Seems like Godfall was met with harsh review.

6 reviews so far and averaged 62 score.

Godfall is a massive surprise. It borrows combat from God of War and has enough loot to make Diablo blush. It may look garish but it's well designed and has that "one more go" factor.

Unfortunately, what might have looked like a fine jewel in the glint from your flashlight is really just a shiny piece of glass that leaves a lot to be desired. If you want a fairly mindless RPG experience that offers some different weapons and gear to mess around with, then Godfall will give you at least a few hours of fun.

An enjoyable hack and slash looter that plays well despite a sparse, repeating structure.

Godfall is the quintessential launch game. This gilded PS5 exclusive shows off the power of the new hardware with its intricate, reflective halls of gold and obsidian, bioluminescent plant life, and enemies who explode in a shower of particles. “Next-gen is here,” it shouts, in a scream that’s barely perceptible over the whistle of high-speed steel. Underneath all of that sheen and noise, though, there’s nothing new at all.

Godfall offers a lot of promise with its impressive visuals and impactful combat, but those highlights are lost in a sparse dungeon crawler that sells its strengths short. It’s far different than the Destiny 2 clone fans were anticipating, but that live service style may have been a better fit for its commitment to loot grinding.

Godfall’s sluggish, overly complicated combat, hilariously paper-thin story, and numerous technical issues make it a lowlight of the PlayStation 5’s launch lineup.
Seems like my first opinion of it was more accurate than the ones I got from further trailers and gameplay.

Not many reviews but expected. Since the first trailer was revealed, it looked average at best.

Hmm, that leaves only Miles Morales as an incentive to get a ps5 early. Not good enough, no excitement for this new gen yet at all. However next year's line up looks amazing.



whoops. At least I’m glad people will stop listing that game as bragging rights. To me it looked low 70s Metacritic from the start

Well, them you'll have to stop listing gens that were already released but are getting patch or late port to Xbox as well =p . How many new titles on Series?

That didn't stop people from going on about Rise Son of Rome last gen ;)

And Knack even got a sequel!



Although the score could fluctuate (given the small review pool), this one always struck me as a 9th-gen Ryse: aping specific expectations from the previous gen, fumbling in implementation, and having a nice coat of paint in hopes of glossing over such problems. It's selling for $70, right? A tough gamble compared to the long-cherished regard for Demon's Souls coming at launch too.

And I want Knack 3 to finish the trilogy in PS4, then if they want they may make collection remastered for PS5.

Can't disagree from you. And yes 70 for this game is asking a lot imho.

Looks like an average title, but can be really fun.Ryse son of Rome has mediocre reviews when launch for Xbox one but was still fun to play.Hack and slash looter can always be improved with new content in the future.



I guess I have poor taste in games. I thought it looked great.
