The Surge (PC/PS4/XbOne 2017)

Postby Mantis » Fri Jun 17, 2016 8:45 pm

From the Lords of the Fallen devs, who seem to be determined to make more games in the same vein as Dark Souls. This time they bring you, Dark Souls Mechsuit!

Gotta be honest, I haven't played LotF yet despite owning it, but this one does look pretty damn cool.

Encouraging preview.

Sounds like it has a solid base, so hopefully they can build on that.

Release date pegged for the 16th of May. I hope they have been able to apply the polish needed to this game. It's an interesting concept and by all accounts Lords of the Fallen was decent, just needed that extra bit of polish. So hopefully they have learnt from that.

Eurogamer review...

A tension that runs counter to the spirit games like The Surge work so hard to create, the sense that even in failure, you're failing forward - that perseverance will be rewarded, because the game is as patient as it is exacting. It's one of a number of small missteps that keep The Surge from achieving true greatness. It's a solidly built game and has some truly inspired systems but, for all its smart design decisions, borrowed or otherwise, it still rings hollow.

It's sure to find a decent following among the Souls hardcore as there's a lot here that's familiar for them to enjoy, but really these players have two fights on their hands - that against the enemies of The Surge, and that against the feeling The Surge isn't all it could have been. And that bloody, incessant song, of course.

I really liked Lords of the Fallen personally. For people who struggled with the Dark Souls series like me it was a decent enough alternative.
