    While it has its fair share of flaws, a compelling world that is rich with secrets and lore, alongside beautiful graphics and engaging flight controls, help The Falconeer stand out and stake its claim to your attention.

    The Falconeer lacks an actual Falconeer protagonist to hang its adventure from and ends up impersonal and fragmented. Odd dis-incentivizing design choices seek to undermine what is an otherwise wonderful lore-filled world and some of the most fun and frenetic aerial combat this generation.

    The Falconeer offers up an incredibly crafted world with a deep mythology that is begging to be explored further and gliding over the open sea on the back of a falcon is pure fantasy, but while the game’s dogfights can occasionally be thrilling, they can soon become a bit repetitive. Samey missions and a lack of options in combat ultimately mean that The Falconeer doesn’t quite nail the landing.

    Despite his pleasant artistic direction and his ambition to tell a complex story with multiple ramifications, The Falconeer lacks a little soul during its ten hours of play. The developed lore struggles to include the player because of a lack attachment to the heroes while the uninspiring missions, even generic, plague the desire to progress. Fortunately, his overall successful dogfights as well as his few flashes make this aerial shoot an experience that deserves attention. The work done by its sole developer is obviously remarkable: his love for an endangered genre shines on every feather of the Fantastic Falcon.

    The Falconeer introduces us to the unique world of the Ursee, but while the setting is there to draw you in, the experience fails to provide the variety needed to keep you intrigued and falls into a cycle of repetitive missions.

    It’s a lovely looking game, but The Falconeer just doesn’t entertain like it should. From its repetitive missions to its story that you’ll quickly stop caring about, it fails to capture your attention in the long term, while occasional frustration in combat puts a bit of a downer on the gameplay. Just flying around in its world can be quite a calming experience though. Silver linings and all that.

    There is a great game buried somewhere in The Falconeer, but it's trapped behind an open-world structure that does it no favors.

    Good game, reminds me of Panzer Dragoon orta. 120fps is so smooth, Series X is off to a flying start.

    PS Ignore the stupidly low scores

    PS Ignore the stupidly low scores they are by Sony Fanboys just click on their user names and you will see they have given PlayStation games all 10s even Godfall lol.

    The art style is gorgeous and the Graphics design is simple yet nice to look at.
    The music is addicting.
    Combat is simply incredible and fun to experience, or tho it feels like some sections I would like to go back and play over and over. Some not so much. But overall it's a super satisfying experience
    Well worth the $45au with plenty of replay potential.

    Can't believe this was made by one person? That is nothing short of astonishing

Before we start I need to say don't expect weird things people because this game is meant to be chill and calm and quit pleasurable and atmospheric. Don't go in and expect horde fights or great war horns etc.The Falconeer is an aerial combat game against a backdrop of acrylic-painted skies which allows you to take majestic screenshots and immerse yourself within..There's so little amount of games on the market that makes me as chill as this one, and I was so relaxed while I was playing it your surroundings the environment everything is just perfect .However, it's not an arcade game and it's definitely not action all of the time.
    That's because a huge part of the game is flying around an open map, running various missions for various settlements dotted around a mostly water covered area. The Falconeer’s emptiness makes it atmospheric and beautiful, leaving space for the shifting weather and looming landmarks to set the tone. But it’s also a weakness that keeps it from being good and not absolutely a stunning experience for Xbox One owners and even the lucky Xbox Series X gamers. In the end it just feels like too much time is spent journeying through empty space, and the sparse additional distractions beyond the missions just aren't quite enough to fill that void,

    Yet I just can't deny that it's one of the best games I played this year I'm glad they released it before the year ended it should be on Steam Awards .
