    I have spent nigh-on 20 hours with the game, and my goodness, I cant wait to get back into it. There are a few small niggles, but the mix of difficulty with easy replayability and easy access makes this game worth trying out for anyone that enjoys some fun and a challenge.

    It's a big surprise inside a tiny package that gets the best idea of games like Resident Evil and Dark Souls and mix it up with expertise with a coat of AA game paint.

    If you’re after a new RPG adventure, there are few titles besides a Dark Souls adventure that will keep you engaged quite like Remnant: From the Ashes.

    Remnant: From the Ashes sometimes struggles to present a cohesive, balanced vision for the kind of game it’s trying to be, but nestled within that chaotic swirl of ideas is a strong core that’s supported by equally strong gameplay. As long as you don’t mind enduring highly difficult bosses and a lack of ambient polish, Remnant is the perfect sort of game for players who appreciate both the Souls-like and tactical third-person shooting genres.

    Remnant: From the Ashes is a great surprise for fans of the Souls-Like genre; it simplifies the experience to focus on the player's skills and the intensity of the fight.

    Remnant: From the Ashes is a very unique game that aims to bring the Souls formula a little further with a cooperative shooter approach that doesn't work in single player mode. On the other hand, in cooperative, the game makes sense. A spectacular soundtrack and innovative design make this game -along with its devilish difficulty- a title to be taken into account. Too bad it has quite a few bugs and its gameplay isn't very smooth.

    There's a lot to like about Remnant: From the Ashes. Its character and world design is mostly excellent, and it's really atmospheric when played alone. Its core mechanics work well, too. But additional polish and tweaks are needed to really make it great.

    Do yourself a favor and don’t pass on this game! In a world where 90% of releases are targeting people’s wallets, and only care aboutDo yourself a favor and don’t pass on this game! In a world where 90% of releases are targeting people’s wallets, and only care about monetization while making a serviceable game in the process with basically no heart and soul, this game is such a breath of fresh air. It has a crazy amount of content for only 40$ with no micro transactions in sight. It has a dark souls feel to it what with the check point system and respawning enemies, but calling it a souls like feels like under selling what it is. It’s truly unique with the ability to Reroll your world layout and have new bosses, side stories, weapons, and maps. Not to mention how much FUN the combat is. This is how replay-ability should be done and it’s just a really addicting and great time. We need more support for studios like this. Expand

    E estou totalmente satisfeito com o jogo. O conheci no GamePass, e acabei comprando o jogo com as duas DLCs, e não me arrepende de forma alguma. É um jogo desafiador em muitos momentos, e a satisfação de matar um boss, de conseguir um belo item é muito satisfatória. Por mais dificil que seja em alguns momentos, vc se sente desafiado a continuar jogando e superar aquele obstáculo, te motiva a melhorar seu personagem e chegar mais forte no desafio que achava "impossível". Recomendo a todos esse jogo.

    Remnant: From the Ashes is a Third-Person action shooter, survival game inspired by Dark Souls. In a post-apocalyptic future, overrun withRemnant: From the Ashes is a Third-Person action shooter, survival game inspired by Dark Souls. In a post-apocalyptic future, overrun with deadly monstrosities, mankind has been nearly wiped out. You are one of the last remaining humans, set out to carve a foothold through the countless droves of enemies, and clear the way to rebuild. With randomly generated maps, and a random boss progression, every play-through is a new adventure. The games overall aesthetic is amazing, with rich detailed environments, and a soundtrack that holds you in the feeling. Remnant holds true to it's design concept of Dark Souls focused heavily on ranged combat. It's tough, enjoyably so, but tough, with randomly designated spawns, and random extra spawning designated as you progress. The game is wholly unpredictable, granting an new challenge around every corner or randomly cranking the fight up to 11 with a new wave of monsters in an already heated battle! The combat system is fantastically designed meticulous combat, with a near seamless ability to switch weapons or dodge, as your fighting off waves of tiny nuisances or towering abominations. The only place where the game seem to be lacking is in the story's drive and depth, but it accomplishes what it needs to. If you enjoy the feel of heavy precise combat, in an unforgiving setting, and nearly endless replay value from its randomized worlds and progression, then Remnant: From the Ashes is the game for you!

    While this game does bear some similarities to Souls games (bonfires, estus flasks, looping maps, etc.), it has a lot of issues. The mainWhile this game does bear some similarities to Souls games (bonfires, estus flasks, looping maps, etc.), it has a lot of issues. The main issue being the quantity over quality approach the developers took in its encounter design.

    You enter a new area in the open world, it will trigger a horde of visually uninspired trash that will rush screaming at you from every angle. Virtually every boss encounter is a single large enemy running around the map spamming high damage attacks at the player while a group of endlessly (and often instantly) respawning adds swarms them. The end result is that it does increase difficulty, it's just not engaging, or fun, and completely and utterly circumvents everything that makes the boss encounters in Dark Souls enjoyable.

    Level design has a samey, copy/paste feel to it, and illustrates most if not all of the issues with procedural generation. The in-game map is terribly designed, not even allowing the player to view multiple levels/floors. Performance, at least on the Xbox One X, is not great, with the game suffering occasional periods of significant stutter (sub-20fps).

    I give it a 6 because I am assuming the developers had limited time and resources with which to bring this game to market, and I respect the fact that they did so with no micro-transactions or intrusive monetization tactics. The core game mechanics have potential, and I feel that given sufficient time and polish, this game could wind up being fairly good. It's just not there right now.

    Encore l'un de ces jeux triple K avec option TK d'office (Koop Kevin Kikoolol option Très Kon) pensé avant tout pour les modes coopératifsEncore l'un de ces jeux triple K avec option TK d'office (Koop Kevin Kikoolol option Très Kon) pensé avant tout pour les modes coopératifs afin que les esprits un peu simples puissent se rassembler et s'emmerder ensemble (parce que vivre ensemble, jouer ensemble, chier ensemble etc, etc). Même si on peut aussi s'emmerder en solo dans ce truc, histoire (avantage non négligeable) de se rendre compte vite fait de l'étendue des dégâts...

    Et les dégâts sont nombreux et irréparables... on ne peut même plus les contrôler (les dégâts) tellement il y en a... car ce jeu est un navet, un gros navet ! tout y est en effet très médiocre, les combats, les animations, l'espèce d'histoire (lol), les dialogues imbéciles, l'univers éculé et suranné qui mélange fantasy bas de gamme et sf de supermarché (en solde)...

    La maniabilité est elle aussi médiocre, pas de parade, pas de contre ni d'esquive (seulement des roulades...) des armes sans relief, des sensations inexistantes... et pas de sauvegarde ? Graphiquement, c'est également très quelconque et tout cela, la somme de tout cela n'est que pur ennui à des doses très inquiétantes : le meilleur moment du jeu reste sans conteste la désinstallation !
