Grab The Games: Achilles: Legends Untold
Another day, another review for our fans. Today, I couldn't be happier that we have the opportunity to review a new indie game called Achilles: Legends Untold and that we are going to present why this title is as excellent as it sounds! But what is this game anyway? Is it worth the hype? Should you pick it up when available? Stick around, and you will find out now. Achilles: Legends Untold is an isometric Souls-like action RPG set in a world inspired by ancient Greek mythology
As the mighty warrior Achilles, you’ll be pitted against great warriors and giant mythological creatures in a centuries-long war between Ares and Hades. Your journey for glory will take you across vast and dangerous lands; from the besieged city of Troy to the golden city of Mycenae, and down to the depths of Tartarus. To begin with, the very first aspect that really impressed me is the graphics and, in general, the artwork of the title. They are quite satisfying and create a pretty good atmosphere for even the most demanding players.
A title that is a great idea with a really beautiful setting and a decent voice and storyline. Moreover, you can experience immersive battles against challenging enemies that work together and adapt to your playstyle. Powered by the innovative Group AI Action (GAIA) system, your foes will collaborate in a variety of unique and unpredictable ways during combat. You can forge your own playstyle using a deep ability skill tree and weapon crafting system
Bring raw materials you find back to the forge of Hephaestus to upgrade your weapons and equipment, or craft even more powerful ones. The Souls you’ve collected during combat can be used at a Hade's Shrine to boost your stats and unlock unique abilities in the skill tree. As I briefly mentioned before, the title suffers from some issues. The optimization is not that good, the graphics and the voiceover are mediocre and in general, in my opinion, it was not ready to be widely available even on early access.
To sum up, the game is really unique but suffers at the moment from good execution. It definitely has great potential, and I believe in the future it will satisfy even the most demanding players. It definitely needs more time and frequent updates
