Lost Epic Review (PlayStation 5)

For our Lost Epic Review, we play this  2D side-scrolling action RPG about a war between gods and humanity. The player becomes the deity-defying knight, God Slayer, and explores the world known as Sanctum to bring the Pantheon of Six to their knees.

Lost Epic Review Pros:

  • Anime-style graphics.
  • 3.12GB download size.
  • Platinum trophy.
  • ARPG gameplay.
  • Opening tutorial section with ongoing pop-ups.
  • Two difficulties.
  • Four save slots and a fifth online backup save.
  • Character creator – 17 avatars to choose from, and 10 voices.
  • 2D perspective.
  • Hack and slash combat with divine attacks, combos, and air juggling.
  • Decent voicework.
  • The map fills in as you play and is represented like a Metroidvania (boxes with connecting doors).
  • The combat is fast, fluid, and open to interpretation.
  • Load out – you can have two and swap between them with a button press.
  • Combat encounters can trigger where you usually face a small wave of enemies, and afterward, you get a breakdown of performance and rewards.
  • Gather materials from the World.
  • On-screen pop-ups of damage numbers, healing, and if you do critical or back attacks.
  • Counter attacks with divine attacks.
  • Journal keeps track of progress, inventory, the map, bestiary, etc.
  • Checkpoints throughout.
  • Big boss encounters.
  • Support box – found in-game and these will automatically replenish all equipped potions and items for you.

  • Tidings – a book that contains 20 pages of skill trees to unlock abilities and increase stats, etc. You get a skill point for every level you go up from the prayer statue.
  • The game encourages you to explore the areas before fighting the boss. Handy that the boss room is highlighted straight away.
  • Craft and grow potions/herbs/items etc.
  • Soulslike death system. Drop everything on death and you get one life to get back to your Corpse and collect
  • Stamina system in play for attacks, dodging, and jumping.
  • Slow-motion kills on combos.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
