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.
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.
Before I played the game I use to think that the game was overhyped and just a simple game, but when I actually grabbed and played the game I was shocked, the story of this game is just so creative and fenomenal and when you start to understand whats going on, you just fall in love with game, 10/10, by far one of the best games I've ever played.
+ 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.
