Critics Consensus: 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.

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.

Rick Lane (PC Gamer)

80/100

“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.”

8/10

“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.”

8/10

“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.”
