Evoland review | Thunderbolt

Nick Vracar, Thunderbolt writes:
Evoland is the kind of game that wishes to be endearing to the nostalgic. It’s a look way back at the history of the action/adventure genre, covering ground from Zelda to Diablo, thrown in with an assortment of Final Fantasy in between. Exploration uncovers gaming refinements and jokes poking fun at the cliches of yesteryear. There’s a lot of heart in this, which makes it even sadder to see it crippled by the shortcomings of the genres it attempts to emulate, along with some personal faults of its own. (Evoland, PC) 5/10
