Player Quotes

"Lies of P is a classic example of why 'Game Feel' is so important. Despite its faults, LoP has a sheen most soulslikes lack. It just feels good top to bottom."

"I hate the 10 point scale for game reviews. Seriously should just be 'sucks ass, don’t play', 'flawed but you can still have some fun', 'solid game, definitely worth checking out', 'holy shit this is one of the best games ever'"

"On the technical side, the game runs super smoothly, even at higher resolutions."

"Dodging is very anemic... Either increase the range of it or if that would mess up the balance if fights are intended with parry in mind, allow dodge to be used as an 'Oh ♥♥♥♥ button' with a cooldown or something, because as it stands it doesn't feel good to use it."

"It looks cool, it feels cool to use, but ultimately I feel like it just acts as added clutter."

"The game feels... Sluggish? Now, everyone will have their own preferences, but I can't stop feeling that the playable character is moving at 75% of the speed they should."

"The game seems to want an aggressive playstyle, with perfect parrys, bloodborne hop dodges... However, the way the enemy attack animations work, having a huge delay on many of them, asks for more methodical and slow paced combat."
