don’t Starve or a game that looks beautiful with an interesting world to explore.
May 23, 2016At the very least, Goliath is a valiant effort in adapting a series of unique mech battles into a more fantasy-themed action RPG. If it weren’t for a few poor issues with the story and some kinks in some of the gameplay elements, this could have had a chance at bring one of the classics in the genre.
CD-ActionJul 21, 2016There’s plenty of better action RPGs out there and if you lean towards survival gameplay, pick up Don’t Starve. In its current form Goliath is simply not good enough to win the battle for you free time. [07/2016, p.62]
Jun 3, 2016Goliath has an appealing premise and a promising goal, but in the end it doesn’t live up to its own expectations.
May 23, 2016I could go on, of course, but the main idea is that Goliath, for having an authentically fun concept is not that much fun itself, venturing into being frustrating and overly cynical.
Jun 27, 2016'Goliath' comes up short on almost all fronts, unfortunately.
PC PowerPlayJul 6, 2016A great premise hampered by a smirking script, repetitive combat and arbitrary questing. [Issue#252, p.64]

While in need of some polish, a well concerted effort from a small, indie dev who are clearly trying to shoot for the moon. Thetldr;

The long review:
Where the game falls short: audio.
Mechs don't sound heavy. Not enough thunks, and booms. The rest of the audio is a bit more than atmospheric, and while not terrible, doesn't add much either.
Where the game succeeds: Core mechanic.
A fun crafting system that doesn't feel like work. A nice balance of action and exploration where mechs are a tool and not a means for unending material grind.
Combat system could use a little work in terms of creating "impact" which you hit an enemy... but this also isn't a fighting game. It plays a lot more like an isometric ARPG, which isn't a bad thing.
Finally, the dev team is EXTREMELY responsive on the forums. They are currently answering every single question and concern that pops up, which shows a lot of promise for future development. I have confidence that Whalebox will continue to shape this game into a well polished gem.
All in all, it's hard not to recommend this title, despite its flaws. It has so much ambition and heart, I can forgive its early fuzzies. If you like the concept of this game at all, I'd say it's worth showing your support.… Expand

In esso si trova l'ispirazione dei survival game come Don't Starve, ma l'introduzione dei Mech e di un sistema di crafting complesso ma non troppo incasinato, che sarà sicuramente amato anche dai meno esperti del genere, lo rendono un titolo godibilissimo.… Expand
