Elex II, eh? The sequel to 2017's incredibly rough but somewhat fun Elex is set to release on the 1st March — and it's promising a better combat system, as you can see in this new trailer. Indeed, combat was one of the original Elex's biggest issues — an often janky mess that simply didn't feel good to play around with. Admittedly, the action still looks a bit... stunted in the video, but we're holding out hope.
There are a lot of things that Elex II needs to improve upon if it wants to widen the property's audience. With the game out in just a couple of months, let us know if Elex II is on your radar in the comments section below.
They promised improved combat? Well there goes my bet! I was sure they were going to promise worse combat 😡
I actually grabbed the first one for a few bucks a couple months back because I always liked the idea of the different styles blending together. Have yet to start it, but this is legit on my radar. Sometimes I thoroughly enjoy a B-tier title if only because they tend to try different things and push boundaries more than standard AAA titles do.
Good game but God it's difficult
@bremkat35 first one obv lol
I've played quite a bit of the first one. Its definitely got something going for it in terms of just having such a wide scope and not rail roading you ever. The caveat to that benefit is that it can feel quite aimless (and difficult!) at times and the stunted voice acting does not help with immersion. I don't need Oscar worthy voice acting but listening to and looking at what basically amounts to an animatronic mannequin for hours on end can be grating.
That said i will probably end picking it up on sale later this year
I loved Elex so I’m def getting this day one
I have always looked at the first one but the videos of it just look like it's terrible to play. Even in this, it looks like the combat is from the PS2 maybe PS3 era from it's generous hit boxes and in some instances it looks like the weapon doesn't even contact the enemy.
I can get past bad gameplay for good story but with how many top tier stories are coming out this year I don't think I will have time for it. Maybe when it hits plus or plus+ 😜
I could never get over the originals brazen use of the Halo title font for its box art.
@MFTWrecks You ever played NieR Automata?
@Choppaz Yup! Loved it!
