    Beast Quest tries to be a great game, but it is too simple and lacks to provide the entertainment that could make the fans of the genre stay with it.

    An awful porting of a mediocre game.

    It wouldn’t have reinvented the wheel, but it could have at least tried to give us something more to work with than the bare bones of a game from the 2000s.

    Beast Quest feels unfinished. Its graphical presentation is put to shame by many PS3 titles, and we’re absolutely baffled how the experience doesn’t even manage to run at a consistent framerate on the PS4 Pro. But even if these two aspects were up to snuff, the gameplay and plot are still below average. Beast Quest has very little to offer to even the most die-hard fans of the book series, and everyone else is advised to steer well clear.

    The whole game feels like a build that has sat unreleased for 15 years and has finally been pushed out in 2018. If it were a low priced game aimed at the younger fans of the book series I might have been more lenient, but to release such a cynically shoddy game and then have the sheer cheek to slap a £30 price on it is inexcusable, and I wouldn’t even recommend picking this up at a sale price. It doesn’t even work on a ‘so bad it’s good’ level. Beast Quest is the gaming equivalent of Old Yeller, but without the emotional attachment.

    Beast Quest is a 5 and a half hour long real time rpg like adventure game where you play as Tom... the choses one... out on a quest to free the beasts and save the land…
    There is a mobile game with the same name in the same series, but these are not the same games.. Kind of... I mean they are but they aren’t... they took bits of that game and fleshed it out a bit making it a proper console game… though its mobile skeleton can still feel felt at times especially during its combat.
    This game feels a bit clunky at first, it takes a lot of getting used to thanks to its input lag with its jumping…
    you have to readjust your brain during the rare 3d platforming bits so that you don’t lose your health.. or worse lose all of your health and be sent back to your last checkpoint
    platforming aside, I actually really enjoyed my time with this game…
    you’re running through different regions of a game, have golden lights on the ground guiding your way.. Though rare moments won’t work properly... and along your way there will be keys for you to find matching chests for with coin inside for you to buy items to increase your carrying capacity for potions you pick up off of enemies during battle...
    There are also campfires dark souls style where I you die you’ll be sent back there... these also act as checkpoints and auto save points and will refill your health…
    but you’ll be running through these surprisingly varied areas, doing the occasional slide the rock and climb up puzzle on to freeing one of the beasts...
    but along your way are tons of enemies to battle…
    This is sortve a real time Pokémon like battle system..
    You’re pulled into battle with no escape and for the first chunk things are pretty easy, but then they get challenging…
    This battle system feels very mobile game like...
    you can’t freely move during battle to dodge for example... instead you’ll be tapping the right and left bumpers or flicking the stick to dodge attacks, getting in light and heavy attacks before your opponent attacks rinse and repeat..
    And while fighting you’ll gain courage which will allow you to pull of an elemental attack or a status boost or defect…
    and there’s a slower champion meter that lets you call in a character or beast you’ve helped to do massive damage, usually best saved for boss fights,,
    And at the end of these fights you’ll earn ap that you can dumb into new moves, and increasing your stats.. You can also earn these through side quests you get off of characters in the different villages you’ll find around...
    This game pulled me in... It kept me immersed in its very simple action turn based like rpg system... but by the games end after ive dumped enough into my character I just felt unstoppable and the game stopped being fun for me...
    it just didn’t make me think enough or want to grind for more..
    There are 4 elements in this game and characters do have immunities to certain elements... but only one...
    so I did fine just switching back and forth between fire and ice… plowing my way through the final 2 sections of the game..
    I’m not saying the game was too easy or that enemies needed to be spongier...
    I just would’ve liked some sortve system that didn’t allow me to just spam attack my way to the end which is what I ultimately ended up doing. But this is a very simple and enjoyable game...
    you won’t be blown away, you won’t be challenged… but it may surprise you with how fun it ends up being...
    I give Beast Quest
    a 7/10
