Iron Galaxy's latest project called Extinction made its debut yesterday. The new game does not have any microtransactions featuring a skill-based combat system, an ever-changing battlefield, a healthy selection of weapons, and 150 ft Ogres called the Ravenii. The first gameplay footage and trailers of the game shows a lot of promise, however, let's take a quick look at what some of the gaming industry's critics have to say about the game.
"Extinction is a good blueprint for a more interesting game." - Destructoid 6/10
Despite its promising gameplay previews, it seems that the game has failed to deliver based on the current reviews. Extinction currently has an average Metascore of 50/100 composed of 1 positive, 14 mixed, and 9 negative feedbacks from 24 critics, on the user's side, the game has an average score of 1.4/10 made up of 1 positive, 1 mixed, and 22 negative feedbacks from 24 users.
"Play one hour of it and you've basically done a bit of everything it has to offer; then it's rinse and repeat for as long as you can bear to stick with it. It's a frail and monotonous game destined for the bargain bin." Gamespot 4/10
It seems that one of Extinction's most notable features include repetitiveness in its missions, poor narrative, poor combat, and the ability to promote boredom in record time. All in All, Extinction is considered by the critics as a half-baked game, incorporating Iron Galaxy's fighting game experience to an open world game showed brilliance, however, the game's faults are far too many for it to shine.
