Legends of Aethereus - Review Roundup

by Couchpotato, 2013-10-09 00:25:30

I have two recent reviews for Legends of Aethereus, and let's just say their not positive.

RPGFan - 35/100

Aethereus isn't about the story, the graphics, or the music; it's about gameplay. I won't fault Aethereus for not being something other than what it tries to be, but with questing this anonymous and combat this dysfunctional, I can't recommend it to anyone. The ambitious number of gameplay modes and few nuanced mechanics foretell a potentially exciting future for Three Gates, but even after patches and adjustments, I doubt Legends of Aethereus will be worth playing. There will always be many better options for every kind of gamer. Hopefully this is what lays behind just the first of three portals. May what comes out of the next one be better and brighter.

CheatMasters - 6.5/10

Legends of Aethereus is a game that is better when played with others, so you may have to either get friends to play with you or wait until this game does get more players online for the 4-player cooperative multiplayer. Until then, you will have to make due with the singleplayer campaign, which may not be to everyone’s liking with not enough interesting places to explore and all the grinding necessary to progress through the game. This is a $30 title that is best left for those who really like their RPGs a bit old school, but with a bit of a curve ball as well.
