Children of Morta has a very compelling story and the way they use death in the game to help progress the story is refreshing. However, there is so much that you need to unlock in the game to try and balance the difficulty in your favour to even complete the first dungeon. This, in turn, ruins the experience by having to play the same dungeon over and over. It is a shame that the same level of effort that was put into the story line was not put into the gameplay, things becomes repetitive quite quickly.
Children of Morta on Xbox One is a traditional roguelike hack and slash RPG situated in a rich fantasy setting that feels alive thanks to an endearing cast of characters in the Bergson family. Its gameplay design and structure are typical of the genre, and can be quite satisfying as new features are unlocked through repeated plays. But what really shines about the experience is the manner in which the tale unfolds, even while running through the same dungeon over and over.
The audio-visual design, coupled with the variety of upgrades, enemies and playable characters, makes Dead Mage's family-focused adventure a joy to play. The biggest issues come from the difficulty of pushing through hefty dungeons alone, which can be easily overcome by joining up with a friend, a move that makes the experience a great deal more fun and shows its true potential. With its diverse storylines, satisfying combat, and remarkable world, Children of Morta is a treat for all action-RPG fans.
