    Remnant: From the Ashes is more than just a Dark Souls clone or a simple third-person shooter. It’s the lovechild of the many games, mixed with aspects of Gears of War, Fallout, The Division, and its own brand of weird. The number of games I’ve kept playing after my time with it for a review can probably be counted on two hands, and I’m happy that Remnant is going to be joining their ranks. Despite a shallow store, some repetitive environments, and a few occasionally frustrating glitches, this is a game well worth your time.

    An interesting mashup of genres, ultimately creating an experience that can stand alongside even the best Soulslikes.

    Remnant: From the Ashes is, in all honesty, a breath of fresh air. A solid and alluring co-op action RPG with a good lot of innovations. Don’t call it a “souls-like with guns”, it’s much more than that.

    From the Ashes is a brilliant game that takes what is good about Soulsborne and combines it with a satisfying co-op shooter.

    My time with Remnant was a total roller-coaster. There were moments of pure, unfiltered rage, peaks of elation, ah-ha moments, and quiet zen grinds. For the most part though, it's just a steady climb. The developers are not shy about how hard this game is. If that's your cup of tea, perfect! Every victory will be hard-fought, bloody, and beautiful once behind you. I just couldn't shake the small, nagging sense that my few successes weren't earned. I just got lucky, squeaking through the cracks. More than this minor unease, my playtime was marked by anger, by exasperated breaths and whitened knuckles. I ended up having more fun than I expected to, but that shiny nugget of suffering remains. Heed my wary words and proceed at your peril. If a tough time is your aim, then Remnant: From the Ashes is absolutely your game.

    Presentation and polish aren't its strong suit, but Remnant: From the Ashes features gripping third-person gunplay and simple but satisfying progression that enable enticing entertainment regardless of whether you're playing cooperatively or solo. The visceral variety and delightful design of the environments and enemies elevate Remnant above other Dark Souls doppelgangers.

    Even when the game isn’t actively shooting itself in the foot, it never entirely succeeds.

Remnant has great gameplay and mechanics, discovering new secrets in the world is fun and intriguing, even with the lackluster opening presentation. From post apocalypse cities, to deserts, swamps, jungles, the enviroments are very good. Lip sync in the game is not perfect but the voice acting is very good. With the randomized campaign system as soon as you finish yout first run, u will start another one, because its going to be a diferente experience, diferente bosses, diferent secrets. From the amount of secrets, 3 leve dificulties, if a player wants to see everything i think he needs to play the game at least 3 times, each time being diferent then the previous one. For its price tag this can easily become a 300hrs of content game. ive had a amazing experience both Solo and Coop so far, coop is harder but is very worth it because the rewards a insenely better. If u like souls-like game and want a change of pace, get this game. Expand

You can tell by reading their reviews that they are Bad and this game is too difficult for them. But that's not a reason to give it a red score. If you're bad just deal with it.
    Remnant from the Ashes is the most fun I've had in a very long time. A big surprise. The game is fantastic and it surpasses all the expectations. It rewards the player for taking the time to learn its core. The story and lore are magnificent if you take the time to explore + the art style and atmosphere are very immersive + the soundtrack is on par and the gameplay... oh, THE gameplay is just pure perfection. Deserves a 10 out of 10. So far GOTY 2019 by a long shot. Try it for yourself and spread the word. This needs to become a franchise. It has full potential.

You have different bosses and some random elements in maps each playthrough. You can join your friends via steam whenever you want and the enemies scale but just like darksouls you only progress the host's world. I have played 13h and still not cleard it but people says the game is short, maybe im just slow. The progress system is well made but maybe a bit lack of weapons and armor you can find. But with the price i can actually say im satisfied with the content i buyed for. Expand

    As a fan of Souls genre, shooters and Darksiders 3- i expected more from this game. Its alright, but nowhere near the hype it gets.
    Main flaws it has are:
    - game is annoying and hard not in a good 'soulsy' way. You lack ammo, enemies can spawn indifinetly (in most bossfights- boring and lame design), quickly your weapons lose their power so you have to grind and upgrade them all the time, bosses cheat and can hit you through pillars, stairs, walls etc. Its really frustrating even for a Souls veteran. I had problems even in early levels, probably balance is off or it was clearly designed for coop (i played solo)
    - randomness which means world is built from blocks = lack of hand-made crafty levels known from souls games, no shortcuts etc. Because of that levels look samey and uninspired and dont have many orientation points that would help navigating through them. Map sucks.
    - other plenty bugs and overall low budget clunkiness.
    It can be fun (especially in coop), but its not that good.

The fights areThe game is a diablo + dark souls light in a fallout-like environment with lots of shooting, looting and running around. The fights are somewhat challenging, there are new weapons and gear and upgrades you can get while progressing.
    However all this get boring really fast, the zones are incredibly dull which made me stop playing after an hour then I gave it several more tries but with the same result. The world is really empty and boring, the story is not very interesting either, after a few upgrades the common monsters are just there for cannon fodders.
    I guess if you have friends to play with the game could be a bit better but I'm 100% sure you can sink 15+ hours into other games with a lot more enjoyment. Dull is the perfect English word for this game.
    You don't lose a thing if you skip this one.
