  • Great game i wouldn't say it as great as dark souls 3 but considering the new studio the Budget this is a title that i wish they expand on more shells more weapons more places to be and mostly more npcs ... Aside from that combat animation is solid the game isn't really hard but it ain't easy either ... It feels good gives you that dark souls dark and doomed atmosphere but with a touch of it's own ... Of course the lore is just far lesser than the souls game ...

  • This game is sick!!!! Im gonna say it. I love it more then Bloodborne. This game is really filling my Void while I wait for Elden ring. And actually stands shoulder to shoulder with the Soulsborne’s. Is it better? Hard to say. I actually enjoy the parry and healing system More. At first it was rough. Learning curve. But now i learned, and I am destroying with Tiel

  • Ok so I'm not saying this game isnt like dark souls or is like dark souls, it sure does look like it but looks can be deceiving but bruh. You literally said, "there's a lot in this game that is totally unlike dark souls.." and then continued to mention a bunch of souls-like things. How is it when you see a game that looks nothing like dark souls you compare it to dark souls, but then you get the chance to swear up and down that a game is just like dark souls and make every comparison under the sun and youd be RIGHT, and now you're tryna tell me it's not like dark souls. MAKE UP YOUR MIND FALCON

  • This game was so easy. Don’t believe the hype. This is souls-like in that people think it’s hard. Everything else is garbage. Sound is garbage, shells are garbage, enemies are repetitive garbage. I beat every boss but the final one on my first try. It’s not THAT good of a game. It’s mediocre at best. Combat is what makes dark souls so fun. The combat in this game, while slow and methodical, just doesn’t stand up to any dark souls game. It’s like a worse version of DS2. The parry windows are clunky and inconsistent. The ability to avoid damage at will is dumb. It’s just an okay game. 5/10

    yeoitsmattyeoitsmattUukausi sitten
    • Toyin Dawodu Look, the game is just okay. I’m sorry but the hype around this is so overblown. Not nearly as overblown as say, The Last of Us Part II, but still too much. That’s not the same as me saying this company did a bad job making the game - that’s not what I’m saying. The game is just okay but I’m sure we haven’t seen the best of this company yet. It’s certainly not this.

    • Çøsmvœ' I’m not shitting on the game at simply lower expectations. These hyped up reviews about how it’s going to “scratch that dark souls itch” and the “combat is great” are just to overblown. It’s not accurate. I’m sorry but I don’t base my opinion on a curve predicated on budget or team size or whatever. I paid my $30, I beat the game, and that’s that. It was just okay. I don’t care who made it. I paid for it. They have my money, here is my opinion. Like it or not.

      yeoitsmattyeoitsmattUukausi sitten
    • ​@yeoitsmatt from an objective standpoint yeah say if this game WAS made by an AAA company with a virtually unlimited budget mortal shell wouldn't be that great, it would honestly just be an above-average game at best, but that isn't why myself and thousands of others praise it. This was made by just a group of guys who like dark souls and wanted to share it, and for 30 dollars a project of this magnitude with respect to such a small development team, budget and time, it's quite remarkable, especially for a first game. No one is saying this is the greatest game ever, cause it's not; I would say Ds2 did actually does have more content and quality put into it, but that was all of fromsoft with an established background in games plus infinitely more money, You're shitting on this game like you expected much more. Your expectations are ignorantly high. This game just shows that even with such limited resources, manpower, and budget the team can make something acceptable and fun. Just goes to show they have a shitload of potential if nothing else. That's why I will be supporting cold symmetry and the mortal shell project, not because it's ground-breakingly good, but because a lot of effort was involved.

    • Çøsmvœ' I do. It’s a wonderful accomplishment for those developers but let’s stop pretending that that feat alone all of a sudden makes it a great game. I totally agree that this shows promise but let’s leave it at that. It’s really just an OKAY game.

  • I am not feeling it thus far. I want to like it, and hopefully I will warm up to it. After re-beating Dark Souls III and experiencing Code Vein, I was in the kick for more "Souls" - esque games. I bought Hellpoint and Mortal Shell on-launch. I would say I am about seven hours into Mortal Shell, but I have had a tough time with him. Hellpoint has a lot of glitches and lagging issues, especially when I played it with my wife in local co-op. It became so bad it actually crashed and corrupted the save file. I've replayed it on single-player since and I've enjoyed it a lot more as sort-of a more hack-and-slash feeling Souls game. Mortal Shell, on the other-hand, hasn't won me over yet. The fighting is slower (but not more methodical, just kind of drawn out), the scenery while aesthetically appeasing, feels difficult to distinguish and navigate, and its ambiguity feels more striking. I don't know. I am still open-minded for it, but I'm not into it thus far.

  • I just got the platinum for this game today. This was my first take on the souls like genre and not gonna lie the Forever Alone trophy really broke me. The anxiety I get during boss fights knowing that a hit would mean I have to restart the sequence again. Not to mention that each boss has two phases excluding the final boss. Overall, I enjoyed it. I'm now looking forward to the Demon Souls remake and see how I will do with that. PS: Archer type enemies are such dicks. Especially in that one particular stage where you need to get across a line of these pricks. Good times lmao!

  • So tired of "souls" games. These guys have good level design and great storytelling they could have written and made a legit GOOD RPG(I'm talking Elder Scrolls level) yet they took the easy way out and just did a souls game. The game is pretty to look at, but it gets STALE and OLD fast. Because guess what? If you've played one souls game youv'e basically played them all.

Played for a couple of hours. Uninstalled. Wish I could get a refund. Mortal Shell is a half-assed clone of other games that did it better.

  • Mortal Shell is probably the most satisfying Souls-like I've played yet. It takes exactly what it likes from Souls and makes its own streamlining improvements. Hope they add a few more weapon types moving forward, while being careful to keep them distinct. The shells are already well-rounded to encouraging use of different mechanics and playstyles available. Harros is the balanced all-rounder, Tiel favors dodging, Solomon favors parries; Eredrim favors risking hardening, parrying, and making trades.

The biggest surprise for me out of all the games I've played was Remenant From The Ashes as the replayability was all there. That being said Mortal Shell has major potential in a sequel and I feel they can improve the next game big time with some extra budget.
