Through a combination of often relaxed but sometimes tense gameplay, a dreamy atmosphere, and genuine characters that feel like they’re actually alive and all living together in this isolated society of longing, Undertale transcends its medium and becomes a genuinely moving experience I would recommend to anyone who is open to a sometimes sorrowful, sometimes hilarious, always bizarre and engaging emotional journey.
Regardless of its indie status, Undertale is one of the best and most inspired RPGs in years. By playing with traditional, turn-based mechanics, creator Toby Fox has crafted an experience with a legitimate surprise around every corner. If you have a PC and ten bucks, you owe it to yourself to play this amazing game.
Whis is an amazing game, wich I highly recommend. Undertale is a musical with a magnificent plot, brilliant music and gorgeous characters. It is a bit funny, a bit scary and really interesting. This is the game of my childhood. In the community of this game I found a lot of friends with whom I am still friends. Thank you Toby Fox and happy 8th birthday Undertale.
Without spoiling the many ways it will screw with your expectations, it isn't possible to truly capture how wonderful Undertale is. You wouldn't know it with a passing glance, but it's one of the most progressive and innovative RPGs to come in a long time, breaking down tradition for the sake of invention, with great success.
A mesmerizing emotional trip, Undertale is an indie prodigy full of whimsical humor, battle system innovations and deep moral decisions, even if it feels underdeveloped at some points. You will not be the same after you play it.
+ Writing is god-damn hilarious
+ Extremely memorable characters
+ Soundtrack is completely unique and epic beyond belief
+ Morality mechanics are captivating and encourage replayability
+ The game's got serious heart and spirit
- Gameplay is incredibly basic and requires a degree of buy-in to the story
- Visually doesn't look amazing, although I get that's not necessarily the intention
One of the most overrated games of its time. I didn't understand why it was loved then and I don't understand why it's loved now. Even if I have nothing else to do in life, it's not a game I'll spend time with. It might make a good animated movie, but it's not worth playing as a game.
