DOOM composer Mick Gordon is firing on all cylinders for this one, and the voice acting, while incessant, is none too shabby. Sound effects are fab, too.
Atomic Heart is a fantastic looking game, but it’s not without its graphical issues. A progress-blocking bug where the floor failed to appear in a room, being one such example.
Melee combat and gunslinging alike proves gratifying, as do the various abilities granted by your Polymer glove. In the open world sections, things fall apart somewhat.
A strong single-player experience that runs for around 20 hours or so, Atomic Heart feels like it could use a trim. Also, the lack of New Game+ or endgame options is silly.
Missable trophies in an open world game, in which it’s impossible to easily go back and make a second attempt, is just stupid. A patchy, uneven list.
