    Oh, boy.

    Well, for starters, you do have a key to the same version - so you can play it and decide for yourself.

    It is also somewhat odd to pick one negative preeview out of several we've had so far. Here are some:

    - https://www.hardcoregamer.com/2018/...-narrative-against-beautiful-backdrop/289874/
    - http://www.gamerassaultweekly.com/2018/02/ash-gods-redemption-impressions/
    - http://www.capsulecomputers.com.au/2018/02/ash-of-gods-redemption-preview/

    Last, the preview version this guy played only lasts for an hour, so it doesn't really show character and story development, the choices and consequences, party development and character skills leveling. Still, there are good insights there, we do pay attention to them, looking for places to improve. However, it is just 1 opinion, we are looking forward to the reviews from the big shots: IGN, PC Gamer, Rock, Paper & Shotgun, and hopefully RPG Codex :greatjob:

    The IGN one is up, I told you! http://www.ign.com/articles/2018/02...nner-saga-mixed-with-a-classic-adventure-game

    :evilcodex:

    It does, but the powerful attacks use up HP or MP, so even taking turns your opponent will either run out of resources fast or won't be able to do any real damage. You wouldn't need to leave injured enemies alive to prevent healthy ones from attacking you.

    Well, should be, the majority of previews are positive.
