An interesting FPP mix of Dark Souls with Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. That's Elderborn – a unique hack'n'slash, in which we raze hordes of enemies using all kinds of blades. In the game, we play as a character who defends a fantasy land from the hordes of the mysterious Golden Army. We traverse dungeons, ruins and open spaces, all dominated by somewhat gloomy, ominous visual style.
Elderborn offers extremely dynamic close battles, exclusively with melee weapons. It is also important to use dodges and blocks and the ability to recognize the weaknesses of opponents. These, in turn, present a fairly wide spectrum of enemies to kill, ranging from ordinary bandits, through scorpions, to zombies and other creatures. The somewhat outdated graphics are compensated by a dynamic heavy-metal soundtrack, perfectly matched to the atmosphere of the whole thing.
