Yes, the source material of Beast Quest is undoubtedly geared towards children. However, plenty of games can cater towards a younger audience without being entirely devoid of meaningful entertainment. The world of Avantia was initially quite captivating, even though the comparisons to other bigger franchises were omnipresent.
Beast Quest feels unfinished. Its graphical presentation is put to shame by many PS3 titles, and we’re absolutely baffled how the experience doesn’t even manage to run at a consistent framerate on the PS4 Pro. But even if these two aspects were up to snuff, the gameplay and plot are still below average. Beast Quest has very little to offer to even the most die-hard fans of the book series, and everyone else is advised to steer well clear.
All in all, this is a limited action-adventure that really missed the beat, and even the most die-hard of Beast Quest readers will be quite disappointed. While the game does try to use a rather interesting combat system, it doesn't really make up for all the other areas where the game is lacking. The story isn't great and the side quests are uninviting, and so if you want a game that focuses on a decent quest to kill beasts, then maybe you should look at something like Monster Hunter World.
