"But while the appeal will be apparent to the competitive-minded player, Absolver's pointed focus is complex enough to turn others away. The journey from lowly Prospect to Absolver is arduous and challenging, but it's hardly inviting." - Destructoid review score 7.5
The game uses a different type of combat system wherein the player will need to combine a series of cards to create his very own fighting style. Each player will have his own combat deck where every move is stored. Every time he dodges or blocks an attack that certain move will be added into his combat deck as long as he wins that battle, this will allow him to mix and match different moves and create his very own movesets.
"Defeat is part and parcel of the experience, but your demise always teaches you something new that you can take with you into the next battle--and Absolver's deep, nuanced combat always finds ways of enticing you back for one more fight." -Gamespot review score 8/10
Absolver also offers different types of weapons to choose from. The only downside in using a specific weapon is that it will eventually break or even worse, fall out from your character's grip, picked up by the opponent and used against the player's character.
