Omensight: Definitive Edition - Review

The good folks at Spearhead Games repeat the formula that brought them some fame with Stories: The Path of Destinies. Omensight comes to Nintendo Switch after the launch a few months ago of both versions for PC and PS4. And in it, we will have to save the world from destruction by repeating over and over the fateful day of the Apocalypse. Embodying the Harbinger we must defeat Voden. To do this, we must resort to ancestral powers, alliances that seem impossible, collect all the information that the characters keep and discover all the secrets that we can. Only in this way, reliving the same day over and over again, can we unravel reality and save the world from destruction.

Omensight is, eminently, an action game with certain RPG touches. It could go through a hack'n slash since most of the time we will spend it beating enemies, dodging their attacks and adding combos that will affect both the experience gained and thus level up and some amber crystals that will be very useful to buy new abilities, thus giving it a minimal aftertaste of a classic role-playing game. The game in this approach is very simple and direct, advance together with our partner on duty - we will talk about them later - and face the enemies that are in front of us . Small hordes that will vary in quantity and difficulty depending on the time of day that we meet.

And precisely on that day is where practically all grace affects. With Harbinger, once the prologue is completed, we will live forever on the same day. A journey in which Voden, the Apocalypse-bearing Void, awakens from his slumber, destroys the known world and reduces everything to nothing. To do this, a Sorceress summons Harbinger and thus keep the Tree of Life active, which gives us the possibility of going back in time. With this power we will relive the last hours before the total destruction, a precious handful of time that will serve us to discover the truth of the murder of Vera, the so-called Pagan Priestess, and everything that surrounds the War between Pygaria - seat of the Empire- and Rodentia -a Nation that has been annexed to the Empire-. And also, of course, discern who and why has awakened Voden.

Every time we start a new day we will discover details and when we finish, with the inevitable destruction, we will return to the Tree of Life with the Enchantress. From there we will do a small review of the events and the clues obtained and we will decide what our next steps will be. It should be said that we can enable certain clues for the Sorceress to advise us with which of the four possible characters we should start the day . Here it enters the tastes of each one, but we can affirm that by following the clues that are given to us while we play we can deduce for ourselves which is the correct path to choose - if we do not want to repeat days in a useless way we can always resort to the help the Sorceress gives us, of course.

As we said, we have at our disposal four companions with whom to relive the past. At the beginning of the adventure we can only choose Draga, a cat who is a General of the Imperial Armies. Through it we will know, by hearsay or first hand, the other characters. Ratika - a rat leader of the Rodentian rebellion - being the next to be available. Once we live with her for a day, we can have Ludomir as a companion, a powerful bear that keeps more secrets than it seems. And finally to Emperor Indrik an eagle who possesses the knowledge of an ancient power.

Once we get to know them all and unveil their secrets and powers -interesting seals that allow us to open forbidden doors at first-, we will realize that all the strength of Omensight lies in its wonderful and well-woven script. If we can endure repeating the same situations over and over again in pursuit of discovery and letting ourselves be carried away by the story they want to tell us, we will not stop playing until finally defeating Voden . That, to us, has taken us about 15 days - of play, not real - which means about 7 or 8 hours. Hours that could be longer if we reveal absolutely all the secrets and get all the pages of memories that are hidden by the levels.

In the first few paragraphs of this review we have described Omensight, in passing, as a mix of hack'n slash and RPG. In a way it is, a union that works quite well and makes sense. Harbinger is a legendary warrior who only awakens when the world is doomed to destruction. But despite everything, its immense power remains lethargic so we have to unlock skills and thus unleash its full potential. With the experience obtained in one day -based on the discoveries that are made, the more or less aesthetic style that we have when fighting, the memories obtained and even overcome the day without dying- we will level up with which we will learn new increasingly powerful combat techniques. With the amber crystals collected thanks to barrels, vases and hidden chests, we can buy different abilities that will give us a plus of effectiveness as well as improve health and Harbinger's sword. The heart of the matter is to turn our protagonist into a real beast in order to account for Voden when the time comes. And certainly that sense of progress shows as we move forward.

On the other hand, the control system is always based on attack, dodge and counterattack. We will have to be very careful with the enemies -especially if they surround us- and often dedicate ourselves to dodging in order to undertake stronger attacks. On the other hand, we have the charged attacks and the special abilities that give Harbinger a certain advantage in combat. For each enemy injured, our sword will accumulate energy and with it we can make various attacks, grabs and even stop time.

As if this were not enough, our teammates will also have special attacks that will be of great help to clear the area of rivals. These attacks - whose effect and reload speed can also be purchased with amber crystals - will save us in more than one and two dangerous situations.

Omensight, although it is not an excessively difficult game, has up to three levels of difficulty depending on the challenge we want to overcome. The Bosses will obviously be tougher to fight but the small rivals will also give us problems if we are surrounded. In any case, the various difficulties are well balanced and the greatest of all presents a real challenge.

The last lines of this analysis we are going to dedicate to commenting on the graphic, technical and sound aspect of Omensight. This decision is not trivial since perhaps it is in these sections where we can make the greatest criticism. The game works well in a playable and narrative sense but not entirely in a strictly technical sense. And we explain ourselves.

Omensight suffers from stability problems despite having admittedly modest graphics . The modeling of the characters and settings -which have a very attractive design- barely have textures and the explosive effects are simple. Despite this, there are quite marked slowdowns when there is a lot of movement on the screen - fortunately this does not happen often in combat. There are slowdowns even on the loading screen. That speaks badly of the degree of optimization to which they have subjected their product since the study.

And on top of all this we have another added problem such as the continuous loads when we advance through the levels. Rare is the door or lever that does not leave us hanging for a few seconds waiting to continue. This greatly dynamites the pace of the game, becoming quite annoying.

We must also add that there is quite a difference between playing with our Nintendo Switch connected to the dock or doing it in portable mode. In TV Mode the game, within its modesty, looks good and at good resolution, although the stability problems continue. In Portable Mode the resolution drops to almost scandalous minimums , becoming very blurry most of the time.

When it comes to sound, we find quiet melodies that hardly stand out but accompany the action. Possibly the catchiest song is the tune that Ratika sings from time to time accompanied by her balalaika.
