Sometimes a game offers you a better experience than I expected with it in a big way, since watching the game of the Sarmadians Phoenix towards the top for the first time when it was revealed in 2019 and with a completely different title at the time the game did not receive any attention to me, and with watching more of the game after a long absence, I felt that it was a game It offers only a copied experience from other games, specifically the Zelda game, the same wild game and the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey game, but after hours of running this adventure, I can say that Ubisoft has provided us with a distinctive experience and with a very good application, it is inspired by a lot of those two games specifically, but it also adds its own touches and in a way Her sarcastic and attractive narration, her multicolored world and the beautiful art of many moments in her, if the time has come for you to review the game of the Sarmadians, Phoenix to the top.
Sarmadians Phoenix Towards the Summit is an adventure and action game in the third perspective, in which we will play the character of “Phoenix”, a Greek fighter who finds himself on an island and his mission is to save the giants’ attempt to take revenge on them after their previous exile. You can choose to run the adventure with the character of Phoenix as a “male” or “Female” and with a lot of character designs and the ability to change your decision at any time within the game without any effect, now the great fighters have turned into weak creatures and you have to help them to be a help for you in your fight with the evil giants in the game, the exciting story is that Prometheus and Zeus are the ones who tell us The story, ironically, and with a lot of jokes among them, the fact of this matter gives the game a beautiful elegance and distances it from the seriousness and realism that we have seen in the games from which its ideas are borrowed to a large extent, it is an adventure in the Greek era, but sarcastically, and this matter may meet a variation in the level of admiration among the players.
Phoenix begins the adventure as a warrior who misses everything, and here begins the task of trying to collect different forces of weapons, wings, and special abilities as well, and this is done through special missions or trenches in which you pass the puzzles until you reach the end of the stage and with it you get the special ability, the game begins slowly where you miss The abilities are in the first hour or two of the game and you have to walk and explore the limited area at the beginning before the full world opens after obtaining the main abilities. It can be said that the first two hours of the game is the education stage before entering the main adventure, the fighting system depends largely on two main strikes, namely The quick weak strike with the sword and the heavy heavy strike with the ax and benefit from the first when facing weak enemies while the second is for enemies who use shields and try to mix them up for successive or combo strikes, there is a dodging button and also there is an arrow that you get as you advance in the game.
The R1 button to carry out the small sword strike and prepare to press it a lot, while the R2 button to use the ax and the command becomes repeated with time by hitting and avoiding until you start obtaining special abilities that you benefit from by fighting. For example, there is a force like a magnet that allows you to carry things and throw them “exactly as in Zelda is the same wild, ”but what is new here is the possibility of developing its use in different ways, such as attracting the enemy towards you or moving you near the enemy, which are things that you will start to get from your progress in the game.
Also, using the arrow gives you two ways to hit, there is a normal arrow or a moving arrow shot, which is also one of the special abilities that you must obtain to use it. The avoid button also plays an important role in the need to get away from the enemies at the right time before hitting you, which will allow you to slow down the time. Like the game Zelda the same wilderness ”and this thing will give you some seconds from the possibility of hitting the enemy without reacting from him, also as you advance in the game you will get the wings that allow you to fly at the beginning of the matter and then fly later, which is also one of the things that you have to go through the adventure for a longer time Before obtaining it, it is an absolute necessity in the game by navigating its world and also by using it in combat and carrying out some of its own strikes.
The combat system is generally very simple, and there are improvements to everything in it, the character of the Phoenix itself will have to develop his energy and also his fitness rate to be able to climb a longer distance and also run faster for a longer time and fly and fly for a longer time, some areas of the game world will need high fitness to reach them, they are all Great things similar to the game of Zelda the same wilderness, also there is the possibility of taming animals to use them by wandering around the world of the game and it is one of the things that lose its importance once you get the ability to fly as you progress with events, you have to collect sharks or elves or even gold thunderbolts to be able to develop different abilities of the mountain of gods And there is a simple and permanent solution that you can purchase these upgrades with real money from the Ubisoft store.
There are trenches that play the main role in the game and that depend on solving puzzles to progress in them, well whenever you get a new energy or a new ability, you will encounter a trench that tries to use that energy to advance in it, for example there is a trench whose main idea is to try to place the balls in specific places for them, this matter You will have to build roads for the movement of balls from barriers and fill voids in order to go to reach their goal, with other trenches you will see winds coming out from fans from different places and you have to move things depending on the movement of the wind and other fun ideas sometimes and very boring at other times.
The main objective of the game is to try to save or help 4 great warriors so that they help you to defeat the evil giants, so where did we see this story before? Yes, it is the same idea as the story of the Zelda game, the same as the main wildness, but the difference here is that we are in the Greek era and that things are sarcastic in the narration of events. And some of them have transformed into other creatures and they all want to help by bypassing the trenches in their area until they get ready for their strength and with your strength and abilities increasing until you finish all the missions.
The game offers with it cartoon or torrent style constructed, there are not many details on the characters and the world, but there are a lot of colors, the game world is very beautiful at some times and at other times with some boring designs, especially the characters and enemies and personally I have never liked the way the hero of the game is designed even with options Changing its shape or way of movement, especially in cinematic scenes, also one of the things not beautiful in the game is the user interface that makes you feel that it is a beta version of the game and not the final and thank God that the development team has put an option to not show it on the screen during the game, despite the adventure on an island, but there is Different environments between its sections and a great variety of arts, in fact, sometimes this game looks very cool when you see its live world.
The game also presents with a very distinctive music and with a sound representation of all the characters in the Scottish dialect that gives a nice character to the events, especially with the comments of Baramthios and Zeus for the events sarcastically. In terms of designs, especially the areas that take special abilities inside the trenches, but overall, the game revolves well and the Playstation 5 version allows it to be played with 4K accuracy with a speed of 30 frames or dynamic 4K accuracy with a speed of 60 frames and the second option was much better experience.
The game offers with it more than 25 hours of the main adventure and much longer hours if you want to get everything in it and develop all the capabilities and weapons, the content of the game is very excellent and with a completely new title This experience is very good from Ubisoft and with an extraordinary character, the game may actually have been inspired Many of her ideas from the game Zelda the same wild in an exaggerated way, but she also tried to offer different things and developments even for the ideas of the Zelda game, how many games have you actually tried to imitate the same Zelda game? The number is very limited, so this experience is welcome, especially for those who love the world of Greek mythology.
Sarmadians Phoenix towards the summit is a very good attempt from Ubisoft with a completely new title and also to depart from the company’s usual games style, it is not a future open world game with a dark character and it is not a game in the old era with a dark story, but we get here an entertaining adventure game with very large content and a simple game system with its basic idea It’s a good start to something that could be further developed, perhaps in later parts and an experience that surpassed my expectations for it on a personal level.
