The combat isn’t stellar, the levels themselves leave a lot to be desired, and the story is honestly forgettable. It’s a shame that what makes the RWBY animated series so great could not be translated into its first proper video game. Still, the campaign offers around 5-6 hours of playtime and it’s a competent, and even at times fun, hack and slash game that I recommend you play with a group of friends.
RWBY: Grimm Eclipse is an enjoyable hack ‘n’ slash game recommended for all the genre’s fans, although it’s a short game swept along by its indie roots as it hasn’t the necessary resources to offer the fans all that we would want.
I love this game a ton, it has a great story and good visuals for what is basically an indie game and the music is amazing as you can expect from anything rwby but it does get a little repetitive and it gets super hard to level up, but totally worth the $20
While the gameplay can be mindless at times, it's more than made up for in it's sheer fun factor! Especially with the JNPR dlc and the massive amount of costumes directly from the series!
Sure Hack-and-Slashers are nothing new and yes getting a physical copy is a challenge, but RWBY's unique style along with the great graphics really make it pop and unlike Arrowfell, getting a physical copy is pretty affordable if you can find the right place!
A must play for fans & worth at least one playthrough from everyone else!
A modest hack & slash that fulfills its mission of being entertaining but with a very simple story and scarce variety of combos. Anyway, it's a good game with addictive gameplay and very fun moments. The horde mode is perfect for the game and got a special and pretty good visual design. Is very cooperative-oriented, something that many users will like.
For all of its problems, there’s no getting around the fact that it does have the capacity to entertain for a fair number of hours when played in co-op, meaning ardent fans of the series may still want to consider picking it up.
With competent, if simple, hack and slash action, a short but varied story mode and a decent amount of outside content to encourage replaying, it's a game that fans of the show or the genre may find enjoyable. However, if you're just looking for a quality game to spend some time with, RWBY shouldn't be your first or second choice thanks to a total lack of character development that leaves half the game's heart simply gone and enemy design that would be worthy of a low score.
As a casual fan of RWBY, I had high hopes for a game that would translate everything great about the show onto console. RWBY: Grimm Eclipse proves to be better with a full team, enabling all of the unique weaponry to shine, but is incredibly pointless should you want a solo experience.
Have you ever wanted to waste your time and money on an insanely boring game? Look no further. This game has an incredibly basic combat system that will get boring after an hour of play time. You can only make this game fun if you play with friends and even then you'll all die of boredom before you finish the game's bad story.
