It’s time for the first reviews of Lords of the Fallen! The game will launch on Xbox Series
We were hoping to bring you our own review of Lords of the Fallen Here at Pure Xbox, unfortunately we don’t have access to the Xbox version yet, and we don’t feel it’s fair to judge based on the PC version alone.
However, here’s what some other outlets have said about Lords of the Fallen so far:
“Nearly a decade since the release of the original Lords of the Fallen, CI Games and HexWorks deliver a reboot that exceeds all expectations. With responsive, precise, and challenging combat, innovative twists, astral dark rendering, and more, it’s one of the best games out there. The most Soulslikes games I’ve ever played.”
“Lords of the Fallen is a gorgeous, soul-like thriller with a fascinating dual-reality premise, even when its performance shortcomings and weak bosses crash the party.”
“Lords of the Fallen is an exciting kind of Souls game. While many others aim to improve on the formula, Lords of the Fallen aims to innovate. It certainly has its own set of problems, such as a lack of sound, and repetitive enemy types.” , and combat that could be tightened up a bit. However, when the game sinks its claws into you with its exciting dual-world mechanics, you won’t be able to get enough of it.
“A beautiful world, distinct mechanics across two worlds, excellent voice acting, and combat that feels good when not weighed down by enemies and artificial challenge create a solid foundation. But Lords of the Fallen fails to impress beyond that, and instead grows more and more frustrating.” “It is an adventurer’s journey to Mournsted.”
“Lacking FromSoftware elegance, Lords of the Fallen is let down by clichés and performance issues.”
The reviews are a little all over the place so far, it seems Metacritic The average can fall anywhere between the 65-85 mark after all is said and done. There are a lot of high scores, but there are a lot of not-so-high scores too!
If you’re interested in trying out Lords of the Fallen for yourself, it’s available for pre-order now on the Xbox Store ahead of its release on Thursday. Keep in mind that this is a current-gen exclusive game – so it won’t be coming to Xbox One in any way.
