    As a fan of these kinds of games, I can say that Remnant: From the Ashes is a type of soulslike that I would have probably passed over in favor of something more traditional, but after giving it a fair shot I’m glad to say that it’s the successful spin on the genre that I didn’t know I wanted.

    Remnant: From the Ashes lies somewhere in between Dark Souls and your typical randomized rogue-like. It features an intense co-op PvE combat formula, mixed with a beautifully crafted world and a smart understanding of the RPG features. As a result, it will give you a nearly infinite amount of satisfactory playthroughs.

    Remnant: From the Ashes is a cruel and difficult third person shooter, but also extremely satisfying.

    Remnant: From the Ashes is an entertaining and challenging game, that also give us some options to try its gameplay and challenge its enemies. However, you should not forget that it's mainly a coop game, and playing alone can be tough or even frustrating for the most part of the journey.

    Remnant is a cool co-cop TPS experience that is difficult for newcommers but really immersive, while offering great bossfights and an adaptative skill-system.

    Remnant: From the Ashes is a brilliant game that will undoubtedly satisfy the masochistic urges of all those Souls-Like (really can't apologise enough) fanatics out there that need their next fix of brutal punishment in the form of a video game. The game is let down by a few minor faults and won't provide the same amount of gameplay that the majority of Souls games deliver to players, but the positives of this game far outweigh its negatives and the ability to replay it and take it on with friends negate the admittedly short standard campaign time.

    Remnant: From the Ashes is an ambitious title and a fairly unique one at that, it just does not always stick the landing.

    Okay, that's my first review, but when I saw Slant magazine score, i just can't leave it, review is utter crap btw, don't listen. Seriously,Okay, that's my first review, but when I saw Slant magazine score, i just can't leave it, review is utter crap btw, don't listen. Seriously, this game is awesome. Combat is great, ranged weapons feels so satisfying to use, melee combat feels good too. Remnant has it's own unique style. Art and vision of Gunfire Games are incredible, if you played Darksiders, you know what i mean. It's surprisingly challenging and fast paced at the same time. Multiplayer is fun as hell. First game in long time that I enjoyed with my friends. Solo is great too. Don't miss it, it's hidden gem, especially if Souls genre warms your heart. Expand

    Remnant is a mix of ideas and concepts that should no work together... But it work! Although the graphics are not top notch, it´s reallyRemnant is a mix of ideas and concepts that should no work together... But it work! Although the graphics are not top notch, it´s really pretty in its simplicity. The concept of a 3rd person shotter a la Gears of War mixed with a simplier Dark Souls meele combat and ramdomly generated maps, cool monster design and a simplistic but functional RPG scheme makes the overall product a lot fun.

    It´s true that, sometimes, the games push hard at the challenge, throwing more enemies than a Gauntlet game could, and if you´re alone, it may be a hard timeto survive. There´s no penalty for dying, just return to the last check point, but they are far (usually at the start of each dungeon) and you will need to fight again every enemy, but the experiences and resources gathered can be used to upgrade your weapons and itens so the next round should be a little easier.

    Two friends can join the party and every item collected goes to everyone, so play together is a must, as it´s make the game less punshing as you can revive or be revived by your friends, surround bigger enemies our deal with an horde of teeths with 3 simultaneous shots instead of one.

    Remnant is fair fun, a little bit hard alone, but rejoicefull nevertheless. Is a pleasant surprise to the middle year catalog. It may take around 18 hours to complete the first playtrought, but every new game changes all maps, so you´ll never feel playing the same scenario.

    yeah if you're a solo player like me and have no friends to play co-op with, pretty sure you should avoid this game or at least wait for thisyeah if you're a solo player like me and have no friends to play co-op with, pretty sure you should avoid this game or at least wait for this game to be half price. Solid gun mechanics and feel, but that's pretty much it. A lot of shooting, not much else. The worst part is the enemies spawn especially during boss battles, and it's continuous. Basically any objective you do, prepared to be swarmed by non-challenging but annoying enemies that makes this game artificially difficult. Bullet sponge bosses are enough, why with the annoying side enemies? Looting is just monotonous, like others said don't go into this game as a looter shooter. Oh and if you play co-op with randoms, you literally have to progress in your own world if you want to progress further into the game, or it's going to keep dropping you into the same mission as in your world. For solo gamer's best to avoid. Expand

    Broken game. Crashes every time you try to select a class at the start of the game. Very disappointing. Will update if it's fixed.
