7/10

The version of Palworld on Xbox and the Microsoft Store might not be nearly as polished as the Steam version right now, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still a ton of fun.

79/100

Palworld is an entertaining game if you connect with its survival and monster-catching mechanics, and its gameplay loop. But at the same time, it’s easy to feel like it’s not original, that it doesn’t do anything you haven’t seen before, and that it crosses some red lines by taking inspiration from certain games.

2.5/5 stars

Although Palworld can provide an enjoyable experience for a while, it’s a hard sell. It feels like halves of two different games that, when put together, don’t seem to make a whole.
