Undertale gameplay video

Undertale gameplay video

Undertale is an independent title which has been available since mid September. As most people, we became quite curious about it since everyone havs been praising it a lot ever since it came out. Based on what players and the press have said about it, the combat system and the writing are very well done and encourage multiple playthroughs. Considering the game reached a 93 Metascore and 8.3 User Score on Metacritic, there is obviously a lot more to it than meets the eye.

Bought it and i rather enjoy it. The artstyle is really bad sometimes, but the game gives allot of surprises :D

I only played it for like an hour but so far it hasn't been that great tbh. I'm guessing i'm not far along enough for it to shine yet.

How are you playing? Did you know you can go through the ENTIRE game without hitting or killing an enemy?! Try that way. THEN go back and KILL EVERYTHING! Both are very hard in their own ways but both very satisfying.

Well, i've killed one enemy, and i don't think i had any other choice. Other than that, i've basically let them all go. I just can't imagine that two endings based on sparing or killing all the enemies will thrill me to that extent.

But like i said, maybe i've just not gotten far enough in it. So far it just feels quirky for the sake of it.

They are VERY different endings. It's quite amazing how different they are to be honest, and if you kill even one enemy you lose out on the pacifist ending. It is possible to not kill any enemy. I promise.

mosannam: When i fought Toriel noting other than attacking seemed to work?

Not that it matters all that much. I'll probably finish it as i assume it's not exactly a 40 hour game or anything.

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (7 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (8 Hours ago)
