Extinction Review

Extinction PS4 Review
Cornball Ogres - 1.6/5
Developed by Iron Galaxy and published by Maximum Games, Extinction is an action adventure game that sees you assume the role of a warrior named Avil as he fights interdimensional 150-foot tall monsters.
Known as “one of the world’s last defenders” one would think to play as Avil as he defends humanity against these massive brutes would invoke some excitement. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case, and not only is Extinction void of any real zest, it isn’t even remotely enjoyable. Plus, since Extinction is currently retailing at a mind-boggling $99.95, the same price as a Triple-A title; somebody, somewhere, is taking the piss.

As one of the shittest games, I’ve played, ever, surprisingly, Extinction’s premise is quite good. As Avil, you are one of the world’s last Sentinels defending humankind against giant ogres named Ravenii. These bloodthirsty brutes are comparable in size to several of the giants in Shadow of the Colossus and require a similar strategy to defeat. By climbing each creature and breaking their armour and stabbing at their limbs, each beast eventually weakens which lets you decapitate them as they fall to the ground faster than a pissed up Shrek.
