It starts like a normal adventure game but suddenly turns into a terrible souls clone. Animations and the button responses are not good either. You activate pillars as a bonfire but if you die, game resets your some previously found story content. Fighting with a gorilla like alien creature is cheesy enough yet the same form strikes you as a boss with a big health bar. Everything in this game is a poor iteration of what you seen before. Most enemies are suddenly appearing from the underground and this a very cheap trick to trap gamers just for the sake of making it difficult. I do not recommend this game.

it's a pretty decent 7/10, PS360 style linear action shooter. no big original ideas, just a Games You Probably Like potpourri with hints of control, horizon, returnal, souls, and an emphasis on elemental combos and environmental hazards to keep things a little more interesting than the basic "shoot the glowing weakspot" which forms the basis of most major encounters.

primary frustration is that you're expected to repeatedly switch weapons mid-combat, but it's mapped to the most inconvenient input - you're constantly moving your thumb from the left stick to the d-pad and back and it just feels clumsy.

story is some whatever sci-fi AI mumbo jumbo. it probably would have worn out its welcome were it a bit longer, but at a breezy 5-6 hours it made for a nice dumb palate cleanser.

Scars Above hat mich an manchen Stellen echt gefordert, eine nette Sci-Fi-Story erzählt und mich trotz technischer Schönheitsfehler bis zum Ende gut bei Laune gehalten.

It’s a shame nobody played this, it’s great. Short and sweet, great combat and mechanics. The boss fights are challenging and creative, two of them I would enter in my all time favorites.

something like returnal, but more budget level.

Scars above é um título de muitas qualidades, uma história sci-fi muito interessante, uma dificuldade bem escalada, personagens bem desenvolvidos. O único defeito são algumas modelagens de personagens, que parecem bastante defasados, mas considerando que é um estúdio pequeno, passa batido. Recomendado.
