Mar 9, 2022Aztech Forgotten Gods is an impressive achievement for the small studio, doing a great deal right in all areas making for a very enjoyable experience. Undoubtedly, there’s room for improvement, but for an action-adventure game that just about reaches double-digits in playtime, there’s very little of any significance that either affects the experience of that I can complain about – which for me is unusual. I for one hope this isn’t the last we see of our witty heroine and the Aztec gods.
Aug 17, 2022Aztech: Forgotten Gods is a classic example of a good idea with failed execution. The premise feels fresh, as does the use of gods from a civilization that isn't often covered. The combat system and various traversal mechanics have potential, but technical issues, bad presentation, and an uninteresting open world lead to a game that squanders its potential. Hopefully the team can rebound to present some of these ideas again with more polish. In its current state, it's difficult to recommend Aztech.
PLAYMar 7, 2022So, what keeps us on board to the end? The story. It has a fun (but cheesy) sense of humour, is unafraid to touch upon deeper subjects, and Achtli undergoes substantial personal growth. There’s plenty to like in this six-hour campaign, and we commend Aztech for exploring Mesoamerican culture, something rarely seen in gaming. It’s packing great ideas, but rough execution hampers it.

Mar 16, 2022The good ideas in this game are buried under way too many issues that affect pretty much every aspect of the game.
Mar 15, 2022Aztech Forgotten Gods is an action game with some interesting ideas, but it fails to entertain the players and has too many issues.
