    Unimpressive 50%

    If we consider it as indie it is a good game, but to be an RPG it has too many shortcomings. it's extremely overrated, and I don't understand how it got all this success, a lot of things are taken from EarthBound

    Positive points
    -Music
    -Decent gameplay, but not suitable for farming, in the long run it is really boring
    Negative points
    -The story is trivial and linear, little to say -Irritating and stereotyped characters -Some really bad bosses, like Muffet -Lore unclear and that the author has stopped exploring, preferring to creat... Read More

    Great 100%

    Okay, enough with the odd call backs. Here's the deal. You probably saw those kind of reviews tons of times, so I'll make it straight: You want to play the most interesting indie in the recent years? See for yourself why the VGAs adwards make no sense? Perhaps you are kind of tired of JRPGs and you want to see something... different? Or maybe play something with a very good OST? Then congratulations, I think you are in the right place. Let's s...

    Alright 80%

    I played this game on February 2017 (After the trend has ended basically) and I think the game isn't bad at all. There is few actual gameplay and many (often boring) dialogues, but I think that if you take the game chill without thinking about the big amoung of people who idolize the game, it can even surprise you. The story is very basic and with almost 0 narrative cues, but I really appreciated the lore of the Underground and of the main charac... Read More

    Positive points
    •Good lore
    •Awesome soundtracks
    •Nice characters (Toriel, Papyrus, Sans, Mettaton, Asgore, Asriel)
    •The game can catch you well
    •Good combat system
    Negative points
    •Neutral and Genocide endings are not very good compared to the Pacifist one. •Bad characters (The ones I didn't mention in the good ones) •Too many dialogues which slow the game down a lot in some pa... Read More

    Alright 80%

    Undertale is a good game (A solid 8), but not a GREAT game. I really thought about uninstalling it a lot of times when i was playing, but i wanted to make this review.

    Positive points
    -Revolutionary gameplay system, where you don't need to fight monsters to win. -A lot of moments that break the forth barrier (Specially the final battle, that was trully genious of Toby Fox) -A gr... Read More
    Negative points
    -Irritating characters (Except for Toriel and Flowey), specially because everybody looks like they loved them. But they are too irritating, and not funny or charismatic. -Too much dialogues (Speciall... Read More

    Very Bad 30%

    I totally don't understand all the hype over this weird game. It's linear, boring and convoluted. It has a few interesting characters and dialogues and... that's it. It feels like some twisted love letter to classic RPG/JRPG fans with lots of specific humor and cryptic references.

    Positive points
    - some funny dialogues
    - a few interesting characters
    Negative points
    - a lot of walking, not much actual gameplay
    - unclear, non-intuitive combat mechanics
    - the visual presentation is definitely not for everybody

    Storyline

    "A long time ago, two races ruled peacefully over the Earth: HUMANS and MONSTERS. One day, a terrible war broke out between the two races. After a long battle, the humans were victorious. They sealed the monsters underground with a magical spell.

    In the year 201X, a small child scales Mt. Ebott. It is said that those who climb the mountain never return.

    Seeking refuge from the rainy weather, the child enters a cave and discovers an enormous hole.

    Moving closer to get a better look... the child falls in.

    Now, our story begins."
