Mortal Shell

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Mortal Shell is a brisk Soulslike experience that doesn’t overwhelm players, but more attention to the story would have gone a long way, and problems in scenario design and world building offer needless frustrations.

Game Info

Mortal Shell is a ruthless and deep action-RPG that tests your sanity and resilience in a shattered world. Your adversaries spare no mercy, with survival demanding superior awareness, precision and instincts. Possess lost warriors, track down hidden sanctums of the devout, and face formidable foes.

“Both its world and story are entertaining to investigate, with glimpses of brilliance hidden amidst its gloomy environments and obscure characters. Ultimately, Mortal Shell is not a Souls game, but it is the best not-Souls game I’ve played so far.”

“Mortal Shell is an extremely loyal Dark Souls homage with just enough clever new ideas to make fighting through its gorgeous world feel like something more than a rehash.”

“Developer Cold Symmetry’s budget action-RPG is a love letter to From Software’s work, but Mortal Shell’s take on similar ideas feels aimed at those who struggle to get through Soulsborne games.”
