Immortal Fenyx Review - King Gaming Review

Immortals is an action- adventure game played from a third-person-perspective . At the beginning of the game, players can customize the gender, voice, and the appearances of Fenyx using Aphrodite’s Beauty Chair. The game is set in a large open world, consisting of seven distinct regions inspired by the Greek Gods. The player character is accompanied by a companion bird named Phosphor, which can identify locations of interest on the map. Fenyx can traverse the world quickly through climbing cliffs, riding on a mount, and flying using the wings of daedlus. The full open world will be accessible from the start of the game. As players explore the world, they would encounter rifts which would teleport them to the Vaults of Tartaros, which are a series of platforming challenges that require players to utilize both Fenyx's combat and traversal abilities. Players can also complete various side-objectives and optional puzzles.

   To most people and our team at King Gaming this game is somewhat similar to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Ubisoft’s own Assassin’s Creed franchise, and that’s appropriate because it borrows heavily from both. Over the course of the game, You'll see how the puzzles and the loot you need to find to enhance Fenyx will earn powers that have an uncanny resemblance to some we’ve seen. Lifting boxes from a distance and holding them overhead while he or she  leaping sideways while firing an arrow in slow motion at distant targets.

Much like Breath of the Wild, stamina is life in this game. Everything you do costs stamina. Special attacks, running, lifting blocks, and climbing soaks your stamina like a sponge, and combining those things only serves to speed that up. To build more stamina, you’ll need a very special object that can only be found in the Vaults of Tartaros. These vaults are very similar to Shrines in Breath of the Wild. Taking things to the next level, however, there are a ton of fresh mechanics in these vaults that can transform some of your attack powers into elements. There are a total of 69 Vaults of Tartaros in the game.

 Upgrading your health comes from collecting Ambrosia — the mythical food of the Gods that confers long life and health to anyone who consumes it. These are scattered all around the world, usually in hard to reach places. Upgrading your weapons comes in the form of Electrum from defeating enemies and finding hidden chests. You’ll also need a secondary resource that’s a little harder to come by, including gems you get from chopping down specific trees, or crystals that again are tucked away in hard to reach places. There are also a metric ton of cosmetic skins for your equipment that the game lets you mix and match at will. No longer do you have to choose between looking cool and the best gear.

There are a tremendous amount of puzzles out in the world. Sometimes it’s lighting a fire using a guided arrow, moving blocks around onto weighted platforms. Others have you creating mosaics by sliding tiles, strumming the strings on a giant lyre, taking down legendary monsters, killing a bunch of foes guarding chests, or a combination of any or all of these. 

Immortals: Fenyx Rising is an amazing game that wont put you into boredom. These platforming puzzles, logic brain teasers, or tough boss fights didn’t wear out their welcome after more than 30 hours of gameplay. Bravo to the team at Ubisoft for taking a chance — Immortals Fenyx Rising is simply amazing and a wonderful surprise. So be sure to get your copy at
