The Surge - Reviews, Prices, Specs and Alternatives
The Dark Souls franchise has brought punishing but satisfying gameplay in recent years. This series has also given birth to a menagerie of clones out there that try hard fut pale in comparison. The Surge brings elements that made Dark Souls great and adds its own original mechanics to make an equally good gaming experience.
The story and setting is given to you in bare - bones detail. It will be up to you to forge your path and figure things out for yourself. The constant barrage of enemies trying to kill you will make that difficult though. However being the bad-ass that you are, you have more than a few tools at your disposal: your enemies gear.
The Surge introduces a dismemberment system wherein you will be able to selectively target body parts you would like to acquire from an enemy, then finish them off and pick up the part for yourself. The massive array of weapons and armor coupled with complete customization options will ensure your character is unique and truly will reflect your play style.
Before dismissing this game as just another Souls clone, expect that it kind of is. But the additional gameplay mechanics, and different theme make this a strong game that stand on its own very well. Definitely worth the price.
