    As I said up front, it's not as bad as The Park or Murasaki Mist — or my all-time worst game ever, Basement Crawl — but your mileage may vary. It's certainly in that conversation, which should tell you all you could possibly need to know.

    Hey what is LICHDOM BATTLEMAGE? nobody knows. i found it at the bottom of the glass case at Walmart. I never seen one add in a magazine or onHey what is LICHDOM BATTLEMAGE? nobody knows. i found it at the bottom of the glass case at Walmart. I never seen one add in a magazine or on the internet for this game.If Bethesda had made this game everybody would be talking about it. BEWARE IT HAS FRAMERATE PROBLEMS. But there is automatic download patch that fixes all the framerate problems and the load times.BATTLE MAGE is like Oblivion or Skyrim without the weapons. I wanted so badly to hack enemies who came too close, but a quick counterattack with the shield and a blast of fire eased all of the need for a weapon. great graphics brutal enemies fun to play. the most important to me is fun and i enjoyed every minute. WAIT.... the customization and crafting of your magic sygils is out of this world just about any combo of magic you can think of you can create that makes this game dynamite. GREAT GREAT GREAT
    Im glad i took a chance on this game. fun

Definitely a little rough around the edges, but I enjoyed it on Steam and and also enjoying another playthrough on PS4.

    Bad: the menu, inconsistent frame rate, sometimes sparse environments

    Good: visuals, spells, controls, settings, general gameplay

I've been wanting to pull the trigger on this for ages, but the volumes of negative reviews and complaints held me off. The idea of a FPS (essentially) with spells intrigued me. I was almost willing to spend 10 bucks, but the current sale price was just too good to pass by. And believe me, I've been burned plenty of times before when I ignored bad reviews and purchased a turd. But I gotta be honest -- I really like Lichdom. It's fun, interesting, fast-paced and literally a blast to combo spells. The good news is that the game has been patched so it's (presumably) much better than it had been on the PS4. But don't get me wrong, there are plenty of issues from LOOOOOONG loading times (per level) and some frame rate jerkiness to a few other technical problems. But they're not the worst and can be overlooked because the gameplay is really fun. I'm loving it. If you're like me and find the premise interesting, then rent it or pick it up for under $10. You won't be disappointed. (If I'd paid full price when it was released, yes, I'd have been super angry.) Expand

First off, it was version 1.01 that is suppose to help long loading and fps issue (it does not). The loading is terrible, and half of the time the game crash while loading. The fps is so terrible that it make it almost unplayable. The game look fun, but in the current state its not playable. Already two crash in less than one hours, so most my time was waiting on the loading screen. I would not recommend this game even if it was free. Expand

I like supporting lesser known studios and niche titles, especially new ideas or new takes on existing ideas. I turned this on and got through the opening cutscene before I had to switch it off. The voice work does not match the character models. The gesturing of some of them is laughably bad. I fought through it even as the game loaded up for 8 minutes. Upon loading I was treated to another cutscene where i could control the camera. Looking around, everything is hazy, like I'm drinking too heavily. It begins to give me a headache, i push through, excited by some of the aspects the game promises. By the time i receive my first sigil, game staple "fire", the framerate had gotten so sluggish that my character wasnt moving but the background was. The fireball i shot was delayed and then it went to another loading screen. Just walking in the opening minutes of the game proved painful. If it gets patched this might have potential, but the tree in Wander moved faster than this and the framerate never got above 20. Sad to say but, save your money on this one. Expand

    DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!

    DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!
    As of 4/19/16, Lichdom: Battlemage is UNPLAYABLE. This has to be the WORST port since the Batman: Arkham Knight PC port. The frame rate is in single digits... let me repeat this... The frame freakin rate of this potentially great game has never hit 20fps. Most of the time you'll be playing a PowerPoint.

    But then again... this console port was done by Maximum (more like Minimum) Games, the people that brought you Farming Simulator 16.

    Update: They have addressed that they will be working to patch up the game. No promises though. I'm sorry for those who bought this mess of a game.
