Immortals Fenyx Rising Review: Feels Pleasant No Matter How Long You Play
A peculiar journey of Fenyx traveling through the vast mythical Greek lands, captivating scenery and perplexing rivals.
Immortals Fenyx Rising is a game that will charm absolutely everyone and will keep you intact throughout the entire play through.
- Combat Action
Immortals Fenyx Rising is like a breath of fresh air when it comes to mythological games. With the recent focus on a bunch of games set in the mythological pasts of Greeks, Nords, and more, Immortals Fenyx Rising feels like it creates a branch for itself. This game is what Lil’ Dicky is to hip hop and by that comparison, I mean that the game is tons of fun but at the same time it creates a parallel of its own that has a brand new identity and lightness to it.
Immortals Fenyx Rising starts off with banter between Zeus and Prometheus. While you play, Prometheus narrates the tale of a lowly warrior whose first glimpse of battle throws him in between a great battle of Gods and Monsters.
Typhon is the main villain of the story but getting to him will take roughly 30 hours of gameplay, the pacing of the narratives and the interjection of jokes and light-hearted humor keeps you on your toes for the entire duration of the game, it never feels like a drag the gameplay complements the humor and aesthetics of the game perfectly.
Even with a continuous stretch of over 10 hours of non-stop playing, you will certainly wish to play more. The game offers players a ton of things added with weapons used by the Gods themselves and as you progress, you keep unlocking more things that will help you in your godly crusade.
The story of Fenyx is not something about saving old Greece. It is more personal, a motivating journey to reveal the secret of restoring humans back to life. It is a peculiar journey of Fenyx traveling through the vast mythical Greek lands, captivating scenery, and perplexing rivals. You will also make some friends on this epic adventure.
The game has a lot of similarities with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I consider both as phenomenal games that have their own unique flavor and zest to them. The only thing I regret about Immortals Fenyx Rising is you can use Far Sight. It allows you to easily locate anything on the map without the necessity of visiting that place. It does take away the surprise factor of finding hidden stuff in uncharted territories.
With the same, I appreciate Immortals Fenyx Rising’s non-linear gameplay. It however manages to fix all of the cracks that you might come across in the game. It’s not flawless but it is still one of the most charming games we’ve played in all of 2020.
Bosses are the biggest challenges in Immortals Fenyx Rising. The deeper you push the tougher the enemies become, a driving power to persuade gamers to keep playing. Immortals Fenyx Rising features enough content to stay engaged.
Immortals Fenyx Rising focuses a lot on combat action, even though if you have a bunch of cool weapons of Gods, you will have to attentive to your vitality and stamina. Both these features are interlinked and hold the places of the primary aspect of combat. It’s your stamina meter that shows how much of a stressful activity Fenyx can handle before needing to catch his breath. HP works a bit differently.
Health is divided into 4 sub bars, it will refill automatically until the last bar remains. For the rest, you have to consume a health potion. Apart from normal health and stamina, the weapons and gameplay also have some peculiarities. Every weapon is fused with a designated job, the real fun begins when you swap weapon midway during combat, battles turn more chaotic and fun with different weapons.
Weapons are earned by completing certain quests that will take you to a completely different dimension altogether and while unlocking them seems pretty easy enough, it’s all guarded behind jumping puzzles and obstacles.
The game opts for more creative liberties while not bringing in photo-realistic graphics and it works amazingly for this tale. There’s depth in the world and in the characters themselves without needing to show every detail.
The design of Immortal Fenyx Rising makes you seem like you’re playing one of your childhood stories. Each character, vile and virtuous, has been given some of the best designs. Humans and Gods are easily identifiable. There’s no bleeding line where you look at someone and think if they might be friend or foe.
The tone of the game and the setting from each blade of grass to the infinite sky, everything looks absolutely beautiful. The game is pleasing to the eyes, and even though there are monsters out there to get you, there’s naivety in that, the effects of every element can be brutal. The design of the game is made in such a way that it will please even those who exclusively play AAA titles. This feels like a much-needed break.
Even binge gaming Immortal Fenyx Rising might not make you feel tired and you’ll always want more.
Immortals Fenyx Rising is a game that will charm absolutely everyone and will keep you intact throughout the entire playthrough. While the game did not have any sort of glitches or bugs at all, I personally thought that the inclusion of FarSight took the fun out of adventuring into the unknown.
The puzzles could have been made with a bit more variety as you will come across them often, having a bit of change every now and then would be indeed appreciative. Immortals Fenyx Rising gives you the pleasure of playing a Zelda game on PC or on the console, without investing in something else.
Immortals Fenyx Rising is a fun game that will dissolve all the mundane hours of the day and give you a pleasant feeling no matter how long you play it.
