AAdvanced in technology, civilized and with a population of billions, Magalan was a planet looking to the future. Then the meteor hit. Those who survived are now trapped in a battle to survive, a struggle to decide the fate of a planet. At the center of this fight is the element "Elex". A precious, limited resource that arrived with the meteor, Elex can power machines, open the door to magic, or re-sculpt life into new, different forms. But which of these choices should be the future of Magalan? Can technology, or magic save this world? Or will this new power destroy all those left alive amongst the ruins? Elex is an action, role-playing open world game for PC and Consoles, developed by Piranha Bytes, creators of the award winning Gothic series and is set in a brand new, post-apocalyptic, Science-Fantasy universe where magic meets mechs.

    Elex is the best game Piranha Bytes has ever made. They’ve taken all the lessons learned on plotting, worldbuilding and character development from their work on Risen and Gothic and applied it something far more ambitious. The result is a truly great action-RPG, full of interesting characters, memorable quests, and amazing environments. While Elex‘s story comes to a satisfying conclusion and all the questions Jax starts with are definitively answered, it ends with the suggestion that there’s a much bigger story on the way, and I can’t wait for it to arrive.

    So, you need to be patient and committed to get much out of ELEX, but give it a chance, and there’s a soul in there that should grow on anyone who enjoys their RPGs. The distinctive setting, wonderful world and quest design, and scope of the narrative are all genuinely admirable, and play to Piranha Byte’s strengths as, along with Cyanide, the most prominent and creative B-grade RPG developer out there.

    Elex is a raw diamond full of flaws but with too much value to consider it as an ugly and wrong game. Give it time, be patient and it will capture you.

    Elex is far from perfect. It can be a frustrating experience and the horrible combat system could be a deal breaker, but it’s undeniably an ambitious title with a promising future.

    Elex could well be this generation's cult favorite RPG, much like Two Worlds was mine, and the developer of Gothic and Risen has easily made its most beautiful and interesting setting yet. The world of Magalan is intriguing with its blend of technology and magic, but it's unfortunate that the game tucked inside of it is only fun to play half of the time.

    There’s a lot of fun to be had in ELEX at higher levels, but the game opens far too slowly and spreads itself out too thin to make any sort of impact.

    ELEX is an absolute disaster, with in particular one inexcusable flaw: it does not work. At all.

    Ein Spiel, wie es sein muss.

    Nicht umsonst hat ELEX den Gold Award von der Gamestar bekommen. Ein absolut würdiger Nachfolger der Gothic Reihe bei dem PB wirklich alles richtig macht.

    Coole Dialoge, die im Deutschen wahrscheinlich deutlich besser sind als in der englischen Übersetzung und ein harscher, aber nicht unsympatischer Hauptcharakter.

    Das Kampfsystem, die Animationen und die Grafik sind sind superkrass up to date und aufpoliert bis man sich daran blendet, nein, es ist ein solides Spiel, so wie man es von PB erwartet.

    Wer noch unentschieden ist, kann gerne Dienstags und Donnerstag bei uns auf dem Kanal vorbeischauen, dann gibt's immer einen mehrstündigen Stream, der sicherlich eine Menge vom wirklichen Herz des Spiels offenbart.

    Calm the **** down.
    The reason we see a continuous rehash of games that seem to be copies of one another is because we give no leeway for smaller companies trying to break into the AAA scene.
    The game is not a masterpiece, but it's 100% enjoyable.
