The Ascent
« on: August 09, 2021, 03:02:19 AM »

**** me! This is a visual & audible masterpiece!
After watching a stream, and then discovering it was on Game Pass, I couldn't resist giving it a try last night.

Mechanically it's nothing particularly spectacular, but damn it's such a visual treat; the detail & scale of the world, character designs, writing, voice acting, ambient music, and sfx are all top notch. Even the setting & lore are interesting & well fleshed out.

My enthusiasm might be tempered as I play more, and tire of the repetitive & simplistic combat, and if that's the case, it'll be a damn shame because this could've been a benchmark game for the future.

If you've got access to Game Pass I strongly recommend checking it out.
