    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.

    Godfall is a fun looter shooter but it has too many flaws and lacks consistency and coherence to go beyond sufficiency.

    Godfall is a very good-looking game for your brand new PS5, very shiny, but the battle system and gameplay as a whole becomes very boring pretty quickly, as it has many many issues too.

    Godfall doesn’t do anything egregious or worse than any of the other disappointing looters of this generation, but it does almost everything equally as badly in a weird perfect balance. This is what makes it so frustrating. There is definite potential for a gem inside this game, but it’s so busy with being a downright average-at-best looter that it loses all semblance of actual personality, a key component to maintaining a looter game. Impressively non-existent story, incredibly derivative art, classes which mean absolutely nothing, a deceptively small loot pool, technical issues up the wazoo, terrible endgame design and a horrific netcode all add up to a visually pleasing but soulless affair that can’t even begin to escape being categorised as anything more than a flashy tech demo.

    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.

    I don't know why people are hating the game so much. I saw one review that said the combat was too hard and had to laugh about that. I saw aI don't know why people are hating the game so much. I saw one review that said the combat was too hard and had to laugh about that. I saw a mmo company review it poorly because it's not a mmo (duh). I have about 10 hours in and I have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. There are things that need improvement but those can easily be patched. I would love to see an update on the Valoplates making them a bit different. This game reminds me of God of War mixed with Diablo. The hunts are a cool idea and I like that at the end of missions you can just start freeroam missions. The soulshatter and breach systems are cool twists to the God of War combat. Expand

    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

    Es muy malo este juego. No es divertido jugarlo, los gráficos son buenos pero no justifican la compra, historia mala y jugabilidad aún peor.

    Obvious cash grab, some people even try to counter the critics with 10 Points, but not because the game is good rather out of despite. xD
