Eldest Souls

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Eldest Souls is a boss-rush game with Souls-like aesthetics that wears its inspiration on its sleeve. Its punishing difficulty may turn some away, but beautiful pixel-art and creative boss battles make it worth your time.

Game Info

In the beginning, there were Gods. Long imprisoned and forgotten in the Temples of the Citadel, they have syphoned the life essence from the world in their final act of vengeance. A lone Knight embarks upon a quest to slay the Gods and restore the balance. One warrior. One sword. Against them all.

8.3/10

Eldest Souls’ punishing difficulty may turn off some, but this entertaining and rewarding combat system made me look forward to every titanic face-off.

8/10

Eldest Souls will punish you with its difficulty, but you’re going to love it thanks to refreshing combat mechanics and ridiculously frantic boss fights. However, you might encounter a few issues due to visual miscues, and replayability is solely dependent on how much you wish to rerun tougher encounters.

6/10

Eldest Souls wears its inspiration on its sleeve, though in the end that counts for very little. The boss fights are often unbalanced and tedious, which only contributes to a frustration that deters you from wanting to pick the controller back up.
