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.

Utter awesomeness...

I'm gonna have a hard time waiting for the next act. The graphics are amazing, the storyline is catchy, the characters are unique, and the combination of Shooter and Defense is reliable... But those are only words.

Not "great", "wow", or "very good"

The game is solid, there is no problem when the technical aspect pf this game. But the problem lies in the game play. There is little strategy involved with combat. All you do is stand in one spot incapable of vertical movement. so there is no dodging, or avoiding bullets.

The story is a snooze, I know i dont want to sit around and sift through brick after brick of pointless chatter. Its not even like its interesting to read, half the screen is filled with box after box of dry chatter that just keeps coming and coming! God its so frustrating to have half the screen filled with this crap. Can I just get back to the vanilla flavored action?

The graphics where nothing to be admired, the super small figures running back and forth shooting smaller specs of light at each other is a strain on the eyes and makes the player really regret even clicking on this game. the was no life the the picture boxes on the dislodge bricks, they where all middle school art class caliber anime renderings.

Its not all negative though, i thought the strategy part was fun, but again there is no point to it really when you only have two directions to move. No troop flanking, or something of that sort, just brute force.

I am not going to spent any more time on this, and it frustrates me to see these other reviews saying that this game is so amazing and a master piece when it no where neat either! It is simply a game and that is its only redeeming quality, come on citizens of new groudns have some damn scruples.

Very good

I can tell this was a very well made and thought out game. You guys deserve a 10.
The graphics were nice, and game play was epic, the strategy involved was nice.
I had one issue though, the cut-scene near the end after diabolus's defeat one of the characters didn't use a walk animation, but i'm sure that was nothing to worry about. Amazing storyline btw i hope to see this in many more chapters, good luck!
