A competent Soulslike lifted by its alternate history premise and Parisian setting, but it’s not quite enough to compete with its obvious inspirations.

September 7, 2022 |

Though slightly wanting when compared with its Souls contemporaries, Steelrising still offers up challenging combat, inventive enemies, and an attractive and atmospheric take on 18th-century Paris at a time of great upheaval.

Steelrising is Spiders Studio’s best game to date, but one too many bugs and tech issues hold it back from greatness. Its combat system remains engaging and enjoyable throughout, and the unique, mechanical take on the French Revolution means it’ll live longer in the memory than previous FromSoftware tributes. It’s one for the genre fanatics for now, but six months down the line, Steelrising may be in tip-top shape. It’s more than worth playing at that point.
