I really like pretty much everything Piranha Bytes games, but this one was a little rough.

I'm glad it's getting another console release, being that the 360 port was pretty mediocre, but this is also a game that starts off really strong and then the last third is just a monotonous grind.

Currently playing Elex 2, and it's fantastic.

It's a matter of taste really...Either you enjoy it, or you don't...It's like my relation to the "Fallout" series, I like the old-school "Fallout" games MUCH more than the FPS games, but that's just how I am...True and fair enough...That one I haven't tried though.

Depends on what you're looking for.

Piranha Bytes are definitely a AA team, and it usually comes out in their stiff animations and unrefined, yet complex,.combat.
What they do really well though is make worlds you actually want to explore, and give the player a lot of agency in how they complete missions and affect the world.

Currently playing Elex 2 and most of their past issues have been greatly cleaned up. You can tell the extra funding went to good use.

Their games have improved since then for sure . I like Elex , Risen 2 & 3 , etc . Not high end games but decent RPGs . The first game was just too rough for me when I played it . Timing sometimes makes a big difference
