Who Has Time for This?

The Good

  • The vast open world is visually stunning and immersive, with a variety of environments to explore.

  • The combat system is complex and deep, but can be rewarding for those who enjoy the challenge and the grind for rare gear.

  • The game has a strong focus on lore and storytelling, with memorable characters and a well-crafted world.

    The Bad

  • Elden Ring is incredibly difficult, with even the simplest encounters proving to be a challenge for many players. This high level of difficulty may be off-putting for those who are not familiar with the genre.

  • The open world is often empty and repetitive, with little to do outside of combat. The lack of content can make the game feel like a chore rather than an enjoyable experience.

  • The story can be convoluted and confusing, making it difficult for me to become invested in the game's narrative.

  • The lack of fast travel options can make traversing the world a tedious and time-consuming experience.

  • The game can be overly reliant on trial-and-error, with little indication or guidance on how to progress or overcome challenges.

  • The game's boss battles can be unfair and imbalanced, with some requiring precise timing and execution that feels more like luck than skill.

    The Bottom Line
    Despite its beautiful visuals and impressive combat system, Elden Ring falls short of expectations. Its extreme difficulty and lack of content make it a frustrating experience. The convoluted story also fails to provide a compelling reason to continue playing. Overall, I cannot recommend Elden Ring to anyone but the most dedicated fans of the Soulsborne genre. I was hoping this would be "the one" to better convince me that there might be something more to the Soulsborne genre. Unfortunately, it did not.

Really Artistic and Challenging Game

The Good
There are so many challenges on the way to becoming Elden Lord. Boss monsters throughout must be fought thoughtfully and require practice, but the reward is worth it. Wild enemies with such interesting models that are both creepy and fantastic. A lore that is vague and yet intriguing, which gives life to the world and its sad, strange denizens. I played the game for a year, never getting bored.

The Bad
The Crucible Knight, Bell Bearing Hunter, and Virgin Abductors will beat you down.

The Bottom Line
What an amazing place to explore and fight in! So much to discover and little surprises everwhere.

excelente

The Good
o mundo aberto desse jogo é simplesmente marilhoso, e por ser um souls like é ainda mais cativante

The Bad
uma hora começa a se repetir demais os bosses em dungeons, mas de certa forma seria normal pra um jogo tão gigante

The Bottom Line
jogaria de novo quantas vezes fossem necessárias pra entender tudo, vou comprar um ps5 pra platinar tudo
