The clunkyness is part of the charm. Haven't played Elex yet but if it's anything like Risen 1 then it's probably not really clunky, people just expect the same they've seen from every other game.

I'm playing through Witcher 3 right now and it's so bad in differentiating between combat mode and exploration mode combat. So if I want to climb a rock but there are enemies attacking me, I can't because the jump key suddenly becomes the roll key and if I sheathe my weapon all it does is make Geralt attack with his fists instead of getting out of combat mode. Now that is garbage.

They've had 7 years to figure out what makes other third person action RPG games feel much less clunky and janky,


So has Bethesda and you don't see them doing anything about it.

Really wanted a game in the line of Gothic/Risen to be good in recent years. Sad that's it's not.


Reviews on Steam are mostly positive. Most Gothic old-school fans have been praising the game. There are 500 post Elex threads on 4chan every time of the day. Don't dismiss the game because gaming journalists said it's bad, give it a chance.

I've been watching CohhCarnage play it on Twitch the last few days, it doesn't look too bad. But at the $49 price, that's a bit steep for what I'm seeing.

This. It's basically Gothic 2 in a post-apocalyptic setting, though I find the controls to be much better so far.

Add that to Bound by Blood & Technomancer. Games that looked interesting at first but ended up being Jank city.


It’s on par with Gothic 1/2 & Risen 1. This may be the best Gothic game yet.

I haven't actually looked at any of what the press is for the game, and I have played and beat Gothic 2 (and even managed to force myself through ArcaniA to completion twice).

It's not the worst game, it's not good either. Please don't make me out as dismissing it entirely, I even stated that I will probably buy it again because I did give it a chance already; I ended up refunding it. I'm most upset that it feels like a game that came out ten years ago, with a small graphical uplift.

There hasn't been anything better than Elex in the genre in recent years. I can think of Witcher 3 and nothing else.

This game really caught my attention but not sure about it just yet.

Does it seem pretty well optimised? I'm still rocking an old ass 660ti and from gameplay I've seen it will run around 30ish fps at 1080p medium.
Do the math!
