    Most low or 1 star review on amazon(de) for the PC version are because the boxed version got delivered but can't be used until Steam unlocks the game.

  3. Pirahna Bytes haven't made a good game since Risen so I think my concerns over Elex are justified. I won't be judging it based on game reviews - fuck game reviews - but I won't be buying it until I see some impressions on here from people I respect.

    What. You get only a Steam key in your boxed games nowadays? That's genuinely hilarious.

    There's noone on Codex you can respect. And the impressions here will be "it's fucking shit". Don't be a pussy and buy the game.

    Sometimes there's data on the disk - but it's useless if the game is bound to Steam. The game is available on GOG Day 1 - but won't download(?) until 7pm CET as well.
    If you have a console version, you can play it now.

    The best indication that the game is not utter shit is when a lot of people in shitty gaming message boards say it's too hard, so it already bodes well for Elex. There's a bunch of "I can't find Caius Cosades" type shit out there, or "waaah I need to train skills where's muh levelup points" warms my heart.

    They bitch about not having a minimap, that the game doesn't hold their hand by telling them what level they should be for a quest and that there's an endurance bar? Sorry my frogspeak is rusty, but the reviewer sounds like a surrender monkey.

    They also cry about not being able to equip the cool equipment they find right away (a throwback to Gothic, as they say).

    Not much of a difference for the FPS cost, seems like.

    The review scores are so bad that it's hard to understand if it's only because most people are used to hand-holding or because the game is also shit apart from being old school (aka "the Grimoire phenomenon")

    Seeing the complaints levelled at the game so far, I am seriously tempted to buy it right now.

    Nah.. Risen 2&3 had their moments. My biggest complaint was that they were too easy, but they weren't shit or anything.

    You can usually tell if person is retarded or not if you read the review.
    Also, grimoire is not shit, it's great.

    Can't read french reviews :P
    But ok we're talking about scores like 2 and 3 out of 10 which indicates there might be significant technical issues in the game or some really broken mechanics.. Exactly like Grimoire....

    *I will reserve my judgement until prestigious codex individuals play the game

    If the score is 2 or 3 you don't even have to know french to tell that those french reviewers are retarded. It's pretty obvious that ELEX is not 2 or 3 unless it is being judged by a retard in rage induced coma after he had a fit about game not being assassin's creed or something.
