I thought The Surge was a pretty mixed bag, but i was glad i got to get my hands on a copy when everything was said and done. Well, if you’re still wondering if you should pick up a copy of Deck 13’s newest game, you can now try the first few hours of free. If you decide you do want to buy the game, all of your progress in the demo will carry over to the full game, so you don’t have to worry about re-beating the games bosses.
I gave The Surge a 5.75/10 citing cheap boss fight, poor level layouts and mishandled upgrades as some of my main issues. However, i did find the game to be an interesting take on the Soulslike formula and think fans of this particular kind of experience should at least give it a shot. And now you no longer have to take my word for it; go download the demo and see for yourself if The Surge is for you.
