    Severed Steel assaults many of your senses and rewards your bullet dodging, slow motion ballet dancing with satisfying kills while caressing your eyes and ears with the striking visuals and soundtrack it presents to you.

    Severed Steel is a fantastic ride while it last, there is a map editor for the brave but replay value is only going to be found for those that have the need to top a leaderboard or want to record some dope slo-mo montages. Anyone looking for a supremely easy to get into action game that blends the bullet-time from Max Payne with a bombastic soundtrack pumping techno music and all the slides and dives from 80-90’s action movies…look absolutely no further than Severed Steel. For a first game Greylock has nailed it and I can’t wait to see this gem on consoles.

    Severed Steel will be a massive video game for a narrow group of gamers. If you love perfecting a plan and then spending as much time as needed to both car3efully and quickly execute it, you will love this experience. Running on a wall, diving through a window, all the time dodging enemy attacks, only to then slide and kill two enemies before finding a safe space is a fun time. But the game can also frustrate and annoy. The levels could be a little bigger and more varied. I like the restrictions on weapon use, but some players will hate it. But the development team at Greylock knows that the first-person shooter needs to evolve to be interesting and they have some good ideas about whether the genre should go. Even if you don’t love Severed Steel keep an eye out for what they work on next.

    The longevity is not the cup of tea of this game, but for at least a couple of hours Severed Steel manages to offer something new and exciting in today's FPS landscape.

    Severed Steel left me conflicted. On the one hand, it’s a pity that a couple of truly brilliant ideas were implemented in a generally unpolished game. On the other hand, despite all its flaws it’s a fun, engaging shooter that kept me in front of the screen for hours. [12/2021, p.39]

    Due to the player character’s smooth movement, Severed Steel is an exhilarating FPS experience that will make you fall in love with your own gameplay. It gets a little repetitive, though, and the Japanese localization could be better, but players who enjoy parkour FPS games or bullet-time action should be satisfied.

    Severed Steel was fun to play, but I couldn’t recommend it at its current price in its present state. Greylock Studio needs to throw some intense boss battles in there, a few tough enemies, and, in my opinion, rework the bullet time metre. I really hope the developers don’t move onto their next project straight away, and instead turn this game into a series that will make people look forward to the sequel. If you love these types of games, then there is no doubt in my mind that you will also enjoy Severed Steel.

The game is fast and furious and still allows you pull off beautiful bullet time stunt moments where everything just falls into place and your enemies drop to the floor around you exactly as planned.

    The campaign is well designed and the levels feel varied. Story is minimal but artfully executed. And the destruction in the game is amazing.

    Plenty of replay once campaign is complete with new game+, firefight, mutators, bonus campaigns and missions and community made workshop missions.

    Soundtrack is sublime.

    Its like Double Action Boogaloo and SuperHot had a baby. The art style can get tiresome.

    Pure gameplay

    Mindblowing gameplay, it reminds me mix of Quake 3 with Super hot. It feels really good, even with lack of story and boss fights.

    Visualc (8/10) Graphics a bit simple, but music and atmoshpere are great. Ray tracing is working, but why we need it in universe like Trone wuth pure cubs and platforms. Also you don't have any second to check pure graphics because gameplay is super fast and I think it's even better, so players will not get epileptic shock.

    Gameplay (10/10) It works magnificent. Arenas - check, Cool and working(!!) mix of doom, super hot, quake and other shooters - check, Modifiers and tools for level designing - check. Just play and feel this.

    Story (3/10) Just pictures between levels. But it's indie game and first game from authors. Also campaign is very short. I don't think you need story here because this gam is all about gameplay and community support. They even add anatgonist as a boss, but it was bad.

    All in all, it's very fun game, you just need to try it. (Noone cares about story in arena shooter)
