Colleague Christian Schwarz from GameStar Plus writes about the game:
So who is Forspoken worthwhile for? If you are looking for a crammed open world in the style of Assassin’s Creed, you will be disappointed. However, if you want to experience a story worth playing with an unconventional heroine and, depending on your taste, have a certain tolerance for foreEsports Extrasshame, the game can be something for you. Fans of gripping battles, magic diversity and fast gameplay will also get their money’s worth, as will admirers of beautiful graphics.
That’s what the GamePro test says
We also addressed the wasted potential of Forspoken in our PS5 test. Where we had a lot of fun with the brisk parkour system and the fights loaded with effects, the world and the story of the game were less convincing.
