    Daemon X Machina sets the bar for robot action games. The addictive mecha fighting is almost flawless, but it's complemented by so many other incredible parts to the game. There's a rich, unique world filled with incredible and memorable characters, endless and addictive customisation, gorgeous visuals and a jaw-dropping soundtrack. Daemon X Machina rarely stumbles, and even when it did, I still couldn't help but be impressed by this amazing new experience.

    Daemon X Machina makes the player feel like a futuristic mech pilot, but they can never escape a dull story that keeps interrupting the action.

    A passion project for its developers, this game has been originally dismissed by the players, but has managed to revive from its ashes due to constructive feedback from the community. Despite its drawbacks, regarding technical restrictions and the underperforming A.I, Daemon X Machina is a game suited to genre lovers and those who enjoy co-op action, and has all the requirements to develop even more.

    With an intriguing story, pretty solid gameplay, vigorous customization options and a promising online component, Daemon X Machina is a welcome addition to the arsenal of third-person shooters on Nintendo Switch. All in all, it’s a fresh take for Nintendo fans and – for the most part – an enjoyable experience.

    It's a good Mecha video game, hindered a bit by an overly convoluted story and a very slow pacing to its gameplay and world building.

    When it’s great, Daemon X Machina is a fast and frenetic mech action game with deep customisation options and a killer artistic direction that sets it apart from the rest. But when it’s not, it’s repetitive mission structure, nonsensical story and facile combat stop it from being the best it could be.

    Daemon X Machina has its ups and downs, with some amazing action and an impressive amount of weapons. Unfortunately the worlds are completely empty and it is not strong in the graphical department.

    As a mecha fan I can say this game is everything I can ask for. Armored team is back and we should support them.

However, if you like deep customization, min-maxing armor and weapons, as well as collecting and applying mods and collectibles, the endless loop of what basically is a third view looter shooter will keep you hooked. its a cool game. I have spent already over 30 hours, mostly in co-op multiplayer and halfway though the campaign and have had a lot of fun. Love the art style and the gameplay. It could have some QoL improvements and more end game content, but those will most likely come in future game patches and DLCs. Expand

    Game so far seems fairly generic in gameplay and story. Better than the initial demo but not great.
