Launch Review: Babylon’s Fall is a dull and cynical service game

Disclaimer: This is a launch review of a large service game that is likely to receive significant post-launch content. As such the game experience is likely to evolve as the game’s developer adds and changes its systems over the following months and years. This review is accurate as of the launch window.

There is no one that we would recommend Babylon’s Fall to. It’s visually dated, consistently dull and features the most average PlatinumGames combat we can remember. On paper, the concept of a game like this bathed in the studio’s signature style is an appealing one, but sadly there’s nothing about the Platinum shine that’s evident in Babylon’s Fall.

  • Combat can be fun in short bursts.
  • Terrible visuals.
  • Dripping in the worst live game tropes.
  • Dull, repetitive missions.
  • Extremely overpriced.
