Artbook: Discover the designs of Lords of the Fallen in this unique 96-page Artbook. Each page sheds light on the meticulous process of translating a collage of ideas into the language of the game. Marvel at the concept art of many talented artists that joined together to create everything from breathtaking locations, powerful Rhogar Lords and their sly minions, to detailed armors, weapons and items that aid Harkyn on his journey to face the gravest threat of all – the Fallen God.
In the Time of the Ancients, the Worldly Realm was ruled by a God of pure evil, who enslaved all humankind under his Dominion. But fear turned to anger as rebellion grew in the hearts of men - until the dawn of the Great Rising, when the fight for freedom began. After a glorious victory that cast aside the Fallen God, humans dictated a new order... a world where no sin can ever be forgiven and redemption was not an option.
Now, millennia later, the world trembles in fear as the Demonic Rhogar Legion returns from their dark realm, driven by a foul hunger for innocent spirits. Humanity, in a desperate last act, calls upon an unlikely defender - a convicted sinner, rejected by society and cast out of the light... a man known as Harkyn. Now, alongside his mentor, Kaslo, they must travel to the source of the Darkness... to face the Lords of the Fallen.
Plunge into a fast paced action RPG with a complex and satisfying melee combat system where weapons, armor and skills directly influence the enemy's speed and attacks... if all else fails, lay waste to your foes using forbidden magic power.

Lords Of The Fallen is not an incredible game, but if you are a fan of the Souls genre it's good enough to keep you entertained until the end. There are a few things which feel a bit rushed, mostly the magic and how it works. I did my run without it just beause I didn't like its mechanics. The story is also nothing incredible, but I still appreciated the effort: it's well told and gives you choices. As for the rest, the game actually surprised me with a lot of attention to the details, a great art style, secrets, shortcuts and so on. It's not as hard as Dark Souls, so if you played any of the 3 this will be easier for you, but it might still be difficult for newcomers of the genre.
I actually rated this better than DS2 insofar as i actually had more fun with it. Not knocking on DS which is a great franchise and one that I enjoy greatly, but DS2 seemed to lack a little 'soul' and was missing that omph-factor for me. Lords on the other hand pressed all my right buttons. While in some ways character creating/building isn't as diverse as DS, it is still robust enough for those who enjoy tweaking builds. Much like DS, there isn't a huge or great plot (or dialogue) for the most parts. But then again, I don't think many played DS for it's plot or dialogue. Game play is very similar to DS but slightly more forgiving with less 'cheap-shot-insta-kills'. Graphics are decent but unless your rig is pretty robust expect frame-rate issues. I have not had many crashes thankfully but every single one is traumatic if you're the type that hordes xp. I do hope they fix the crashing soon as it is spoiling what is turning out to be a pretty fun game for me. A good filler for DS players and a good game for newer players to get introduced to the concept.
Lords of the Fallen is borrows a lot from Dark Souls but is not as hard as Dark Souls, but also borrows a bit from Diablo. Sort of. In Lords of the Fallen you traverse through several different areas fighting off monsters and bosses that look like they were designed by the artist behind the latest Diablo game. Dodging, blocking, and attacking all feel similar to dodging, blocking, and attacking in Dark Souls, including a stamina system, but because of how the enemies move the combat is easier than Dark Souls, making the game easier than Dark Souls, but not as satisfying. Additionally, Lords of the Fallen borrows the same experience points system that Dark Souls had, but with new tweaks such as a timer that causes experience dropped from death disappear if you don’t get it soon enough. However, unlike Dark Souls, Lords of the Fallen uses a magic and mana system similar to Diablo, where you have regenerating magic and spells that are tied to your class that tied to and dependent on your playstyle. If Dark Souls was too hard for you or want to see if its difficult gameplay is right for you, you should consider playing Lords of the Fallen. However, with its sadly weaker story and more forgettable characters, Lords of the Fallen comes off as a non-Dark Souls alternative to the experience you would get if you were to play Dark Souls.
...for a Dark Souls veteran. It can get quite challenging for a newbie to this genre. But the game is awesome. It's got pretty rough foes. Nothing impossible to tackle though. The game is pretty, needless to say that. But how pretty is it, exactly? Well, the graphics of the game are top-notch, and it will run smoothly on a next-gen computer. The gameplay is smooth, and the combat system is satisfying, but still can get frustrating. Overall, the game is good. Not the best, and it's definitely above average.
Lords of the Fallen is an odd thing. The game is set in a Dark Fantasy world where demons are everywhere. You have to explore dark dungeons and fights big monsters to progress while collecting new pieces of armor and weapons. It's Dark Souls, but a bit simplier and more limited (You only have three classes and there is not much space for you to customize your character). It's not bad at all. It's even a pretty good Action RPG game. It's just not original at all and it's rather strange for Namco Bandai to publish this game while they're already publishing Dark Souls!
