The Ascent’s arcology setting is splendid, if heavily derivative – shame that all you can do here is gun and grind.

A lovingly crafted action RPG with challenging, satisfying gunfights and an extraordinary cyberpunk setting.

The soundtrack is a highlight, with clear inspiration from some of the most iconic sci-fi scores in entertainment
