A catastrophic event has knocked you out during the first day on the job… you wake up equipped with a heavy-grade exoskeleton, in a destroyed section of the complex. Robots gone haywire, insane augmented co-workers and rogue AI - everything wants you dead.

Defy deadly enemies and huge bosses in tight, visceral melee combat. Target and slice specific limbs off your foes, with a next-gen loot system where you loot what you dismember. Equip, upgrade and craft new weapons and armors sliced from enemies, and make yourself stronger through a fresh take on leveling-up.

    The Surge reviews and comments

    Translated by
    Microsoft from Deutsch
    First off in front, "The Surge" is MegaGeil!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, not exactly very meaningful, so I try to explain it and do so without this constant and annoying comparison with Dark Souls. (Of course I too have to compare) Don't Get me wrong, I've played through Demons Souls, all three Dark Souls Parts and Bloodborne and spent a great many Hours in those Games and can only say I love those Games ungicularly. It is clear that The Surge is logically compared to Dark Souls, because it uses fundamentally the same Game Mechanics as Lords of the Fallen has already done (From the same Developer). By comparison you will always notice Points that you liked better in Dark Souls, but hey You forget one and at that-that's not Dark Souls, this is The Surge and so wants this Game to be understood as well. It's a great Homage to the Dark Souls role model and doesn't reinvent the genre, but just as The Surge does, with the grand post-apocalyptic Atmosphere, the intense and heavy Fights, the nested level architecture, the great graphics and the fresh Ideas in The Genre (Implants, Exoskeleton, finishing Moves, Drones companions) Makes it just feel Good and at least motivates me to Keep Playing. Maybe it's just down to me as well and I'm a bit old-fashioned, but this Game just makes me feel good. The Animations are not at all hairy, as some claim here, but very supple (motion capture). The Hit boxes are very accurate. The Fight is fast and dynamic (more like Bloodborne), even with heavy Weapons (E.g. Titan Hammer) and heavy Armor (E.g. Rhino), the Dodge is still quite brisk. The Fights are demanding and the Opponents do a Lot of Damage, but real Souls Veterans should actually know this. It is true that by one or two Hits by the Opponent you bless the Temporal, but that's how it has to be, this is a Hardcore game and for some it's too hard and even too easy for others, because as with Dark Souls you can defeat the Opponents relatively easily, If you know their Movement pattern. So it is with Souls, but with The Surge that's Suddenly unfair and a Minus Point. I don't understand....? Dear Souls Veterans. Have You forgotten how many times You have died at the Beginning of your first Soul Adventure, until You understood the Basic Mechanics and then mowed the Enemies around in rows. Have You forgotten how many times You have cursed and preferred to have thrown out this "unfair" game to the Window? But then came that moment when the Tide turned and you got better-and why? .... Well, because You stayed tuned, because You fought and didn't give up. So it is with The Surge, so give Yourself a twist and dive into the Game to compare a WITHOUT IT SOULS AND You will have a Lot of Fun with the Part as I have it. It has to be said, in fairness, that the Setting is not For everyone and I think this is where the Problem lies. Many Players have hoped for a Dark Souls in the Sci FI Setting without any Innovations. Then it would have poured in: "Öhhh, that's just Dark Souls in the Future, fully copied." Yes, it would have been the same, but The Surge is a standalone, great Game that exudes all its own Charm at all Corners and Edges and I think that's good;-) With me it took about 2-3 Hours of Play until I had filled myself in there, but now I like the Game Mega Very much. The Atmosphere in the gloomy Factory Halls or in the Outdoor Areas is really great and intense. The Fights provide a fulfilling Feeling when you really disassemble the Enemies and knock Off Body parts to get to the Armor. You can switch between all Weapons and change your Style of play so many times, which is very varied. You can line up combos, which can also change due to the targeted Part of the body. The Root is not overly massive, but rather useful. Scrap metal replaces souls. The MediBay Station is the Beacon and Shortcuts in the Level are also available. If you think of The Surge As a standalone game, you realize that Deck13 has improved and optimized a lot in Terms of its Predecessor (Lords of the Fallen). The Surge focuses its Game Pass formula on the Fights, Collecting scrap metal, Armor And weapons, and the great Areas with the nested Level architecture. All in all, all this seems very round and well thought out and for that you just have to give this Game a Thumbs up. Thank you Deck13 for this great Game and a lot of Success going forward. Think About whether The Surge Is also Something for You and give the Game a Chance:-)
