    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 is one of the biggest surprises of this year on Nintendo Switch: a third person shooter that is much more of the sum of its parts, recommended not only to mech and anime fans but to anyone looking for a good mission-based shoot'em up.

    A modern mech title that can easily be a gateway drug to hours of fast-paced action, there’s nothing else quite like Daemon X Machina on Switch. While its story falls a bit short, it’s still enjoyable and intriguing enough of a ride to keep up with even when confusing. It shines strongest in its amount of replayability and sheer mountain of additional content that can be unlocked. Daemon X Machina is a title that’s hard to put down and is easy to get sucked in and just want to keep going further and see what other crazy things it has waiting around the corner. It’s obvious that a ton of time and dedication was put into Daemon X Machina, and it’s one that fans of the genre or those with the tiniest bit of interest should check out.

    There’s plenty of content to wade through with the lengthy story, assortment of side missions, and multiplayer options with friends or strangers (strictly co-op not versus).

    There’s much to applaud about Daemon X Machina. The third-person mech action game delivers an experience unlike any other on Nintendo Switch, thanks to the striking mech designs and red-drenched world merging with combat that can readily thrill in the game’s many large-scale encounters. However, shortcomings such as the convoluted plot and repetition let it down – holding it back from reaching the brilliance that Marvelous nearly achieved.

    Despite what Nintendo has tried to sold us, Daemon x Machina is a low budget game that have potential, but its lack of ambition is the reason for not being successful.

    All that’s cool about flying a giant world-saving robot has been executed in the most leaden, user-unfriendly, nonsensical manner possible.

    A proper homage to the classic PS2 Armored Core games, for better and worse. Graphics style is love it or hate it, but I feel like they did aA proper homage to the classic PS2 Armored Core games, for better and worse. Graphics style is love it or hate it, but I feel like they did a good job of using the Switch's capabilities. Story is pure Armored Core weird/cheesy, so don't come into it expecting a masterpiece, expect a bunch of tropes providing you reasons to go blow stuff up. Customization is not as deep as later Armored Core games, but should be deep enough to keep the player interested in tweaking both their mecha and their pilot (the latter being a rarity in mecha games) as the game progresses. The game is repetitive, sure, but the same can be said of previous Armored Core games, and also pretty much every mecha game ever made, so it's less a problem with the game and more an issue with the genre (if you consider it a an issue at all). I wouldn't buy a Switch just for this game, but if you have the system and you like mecha, definitely grab this, it's very difficult to put down. Expand
