Push Square Produces a Great Lords of the Fallen Review
If you’ve always enjoyed the dark, fantasy worlds found in games like Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls, but you’re not a masochist, you’ve been looking for a game like Lords of the Fallen. It’s challenging, but not to the extent of hair-pulling and controller-chucking, and it has a great atmosphere and style.
If you need a bit more information, check out Push Square’s excellent analysis. Critic Nathan Michalik tackles the task of comparing a new game to existing titles, without making it sound like Lords of the Fallen is a rip-off. It’s not, as Michalik explains, and by the end of the review, the reader fully understands the differences.
It’s also a well-balanced analysis that hits all the highlights; we know everything we need to know when we’re finished, and that’s what all good reviews (in all mediums) should do.
Why We Like It:
— Because the game incites so many comparisons to a certain series, the critic has to accept this, while balancing these comparisons with an objective view. Well done, here.
— The structure and tone is just about right; there are no tangents, no erratic bouncing around. It just flows the way it should.
— In the end, the critic tells the reader exactly what to expect, and this gives gamers a better idea of whether or not they’ll enjoy the experience.
