Garshasp

  • Summary: There are few things in this world that allow people worldwide to connect at a human level, and learn from each other's cultures, more than entertainment. Cinema can show us humanity wherever it is filmed, and games can teach us about the world's many cultural myths and legends wherever they are created. When a little Iranian game called Garshasp caught my eye, it showed much promise.

  • Conclusion: All of this must make you think your correspondent here really, really hated Garshasp, and to an extent you’d be correct. Sometimes though, forgiveness does rear its unexpected head and Garshasp can appear less than hateful. On a good day, it’s even approaching mediocre or average. Then you fall into the swamp because the killing animation took you over the edge of your small raft and you die instantly. Sigh.

Garshasp: The Monster Slayer Accessibility Review

8 August 2011
  • Excerpt: If you don't know who Garshasp is, you may want to brush up on your Persian mythology. Garshasp is, if you couldn't tell from the title, a mythological monster slayer and the main character of this game by Fanafzar Game Studios. This studio is based in Iraq and made the game using free software with a team of about nine people. It's a very ambitious action game, but falls a bit short when it comes to accessibility.

Garshasp: The Monster Slayer Review

GameSpot
12 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Dead Mage Studio, the developer behind Garshasp: The Monster Slayer, has clearly played God of War . This third-person action adventure drinks deeply from the well of Kratos and company, attempting to emulate its cinematic use of camera angles, its quick-time events, and its hard-hitting combat. But where God of War is the master, Garshasp is merely the promising student, striking similar notes but lacking what makes its inspiration so easy to love.
  • Pros: Lovely art and bombastic music provide great atmosphere, Good narration, Varied pace, High-quality cutscenes
  • Cons: Busted collision detection, Wall-sliding sections are awful, A number of control problems, Combat lacks impact, Bugs

Garshasp: The Monster Slayer PC Review

DarkZero
14 June 2011
  • Excerpt: The best independent games tend to be associated with simple, refreshing or unique gameplay mechanics or design, while normally restricted in scope. Dead Mage Studio on the other hand has gone for the ambitious challenge of tackling the action genre, drawing comparison with the epic series God of War . Garshasp: the Monster Slayer is inspired by Persian mythology, and follows the tale of a warrior.

Garshasp: The Monster Slayer

  • Excerpt: Garshasp The Monster Slayer är ett actionäventyr från det något slutna landet Iran. Härkomsten bör ses som en ögonbrynshöjare och av den anledningen förtjänar spelet uppmärksamhet. Utvecklaren, Dead Mage Studio, har i första hand använt sig av open source-mjukvara för att utveckla sitt spel som så tydligt är inspirerat av God of War. Klon, är ett passande ord i sammanhanget. En misslyckad och trasig sådan.
