    As it is, it is still a blast to play, interrupted by quick frustrations that come from missed attacks that can completely stop an assault. If you are looking for a hectic hack-n-slash boss fighting game, Extinction is absolutely worth picking up. Those who can be quickly frustrated from bugs, however, may want to wait for a couple of patches.

    An exciting mix of genres and references that is not capable of maintaining that excitement and becomes boring too quickly.

    Extinction had the potential to be something special, but a few too many flaws and frustrations hold it back from true greatness. Despite that, we still think this adventure of epic proportions is very much worth a purchase if the grand scale even slightly grabs your interest.

    Extinction is good when it comes to controls, but after a few hours of doing the same thing over and over again, boredom kicks in. Seeing as the other three modes are pretty much the same, we can state we are highly disappointed by this game.

    As a whole, Extinction is a game built around plenty of promising ideas, but the execution fails to live up to its promises on almost every single point. It's hard to shake the feeling that Iron Galaxy didn't provide the game with the resources it needed to come close to reaching the heights it was aiming for. That's a shame, since all we're left with is a massive skeleton of a game that could have held some real meat.

    Extinction is a frustrating mess that has problems that in this day and age shouldn't exist. Camera problems, repetitive missions and frustrating climbing mechanics will have you rage quitting before you get halfway through.

    I don’t enjoy writing about bad games. I understand making games is incredibly difficult, and I’m not claiming I know how to do it. But this game should not have been released. Someone, somewhere along the line, should have made the call to cancel this game. There is nothing to be gained from playing Extinction. Don’t bother at all.

I waited until the special edition was down to $18 and picked it up. I have to say, it was a very pleasant surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed this game. The story is decent enough. The gameplay is tight and enjoyable, although it might be a bit repetitive. The challenges are varied and trying to accomplish all the primary and secondary objectives makes for enjoyable replayability. The voice acting is quite good, the animated cut scenes are great for a change of pace and the other conversation pieces are fun too. The best part of this game, by far, is the art style in the gameplay parts. It's flat out beautiful, and makes the whole game more enjoyable. While I certainly understand other peoples disappointment with this game (especially at a $60 price tag) and get that this is not a game for everyone, it very much is for me. Expand

Not only am I happy that I did not buy this game, but furthermore, I am happy that I only rented it for 2 days instead of 5.
    I expected more from Extinction, I thought that a game charging full price would have enough content to justify that price, but I was wrong. You play a "nobody" hero defending a bunch of "nobody" people from a whole mess of "nobody" monsters. While there is potential in some of the gameplay mechanics, the repetition of the game greatly outweighs any clever mechanic.
    There are 3 modes that play exactly the same, the only difference is that in one mode you can't respawn and in the other mode the levels are randomly generated...but the core gameplay is exactly the same. While it's not the worse game of all time, it is at the top of my personal list of bad games that I have played so far this year. Maybe with the season pass content (yes, they have a season pass too) they will introduce a new gamemode that does not involve "filling up your rune meter and saving civilians". We shall see. I would wait until this one goes on a %80 off sale to buy it.

Viendo todo el contenido se puede ver que no se han esforzado por sacar un buen producto o no les dieron mucho tiempo. Como esta es un insulto a la inteligencia de los jugadores que parece que no los toman en serio. Todavía tiene un pase de temporada. Ojala que luego envíen actualizaciones con mejor contenido como el caso de No man sky para que mejore relativamente al menos. Como esta no es recomendable.

    The problem with this game is the lack of variety when executing the mechanics, the history, the missions. Seeing all the content you can see that they have not tried hard to get a good product or did not give them much time. As this is an insult to the intelligence of the players who do not seem to take them seriously. He still has a season pass. Hopefully, they will send updates with better content such as the case of No Man Sky so that it improves relatively at least. As this is not a recommended game.

Genuinely one of the worst games I’ve ever had the misfortune of playing failing in nearly every feasible aspect of game design. It is worth less than nothing considering it bored me at best and is dedicated to manifesting a perpetual headache within any poor sucker who erroneously gave this dreadful AoT clone a chance. $60 is an utter insult. I often find that crappy steam games have an unintentional humor that makes them worth... something, but this game is, as of now, nothing but a pathetic disappointment. Seriously it should never have been made. Expand

Why to do such an amazing cgi trailerI was waiting for this game, seriously, all my expectation were destroyed when I saw first gameplay !! Why to do such an amazing cgi trailer if the game is a piece of garbage? And you ask 60$... If this was a mobile game for 5$ (and it is looking like an 150 MB mobile game) it will worth 5$ but, 60$ for a PS4 game presented on E3. I'm so disapointed... 0/10!!! You don't deserve even 1/10...
