Description: Experience real sword fighting in Reverence. With total control over your body, you carve your own destiny in this first and third person, multiplayer, combat experience. With the Muscle Memory System, you can intuitively control all your limbs and even tweak your muscle memory to create a unique style. To get the edge necessary to defeat a worthy opponent, you can override your muscle memory to make adjustments to your strikes in real-time. When we have the autonomy to craft the execution of an individual strike when we see an opening a deeper level of immersion unfolds.

Review: I’m sure there was some grand plan with ‘Reverence: The Ultimate Combat Experience’ but that plan has long since been abandoned and you are left with a very expensive tech demo that is hardly a game at all. Don’t get me wrong, there are moments of genius to be found here and graphically it looks pretty good for its age. But there is simply no way I would recommend this for £10.99 and would struggle even if the price was a single quid ($1). This is one idea that is best left on the table and forgotten about, but who knows what it might have become if work continued on it.
