    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: From the ashes is a game that is equally enjoyable playing both solo and co-op.
    Didn't impress in the beginning but gets way better and more interesting the further you play and the story is ok for this type of game (hint, take time to read the various books through the game). There are also many hidden gems such as how you get skills (traits) and how you can deal with bosses in multiple ways which in turn give different rewards. I like how you can change your playstyle during the game for different types of situations and are not stuck with the playstyle of the class you started with.
    I give it a 10 because it's a surprisingly good game that doesn't deserve the "low" overall Metacritic score.

Well polished and well made, the combat is satisfying and the guns are very snappy and fun to use. The bosses are fun to fight and have very interesting designs. The game does suffer quite a bit from being repetitive and somewhat grind full. However if this is not a problem for you this is an incredible game to get for 40$. Expand

    This game has a lot of ups and downs, with the peaking experience residing in co-op.
    The graphics are based on Unreal Engine and although they're decent, it doesn't bring out the full potential of UE. Visuals are generic and level design is horrible, with recycled maps giving no impulse to explore things whatsoever.
    As I played coop I didn't have the time to get into the story, but the premise seems to be all about defeating the evil monster hordes which threaten humanity, concept used in plenty of other titles.
    Armor aesthetics are awesome and their functionality lets you play with certain builds whenever you decide. Skill points, or so called "Trait" points are not intriguing, as they are just bunch of stats which you can level up, most of them being too weak to even take in consideration.
    Mechanics are the defining things of this game, somehow obscuring the other bad things of this product. It's a really nice blend of shooter and Souls series, with bosses which force you to use melee alongside the guns. Some fights are really exciting and difficult, especially if you play on Nightmare difficulty (recommended only after you finished the game at least once and decided what kind of playstyle you will have).
    In conclusion since it's not a triple A game, the game is pretty fun to play especially with your friends, unless you don't have PTSD from Dragon Age 2 and ignore the awful level design.

    Le tenía muchas ganas después de lo que se dijo en su momento, pero lo fui dejando hasta que epic lo regalaba en su tienda.

    Decir que este juego es un souls con disparos es un sacrilegio. Pronto me desquicié, no entendí el mundo y estaba totalmente perdido con lo que debía hacer. La verdad que todo cuanto te contaba el juego llegó por importarme un pito. Aunque he de reconocer que en ciertos momentos tuve buenas sensaciones pegando tiros a los bichos que me iban saliendo al paso. Una de las cosas que no termino de entender de este juego es que los jefes o eran realmente fáciles o huesos duros de roer. El jefe final terminó por desquiciarme, no hay por donde meterle mano y la paciencia de uno tiene un límite.
