Engage in brutal, technical combat and master eldritch magics as you walk the Forgotten Path. Elden explores non-traditional storytelling through indirect methods – like reading an illustrated book in a language you don’t understand. The combat is based on reaction rather than action. Strategically, you will need to manage your stamina and position in order to master the art of parry or to find the perfect time to strike. Visually inspired by classic 16 and 8 bit games, Elden: Path of the Forgotten is a stunning, encapsulating, dark world waiting to be explored. Expand

    Elden: Path of The Forgotten is very unlike any other game I’ve played. Its unique method of conceptual storytelling urges you to continue in the hope that you may understand. It’s beautifully executed, despite the battles being frustratingly difficult in places, and entices you to explore and fight through the landscape. If you are a seasoned gamer looking for a new narrative to explore, I would thoroughly recommend this game.

    If you’re looking for a 2D, more simplistic take on the Soulsborne series, this is an interesting choice. It’s quite short, but also intense.

    Elden: Path of the Forgotten is a hard game, but it is far from frustrating and will please fans of the souls-like genre. The graphics, the soundtrack and the sound effects set the adventure very well, but I missed a narrative better experience, which would complement this game a lot. The bugs hindered me a little, but not to the point of making the whole experience bad. In general, Elden: Path of the Forgotten has some problems, but it's a great game.

    Elden: Path of the Forgotten will definitely evoke memories and impressions of some very known action and adventure games, namely those with a particularly difficult combat. When it comes to the fights, Elden demands a certain tactical mindset but it also runs the risk of becoming too repetitive. With a charming audiovisual presentation but a plot that suffers from minimal narration efforts, this is a game that might please fans of action and adventure games but which will have some work to do if it is to convince other players.
