Elex is an open-world RPG that aims big, but only manages to shoot itself in the foot.
ELEX 2 Review – The Final Verdict
Elex 2 is not a game that gives you a very good sense of purpose or even immediate goals at times, nor does it have a very interesting cast of characters or a particularly good story. Nor does it run very well or reward the player for trudging all of those issues in a way that feels proportional. Yet I can see why the uphill battle of getting much of anywhere and the perpetual mystery of what exactly you’re getting yourself into at any given time can add up to a genuine delight for the right players.
There are undeniably some addicting loops to be found beneath the rubble, but not enough to make this a particularly recommendable game in a day and age where so many better iterations of this genre already exist. If this was simply a case of the game catering to a niche crowd and being “more about the journey than the destination” I could roll with that. But with mediocre-at-best combat, vanilla-at-best graphics and some staggeringly bad performance issues eating away at Elex 2’s already limited appeal, I can’t help but advise those entering this version of Magalan to proceed with caution.
ELEX | Game Review
Elex had received quite a bashing from some reviewers. I decided to play the game for myself and here are my thoughts on the game.
