  • Games based on existing properties I'm unfamiliar with are always a bit of a challenge to fully appreciate but in the case of Grimm Eclipse I think my issues with it are deeper than that. Billed as a co-op friendly beat-em-up it sounded like it could be a good time. There are numerous characters to choose from, and befitting the fact that this edition includes the cosmetic DLC you'll additionally be able to gear your character up in a variety of ways to suit your taste. Now, on its surface this all seems to work well enough, with each character playing a bit differently, and at a high level the 3D environments and action not looking shabby at all. All that said though, there's also something sadly shallow about the experience both in terms of gameplay and story. The play itself struggles more than most in the genre with a feeling of repetition and doesn't tend to be satisfying for long, and then pretty unusually for an existing property it feels like there's no real story to help keep you engaged to see what happens next. Fans who want to beat stuff up as their favorite characters may get a kick out of it but otherwise you'll likely want to move onto something else in the eShop.
