This is a game focused on mobility, which is not much of a surprise from the creators of Fall of the Titans, and the improvements it makes to the genre in that regard help elevate a core gameplay loop that has certainly gotten a little tired at this point into something that still feels 100% fresh and addicting.

Fans of Capcom’s Monster Hunter series, or anyone who just enjoys hitting big beasts with massive weapons, should definitely give Phoenix Labs free action RPG a boost.
Intrepid Takes the core gameplay elements of Monster Hunter and strips them down to their basics, throwing players in huge chunks against screen-shaking behemoths while taking out much of the hustle and bustle of the famous franchise of Capcom.
