Path of Exile - Review @ PC Gamer

by Couchpotato, 2014-01-14 05:24:53

PC Gamer reviews the F2P ARPG Path Of Exile, and awards the game with a 84/100.

If you play action-RPGs as a cathartic power trip, to slam into monstrous hordes and watch their bloody bodies ragdoll across the scenery, then Path of Exile will seem dry. It’s not a game about instant gratification, it’s about slowly forging an inventive character over three acts and three difficulty tiers. Once it has its claws in, Path of Exile is as compulsive as any other in the genre. After a few hours the combat becomes automatic. The objectives are moot, the quests, characters and creatures incidental. Every stab and slash is in service of the real journey across that vast levelling board. Every 500 to 1,000 clicks lights up another node, and the little warrior mannequin takes another step away from being a template and toward something that’s uniquely yours.
