^^ This is more or less my take on the game and I'm someone that typically doesn't go for isometric games.
I like it. $24 out of pocket thanks to GMG made it even more of a "why the hell not" decision. I have an RTX 3080 and I'm here to tell you this thing is a demanding son of a gun. I dropped from 4k down to 1440P and it was a night and day difference in terms of how hard the GPU was working and how much heat it was putting out so be warned there are some "optimization refinements" that likely need to happen here. Update your drivers first and foremost if you haven't already.
DX12 has too many stability issues at present. Don't bother. DLSS at balanced helps. Drop shadows to high. Medium is worthless. Low is for serious hardware challenges. Vsync...it's blasphemy but you might have to use it. Use your best judgment.
I agree with this reviewer and others that it probably needed just a little more work to really put some things over the top. As it stands I can see 1-2 nice patches having that effect.
At this price point, there is a lot that's easily forgivable and there is a lot this game does that frankly shows up games that cost twice as much. There is plenty of shooting but it isn't just a mindless shooter. Not at all.
I'm running at 3440x1440 on a lowly 3060 12GB version, with DLSS on Quality, in DX-12 with VSync off (adaptive enabled on my monitor/driver). So far it's smooth as silk, and no issues to speak of. Granted I've only played it for maybe an hour or two, but the experience so far has been flawless. I haven't updated my drivers in maybe three weeks or so, (not sure which version I'm on) but maybe there's something in that. It's also a brand new, clean build (the PC) so maybe that's part of it as well. The only things installed are Steam, Doom Eternal, this, and a few shootemups. I'm running the Steam version if that makes any difference.
I agree completely that it's not a mindless shooter. It's simplistic, but not mindless. There is plenty of action, a bit of strategy, and light RPG elements. It's really good for the style of game they went for. I'm impressed, and the price is great!
It's kind of got Syndicate-isms, but with full action/twin-stick control. That's excellent in my view.
