    First reviews say it's mediocre with archaic mechanics, terrible combat and plethora of bugs.

    I have it pre ordered only because I love the gothic and risen games. This looks a lot deeper then most games recently.

    It didn't look that impressive to me to be honest. Then again, i'm judging a book by its cover.

    Sounds like a diamond in the rough that needs time to get its shit together. I'm going to put this one on the back burner and let it simmer for a few months.

    You say you never compromise

    He's not selling any alibis
    As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
    And say "Do you want to make a deal?"

    I found it very rough too, though weirdly compelling...enough to give it a 7 despite everything. There's really a fun game there for people who like open world, no hand-holding and unique combat. Turn the sound off and just read the quests (voice acting is abysmal) and try to ignore visual glitches (most seen in dialog convos with NPCs) and you'll find a game that grabs you despite your wanting to chuck it all in at first. Stick with it.

    That said, at $50, I'm just not sure it's worth it -- yet. I think that with time and patching, ELEX could end up being something pretty cool for people of a certain sort. It's not for everyone, but it should find its niche.

    Yeah I loved Gothic back in the day.

    And I have zero problems with scifi/fantasy convergence... heck Terry Brooks did it decades ago with Shannara and even Bethesda is currently toying with the idea of franchise convergence where Fallout is actually ancient history of the Elder Scrolls universe (sort of gives a little bit of extra oomph to the Dwemer mystery :) )

    This thing has potential but sounds like several systems need a few passes.

    I read your review through a link from Metacritic... it pays to be quick off the mark with reviews to get visibility. Good on you, Gamespace has arrived!  :)

    I used to enjoy everything about Fallen Earth, except for the combat. Judging by the videos for Elex, I'm wondering if there is anything other than quests and combat. Is there any type of crafting? Can you build a settlement? I'm guessing theres a multi-layered faction war going on, but the video doesn't really explain much about the game.

    I'll keep an eye on this one.  Maybe wait for a steam sale.  $50 is too much for this unpolished game.

    It looks pretty awesome and its on my wishlist. From the sounds of it, its pretty much an early access game but I don't see anywhere that says it. For 50 dollars, that is too expensive for an early access game. But if its actually a full release, I think that is a mistake...

    It looks great, but from the reviews/videos and the review on gamespace...sure a lot of lack of polish and problems for a 50 dollar full release game...or is it early access and I'm missing it?

    I honestly want this game to be in early access because it honestly has a lot of potential and could be a lot better if given more time. I feel like they are kind of shooting themselves in the foot by not taking a 20$ buy in to EA then release in about a year with more content and then maybe try for even 60 on release.
