ELEX Review - IGN

IGN: "ELEX has enough good ideas to be a great RPG in a year or two, but bugs and bad balance make it hard to recommend now."

That's too bad, The story and setting seem really interesting. Hopefully they patch the game up over the months and I'll give it a shot.

If you knew the developer of this game, then you would already know what to expect. This is a 30 person team responsible for such games like Risen and Gothic series. So basically, if you liked those games despite their flaws, then you'll like this game.

It's doesn't excuse them for releasing games in this state. If they ever want to be considered top tier then they have to work on the quality of their presentation.

From what I understand it's not a good studio to work for.

@segata that's interesting, I've never heard that but it would explain the state of their releases. Poor moral = poor products.

You haven't play this game, correct?

First off, Gothic was released 20 years ago and the third installment was almost unplayable at launch.

Second, Risen is a very bad series. It started OK with Risen 1, but the last two entries were atrocious.

Elex looks like to be no different. It has leaps and bounds of technical issues and a poor combat system. Only good thing seems to be the world and story, but everything else is boring, repetetive and broken af.

Maybe we're not playing the same game... I'm enjoying it, but then maybe my standards are far less hoity toity.

You haven’t played it.

That review doesn't make this one irrelevant. Ign has had some weird scores over the years but his points seem valid.

From the previews I knew it was going to get a bad score. Just look how wonky the enemies and friendly A.i move. Look to have. A great story and voice acting, but poor execution!
