    I wonder what the playtime will be for that.
    Their previous games were pretty short.

    Lol, who is the speaker? :lol:
    The art direction is pretty good indeed, as usual...

    ... But the gameplay seems just "meh".

    They ruined perfectly good trailer with this ridiculous voice. Nevertheless, I already bought it and I’m waiting anxiously, I really dig their games.

    Gameplay-wise, will Pyre be similar to Banner Saga ? It won't be as usual as party-based RPGs we know.

    Combat system looks similar to Transistor in a sense.

    YWhy not? It's realtime tactical action combat with phases where you control single character and aim you abilities / dodge enemy abilities (with cooldowns), not a turnbased party combat like in banner saga.

    Oh, I meant general gameplay not combat particulary. You traverse along the world and then the game loads combat area or arena to fight ?
    When fight is over, you go on another journey along the world.
    I meant Banner saga's general gameplay in this way.
    You're not walking around the areas like in Fallout.

    The game is party-based apparently.

    It's kind of jarring to see the difference in opinions between reviews.

    PCGamer gave it a low score, does that mean it's actually good, or PCGamer copying reviewers who actually know what they're talking about???

    Is this a real game or just more hipster shit with very rpg light elements and little game for the dumb and hip like their other two games?

    That PC Gamer review is so odd. He basically just didn't like the game because it wasn't his thing and then bends backwards to justify himself.

    That is what a lot of game reviews boil down to.
