Blackwind is a top-down sci-fi action game that puts you in the shoes of a teenager trapped inside a prototype battle armor suit during an alien invasion. Face off against enemies, cut through their ranks, and fight back in a last-ditch attempt to stop a planetary invasion. When the starship Pandora is shot down, James Hawkins finds himself trapped inside a military prototype Battle Frame armor as he hurtles towards Medusa-42. As the Raknos hordes ravage the planet and leave every human mining colony in ruins, James doesn’t have long to discover how to operate the Battle Frame if he wants to survive his dangerous surroundings and find his missing father.

Blackwind is an ambitious game that proves it can do it all – just not at once. The combat is satisfying and frequent, but the framerate will buckle when the game is at its most fun (even on a PS4 Pro). The story is more satisfying than it lets on, but the occasional line reading deflates the narrative in spots. Puzzle solving is engaging and platforming is well done, but without a guiding hand it can be tough to discern at times – and that's alright. Like puberty, progress is an awkward, gangly stage of existence few want to go through, but Drakkar Dev is courageous enough to undergo the process and we should show our gratitude. Whether solo or with a friend, Blackwind is worth a look at should you need to scratch that mech itch or satiate your destructive urges.
