There are few things in this world that allow people worldwide to connect at a human level, and learn from each other's cultures, more than entertainment. Cinema can show us humanity wherever it is filmed, and games can teach us about the...

If you happen to be looking for the next big hit with fighting styles similar to God of War with some Prince of Persia thrown in then I suggest you keep searching because Garshasp: The Monster Slayer is not that game. The story is about Garshasp a...

Published June 14th 2011. Written by Dominic Sheard. The best independent games tend to be associated with simple, refreshing or unique gameplay mechanics or design, while normally restricted in scope. Dead Mage Studio on the other hand has gone for...

There's a problem with Garshasp: The Monster Slayer. To be fair, there are several problems, but the fundamental one is this - I want to like it. And you will too.Dead Mage Inc. have released, at best, an average game. At best. But you have to give...

An Indie title that may have some production issues here and there (Camera angles seem to even plague the small game developers), but for an indie title and a short game play, it is worth a bit of a romp to get away from it all. Garshasp: The Monster...

Garshasp wants to be God of War, but has less of everything that makes the series cool. It's fun, but is too low budget to compete with the other epic games in the genre. The story is where the game had an advantage, but unfortunately it drops the...

Garshasp the Monster Slayer is rubbish. Actually, that’s not entirely fair, it’s probably just not very good. Or perhaps it’s mediocre. It depends on how forgiving you’re willing to be, you see. It’s quite possible to veer...

Any time a video game is hugely successful, you can expect to see some clones. God of War has been no exception, with Dante's Inferno being the most well-known ripoff. Thanks to this deluge of God of War-style games, pretty much everyone is familiar...

International Review By Gamereactor on 50

Hvor meget ved du om persisk mytologi? Svaret er nok meget lidt. Ideen med at basere et spil på antikke persiske fortællinger om godt og ondt er et friskt pust i spilindustrien, der som regel gennemtygger de samme trætte præmisser...

Im Großen und Ganzen lässt sich sagen, dass in ““ zu wenig Story, eine schlechte Kamera-Positionierung sowie langweilige Kämpfe kaum Spielspaß erzeugen. Mittelmäßige Grafik, welche aus der damaligen Zeit kommen...

Das Hack ‚n‘ Slay-Genre ist ein auf dem PC schwer Vernachlässigtes. Sträflicherweise, denn das muntere Monster-Verkloppen macht am Rechner mindestens genauso viel Spaß wie auf der Konsole. Trotzdem lassen sich nennenswerte...

International Review By Skillpoint on 20

Garshasp The Monster Slayer är ett actionäventyr från det något slutna landet Iran. Härkomsten bör ses som en ögonbrynshöjare och av den anledningen förtjänar spelet uppmärksamhet. Utvecklaren, Dead...
