    Unfortunately this game is a disapointment

    This could have been quite good if not for its severe drawbacks: bleak and unpolished textures and models and outdated graphics in general repetive enemies slow action, and quite repetitive no active pause, which cou... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Etrom: The Astral Essence

  • Review Score:3.1

    The story and setting are different. That's good. But it's not worth this aggravation.

    I only played the demo of this, but judging by GameSpot's review, the full version isn't any more playable. I really wanted to find a way to enjoy this game, because the demo hinted at a new and different setting and st... Read Full Review

    This game drives me aggressively insane...

    When I read the reviews of other people here I felt a bit disappointed because I had just got my hands on the game and I was really eager to play. Despite the critics I played it for a while (read: I played it 4 times fr... Read Full Review

    disappointing

    i had quite a hopes for this, but they never come true. the graphics is like from a medicore year 2000 game, allowing max 1024x768. no antialiasing control, and when i changed the global profile to x4 antialiasing, it w... Read Full Review

    A game that looks like it was produced in a coffee break.

    I really lounged for a RPG and Etrom seemed to be the right choice to satisfy my desire. The story. You are a soldier who wondered into a dark cave and found "the astral essence". Afterwards you become a super-hero ou... Read Full Review

    Fascinating. This is the first words I can think of after playing “Etrom – The Astral Essence”.

    “I was a man, a soldier...”...These words give start to a deep and obscure 3D Action-RPG. We are in 476 A.H.E.F. (After Human Empire Foundation): a future time-and-space era, parallel to ours. Created by mystic events, ... Read Full Review

    Sux to the bone...

    Incredible. One of the worst RPG-s I played in last month. I mean come on. Even the first animation is soooo boring and the voice of a guy ? Geeezz... I skiped it right away. Now about the game. Camera is really bad ... Read Full Review

    A Good game with an addictive storyline.

    Etrom is a good game with an addictive storyline and a deep and detailed techno-fantasy background. This is a thinking person's adventure who really feels like getting enveloped into a title. The aim of this game i... Read Full Review

    As Etrom and Silverfall shows us, Technology and Hack n Slash RPG elements don't mix.

    I thought I would check out Etrom due to the lack of RPG I have had in my life. My last new RPG game, Silverfall, didn't quench my thirst and only left me dissapointed. Etrom sets you in the future as a crazy scientis... Read Full Review
