  • Summary: You are a living weapon. Unwillingly unchained by the Warden, the player's skills are put to the test, given only the instruction that they must stop the end of the world. With a story the player must piece together themselves, the central character sets off with no memory of their past.You are a living weapon. Unwillingly unchained by the Warden, the player's skills are put to the test, given only the instruction that they must stop the end of the world. With a story the player must piece together themselves, the central character sets off with no memory of their past.

    Other characters in the game may shed light on the situation, but the reality is not always clear, as characters are always operating on their own agendas. Use your diverse arsenal of ranged and melee weapons to clear your path as you explore dark sci-fi interconnected worlds in your quest for truth and salvation.

    An ambitious venture for a low-budget indie studio, but one that manages to stand out in the crowd despite its flaws.

    A SoulsBorne game with its own twist which turns out to be pretty entertaining, especially when it all comes together. And that is also our main concern; there are plenty of times when things don't come together at all which results in frustrating gameplay. Too bad, because the core of Immortal: Unchained is good.

    Shooter mechanics in a world that is a conceptual carbon copy of Dark Soul? In theory it could be interesting, but the execution is lackluster and leaves a lot to be desired.

    Immortal: Unchained tries to follow the footsteps of the Souls series, but ends up against a wall.

    Immortal Unchained could have been a great attempt to get its name between action-RPG’s as Dark Souls and The Surge. However, adding guns to the well-known formula didn't save the game from having way too many technical and balance problems during release.

    Ultimately, Immortal: Unchained serves to highlight one thing above all else. Every frustrating aspect of the Dark Souls experience is tolerated and even praised by its fans because the underlying combat system is so fantastically well-realised...Strip that away and all you’re left with is a mediocre exercise in frustration. Immortal: Unchained has thrown guns into the mix, but no consideration has been given to how their addition might affect the classic Souls formula. Dark Souls but with bad combat is a tough sell.

    Immortal’s pursuit of the hardcore label speaks to a certain presumptiveness in its design – that its impenetrable nature will be offset by a community looking for new challenges to overcome and new mysteries to unravel. Dark Souls got away with that approach because every aspect of it was so meticulously fine-tuned. Immortal’s extreme difficulty only highlights how fundamentally its ideas don’t run together. If there’s anything worse than a bad game, it’s a hostile bad game.

It is a "AA" title, so in the end just 30 devs were working on it and yes you see it in the graphics, but it's still good looking and VERY athmospheric. Gameplay is "Demon's Souls with guns" set in a Scifi setting - I love it, looks awesome and the fights are very difficult what I like. Most bad reviews talk about the technical flaws - look behind it and enjy one oft the best game since years. Expand

Its aBought it on PS4 today and the game is interesting and really challenging. I have played it 8 hours now totally and really enjoying it. Its a game that needs to be played for a few hours to get it right. First hours was a bit weird but after the cool boss fights I can recommend it to my friends. Expand

Una lástima. Podría haber salido mucho mejor. Por lo demás es un grandísimo Souls-like y original con su variante TPS. Divertido, desafiante, bien diseñado y muy recomendado para todos los amantes del género. Es un juego de 7 o 7,5. De Notable sin lugar a dudas. Expand

    Gute Soulslikes gibt es viele – doch nur wenige gehen über die bloße Kopie hinaus. Immortal – Unchained jedoch entfernt sich ein gutes StückGute Soulslikes gibt es viele – doch nur wenige gehen über die bloße Kopie hinaus. Immortal – Unchained jedoch entfernt sich ein gutes Stück vom großen Vorbild Dark Souls, indem es mal eben den Shooter mimt. In puncto Spielgefühl funktioniert dieser Wechsel bemerkenswert gut, denn auch in Toadman Interactives knallhartem Action-RPG entsteht ein Großteil der Faszination durchs Immer-wieder-Sterben und gleichzeitige Lernen. Außerdem ist der an Terminator-erinnernde Dark-Sci-Fi-Look irgendwie gelungener als noch beim deutlich dickeren The Surge. Leider nerven technische Probleme wie Glitches, Ruckler, Textur Pop-ups und korrupte Savegames genauso wie echte Unregelmäßigkeiten im Gameplay: Viele Bosse frustrieren durch einen unfairen Stun, außerdem unterbricht der Feind jederzeit eure Nachlade-Animation. Insgesamt unterhält Immortal – Unchained Genrefans dennoch – vor allem wenn die anfangs lahmen Levels durch smarte Shortcuts immer komplexer werden. Expand

    Crappy generic music, boring bosses, regular enemies masked ass bosses, lag and crashes and buggy as hell. This game gives the illusion ofCrappy generic music, boring bosses, regular enemies masked ass bosses, lag and crashes and buggy as hell. This game gives the illusion of choice but the truth is, you can't win without a snipe rifle since the levels are so unfair and unbalanced that you will have to snipe enemies that have snipe rifles in a narrow hallway or you can't proceed. Imagine Megaman but make every stage 10 times longer so it takes you 1 to 3 hours to get to the boss and when you finally reach it it's a childs play. This game is horrendous, I love soulsborne games but this is a horrible way to try and cash in on it . I would go so far as to call plagiarism since so much is stolen directly from dark souls and dark souls 2. It should be illegal to sell this unstable piece of garbage. I have played early access games that are more stable. It's pathetic. Let's hope toadman will never make a game again. I don't care it's a 20 people team that developed the game. They developed a turd and try to charge you money for it. Get a job I say, a real job because game development isn't your cup of tea and it never will be. Expand
