The Ascent Xbox Series X|S Review: A Sublime Sci-Fi ARPG | Total Gaming Addicts

The Ascent is a tour de force from developer Neon Giant. The core gameplay mechanics are perfectly implemented with incredibly satisfying combat, accompanied by a fantastic story and numerous very welcome quality of life features. Its difficulty is just on the right side of challenging, and there is just the right amount of depth to its RPG underpinnings to satisfy more hardcore gamers without alienating newcomers.

Same thing with Returnal. Guess you'll have to try it for yourself.

Allow me to school you with facts, it's only a pleasure.

Returnal has an 86% metascore. Ascent has a 75% Metascore, and you want to tell me " Same thing with Returnal". No, sorry, but you are hopelessly incorrect. This is not "the same thing with Returnal".

Agreed sounds like a patch or 2 is needed. I'll wait a few weeks to iron some of the things out for before jumping in

I'm about to boot it up. One of my favorite reviewers, ACG, gave it a pretty strong review, and didn't make any real point on the game being buggy.

Time will tell.

I think this is the first 9 I've seen for this game out of 5 reviews that had it as broken with 3's and ok with 6' about all over the place wow. Guess I'll see where my own view of the game lands.

Polarising reviews but from what I've played it's a 7 for sure but in no way is it a 3 it's NOT A BROKEN GAME like the metro review made out to be.

That seemed like click bait to me🤷‍♂️

Not sure if reviews was done on an older build but I haven’t had any issues with the game so far.

It is broken. Might not happen to you, but it's there. The co-op mode in particular is the dog's dinner.

I've played the first two hours and I'm really enjoying my time with it. Reminds me a bit of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel (which also didn't get the best reviews, but I really liked it). Not amazing, but not bad either.

I've had a game breaking audio glitch and the odd graphical glitch, hopefully it gets an update soon.
