But this time Lords of the Fallen it handled the competition the wrong way, discarding everything good it had created in the first episode and leaving room for the rules of the rules. RPG style dark souls.

Passion and love have been replaced by cold game mechanics Everything seems to lack soul and care, despite the positive points perceived in the past, which we will analyze later. The 2014 game was unique because it was different from others; The environments were vibrant and our imagination lived with them, lost among haunted castles and ornate squares. But now they only survive there amazing graphics, Statistics Hey huge bosses. Is this really the right direction to go?

The worst part about this problem is that deaths in war are often due to a single mistake, not human error. serious deficiency on the technical sideThis raises the frustration bar to the maximum.


A few statistics, well done!

All in all, Lords of the Fallen is an average soulmate that’s true to the modern-day conventions of the genre, but with a few dashes of innovation. The mechanics, breathtaking scenery and story of the Lantern and the Umbral dimension are intriguing. But unfortunately, unlike the original game, Lords of the Fallen lacks heart and soul, making it difficult for the player to become immersed and passionate about it. Moreover, movements such as fights are cumbersome. If you are looking for perfection, Hand Ring It may be a choice for you.
