Recore was reviewed on

#Recore Game oozes charm & the premise is wonderful. But despite this, it struggles to hold your attention after a while, as the long loading times really start to disrupt the flow of the game. And lets not talk too much about the large open game spaces (all that endless walking). Great targeting, and a fun story with some interesting repeatable dungeons. Keeps me coming back for more.

Genre: Single-player Action-adventure, platform

  • Available for:
  • XBOX One
  • PC

I played: around 12 hours


  • A wonderful lead character and some great companions.
  • Easy to pick up and play.
  • The lock-on targeting for Joule's gun is great fun, and it makes the combat easier to play.


  • Inventory can be a pain to manage.
  • Sometimes, you have to walk a very long way at what feels like snail pace. This is unnecessary and aggravating.
  • After a while the long (and i mean long) loading times really start to get to get to you, and they end up disrupting the pace of the game.
  • The game becomes a little complicated with the Cores the more companions you get.
  • The lock-on targeting system can get a little confused sometimes, and, as per Murphy's law, ends up targeting the wrong bad guy at the worst possible moment.
