The game counts with a solid story which unfolds in a fantasy world populated by dozens of unorthodox characters. Adventuring, exploring ruins, accidentally unleashing the apocalypse, saving the world youve done it all, and so has Argus. And, frankly, hes a bit fed up with the whole thing. He used to be a wizard, which was fine and all, but hes in his 30s now, and he wants to settle down, get some peace and quiet. But thats not easy to get with all those spike-haired buffoons dragging their giant swords around and ruining the pavement. Specially when youre trying to keep a dangerous artifact hidden from meddling heroes with a chosen one complex. Expand

    As a full-fledged action rpg à la Diablo this is merely average. Where Zenith shines is the humor and its delivery. Similar to The Bard’s Tale (2005) nothing in the genre is untouchable and will be used to get a punchline out of it.

    Zenith is a game I wanted to enjoy more, and there are plenty of times I did have fun, but the combat was the most un-fun and unfair aspect of the game, and that’s what players will be doing the majority of the time.

    Despite the glaring issues with Zenith, what kept me playing was the parody of other fantasy games, the really thinly veiled references to Final Fantasy and the dialogue dripping with sarcasm.

    Bad game engine and almost perfect dialogues + sense of humor dominate this in-every-aspect conflicted game. But it's worth trying. [Issue#273]

    FANTABULOUS!!!

    This game is an absolute mix of everything, crazy humor, RPG elements, Final Fantasy, lots of cameos (Geralt, Dovakhin, Luffy, Lord Veldermort, Trachett, you name it!), drama, a little romance, a little betrayal, lots of sarcasm and plenty of originality.

    I swear I have not played a better game for ages, I mean some of the scenes I couldn't stop laughing, and there was not a game I remember that I laughed so much from (that drama entrance of Mordecai and his two sidekicks, and when the door shut back, I just lost it).

    Thought it's true that there are some imperfections, such as lack of large healing potions, ability tree is also rather laughable, not to mention potions long cd and rather difficult fights at some places but NONE of that matters, the plot, the dialogues and characters is what makes this game so special and so precious.

    It's similar to Bard's tale, but as much as I finished Bard's tale in a hurry and somewhat "I just want this to end" manner, Zenith made me afraid ... Afraid that at some point, this great adventure will come to an end, so I tried to delay the inevitable by checking out all the game's got to offer.

    Maybe the authors hit my kind of humor, but if you like good old sarcasm in the best performance available, you won't find a better game, trust me.

    As we all should agree that the Witcher is the best RPG of the year, so we all should agree that Zenith is the best comedy game of century! (Last time I laughed so hard was playing Monkey Island ...).

    LONG LIVE THE INFINIGON!

It's a kind of adventure game with interesting puzzles and with a splendid dialogue. It's fun and refreshing. It will suck you in almost immediately. The sarcasm and irony in it is top class. I recommend it to everyone to at least give it a chance. Expand

    After getting the game through my gf's recomendation, I decided to give it a go as the trailers I had seen so far had been hilarious. 4 hoursAfter getting the game through my gf's recomendation, I decided to give it a go as the trailers I had seen so far had been hilarious. 4 hours in the game, and I can confirm that this is indeed a breath of fresh air and an amazing game!

    The sense of humour is on point, with lots of satire, sarcasm and pointed remarks at the topics of the RPG genre with no game left untouched, in a Bard's Tale-esque style. The soundtrack and storyline are so far excellent as well, with many moments that will make you let out a good chuckle or outright laughter. The only issues preventing this game from getting a perfect score would be the combat, which is a bit unbalanced and will have you die or panic-rolling around for a while while your health potions take at least one or two minutes to recharge, and the static camera that can sometimes be slightly annoying. Still, this is a great game that any fans of the RPG genre with a sense of humour will certainly enjoy, filled to the brim with hilarious references and sharp remarks at many RPG stereotypes and classics.

    Back to play it again!
