He used to be a wizard, which was fine and all, but he’s in his 30s now, and he wants to settle down and get some peace and quiet. Expand

    Zenith is a game that everyone should give a go. It's charming, funny and just well made in general. Don't let the classic RPG setting fool you, Zenith is one for the books.

    Zenith gets the Diablo concept and spices it up with a story full of humor. It feels a little bit outdated, but it's very entertaining nonetheless.

    A fun game due its jokes, but not the most polished one. Zenith can be considered ugly, his AI dumb and the graphics aren't great... And even with that, it still entertains.

    I personally enjoyed Zenith, the story and writing kept me going though all the various issues it presented. The amount of bugs, glitches, and technical performance issues just can’t be overlooked, especially for a casual gamer.

    This videogame is practically broken on PlayStation 4 and its story relies only on a very dull humor. Its graphics are too old to be featured in a game of this generation.

    You are never at risk of encountering anything unexpected when playing Zenith, but cutscenes are unpredictable and quite intelligently written (and even well directed at times), so they are genuinely entertaining. But the game is an action RPG by the numbers, and it gives the distinct impression that it is a vehicle for delivering the comedy. This would be fine, but that vehicle would need to be enjoyable and on this one, the wheels have fallen off.

    Zenith isn’t just badly made – it’s appalling. A boorish, cynical failure of a comedy game broken in ways I’ve never before seen. The fact it somehow – everso rarely – manages to show a glimmer of wit under all the misery only worsens the deal, highlighting how this could have perhaps been something decent before it was run through whatever thresher led to it becoming the mangled carcass it is...There is no cure for the disease this game carries. The kindest thing to do is take it out back and put a bullet between its glazed, gormless eyes.

    I am so grateful that I got this for 4 bucks... back in the day, when the price was 19 I almost bought it.

    The game starts with a strong note, I give you that. The graphics are not bad (not great either) and there is some nice humor and fun combat. For a couple of hours I really thought this would be entertaining. And then... you leave the city and discover the world map and the 1 hour long loading screen to enter a battle. And the 1 hour long loading screen to get back to the map... and it's not like you get anything (there is no leveling system, just some gear upgrades). I am sorry, but this won't do... it's unbearable.

    If you manage to go through this and finish the game, let me know. With so many options out there, there is no way in hell I am going to invest my time on this game. Zenith could have been a nice, small, indie game. But, as of now, it's a broken, unpolished mess.
