IMMORTALS OF AVEUM IS NOT AT ALL WHAT I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE, BUT THAT ISN’T ENTIRELY A BAD THING
After all, we are looking at a “single-player, first-person, magic shooter.” Gotta shoot something, magic it is!
What I didn’t like, however, was the way you recharge your Fury Spells, which are your more powerful special attacks. I had access to Shatter, which essentially pulls rocks from the ground, forming walls, breaking shields, and knocking enemies.
In other games, this would fill up based on combat, but instead, it’s more like needing to use potions like with health, etc. I’m unsure how it will play out, depending on how often you can find them on the broader game.
THERE ARE INCONSISTENCIES WITH MY PREVIEW BUILD, BUT THE POTENTIAL IS THERE
I spent some time listening to my playthrough before writing this, and multiple times I mention General Kirkan, how powerful she is, and how great Gina Torres handles the role.
