Critics Consensus

Forspoken features interesting open world parkour, but a badly written story, weak RPG elements, and boring combat make for a mediocre experience. For everything that Forspoken does well there’s a negative flip side.

James Billcliffe (CG247)

Its stuttering start belies a combat system that’s worth investing the effort to learn, but takes so long to get up to full speed that it’s already on borrowed time.

Forspoken’s opening hours are by far its worst. It took me 16 hours to complete the game, taking in a fair bit of the side offerings in this open-world action RPG, being careful not to sprint too quickly toward the game’s conclusion, though the temptation was there.

Forspoken’s flashy combat and parkour can be fun, but they aren’t enough to make its cliche story and barebones open world very interesting to explore.
