    Godfall is a massive surprise. It borrows combat from God of War and has enough loot to make Diablo blush. It may look garish but it's well designed and has that "one more go" factor.

    An enjoyable hack and slash looter that plays well despite a sparse, repeating structure.

    Godfall is not a title without its charms. The combat system is solid and satisfying, and technically, the game is great proof of PlayStation 5’s potential. But cramming levels full of particles effects and shining lights does not necessarily make for good aesthetic design, and Godfall also suffers from a weak story and repetitive endgame.

    While an undeniably beautiful game to look at, the underlying technical issues hamper the presentation. Godfall stands as a decent first attempt at a new IP with solid ideas and great combat, but doesn’t stick the whole landing.

    Despite its incredible art design and fluid combat, Godfall is simply too shallow to make a lasting impression.

    Loot-focused titles like Destiny and The Division grew stronger over time, as their developers added content and fresh gameplay mechanics. It’s difficult seeing the same happening to Godfall. There simply isn’t enough meat to provide a solid foundation for future updates and enhancements. It’s possible that the developer, Gearbox Software, could resurrect this title with a massive, Final Fantasy XIV-style restructuring, but the task would be—pardon the deific pun—Herculean. If you want to enjoy your new PlayStation 5, pick up Demon’s Souls or Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales instead.

    Godfall’s sluggish, overly complicated combat, hilariously paper-thin story, and numerous technical issues make it a lowlight of the PlayStation 5’s launch lineup.

This game is for people who thoroughly enjoy the looter genre, don't expect an amazing story or anything like that.

    I have heard some things that I do think should be touched upon such as not attack canceling. I really hope they update the game throughout time as I think the game has incredible potential.

    The story is your average "Guy turns to bad guy" story. The fighting is confusing, like really? No canceling attacks? The missions are bland.The story is your average "Guy turns to bad guy" story. The fighting is confusing, like really? No canceling attacks? The missions are bland. It's a scam. Expand

The combat, while seemingly diverse at the start, quickly becomes very repetitive and boring and the non-existent story that's here does nothing to help. Frankly, if not for the visuals, this would be one of the worst launch games I can think of in a long time, especially from a publisher like Gearbox. Skip this game as you can easily find tremendous graphical showcases from far better launch titles like Demon's Souls. Expand

    Terrible value for money. This was my first experience of a "next gen" title and I I was thoroughly disappointed. The game play mechanics areTerrible value for money. This was my first experience of a "next gen" title and I I was thoroughly disappointed. The game play mechanics are horrible, no input queuing or input cancelling. The content is all recycled and there is nowhere near enough. The world is hollow and uninteresting. The NPCs total 2 and might as well not even be there. You would be better off getting quests from a notice board and just read what thing you have to kill. The enemies are non interesting, basically don't aggro and are very easily defeated. The stagger mechanic is horrible and should be removed. Loot has almost zero impact and there is so much that it becomes meaningless. No matchmaking and if you are playing in Australia, forget multiplayer as the servers are in the US so enemies, allies and even your own character will pop all over the map.

    Save your cash and buy Ghost of Tsushima or Miles Morales.
