Verdict

6.5 Fairly Average

Avil, the main character of the game can double-jump, glide, and clamber up walls, which makes him feel satisfyingly aerobic. This is pretty much it. Don't expect too much from this game. Considering the graphics, sounds and the lighting effects: the TechSeer gives it a score of 6.5 out of a solid 10.

When one of Extinction’s giant, screen-filling ogres first steps in front of you, it’s hard not to be awed by the sight of it. Just by looking at the size of these ridiculous looking monsters, you wonder how you “Avil” an innocent man with a sword smaller than the ogre’s toe could even scratch the gigantic creature. But as intimidating as the ogres are, they also have vital points that can be used against them to bring them crashing down hopefully without bringing much of the environment with them.

Extinction Review 2018

Extinction 2018 developed by Iron Galaxy, published by Maximum Games was released on April 10, 2018, on both PlayStation 4 and Steam.  The game seems like a tribute to both Shadow of the Colossus and Attack on Titan but never figured out how to really replicate the aforementioned masterpieces, The game fulfills its initial promise of being a Hack and Slash but didn’t really mean it. It’s more of a straightforward animated Monster hunting but in a loop. The same thing just keeps on happening and you never really feel involved in the environment.

Your objectives in a given level can range between saving a number of random passers by triggering teleport crystals, killing some of the “Ravenii” or their over-sized creeps, or you can keep the ancients intact until a timer runs out.

The combat on the ground is very sluggish and looks like the developers are a big of Bloodborne some additional features include zip lines and bounces off of various killings… Every game does not need to be BloodBorne but when you really feel like replicating God of War completely, you do include the button mashing concept along with rolls and dodges.  Check out the Gameplay for more on the combat style.

The fluid animation and size of the beats make killing them joyful, but once you’ve debugged the handful of armor tweaks they have and just a few strategies you need to adopt, again and again, taking the monsters down can start to feel really typical. The feels you’re going to get from first few of your battles is admirable, but that soon gives way to being really common. Later on, you’ll fight multiple ogres, some of whom raise their weapons, but the basics of killing them are the same.

Before you can even think about attacking an ogre, you’re going to have to charge up your Rune Strike attack by eloping the civilians. As I mentioned earlier, scattered around each map you’ll find teleport crystals and people cowering beside them, which can be activated to talk some sense into the terrified citizens leading them to safety. Doing so increases your rune power, and you’re now finally ready to attack. On foot combat of Extinction feels more like a hack-and-slash game, with chunky, arcade-like combat that’s enjoyable in short bursts, but ultimately quite boring and repetitive.

 

So who basically are you…? You’re the last of the Sentinels, an ancient clan dedicated to dealing with giant ogres, along with other, treacherous monsters. A magical portal has begun to seed out the mammoth sized into our world, so it’s up to Avil to compass them around and chop their big old heads right off.

What I like most about the game is the initial combat, the first few hours, which look fast, fairly complex, and decidedly unrealistic in a DMC sort of way. Aerial Movement focus is available within the game but it’s completely useless, the ogres are nearly building-sized, Avil thus becomes impossible to see. You’ll have a handy grappling hook you can use to bring yourself closer to foes – or foes closer to you works both ways.

Avil, the main character of the game can double-jump, glide, and clamber up walls, which makes him feel satisfyingly aerobic. This is pretty much it. Don’t expect too much from this game. Considering the graphics, sounds and lighting effects: the TechSeer gives it a score of 6.5 out of a solid 10.
