    Thorn’s quest to save Leaf is exceptionally well-written, and the world of Dewr is one of the more enjoyable video game worlds I’ve explored in some time. Despite some minor quibbles with the combat and some of the world-building, No Place for Bravery is still an excellent game that players looking for a challenge are sure to enjoy.

    No Place for Bravery is endearing if not exhausting. This broken world harbors countless deadly foes that players will have to rip and tear through. At times it may feel needlessly dour but through the muck and the mire is a beautifully visualized title that pulls no punches at its hardest junctures. But inviting difficulty sliders ensure that no hurdle is too sharp and that every challenge can be conquered, driving Thorn and the player ever-closer to salvation.

    No Place for Bravery surprised me in many ways. When I first started, I was ready for a gory festival of combat with a good story to go along with it. What I got was a beautiful, dark narrative that pushed me to reach the end credits far more than the promise of combat would have. The things I loved most are things I can’t talk about in this review for fear of spoiling the experience - No Place for Bravery feels fantastic to play, and Glitch Factory has created a story that will stick with me for years.

    No Place For Bravery has some real strong points and I really enjoyed the story in particular, but they're counterbalanced by weaker elements within the combat that meant I wasn't really excited by the whole package. It's a decent effort that will kill a few hours, but not much more than that.

    What surprised me the most about No Place for Bravery is its desire to rise above its crass displays of savagery, despite its fixation on its own violence.
