Push Square Produces a Great Lords of the Fallen Review

It's obviously influenced by the Dark Souls games, but it's still its own adventure.

It’s obviously influenced by the Dark Souls games, but it’s still its own adventure.

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.

Tough and very dark, Lords of the Fallen will test your ability...but not to the breaking point.

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.

Congrats, Nathan!

I’m loving this game. It’s actually not as hard as I thought it’d be and it’s REALLY rewarding.

Sorry, I’ll stick to Dark Souls. 😉
