The soundtrack is alright and the voice acting is solid. The bleeps and bloops, electronic barking and other synthesised sounds emitted by Joule's Corebot buddies are also charming.
Not the best looking game of its kind, ReCore can be visually inconsistent. Some of its interiors are impressive, but you'll soon grow weary of the endless stretches of desert sand. You'll probably notice the occasional bit of texture pop-in too.
Good, clean, wholesome fun with some robust shooting and platform mechanics, alongside a neat twist in Joule's Corebot compadres. Some platforming bits are taxing and certain combat encounters can prove overwhelming, but this is mostly good stuff.
ReCore is a big game with some smart game mechanics. However, its presentation isn't great and the loading times give even something like The Witcher 3 a run for its money. Dig in for a lot of collectibles and repeat playthroughs of dungeons to get the most out of it.
A decent list with a good range of tasks to complete. You're rewarded for carrying out the basics and then given more Gamerscore for collectibles and completion. Some are a but grindy, but there's good spread overall. A fine list.
