Five Big Takeaways From Our Time With ReCore

by Elise Favis

ReCore is brought to us by Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune and his Comcept team, and by members of the Metroid Prime team at Armature. Mixing Metroid-style exploration with hopping and gunning similar to Mega Man, ReCore blends these elements into a unique experience of its own. Taking place on a hostile planet known as Far Eden after a failed terraforming project, Joule and her robotic companions fight for survival and attempt to save what's left of the human race.

At Gamescom, we played a portion of ReCore and saw a presentation focusing on customization and the secrets spread around the planet's wasteland. Here are five things we learned.

Your Robot Companions Have Unique Abilities

In ReCore, you have three sidekicks, including the robotic dog Mack, the spider-like droid Seth, and the hard-hitting, mechanical ape Duncan. Each have a lethal strike in combat which deals large amounts of damage, and they all have their own unique skill sets to help you out of sticky situations. Seth can grapple onto vertical or hanging tracks as you hold onto him, to reach higher vantage points and new areas. Duncan's beast-like strength allows him to smash boulders which can unveil loot. Other times, large rocks can unleash enemies; in our demo, Seth broke apart a boulder which let loose a flying, mechanical caterpillar.

Color-Coded Combat Is Tough But Dynamic

ReCore's battles center on a color-coded system. Using the d-pad, you can switch between Joule's blue, red, or yellow ammo to better attack enemies. If your enemy is red, then it would be most effective to use the same colored ammunition to defeat it. Your pulse charge is a handy tool that strikes more damage, as well as takes down enemy shields.

Switching between your corebots gives you an extra edge. For example, because Mack has a yellow core, he's perfect to use against yellow foes. While this may sound simplistic, it becomes a challenge when several different colored enemies are homing in, and some enemies have the ability to instantly change color.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My Worst GAME of 2016 ReCore only has one good element out of this whole game. Loot collecting and leveling up your characters. But what is the point if the rest of your game is short, boring and the story is nonexistent/cheap. Oh and did I mention that the game has multiple game breaking bugs!?Another failure in the list of exclusives by Microsoft. What a shame because this WAS one of my most anticipated games. This game incensed me more than DEAD RISING 4! -_- DO NOT BUY at FULL PRICE! As a matter of fact, stop paying $60 for these games. WAIT FOR SALES!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun game I don't usually write game reviews but for 2 reasons I did on this game,firstly I am tired of paying $60 for a new game and $39 is a step in the right direction,so many worthless over hyped games are released and when you pay $60 for a preorder game and it is a disappointment it would sting less if you only payed $39,this is a fun little game without the violence and the gore,it has great graphics and storyline

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Retro Gaming returns This game is awesome! Yeah, it may not be as polished as other games according to today's standards of what a game should or shouldn't be, but it really stands out on it's own and separates itself from the rest. It has a Metroid esque feel to it and plays like a modern day Mega Man with Action/RPG elements. It reminds me of a retro style run and gun game. The adventure is great, the characters are interesting, and I am having fun playing it. And that's what gaming is all about. If you grew up during the 8-Bit/16-Bit era of the late 80s early 90s like I did, or just appreciate gaming from that era in general, give this a try. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun, even with the small bugs! The gameplay and story are great thus far. It does have longer than normal loading times between each are of the world, but doesnt make me want to throw it away. The story is steady and keeps me wanting to know more. The puzzles are alot of fun. Graphics....well they arent where I would expect them to be, yet they arent as horrible as most people claim. Yes items pop in and out with different movements throughout the world. People are getting too picky with graphics these days and should just play it for the feel and not the look. I would recommend trying this game for yourself before trusting reviews from these big name gamers.
