Our reviewer Ian has taken a closer look at the new “Extinction” from Maximum Games.
Thankfully, the game plays better than the story is told. Hero Avil is light and nimble, and has an impressive array of dash and jump moves that make traversing the maps generally easy. You have a grapple, and occasionally, you can find yourself suddenly flying off backwards or at an angle to your destination, which is frustrating. Combat with the smaller monsters, Jackals, is straightforward, but generally satisfying, with hack-and-slash combos using the X button and various timings.
