Edit
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.

This game i have had for a while and although not completed in the time i have had it is a really enjoyable game. i have recently came back to it in 2019 and got slightly further than i did so im progressing slowly. this game is a learning curve and a challanging game from being a souls fan and other soul game a likes this is one of them from challanging combat to the awesome soundtrack. lords of the fallen is a lot slower however and bosses moves sets are very few and repetitive their are sometimes ganks in the boss fights which can also be annoying but if you can master parrying/backstabs then you can easily kill the small mobs. the world can also be confusing at times and may not always be clear on where you need to go.

Review from Steam

This game is essentially the knock-off replica of Dark Souls. I picked this up after Darksouls Remastered and finishing Dark Souls 2. I have about 40 hours in it so obviously I enjoyed it enough to beat it and review it.
It's good, not great. Here are some positives and negatives:
POSITIVES:
• If you enjoy DS, you will enjoy this by proxy. The devs do a good job recreating the overall feeling of a FromSoft game. This has the same mechanics - e.g., "bonfires", similar fighting mechanics, RPG level-ups, host of magic and weapons, etc.
• It's got the same difficulty of 'GeT GuD' - but easier a bit
• You can tell the devs love DS and I am looking forward to the sequel to see how they grew as a team
• The story is easily-er understood and not vague
NEGATIVES:
• This is "clunky and slower" is the only way I can describe it. It's DS, but it's... ... heavier..?
• The bosses are basically all human-like. No giant monsters, etc.
• A lot shorter than what I experienced in DS1 and 2
• The items you get are limited and kind of exhausted caring about pickups halfway through. They have the items you need but it starts to just feel incredibly limited on items collected or "shards" (Magic boost, fire boost, lightning boost, energy boost - and that's basically it)
• It's by far the best DS close or copypasta game out there.
This is a game I want to love and I think their admiration of Dark Souls is great. It's good, not great. It is 100% obvious a Dark Souls copy, but it's not as good.
If you are like me and want a stop-gap with DS or just miss the DS vibe, this game will keep you occupied. I really am more excited for their sequel because I want to see how they have grown as a company and dev team.
I have no idea how to review this to explain my feelings here. Awesome job, team, but we all know this is not a FromSoft game lol. Recommended.

Dark Souls, but you wear 85kg of armour and the camera-man is drunk and dizzy

Review from Steam

I don't know why the hate or the spite on this game so far.
It's a soulslike, yet i don't understand why everybody has to compare it to our Lord and Savior Dark Souls all the time.
It is a different game. It's enjoyable, it's fun, it's not too hard and not too complex, yet it has its challenges.
It does not pretend to be a masterpiece, yet it's a solid title that i recommend to all soulslike fans and, for the love of all that's hollow, thankfully it's not a f.....ing roguelike.
Buy it on sale, play it and stop pretending all games have to be of a superior quality to be enjoyed.
Also, stop with the "AAA pricetag" BS that i keep reading because it's more on sale rather than when it is not.

Review from Steam

I'm writing as i'm playing right now my 3rd playthrough.
I'm 45 hours in the game, i beat it a first time with Rogue, than NG+ and Warrior: Now i'm playing Cleric as i want to try all the classes and all the spells.
I have to admit that i really like this game.
Yes like everyone says it's a slow Dark Souls but it also really depends what kind of armor and weapon you use. I had a totally different experience playing a tanky warrior than a swift rogue.
Also the rhythm of the combat feels slow but also powerful and impactful if it means something.
You can like the FromSoftware games and still enjoy this one, for example i can enjoy Bloodborne, Sekiro or even Nioh as much as Lords Of The Fallen.
It's similar to Dark Souls in a lot of ways but what this game does different is then pretty interesting. Like the XP multiplier when you kill ennemies, the stamina saving mechanic by timing your attacks perfecly, or just the spells that come with the class.
I have the feeling it became a thing to hate this game or just complain about the clunkyness....i don't agree with those comments.
In my opnion it's not a bad game, not the best but i guess good enough for me to want to finish it 3 times.
Lords of the Fallen 2 is coming (maybe one day) and i'll definitely gonna try it.

Review from Steam

Is this game a flawless masterpiece? lol hell no. Am I having a good time with it considering it seems to be on sale for $5 like all the time? Hell yes.
Listen, it's clunky, it's pretty linear, and it's not really that hard for a Souls-like. But it has a really clear identity, which I think helps a lot, and if you actually enjoy the chunkiness the combat can be pretty fun. There's nothing wrong with enjoying a game that is just slightly past thumbs in the middle, and that's where I'm at with this. It's not a great game, but it's a good one and I'm having a good time.

Why is everyone so negative. Its not the best game but its far from the worst. Get it on sale and kick some demon butt.

Don't go into it thinking it'll be just like Dark Souls or Elden Ring - it is its own thing. Not bad for the time it came out, it was enjoyable. Story isn't anything amazing, but the world is well crafted. Get on sale $$$ - no regrets there.
