Echoes is an action-strategy game. It's set in an extensive universe on a torn Earth almost three-hundred years in the future. It joins the famous real-time strategy genre with many elements from the third person shooter genre, in a side-scrolling environment.

Please note this game is loaded with action, and may load on your cpu. If you have any slow frame rates try to lower the graphic settings. Also note Echoes is a heavy story-teller, with scenes and dialogues. If you're in only for the action, there's always a skip button in the corner.

Nice game

While there were a bit too many cutscenes (I could have just watched this as a movie) what matters is that there was really a lot of work put into this. The graphics are pretty good and the voice acting is great. It is a new kind of game for me to play with and it is certainly hard to get used to. Nonetheless, you guys all came together to really create a world of your own. While not the most original of ideas, it uses its gameplay well to entertain the player. It is rather fun to go around and select people like that.

While I find the dialog long, tedious and ended up skiping through most of it, the battle mechanics, voice acting and graphics were good enough to keep me entertained while acquiring the medals that is until I was on survival mode and the game lagged making me play for like 40 minutes misleading me into believing I beat my record whilst the result was only 18 odd minutes

one frikin' detail..

everything's fine (shoot, weapons and action), but..
YOU CAN'T AVOID ENEMY FIRE
no evasive actions, or a single jump, or just move up
just hold the enemy fire and shoot like a stupid
everything else is okay (except with the dialogues, they take too long to change.
would be okay if there were a button that could advance to the next dialogue, instead to wait)
