Absolver is a game that wants to be very, very many things.
I’m just not sure all of those things mesh together very well.
At times, Absolver is a numbers-and-technique-heavy martial arts game. Other times, it’s a serendipitous multiplayer get-together, like Journey.
At others still, Absolver is an obtuse single-player adventure in the vein of Dark Souls—complete with loose lore teased out by item descriptions and transient NPCs.
It starts with your custom-created character receiving a mask from a… ghost, or something? Then you start hitting people.
To be fair, Absolver bills itself as a multiplayer game first and a single-player game second.
It’s just jarring to be dropped into the complex game with so very little instruction.
