    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

    This game is amazing! Definitely worth the price point and one of the best games I’ve played this year!! And if you’re reading this the guyThis game is amazing! Definitely worth the price point and one of the best games I’ve played this year!! And if you’re reading this the guy that gave a ZERO because of camera angle, it’s the same camera angle as every other third person shooting game! If your character was in the center then the reticle would be way off center! My aiming is perfect for me and I LOVE this game! I hope there is plenty DLC and a sequel coming in the future! BUY THIS GAME!!!! Expand

    Remnant From The Ashes could be making a cheeky statement about the current dumpster fire state of the video game industry based on titleRemnant From The Ashes could be making a cheeky statement about the current dumpster fire state of the video game industry based on title alone, but probably not. What you do have is a budget title easily worthy of AAA price and status. I won't sit here telling you it's perfect as it has its share of issues, much of which I hope will be fixed with a day one patch. One often game breaking issue is the 1-5 frames per second you get after playing for a few hours and using a fast firing weapon like smg. This may just be a Xbox issue though. This frame rate issue has caused my game to crash and my co op buddy's Xbox to crash. Again, this will be fixed as Gunfire acknowledged the problem during the VIP weekend (patched). They also know about an issue where quest items like keys are lost when the host is dead when the keys drop thus halting your progression in the game. One common complaint revolves around how the majority of boss fights rely heavily on spawning ads in order to increase difficulty (and drop ammo) instead of bosses with mechanics designed to make their demise difficult. It's rarely a huge issues on Normal with some co op partners but it does seem cheap and annoying at times.

    Enough of the negativity, what does Remnant do right? Pretty much everything else. The graphics are pretty impressive, the world design is interesting, the enemies are varied in their appearance, the shooting is satisfying in both feel and sound, and the loot system is fair. Ever play a game like Anthem or Destiny with a couple friends, they keep getting good drops and you get squat for hours on end? You won't have that problem here. Whatever loot a co op partner picks up goes to the entire group. Your bad luck will not curse you here. Now this isn't your typical Division looter shooter. You won't be picking up incrementally better garbage left and right, spending half your time playing an inventory management game. You may find a few amulets, rings, or weapons while exploring your different realms but you are guaranteed something like a mod or weapon when you kill a boss for the first time. Kill him a second time in a different way and you might get something else. Speaking of which, once you beat the campaign you will want to re-roll your world and do everything over again as your realms will potentially be different layouts with different loot, dungeons, bosses etc. Perhaps you will want to ramp up the difficulty a notch or two. Definitely something to consider as you will have a substantial amount of gear score and upgraded traits on your subsequent play through. Depending on skill level and how you made your character, you probably won't feel OP ever and the game will try to punish you often. Happy hunting.

    Nice coop game. Combination of Dark Souls and Diablo. Each campaign is different with different surroundings and NPC.

    Remnant is a decent game that could have been a great game. Dark Souls inspired gameplay with gunplay and co-op. A fantastic concept. TheyRemnant is a decent game that could have been a great game. Dark Souls inspired gameplay with gunplay and co-op. A fantastic concept. They succeeded in some regards but stumbled in others.

    What they did right:
    -The gunplay feels good. Moving, shooting, dodging, etc. is satisfying, and that's one of the most important parts of a game.
    -Lots of stuff. There are a plethora of guns, armor, and items to collect, so if you want to play constantly there is enough "carrot" to keep you moving forward.
    -Audio/Visual. The graphics and sound are good.

    What was not so right:
    -The story is weak. I love good stories in games. This isn't one of those games. One or two custscenes plus a handful of journals randomly scattered around the game world. Yawn.
    -While co-op is always appreciated, it feels tacked on. The story is the exact same as in single player, right down to the other characters being inexplicably absent during the cutscenes. Also, there is almost zero interaction. You run around together, you might shoot at the same stuff, and if the other player gets downed, you go up to them and hit the X button to pick them up. That's it. Pretty boring.
    -Being able to upgrade weapons and armor is nice. Upgrades are one of my favorite gameplay elements. The upgrading in this game, however, is incredibly basic. You pay some money, your gun then does a point or two more damage. Do this until your gun is level 20. Why even bother with that as a system? How about letting us customize the gun's attachments, or modify it's fire rate, clip size, etc.? I'm not being revolutionary here; upgrades like this have been around forever, who dropped the ball here?
    -The boss fights SUCK. They **** SUCK. They are some of the most frustrating, unfun, boss fights I have ever dealt with in a game. The boss fights alone almost made me permanently quit the game multiple times, and brought my score down a point or two. Most of the bosses are just damage sponges with little strategy; shoot constantly, dodge a projectile, repeat. Occasionally there will be some minions too.

    Despite some unbelievably crippling flaws, the core element of the game is fun. Running around and shooting feels good. Shooting with a buddy is nice even if it's completely uninspired. And collecting new weapons is fun. All this is fun for a while, but whenever I play I can't help but wonder how great this game could have been if they had tried a bit harder.

    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 !
