PCA budding development team--let's call them ACE Team--cracked open a long sealed vault. Covered from head to toe in myriad spider webs, caked dust and grime, wrapped in a holey blanket of leather and denim, lay a long forgotten cadaver: the...

Ten minutes into Zeno Clash Ultimate Edition, I was sitting there flabbergasted and open-mouthed. My girlfriend was watching me play, and when I turned around to look at her, she had the same incredulous look on her face. We both shared the same...

Over the course of many months, we front page writers have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Zeno Clash, a cross-genre first-person game by Chilean developer ACE Team. Whenever new assets like screens or related videos popped up, we made sure to...

This is without a doubt the most unique game I have played this year. Everything from the characters to the world to the gameplay is a breath of fresh air the likes of which I haven’t experienced in a couple of years. Yes, it’s short, but...

While the product of an independent, Chilean developer might fail to grab the interest of the casual gamer, Zeno Clash is easily one of the most impressive independent titles to come along in recent days. There are a few things that become instantly...

Zeno Clash is honestly imaginative, a fact wonderfully symbolized by a screenshot of an anthropomorphic rat woman with four barely-obscured breasts. In context it’s not funny or bawdy, but befitting of a fantastic, original and artful world....

This is not going to be for everyone, only the fans who love fantasy action games involving mutant creatures hunting down your character who killed the familys Mom/Dad monster through a punk-inspired wasteland while dragging your girlfriend in...

Coupled with ceaselessly beguiling scenery and an unusually stirring score, it’s very difficult not to want to see Zeno Clash through to its earth-shattering conclusion. 8.2/10Print this pageUser reviews (0)Share this pageNoticed something wrong?...

Edwin Millheim7.5Steam Distributed Strangeness and rather exotic and often disturbing situations almost seem the norm for this action first person adventure fight game. The environments and characters and creatures all seem to have stepped out of...

Zeno Clash is surreal and relentlessly bizarre, but sheer weirdness takes this first-person brawler only so far....

Zeno Clash is a first person hand to hand combat title with occasional but lacklustre weapon use; it features arena style fights in smallish maps with an unusual story and different art style. You play as Ghat, a humanoid character who is on the run...

Zeno Clash is just £14.99 to download from Steam and represents superb value for money despite its relatively short gameplay time of approximately 6 hours. It’s a crime that there’s no demo currently available because a lot of people...

For years now, weve heard Valve Software talk about the benefits of bringing the Steam platform and the Source engine to independent developers, allowing them to fully integrate the latest features theyve implemented - like achievements, modding...

Its always dangerous for developers to embrace the weird because its so completely different that it can alienate people. Yet, every now and then weirdness can pay off admirably. Zeno Clash, an independent first-person action game from Chilean...

The wait is finally over! Zeno Clash is out today, and if what I’ve heard in IRC and the forums is any indication, this game is hotly anticipated. It first entered the world as an obscure and bizarre trailer that confused all who saw it, but over...

Treading far off the beaten path of traditional game themes and lighthearted design concepts that are easily digested by mainstream audiences sometimes poses too much of a risk for major publishers to take. This is why many gamers who've grown bored...

This is where I usually end up talking about how I didn’t expect such quality from an indie game like this and that I am blown away by my expectations that Zeno Clash surpassed, but honestly? I had no idea what to expect of this game. Sure, I knew...

Zeno Clash is unlike any other first-person game. Its not a shooter for starters - although there is a smattering of gunplay - instead focusing on hand-to-hand combat. Dropped into the middle of the action, you play Ghat, a man on the run from his...
