Immortals of Aveum is flashy magical run-and-gun | Sirus

"Ultimately, Aveum is a fun time while you are in combat and quickly forgettable once you’re out. If you’re into lots of colorful explosions or particle effects in general, this game’s for you." -Sirus Gaming

"most divisive" lol wut? The game is not divisive in the least, it's pretty unanimous that it's average at best.

I don't see what is divisive about it, "unknown" might be better as it flew past most people's radar.

i get the feeling you thought you'd be clever and eye grabbing with that little, but that's not the right word to use LOL

Hey Sam, did you just wake up from a coma or something? anyone else over there that gets industry and consumer trends that can take a stab at what you attempted?

BrainSyphoned8d ago

It must be suffering from the EAtax. You know, the tax that keeps exactly mediocre games from being game of the year. Can't believe it didn't win.

Well, putting aside that its just EA published and not EA developed, there are 2 EA published games that have gotten GOTY at the Game Awards since they started

Immortals of Aveum is too mid to compete with the big gaming guns of 2023 | Reviews

Immortals of Aveum is an exciting new IP with promise held back by too many issues.

TheProfessional22d ago

It really is. It's too bad because the controls and graphics are solid but they really should've been more creative with the enemies and story. Also it's M but should have been a lot bloodier and more intense. If it was more Hexen style could've been a gem. You can tell whoever developed it tried though because the game itself and the magic/shooting is pretty good. Just needed more creativity aesthetically.

If anything is mid to me about the game it’s the pacing a bit. But, at the same token, I really like jacks personality and Devyn is pretty hilarious as well. Honestly, these characters are resonating a bit for me in their exchanges and dialogue.

When jack went to the underwell and met the magic eaters. When he started interacting with the leader was very entertaining to me.

I think people might be a little over critical of this game. It’s a solid 7-8 so far to me.

TheProfessional22d ago (Edited 22d ago )

I agree I actually like Jack also. Reviews were so critical but the jokes aren't any worse than all the marvel stuff people love so I'm not sure why it was so heavily criticized for the story etc.
