I didn’t mind Citadel. It was the first of its style that I have ever actually played. I now realize the open world sandbox “do whatever you want” kind of games are not really for me, but I can easily see fans of this genre can have some fun here even with the shallow quest system, some clunky controls and the technical issues.
There’s clearly a lot of time and effort that has been put in to Citadel: Forged with Fire. An impressive amount of detail has gone into the systems and world and for those who get into the swing of things, this will likely hold their attention for quite some time. Unfortunately, the gathering and combat is tedious, the UI and control scheme is maddeningly unhelpful and to achieve anything noteworthy takes far, far too long.
It isn’t all terrible, and I do feel that with some attention focused on quality of life improvements and perhaps a little more respect for the player’s time there is potentially a really fun game underneath. There are lots of caves and interesting things to explore which have loot in them, as well as enemy camps to raid, dungeons to delve into and mysterious monoliths that will provide you with a temporary buff. There is some potential with the different crafting recipes as well as the items you can find in chests and in dungeons to really experiment with different builds.
