Immortals Fenyx is narrated by the titan Prometheus and the king of the Gods, Zeus, with the intention of giving a unique perspective on this legend. The main objective is to defeat Typhon, the deadliest Titan in Greek mythology and as you progress you'll be able to customise your character, gain new weapons and blessings from the god for restoring order to regions of the world.
The world you play in is both large and varied. Each region is designed for a specific Greek gods. Almost everything is climbable, including cliffs and massive mountains. Dotted throughout the landscape are glowing red Tartaros Rifts that offer otherworldly dungeons to solve.
When you encounter monsters you must fight them with the quick, versatile, and acrobatic battle play. Light sword attacks can inflict quick flurries of damage, heavy axe attacks can break through shields, and a well-aimed arrow shot can do immense damage to unsuspecting enemies.
The overall result is a game that offers an expansive world to explore, story to embark on and countless puzzles to solve.
In the US, ESRB state: Players explore mythologically themed environments, perform quests, and battle fantastical creatures (e.g., harpies, gorgons, cyclops, demons). Players use hammers, swords, arrows, and elemental abilities (e.g., fire, ice) to defeat enemies in close-quarters combat. Fighting can be frenetic, highlighted by impact sounds, screen-shaking and slow-motion effects. Enemies generally burst into particles or get blown back a great distance when defeated. The game contains some innuendo and suggestive humor in the dialogue (e.g., “'…storm his cave, and defile his manhood”; “…only finding peace with horses. Laying with horses”; "Not even if you were…having an orgy on a Pegasos made of rainbows"; “Clearly murder and incest did not make that very short list.”). The word “a*shole” appears in the dialogue.
10+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. The character development, exciting open world and fantastical creatures make this a good alternative to Assassin's Creed style games. Young players who loved Skylanders will happily graduate to this here.
